Psalm 34:8, Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.
1 Peter 2:3, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
The New Yorker recently ran a pretty fascinating story about the ways our stomachs control our worlds. Here’s a quote from that article, “Hunger seems like a simple phenomenon: the stomach rumbles until it’s fed, then it’s quiet until it rumbles again.” Then, of course, we feed it again.
There is a simple truth in that quote, our stomachs are only satisfied for a little while and then it drives us to eat again. That’s the way God made us physically, but it’s also the way God made us spiritually. Spiritually speaking, we will never be satisfied; we can enjoy a great worship service, sermon, bible study or Christian song and feel satisfied. However, our spiritual stomachs will rumble again, and if we don’t feed our lives spiritually, we will be unfulfilled in life. It seems that I meet a lot of people who are just unfulfilled in life, and too often it’s due to not feeding ourselves spiritually.
Our lack of life fulfillment is nothing more than our spiritual stomachs rumbling, saying feed me.
Think about it…and have a blessed day!
