Topic: Hunger (11/08/04)

TITLE: Never Hunger or Thirst

As I viewed this week's topic, I asked myself, what could I write? I began to ponder the thought about hunger and as I looked in my bible's topical index, I came to John 6:35. "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger and he who believes in Me shall never thirst."


God's word is fulfilling but never ending. There is always room for seconds and the seconds never run out. the bread that He has for us does not spoil or rot and the watering of His word never dries up. I have had my dry seasons, times when I have felt as if I were alone, but all that I had to do is grab my bible and eat on His word and my void was fulfilled.

There have been times when our pantry was down to a bare minimum and just in time, God sent a neighbor or friend with food or money to bless us. There were times when we could not pay our utilities and having done all we stood on the word of God and watched it work. One time in particular, our water was shut off and we continued to believe God for the finances to pay our bill. That night it started to rain and it rained for two days. We grabbed all the buckets that we could find and collected enough water to cook and bathe with. Of course we boiled it first, but praise God he supplied it.

Sheila, trusting God for our provisions is how he wants us to live. Well said.

His bread multiplies. Isn't it awesome?

I've been where you were. In fact just this morning, as I finished praying for a hard situation, that I've created myself, He quietly said to me, "Watch me Work."

God supplies all our needs. All we have to do is to trust Him. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks to God for messages like this one! Tears came to my eyes as I realized how faith in God's Word and never faltering but believing He would provide brought an abundance of water to fill your buckets. A great testimony and how He brings favors to His children.
