As Mercy Gathers Dust

“…for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.” Psalm 107:1

We have all done it. Open the fridge and stare…throw open the pantry doors and scan… go shopping and browse. What are we looking for? What hunger are we trying to fill? Why are we so thirsty? Are we just bored or are do we really crave?

Every child was born with an appetite and thirst for the One who held that child in His hands prior to birth. There is a craving and comfort that we search that can only be found when we seek our Creator. From birth we have growling in our spirit that longs for something to fill us up. We respond to those hunger pains with food from the world. We open our earthly pantries and reach for power, moving humility to the back. We open a can of judgment while mercy gathers dust. Our pantries which should be filled with heart healthy items but are cluttered with self-made indulgences.

When we look to Christ who fills us with the good things…peace, joy, contentment and satisfaction we will begin to be heart healthy. When we look to God to satisfy that insatiable thirst for something different we will find refreshment. There will be seasons of thirst and seasons of satisfaction but we will always find the good things of God apart from our circumstances.

Once we truly pursue the power of God our spiritual pantries will be full of the things of the Spirit…boxes and boxes of grace…cans stacked upon cans of forgiveness…bags full of compassion and mercy. It will not matter what mood we are in for when we open our pantries everything we reach for will be heart healthy.

Very well written article. The illustrations are well placed and easy to follow. It's funny though as the items the Lord fills our pantry with become numerous because we find ourselves in the business of food distribution to those who need it rather than as a stock pile. http://managedsurrender.com/managed-surrender/mirrors/inheritance/
