Jordan For Jesus #023 "God Is More Than Enough (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-08-28 11:14:20
Nothing can truly satisfy the human heart but the one who created it. People are searching for something to fill the empty void in their heart.
They try to fill that empty void with many things of the world that may satisfy them for a time but their satisfaction runs out because everything in the world does not last or truly satisfy.
What the world promises will satisfy looks satisfactory but the truth is that it is only temporary and will leave a person empty, discontent, unsatisfied and insecure. This is why it is important to know the truth of God, so that you are not deceived or fooled.
What people do not realize is that only Jesus can fill that empty void inside of their heart. God created the human heart for Himself. It was not created, destined or designed for the world and what the world contains. We are in the world, but we are not of it.
It is impossible to be of the world when Jesus clearly stated in John 17:16 that we, who are His followers, are not of the world. God is more than enough. People can search the entire world, for all eternity, but they will come up short because there is nothing and no one like God.
Nothing compares to Jesus. He is sufficient for every need. Only He is eternal, and only He will be standing in the end. It is important to think with an eternal mindset. If not, you're only fooling yourself. What you place your satisfaction and contentment in now won't last and you can't take it with you where you are going.
People who place their satisfaction and contentment in the world and people are insecure. Therefore, they always want more and more but it is never enough. This happens because they constantly fill the emptiness in their heart with what they think will satisfy them rather than God who alone is satisfaction.
Because they continue to fill themselves with things that temporarily satisfy their heart, rather than God who alone is satisfaction, the emptiness inside of their heart only grows more empty until it begins to cry out for more of God.
It is only then people begin to realize they need a change and that change can only be found in God alone. Those who place their satisfaction and contentment in the Lord find He is their security because He is more than enough. God knew that people needed something to fill the empty void inside of their heart.
That is why God sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to save the hearts of humanity by willingly laying down His life all because of who He is, love. If you have God who is more than everything and more than enough, what more could you want? Yes, people are searching for something to fill the emptiness inside of their heart, so they can truly live, but what they do not realize is that, in their searching, what they are really looking for is God.
People will not be truly satisfied until they have God and only what God can give them. It is because God created the human heart. It is a process of trial and error. People search and try many things only to discover at the end of their searching all they really needed was God all along.
Everyone goes through this in life and it is a part of life that people end up in a quest to obtain God because everything begins in God, and ends in God.
