Jesus said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'”
– Matthew 4:4
If our aim in life is the satisfaction of our material and emotional needs, then there will always be a feeling of emptiness in us – an empty space that nobody and nothing seems to be able to fill it.
If our aim in life is to seek to do as God directs, and accept and allow that His will done as we strive to provide for our material and emotional needs, then we will be satisfied, because God will fill those “empty spaces” with His love and reassurance.
When we entrust all we do to God, we will be satisfied, because our main aim in this life will be to get to get to the next – to spend an everlasting life in His glorious presence!
My Lord and my God,
You are my nourishment.
Without You, Lord, I am nothing.
Without You in my heart,
all that I possess is worthless
and all my emotions are self-centred and hollow.
Lord, let me be guided by You,
by Your Word,
by Your precepts and commandments,
so that my life on this earth may be complete,
until You call me to Your side,
where I shall live in Your glorious presence – forever!
