“You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.” Psalm 145:16 (NIV)
Take a moment and read today’s key verse out loud. You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. Let that truth soak in your heart. God, the Creator of all things, opens His hand to us. Listen to the generosity there in the One who holds all things. This One is the one opening His hand to you today.
What is in He offering?
Exactly what satisfies our desires.
When we are filled, by Jesus, our hearts are sated, not on the edge of giving in to temptation to give up the best of later for the quick fix of now. The tantalizing pull of the unwise decision weakens when we’re not grasping for what we think will gratify us.
When my heart is filled with His love, I have the ability to slow down when it comes to decisions that come my way.
Desperation doesn’t determine my steps.
Oh how I want that! I am going after being a wise woman not prone to making decisions based on how I feel, but determined by what is loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self-controlled. I want to be beautiful like that and the only way I can become that type of woman is to be filled by Jesus so His Holy Spirit pours out of me.
