Something that I’ve been led to believe is that if you believe a lie, for you it might as well be a truth. Something else that I believe is that what we believe will reveal itself in our actions. This frightens me, because I see in my actions evidence of wrong beliefs. From what I observe about myself, I believe that true satisfaction comes from times spent with people, or even just a good meal. However, this is not true!
John 6: 34-36 They said therefore unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. Jesus said unto them. I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger, and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, that ye have seen me, and yet believe not.
I say, “Lord, I’m so hungry! I must be fed! I must feed myself!” and he says, “Kyla, you can only be truly satisfied in me.”
What is true? Jesus is the only one who can satisfy us. However, we cry out,
“But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” And Jesus said to him, If you can! All things are possible for one who believes. Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, I believe; help my unbelief! (Mark 9:23-24)
Lord, I believe you are the one who can ultimately satisfy! Help my unbelief! I am so frustrated with myself and my own unbelief. I thought that wasn’t an issue for me, but obviously it is. I was so self assured, but obviously I can’t do it on my own. Keep on helping me. I love you.
