July 3 – Spiritual Fullness
Our Lord, we love Thee and desire to live for Thee in all things.
My children, “Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.” That is satisfaction.
Only in the fullness of spiritual things can the heartsick and faint and weary be satisfied, healed, and rested. “Lord,” we cry, “to whom shall we go but to Thee.” “Thou preparest the table before us.” Bread of Life, Food from Heaven.
How few realize that the feeding of the four thousand and the five thousand was in each case but an illustration of the way in which I should one day be the Food of My people.
Think of the wonder of revelation still to be seen by those who live with Me. All these hundreds of years, and much of what I said and did is still mystery, much of My Life on earth is still spiritually unexplored country. Only to the simple and loving heart that walks with me can these things be revealed. I have carefully hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them unto babes.
Do not weigh your spirits down with the sins and sorrows of the world. Only a Christ can do that and live. Look for the loving, the true, the kindly, the brave in the many all around you.
As the heart panteth after the water brooks,
so panteth my soul after thee, O God. Psalm 42:1
