When the World Has Failed to Satisfy

“If you don’t stand firm in your faith, you won’t stand at all.” {Isaiah 7:9b}

When we aren’t standing firm our faith, our life can be perfect yet feel like it’s falling apart.

So maybe you have felt empty at some point in your life. You might be a fan of certain movies, and have watched every movie by that studio. You probably smiled throughout the movie, but realized when you got home that it still didn’t bring you joy. Maybe you read thousands of books, trying to fill this longing for something more-this gaping hole in your heart.

We fill our minds with stories and even sinful things trying to satisfy this hunger in our soul. We can watch all the Christian movies in the world. We can read every inspirational story. We can raise our hands in worship to look holy, and go to every conference. But the thing is? We can’t be satisfied by this world. These things can numb us, and for a moment we forget how hungry our souls are for God…but deep inside we know, Christ alone satisfies.

There is a hole in our hearts that only God can fill. Jesus is the only One who can satisfy our souls’ desire. Even reading a best-selling Christian inspirational book can’t satisfy us; only God’s Word can. Unless we are pursuing Christ in His Word, we will constantly feel empty.

A life apart from God is never a full life. Until we seek God and stand firm in our faith, we can feel like we’re wandering and feel distant from God. Walk with God and let Him lead you.

Come to Jesus. Let Him satisfy your soul again. Stop chasing after worthless things, and grow in your faith by digging in God’s Word. He will radically change your life; just come to Him.

Blessings, Moriah
