WHAT SUSTAINS YOU?
“Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.” - 1 Peter 2:2-3
What are you really longing for?
We always feel God’s goodness in our lives but there’s always a point where we feel empty and hopeless. We crave and long for something that our hearts can’t merely explain and that is desire for His holiness that the Creator infused in our human nature.
Why do we crave?
We crave because
1) God’s word sustains us
If you desire for your faith, pray before the word of God.
“Surely, God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.” - Psalm 54:4
“Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.” - Psalm 55:22
2) God’s word strengthen us
“My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to Your word.” - Psalm 119:28
3) God’s word satisfies us
” Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare. Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David.” - Psalm 55:1-3
Only Jesus will satisfy us.
To understand the Book in real perception, it is necessary to know the author before you read His book.
