Cravings

TODAY’S VERSE
For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.
I John 2:16 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Cravings. It has been my experience that most cravings have their roots in emotional and spiritual issues. Of course by the time addictions are created there is a heavy part of the brain involved. But in their genesis, craving stem from some childhood edict that we are flawed. This arouses certain fears that if we do, feel, or think certain things, we’ll be neglected and abandoned—which to a child is to be left to die. This is a primal fear. It stays with us because these fear based lies are timeless and the brain will do anything to protect us from it. None of this is conscious, but the bottom line is that we “crave” certain things in order to stay alive. So, if we escape enough, have enough or achieve enough we believe we will be safe. That’s the world’s lie. The truth is, there is never enough! Only truth from God can really set you free. Jesus is the truth and His love will fill the emptiness, fear, frustration, anger, sadness and disgust that have been living in your heart. Today, trade in the need for excitement and their false promises for the satisfaction that comes from the truth of God’s love for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I have bought the lie. From a child I have believed that having the most, the best or being famous and admired would satisfy all my emotional needs. But it was a lie. Only You can satisfy. Help me know You more and find my true happiness in You.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
