“We all have needs and desires in our hearts, but if we do not have God’s vision for our lives, we set out to satisfy ourselves, causing us to step out of God’s will and outside of His design.
When we step out of His will to fulfill ourselves, we move away from His protection, His blessing, and His favor over our lives. In turn, fulfilling our own desires can lead us to compromise, stepping out of the boundaries that God has for us making us susceptible to the schemes of the enemy.
When we are not finding fulfillment from God we become vulnerable to the traps that the enemy has set before us to keep us from God’s best.
We become weak and vulnerable, and the enemy just loves it when we are weak and vulnerable so that he can enter into the scene!
. . . The enemy knows our “more” is with God, and God alone.
He absolutely does not want US to know this, because as soon as we receive this revelation, he knows we become a threat to his dark kingdom.
And we become free.
. . . He satisfies our hunger in ways beyond human comprehension.
Nothing can compare to who He is and what He has for our lives. The only way we will ever know these ridiculously amazing truths, is if we begin to take steps away from the distractions and towards the stillness of a life with Him. It’s where rivers never run dry, where His peace never leaves us, and where His joy becomes our strength to persevere.
It’s where the mundane becomes an incredible adventure, where the supernatural becomes natural in our everyday, and where we taste and see that there is nothing that will ever satisfy our cravings and that deep hunger within like Him.
‘Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in Him! Fear the Lord, you His godly people, for those who fear Him will have all they need. Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing.’ Psalm 34:8-10 NLT” – Life is Muddy (book)
I pray this meets you and encourages you to spend time with Him.
