Are you satisfied?

Have you ever noticed how sin does not satisfy you? Your sin has a pleasure for a season, but when that season is over you need something else. Something more. Your sin doesn’t bring you any lasting pleasure. It gives no satisfaction. God wants us to be satisfied.

Psalms 103:5 says, "Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:" Look at verse 5 and the benefit listed, "Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s." God’s blessing or benefit is satisfaction.

Let us consider a different perspective. 1 Timothy 6:8 says, "And having food and raiment let us be therewith content." It is a command to be content. We know that God does not command us to do things that He cannot empower us to do.

God wants us to be content with what we have. He’s willing to empower us to be content. Do you find yourself running after a next high or wanting excitement all the time? Do you find yourself needing a break from it all? Whatever your situation, if you are not content with it, you must go to God. Ask Him to give you contentment. You can never satisfy yourself with sin or any other entity that exists. Only God can give you contentment and satisfaction. Won’t you go to Him?

"Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness." – Isaiah 55:2
