Like A Fire

Let Your presence come and saturate
Every part of me make me new
Let Your Spirit come and move within
Fill me once again cause I need more

We are a peculiar people. We are constantly on the move, constantly searching for some type of fulfillment. Whether that would be relationships, friendships,  a fun time, more money, etc, we are looking for something that could satisfy us completely. It’s like we were born with this hunger in our hearts that motivates us to go out and take in whatever can fill us. And guess what?

It’s wasn’t always like this.

When God first created us, he created us with a purpose and specific design; to worship Him and share in all of His glory.  In the garden, we were set, always being filled with the presence of God, never experiencing pain, sorrow, hate, hunger, or thirst. Always and constantly being satisfied with the life that was given to us. Never doubting, never complaining and always trusting in the creator of the universe, our father. That sure does sound way different from today.

I know that you know what has caused this great change amongst humanity. I know you know that sin wages a constant war in our hearts to distract us from living the way God intended. What I don’t know, is what are you doing about it? Are you letting your hunger and thirst get the best of you by going to all the wrong places for just a taste of fulfillment? All those places that are essentially not of God, not of righteousness? Are you not looking to God as your all in all? The God who satisfies.

It’s hard.

So many things pull at us today and you know it. But take heart, even though the world may be pulling away at you, through Christ Jesus, you can overcome the world. He has laid the foundation down for you to walk freely once again down the path of His righteous in communion with the father personally. This path is straight but it is narrow.

I encourage you to take the risk, face the opposition, and make the tough decisions to stay on the path. Because my brothers and sisters, there you will fill satisfaction like you have never experienced. Just let God reign in your hearts and your yoke will be easy and your burden will be lite.

Be Blessed!
