“Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to a city to dwell in; hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He led them by a straight way till they reached a city to dwell in. Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.” (Psalm 107:4-9 ESV)
Sometimes in life we feel like we are wandering in a desert waste. Things aren’t working out the way we had hoped. Relationships break down. Health fails us. We lose our job. Our finances are depleted. Sometimes it is one of these circumstances, sometimes many of them together that weigh us down and cause our soul to faint within us.
It is in these times we learn that the things of this world never satisfy the deep hunger and longings of our souls.
We fall to our knees and cry out to God. He delivers those who trust in Him from their distress.
Cry out to God today and put your trust in Him. He satisfies the longing soul, and the soul hungry for Him He fills with good things.
