Jesus offers each of us a sure way to experience peace, contentment and complete satisfaction. In John He tells us:
I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. … All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. —John 6:35 & 37
Jesus embraces us with an unconditional love—one that will never cease. Just when we think there is no hope, understanding or way out of our predicament, our loving Lord speaks words of affirmation and encouragement to our hearts.
In times of extreme difficulty, it is important to trust Him and to not faint with weariness. Remember, whatever God does in our lives will end up being for our good and for His praise and glory. Are you prepared for the battle? Are you spiritually nourished? Are you partaking of the true Bread of Life—the One who will sustain you through times of victory and disappointment?
If you are eating from the bowl of the world’s expectations and dreams, then you will be sorely disappointed, and unfit for victory in your spiritual and emotional life. You can spend your lifetime trying to gain wealth and prominence, but no amount of money is sufficient to purchase the gift that God offers you through the life of His Son.
If you want to be sure of your eternal salvation, then take and eat of God’s beloved manna. There is not a man or a woman on earth who can satisfy your needs like Jesus. Will you receive the true bread from heaven?
Prayer: Father, please forgive me for trying to receive nourishment and contentment from this world. Thank You for Jesus, the Bread of Life, who perfectly nourishes me. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. —John 6:32, NIV
