It’s not an April Fools (April 1st) day joke, but instead knowledge that Jesus wants us to both BE SATISFIED and BE HUNGRY. Both.
Not knowledge just from experience but from His existence. Yes, foolishness by believing in Him, in His Holy Way, was never a joke. Foolishness in us, sometimes said by others, is for us to NOT being interested in appearance but in ADHERENCE…. Really, how smart it is in letting those worries go. The having of internal knowledge of God is not from our achievement in learning but from our allowing of filling, in letting the Spirit lead and interpret our HOPE. Be satisfied.
Be Satisfied and fueled up with Holy Spirit.
Does the Spirit make us hungry? Yes.
I had a partial dream this morning and a conversation of faith came up in the corner of the scen. It was a conversation with someone, but I don’t know with whom, perhaps just and wonderfully it was with the Holy Spirit Himself who told me: “Be satisfied”. He and I leaned into knowing that God is in control and we have life parts to fulfill. It was not BE SATISFIED then stop moving, but just keep knowing to work IN UNDERSTANDING, in believing and to be SATISFIED with His instructions, purpose, plan. BE.
How many times we learn by the hard way to internalize our motives, moments, and more. To hide our hearts, first from the desire to not appear foolish then hide our hearts because we would be taunted by our peers or ourselves for not serving ourselves more. How much more in these times do we find the ONLY ONE who understands us is the ONE who created us. If we deny ourselves and open to His Will, we Will find the Way.
How can we survive, yet be cross-foolish? Because our survival is not dependent upon us. Let us hunger for more of Him, His Ways, His understanding of what’s important and BE SATISFIED.
We do need to open our eyes to our REAL needs, versus what we thought we needed. We also retrospectively should know we are forgiven for our previous forever worldly following, we are forgiven. And the foolishness of forgiveness is believing God tells us: BE SMART today, for the new day.
This can be a deep philosophical introspection, or we can take this pondering in a light hearted look at our lives. We best live in the present moment. God who does not change, and the answer will ALWAYS be: Be still and know that I am God. Be still and let Me do what REALLY needs to be done. Be still. BE. BE YOU, MY CHILD.
1st Corinthians 18-21
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
