Psalm 107 verse 9 describes the human condition:
9 For He satisfies the longing soul,
And fills the hungry soul with goodness.
Man has a longing and hungry soul.
Our soul longs for connection and companionship. Connection and companionship with each other and I think ultimately with God. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says of mankind.
11…..He (God) has put eternity in their hearts…..
We long for an eternal, an ongoing, uninterrupted experience of companionship. We came from God, to be in consistent relationship with Him and our hearts long for that again.
Our soul is hungry, hungry for many things, love, security, peace, forgiveness, direction, meaning and purpose. That’s why Jesus called Himself the bread of life, because in Him God feeds the many hungers of our soul.
In God is the answer to mans’ longing, hungry soul.
