John 6:35 “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”

Somehow, in spite of this verse, we feel hungry. Maybe we are looking for the wrong kind of bread… Maybe we are looking to Jesus for Him to fill us with our wants in this world, when He wants us to just come to Him, period! Do we pray for Jesus to fulfil for us our own agendas, or are we looking to Him just because of who He is? Do we ask Him to give us the situation or circumstance we would prefer, or do we just come to Him because of who He is?

We have to come to Him, and believe on Him. He sets the terms, not us! But if we do come to Him, believing, trusting, with no reservations or doubts, He will satisfy!!

He is not just a way to get the bread, He IS the Bread! We cannot just come to Him with part of us, but all of us. We cannot just believe part of His words, but all of them. We must follow after Him by faith, depending on nothing else. If we do, He will provide, and we will be filled.

“Heavenly Father, help us to come to Jesus, and believe in Jesus, with all that we are. And we will be filled. Amen.”
