Where Do I Find My Sustenance?

John 4:34-38 (NIV)
 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of Him who sent me
and to finish His work.

Jesus said, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work.” This really touched my spirit, because food is sustenance, so Jesus is saying doing the will of God gives Him sustenance. It’s what He lives on/for.  Seeing this my mind asks, “what gives me sustenance?”

How does one answer this? Looking from a ‘who I am’ perspective, what makes me ‘me’? Outside I’m wife, mother, Oma, volunteer, prayer warrior. (That’s what people know about me.) Deep down in my soul I hunger after my Triune God. This is the rock solid foundation of my life. I yearn for an ever closer, more intimate relationship with Him. To build this I too am required to find my sustenance in obedience to my Father.
Matthew 5:6 (MSG)
“You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God.
He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat

As I read the next verses of Scripture in John 4, I pictured a field ripe with wheat ready for the harvest. Jesus tells the apostles:

 John 4:36 Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life,
so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.

Jesus is speaking of souls. We are to be sowing the seed of the Gospel and sometimes we get to reap the reward of bringing salvation to someone. I know God’s heart is that all men should spend eternity with Him enjoying all the wonderful plans He has for us. My obedience means I watch for those that God calls me to speak with and I obey by telling them about Jesus and God’s love for them; it means I support those traveling to spread the Word  with my finances and with prayer. It is God’s heart.

Where do you find sustenance? What awakens joy in your heart?

Do you know Jesus? If He is missing in your life, now is the time to discover the wonder of a relationship with Him. Just admit you're a sinner; confess sorrow for your sin, and ask Jesus to come into your heart, cleanse you, and be Lord of your life forevermore. If you do know Him, don't let fear stop you from sharing Him with family and friends.
