God wants to fill me up.
When I’m empty and need Him. He’s right here.
When I’m not eating past satisfaction. When I stop at my five.
When I stay within my pleasant boundaries, I remain spiritually hungry, my heart wants to be nourished.
That’s when I allow Him to fill me, as I turn to Him.
2 Cor. 3:16; “But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”
When He fills me, I won’t crave excess food. It really is that simple.
I’ll reach my God-designed size and weight.
But it requires that I trust that God WILL satisfy my hungers.
All of them, even the deepest, most hidden hungers.
This is a place of struggle.
“Will He really satisfy my heart completely?”
My renewal journey is to rest and linger in God’s presence.
To believe it is important enough to be top priority.
Above all others.
I must allow it to be of utmost importance.
It is how I can deepen our relationship.
It’s not about being in crisis or in pain.
But I have emptiness and need churning within.
I am starting to view this as a great adventure.
To wait for true physical hunger.
Eating just enough to satisfy.
I feel pressured to eat more food than my stomach needs.
That is when God will fill me.
When I’m satisfied with my portion on my plate.
But crave more.
It’s God’s food I need.
Food that satisfies.
John 6:32; Jesus told them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never become hungry again,
and whoever believes in me will never become thirsty.”
I crave the meat of obedience.
The milk of the Word.
Bread of Life.
Honey of God.
He will be my filling, my fullness.
I must relinquish control of all things.
It is time to release burdens that God does not want me to carry.
Tell Him every secret.
All the disordered eating.
All the hurting, deep within.
I am powerless to change all this emptiness within.
I ask Him for greater strength.
And He reinforces my boundaries.
Days pass and I keep telling Him.
The way I have been.
My eating, the struggles.
The disillusioned feelings.
How deep is deep?
I hear my mouth confess the truth.
Of fleshly desires.
“My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, you, O God, will not despise.” Psalm 51:17
Honesty with Him and with myself.
One hundred percent.
Wait, what is this?
I feel light and carefree.
John 8:36; “When the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”
I am a Child of Liberty.
No longer a child of bondage.
For He has heard my cry.
He has rescued me and filled me.
Tomorrow will be a brand new day.
Never lived before.
A day of hope.
Faith and filling.
Liberty and Victory as never before.
So how about you? Where are you on the liberty scale? Are you feeling more the liberty or the bondage? Maybe He’s calling you closer to His side too? Will you choose to be completely honest with Him today? If you wait, what do you think will happen?
