Come with a Hunger Come with a Thirst Be Filled to Overflow
Two of our basic physical needs as humans are for food and drink. God, our creator placed within us a trigger switch that lets us know that our body is hungry and or thirsty. This happens in our natural bodies. That same principle is operating in our spirit, the part that God gave to every human. This spirit has a longing that only He can completely fill. Some try various things and ideologies and still come up empty, but Jesus is saying, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls” (Matthew 11:28-29, KJV, Emphasis mine). He is the only One who can supply, or better yet, fill that need. He made you and He know all about you and still says, come.
Come with a Hunger, Come with a Thirst, Be Filled to Overflow was written for people who have a need, an emptiness that nothing has completely satisfied or filled. It is a God-induced hunger and thirst that He purposely placed in everyone. Many have “bumped” into Him along the way, not realizing at the time that He had set up the meeting. He cares that much and wants to completely fill those hungry and thirsty places. Matthew 5:6 states, “They shall be filled.”
This narrative, as I call it, is not one where you must start at the beginning to get a full understanding as to what is being addressed. If one chooses to start at the end or in the middle, it will be okay because all of it is about the multifaceted Holy God and how He has always had a plan to give each and every one what was needed in their life, and that included you! If you choose not to start at the beginning, you will still find His richness interwoven throughout the pages. He so much wants to fill each of us with what is needed to face and live this life while enlightening others along this journey. In some areas you will find it to be a devotional that day, giving direction for the many changes and challenges life brings. At times, you may find yourself laughing as you begin to see Jesus as both man and God, experiencing life as you do with its ups and downs. Tears of joy may fall from time to time because your spirit is in agreement by the thoughts He has been giving to you and now it is right before your eyes. Prepare to learn of some mysteries that you may have never heard before, but wondered about this never-ending Love story between humans and Divinity. God BLESS!
