Nothing Else Satisfies
My soul yearns for You [O Lord] in the night, yes, my spirit within me seeks You earnestly. (ISAIAH 26:9)
The world makes it easy for us to fill our ears with all kinds of things that drown out the voice of God and push Him far, far into the background of our lives. However, the day comes for every person when only God remains. Everything else in life eventually passes away; when it does, God will still be there.
The Bible teaches that what is known about God is evident to all because He has made Himself known in the inner consciousness of humankind (see Romans 1:19Ė21). Each person will someday stand before Him and give an account of his or her life (see Romans 14:12). When people donít want to serve God with their lives, when they want to go their own way, they find ways to hide from and ignore this instinctive knowledge of their Creator, Who wants to talk to them and guide them in the way they should go.
The truth is, whether people try to hide from God or not, nothing can satisfy our longing for Him except communion and fellowship with Him. Even when people try to ignore Him, deep down they would love to hear His voice.
I encourage you to satisfy your longing for God by spending time with Him, sitting in His presence, and listening to His voice.
Godís word for you today: Live your life in such a way that you have no fear or dread of standing before God when your life on Earth is over.
