“Jesus replied, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’” John 6:35, NLT
Many wander through life, wondering if this is all there is. Maybe live hungry for something more, often feeling drained, worn and tired. Jesus takes authority over this age-old problem, for He tells us He is the Great I Am. He is more than sufficient for our every need, burden, or pain. He alone can fill every hole in our hearts.
Our all-sufficient God satisfies, for all is fulfilled in Him. In Him we are no longer hungry. In Him our thirst that seemed endless is finally quenched. In Him is Life, a life filled with the abundant fruit of His Spirit here on Earth, and a life everlasting with Him for all eternity.
This life is full of hurt, pain, and suffering, but this life is not all there is. There is all-sufficient life given to us by the Great I Am, our Creator – our Savior, and His name is Jesus Christ.
Reflect on these lyrics by David Crowder, and seek the One who seeks you, the One who offers to satisfy you hunger and quench your thirst.
There's no space that His love can't reach
There's no place where we can't find peace
There's no end to Amazing Grace
Take me in with Your arms spread wide
Take me in like an orphan child
Never let go, never leave my side
~David Crowder, “I Am”, Neon Steeple
Father, open my eyes that I may see. Open my heart that I may know and understand how sufficient You are. Lord I don’t want to hunger and thirst anymore. Fill me Oh Lord; let my cup overflow with all of who You are, because of what You have done for me. I want to rest in Your all-sufficient grace, no longer needing anything of this world. What I really need is You, my Great I Am. Amen.
Is there an area in your life where you feel that a need is not being met? Take it to Him in prayer, lay it at His feet, and trust in His grace that He is who He says He is.
