Feeding on God’s Greatness

  

“Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.”  Psalm 145:3

 

The praise of God stems from the worth of God, and that worth is greater than anything we can possibly imagine.

There is food here for our souls.  There is nourishment for our weary and tired bodies in the greatness of God.  Jesus himself said that he is the bread of life.  His greatness, compassion, mercy and love can and will feed us.  His tender mercies and compassion are new every morning (Lamentations 3:23).  When we wait for Him, He comes to encourage us and minister to our need.  He brings the food, he serves the food; he is the food.

 

Spiritual hunger is wonderful in that it draws us to the Lord and makes us wait on Him for food that will truly nourish us.  Spiritual thirst is good in that it parches our soul and creates a languishing for his goodness and grace. 

 

The world promises satisfaction but never delivers.  The Lord promises satisfaction and never fails.  “He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.”  Psalm 107:9

 

Christian people are largely a people excited about the wrong things.  We get excited about and trust in people, who ultimately let us down.  We get excited about success, careers, new ideas, and growing in our knowledge. But the luster of these things soon fades once we have them.      

 

Our internal radar is constantly scanning the horizon, looking for things that we think might make us happy.  Shiny lures catch our eye and we bite.  Social media and online living constantly bombard our minds with things that look good, appear fun, and sound interesting.  We feast at a smorgasbord of fine delicacies, each promising just a little bit more happiness to put on our plate.

 

But God alone knows what we ultimately need.  It is the Lord himself whom we long for.  “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat. . . listen, listen to me, and eat what is good . . .” (Isaiah 55:1-2)

 

God alone knows what will feed your soul and encourage you today.  Go to him and ask him for a large portion of his blessing.
