The phrase came to me as God led me to Isaiah 55. We all have tried to do things to satisfy ourselves. However, natural things bring temporary satisfaction. A lot of us try to make things happen on our own and it backfires. We end up hurt, worn out, frustrated, anxious, fearful, feeling lonely, and making terrible decisions to satisfy only what God can. Read the whole chapter of Isaiah 55.
Psalm 107:9 King James Version says: For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
You can come to God if you are thirsty and in need. Webster’s definition thirst: Dry. A desire or need to crave intense with urgency. To long, yearn.
Isaiah 55:1-3: Amplified Version : “Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters;
And you who have no money come, buy grain and eat .Come, buy wine and milk Without money and without cost [simply accept it as a gift from God].2 “Why do you spend money for that which is not bread, And your earnings for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight in abundance.3 “Incline your ear [to listen] and come to Me; Hear, so that your soul may live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, According to the faithful mercies [promised and] shown to David.
The creator knows what we need because he created us. All we have to do is go to the manufacturer He can fix any situation that is concerning us.
Isaiah 55: 8-11 Amplified Version “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts higher than your thoughts.10 “For as the rain and snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth, Making it bear and sprout, And providing seed to the Sower and bread to the eater,11 So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me void (useless, without result),Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
Just this week alone God took care of my need. He is my provider. We don’t need anything to come to God because He is all we need.
Don’t even try. Only God can satisfy!
Prayer: Lord thank you for being everything I need. Thank you for creating me. I repent for not coming to you and doing things on my own. Only you can satisfy my longing soul. God I come ready to hear what you have to say because you are the all knowing. You only want what is best for me even when I don’t understand. You know the plan you have for me. Plans to prosper me not to harm me, to give me hope and a future. I come ready to receive. In Jesus name. Amen

This blog is further confirmation for me as God gave me a mandate and a message at the top of the year concerning things that gratify the flesh and things that satisfy the spirit and soul and fulfills it.
God is so incredible and I trust Him and His filling.! Thank you so much for sharing this great word of encouragement and confirmation!
Glory to God. Learning everyday that God is my everything. I can come to Him as I am and He gives me what I need and more.
