For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. — Psalm 107:9
The Bible cries out with one recurring truth: God quenches the thirst and satisfies the hunger of those who seek him. So often we try to soothe the ache in our soul and fill the emptiness in our heart with what is only a temporary satisfaction that only God’s presence can fill. Let’s refuse every false satisfaction and seek the LORD!
Forgive me, dear Father, for trying to find the satisfaction for my soul’s hunger in what is not truly sustaining. (Confess the area of temptation that most often causes you to stumble in this area — sex, status, possessions, economic security, chemical dependency, abusing food, body identity, etc.) As I seek you, dear LORD, please make your presence known as you satisfy my spiritual thirst and satiate my soul’s hunger. In the name of Jesus, my Lord. Amen.
