Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Matthew 5:6 (NIV)
The Desire to be Filled
Are you looking for fulfillment? Have you tried everything that is supposed to help you? You’ve heard you need more self-care, more good works to others, better relationships, less responsibility and stress.
So you’ve tried relaxing more, giving more, loving more and leaving more behind. But still, that sense of fulfilled contentment is elusive.
An Answer for You
I have good news for you! You need only one thing to satisfy the thirst and hunger that is driving you. It is the righteousness that is found only by believing in Jesus Christ and his loving sacrifice for you.
By desiring Jesus and his righteousness above all things, you will receive all the other things you need for long-term, deeply satisfying fulfillment. You will have the peace that passes all understanding in every circumstance.
You will be filled with hope that comes from believing. You will have the joy of the Lord. He will give you supernatural love for his people.
What You Gain
No, you will not wake up with a Pinterest-perfect life. But guess what? God knows that will make you filled. However, you will live life abundantly, filled with living water that flows from you.
You will have the privilege of eternal life with Jesus.
You will be filled with everything that matters.
Thank you God, for filling my need for righteousness through your Son, Jesus. Amen.
