How to Truly Fill Up Your Heart

Friday, February 23, 2018

One of the most practical things you can do with the desire eating feeling is to walk away from it and into a private room to talk to God. (Of course, you can talk to Him in your car or in a room filled with people—the location does not stop communication.) I have taught many people just to open up the Word and start reading wherever their eyes fall. God can coordinate personal communication with us. I remember the story of one person who took my advice, and she just cried out to God and asked if He even cared. She opened her Bible, and her eyes fell to this passage from Psalm 81:4-10:

“…this is a decree for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob. He established it as a statute for Joseph when he went out against Egypt… He says, “I removed the burden from their shoulders; their hands were set free from the basket. In your distress you called and I rescued you, I answered you out of a thundercloud; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Hear, O my people, and I will warn you—if you would but listen to me, O Israel! You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not bow down to an alien god. I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.”
