Taste that Satisfies

3 Feb

God’s Word:   Matthew 5:6  “You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God.  He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.”

Jesus’ Message to Me: (My interpretation of what Jesus is saying to me through these verses)

I came to earth to give you a “taste” of God.  Have you ever paused to thank God for the amazing ability he gave you for “tasting?”  Seeds are each one of God’s tiny computers.  Within that tiny seed it holds the information for what it can grow into.  The small apple seed holds within it the “taste” of the apple.  The corn seed knows what the corn will “taste” like.  He did this just for you to give you health, nourishment, and variety to spice your life.  When something you eat delights your taste buds—thank God.

There is more to happy living that a good appetite for food.  Happy is the person who has “tasted” the joy and blessing of “feeding” their spirit from the wellspring of the Bible—God’s direct connection to your spirit.  There is nothing like it!  In the same way that food “satisfies” your hunger, the Bible satisfies your deep spiritual hunger like nothing else can.

As there are many foods that entice but do not nourish—there are many teachings that entice but do not nourish the spirit.  They give a false satisfaction and cause you to miss the blessing of the real nourishment.  The Bible is the True North of spiritual teachings.  Mankind hungers for true spiritual nourishment for I have created that need in them.  I am depending upon My followers to be My hands and feet in taking the “food—the nourishment” from My Word and creating an appetite for God before their world.

Jesus’ Question for Me: What are you doing to help “feed” the spiritually starving millions?

Jesus’ Promise to Me: The only satisfying spiritual food comes directly from the Bible.

My Song to Jesus:   Satisfied    by Clara Tear Williams

All my life I had a longing
For a drink from some clear spring,
That I hoped would quench the burning
Of the thirst I felt within.

Refrain
Hallelujah! I have found Him
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longings,
Through His blood I now am saved.

Feeding on the husks around me,
Till my strength was almost gone,
Longed my soul for something better,
Only still to hunger on.

Refrain
Hallelujah! I have found Him
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longings,
Through His blood I now am saved.

Poor I was, and sought for riches,
Something that would satisfy,
But the dust I gathered round me
Only mocked my soul’s sad cry.

Refrain
Hallelujah! I have found Him
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longings,
Through His blood I now am saved.

Well of water, ever springing,
Bread of life so rich and free,
Untold wealth that never faileth,
My Redeemer is to me.

Refrain
Hallelujah! I have found Him
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longings,
Through His blood I now am saved.
