FULFILLMENT FOR THE THIRST DEEP INSIDE

FULFILLMENT FOR THE THIRST DEEP INSIDE

"ON TOP OF THE WORLD AND EMPTY INSIDE"

“ON TOP OF THE WORLD AND EMPTY INSIDE”

“For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.”

(Jeremiah 2:13 – KJV)

“My people have committed a compound sin:
they’ve walked out on me, the fountain
Of fresh flowing waters, and then dug cisterns—
cisterns that leak, cisterns that are no better than sieves.”

(Jeremiah 2:13 -The Message Bible)

 

Where are you seeking fulfillment today for the thirsty longing that exists deep in your soul?

Take a minute and be honest with yourself.

Are you looking to Christ, the fountain of Living Water, who ever emits fresh, satisfying Water that can soothe your parched and thirsting soul?

Or have you looked away from Him and are digging cisterns elsewhere for yourself with the hope of finding water that will quench that thirst deep down inside?

Cisterns of increased riches, material gain, a nicer home, clothes or car,

Cisterns of greater career accomplishments, educational achievements, business success, social notoriety, or ministry involvement,

Cisterns of a more attractive body, a flawless face, more charisma, more influence,

Cisterns of sex, partying, carousing, alcohol or drugs,

Cisterns of the company of others, acceptance by others, esteem by others, value from others?

Are you looking to Christ, the fountain of Living Water, who ever emits fresh cool Water that can soothe your parched and thirsting soul?

Or have you looked away from Him and are digging cisterns for yourself with the hope of finding water that will quench that thirst deep down inside?

If you have looked away from Christ and are hewing cisterns for yourself with the hope that they will quench the thirst and longing in the depth of your soul, you can rest assured that whatever water you may find in those cisterns will become stagnant and stale and the cisterns will eventually crack, leak and break, inevitably leaving you more thirsty than before?

Where are you seeking fulfillment today for the thirsty longing that exists deep in your soul?

If you have looked away from the Lord and are digging cisterns for yourself with the hope of finding water that will quench that thirst deep down inside, today God says to you;-

“Wait and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing].

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness [the profuseness of spiritual joy].

Incline your ear [submit and consent to the divine will] and come to Me; hear, and your soul will revive; and I will make an everlasting covenant or league with you, even the sure mercy (kindness, goodwill, and compassion) promised to David.”

(Isaiah 55:1-3 – Amplified Bible)

“Jesus answered her, All who drink of this water will be thirsty again.
But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life.”

(John 4:13, 14- Amplified Bible)

“The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, the true Christians) say, Come! And let him who is listening say, Come! And let everyone come who is thirsty [who is painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, and strengthened]; and whoever [earnestly] desires to do it, let him come, take, appropriate, and drink the water of Life without cost.”

(Revelation 22:17 – Amplified Bible)

By divine design, there is nothing or no-one other than God who can quench that dull aching thirst and longing for fulfillment that you have deep down in your soul……nothing or no-one…SELAH!

Recognize and accept this truth then make a decision today to stop digging and hewing cisterns, broken cisterns that will leak and can never ever fulfill you the way that you long to be fulfilled and instead, turn to God, the source of the thirst-quenching Living Water that you crave and allow Him to fill your cup.

“Oh, that men would praise [and confess to] the Lord for His goodness and loving-kindness and His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul and fills the hungry soul with good.”

(Psalm 107:8, 9 – Amplified Bible)

May you from now on always seek to find your uttermost fulfillment in Him and Him alone.

Be encouraged!
