On Thursdays I teach 15 Jr. High/Sr. High girls a class on Home Design and Decorating. This week our devotion centered around the world's food that doesn't satisfy: money, media, fame, ambition - things that alone aren't wrong, but the kind of food that doesn't feed the soul and satisfy true spiritual hunger.
If we really want to be satisfied we will do the will and work of our heavenly Father. That includes putting His pleasure before our own. We have to stop striving for our own desires, our own ambitions and our own satisfaction. Seek to please Him alone. That food will really satisfy you! At the end everything else leaves you hungry.
So I've had to ask myself this week, "What counterfeit food am I trying to fill up on? What should be passed over? What should be replaced with His fare that alone will satisfy? For me these are questions that the Lord and I are "discussing" together in prayer.
