This message probably may not be of much essence and relevance to certain individuals, but to those who have one way or the other had some experiences and desires Christ as a matter of life and death will appreciate it’s content.
I discovered in my Christian pursuit that there is a kind of satisfaction, love, joy and peace that cannot be derived from anything or anyone on earth including the most caring and loving people on earth. If you don’t know that which brings this kind of satisfaction and peace, you will jump from one person to another searching for the satisfaction and peace but you will not find it.
The emptiness and vacuum created in your heart will compel you to search diligently for anything and anybody that will satisfy and fill that thirst and emptiness in you. You will find things to do and people who will temporarily seem to fill that emptiness and may decide to enter into a relationship or even seek for what you call “best friend“ because you will need somebody to stay close. It isn’t that those individuals are not caring or loving, they may be outstanding in their care and love for you, but that kind of thirst and emptiness demands so much that nothing on earth will satisfy. Nothing I mean, absolutely nothing. It’s of the similitude of eating food when actually you are thirsty for water. The fact that the food entered the mouth does not mean that thirst will be satisfied. Temporarily you will feel satisfied, but eventually the thirst might even intensify.
These individuals are not bad but they are just not the perfect ones to fill that depth of thirst and emptiness. You will have peace and satisfaction intermittently and you will so many times be hurt and sometimes very moody, sorrowful because despite their love and care for you they will not all the times be with you and may disappoint you.
You will feel bad, low self-esteem, depressed and frustrated because you will think they will give you permanent joy and satisfaction but all you find is pain and hurt intermittently. Then you will come to the conclusion after your experiences that nothing and no one seem to give you that kind of permanent peace, joy and satisfaction you need.
This among many other reasons and factors is why some ladies and guys engage in premarital sex and all sought of diabolic and illicit vices like smoking and drinking. They exploit those areas with the anticipation that the longing and desire will be meet permanently. My fellow youth, this kind of emptiness cannot be satisfied by money, sex, phonography, having a great and beautiful wife or handsome husband, having a beautiful home and children. Most people especially the youth of this generations are full of worry and anxiety due to this unmeet desire. Others are more severe to an extent that they literally do things to lose their self-worth. Most ladies’ emotional and psychological configuration has been scattered and tempered with, because of their efforts to satisfy this desire and emptiness in them through many frustrating ways. Ladies and gentlemen this is a desire of all ages. Nothing will satisfy, nothing in this world. This kind of emptiness is the major reason for the over 4300 religions we have in this world. The hearts of men are entirely still searching for that which will fill that vacuum, emptiness and thirst.
I show you a mystery precious one, I have not just a good news, but the greatest news for you since time immemorial. This might have been the desperate cry of your heart. You might have tried all you can within your power but to no avail. Most people including some Christians have this as their story, deepest secret and cry.
No one knows and understands their pain because it can’t be explained, and yet it’s eating them up. Their heart is literally bleeding, it’s their desperate cry. Tears may not flow from their eyes but, there is a desperate and agonising cry stemming from the deepest bowels of their spirit and heart searching for joy, love, care, peace and satisfaction in life. John said “I wept because there was no one worthy…..” Revelation 5:4
And one of the elders said unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah the Root of David, has prevailed….” Revelations 5:5
Can I shock you? Do you know even God has a desire? The bible says, it is the desire of God that no one perish, but everyone will be saved. Jesus Christ was the only one who meet that desire.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus Christ), that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
Your joy, peace and satisfaction must be tied to a person; His name is Jesus Christ not men, circumstances or things. Am telling you beloved you may die from heart attack and worry if you tie your joy and peace to man, things and circumstances.
In John 4:7-30 there was a Samaritan woman who had been with five men. Her heart was searching for something that she thought was in men. There is something in the inward part of man which will always crave for complete and permanent peace, love, care, joy and satisfaction. This woman’s thirst couldn’t be satisfied by men, but an encounter with Jesus Christ at the well changed her life. Hallelujah!! What has been your desire and emptiness?
What have you been searching for from man? What have you been battling with? Aren’t you tired of the pains, hurts embarrassment and frustrations? I show you a mystery precious one.
The only person who can give you complete and permanent satisfaction, joy and peace always at all times is the person Jesus Christ.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Mat 11:28
Jesus answered and said unto her, If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that said to you, Give me to drink; you would have asked of him, and he would have given you living water. John 4:10
And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst. John 6:35
Jesus Christ has always been the desire of all ages. Only those who find him truly have peace. Come out of all the frustration and acute hurts that comes with depending on man for love, peace, joy, care and satisfaction. I show you a more excellent way precious one.
Why not make a decision today precious one to accept Jesus Christ into your life.
Say this prayerfully and sincerely from your heart knowing that the desire of all ages will come into your heart and change your life.
Say this “Lord Jesus, I thank you for being there for me. I appreciate your death on the cross for my joy, peace and satisfaction. I sincerely admit am a sinner and can’t save myself. Forgive me Jesus and wash me from all the hurts and pains of my past. Sorry for not seeking your face through all my desperation. I truly need you Jesus. No one else will do. Accept me as your child and make me new. Thank you Jesus for saving me. Amen!
