How often do we go to the frig with great hopes of finding something to satisfy that craving, the craving we really aren’t sure what we want, but we want something. So we reach around, dig through, push things aside looking for fulfillment.
This is true too with our souls as well. We hunger, and often rummage around to find fulfillment, through people, possessions and position. David declared in Psalm 63:1 “O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you, my soul thirsts for you… .” When God created man, He created him body and soul. Our bodies being from the dust of earth, it is therefore nourished by the earth. Yet our souls where created by the breath of God, Genesis 2:7 “The LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.” ‘Living being’, this is the translated Hebrew word for soul. It is the breath of God that nourishes the soul, HE is our souls only fulfillment.
The Psalmist beautifully shares, “For He (the Lord) satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.” (Ps. 107:9) Today, as we begin our day, pouring that cup of coffee, snacking on that bagel, may we seek as David did, “O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you, my souls thirsts for YOU!
