1. JESUS ____________WHAT’S GOING ON AT THE __________-LEVEL OF YOUR LIFE.

2. JESUS KNOWS WHAT YOU REALLY _______________.

Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength?  Why pay for food that does you no good?  Listen, and I will tell you where to get food that is good for your soul!  Come to Me with your ears wide open. Listen, for the life of your soul is at stake. I am ready to give you all the mercies and unfailing love that I promised to David…Seek the Lord while you can find Him. Call on Him now while He is near.”  (Is. 55:2-3,6)

3. JESUS HAS ALREADY _______________ ALL THAT _______________ TO BE DONE TO MEET YOUR NEED.

The “work of God” is not what _________ do;

it’s what Jesus has already done on the cross.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8,9)

He saved us, not because of the good things that we did, but because of His mercy.  He washed away our sins and gave us a new life through the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:5)

  • Source?
  • Availability?
  • Shelf life?

Yes, He humbled you by letting you go hungry and then feeding you with manna, a food previously unknown to you and your ancestors.  He did it to teach you that people need more than bread for their life; real life comes by feeding on every word of the Lord. (Deuteronomy 8:3)

4. YOUR ____________ WILL NEVER BE SATISFIED UNTIL YOU _________________ IN JESUS.
