Who Can Satisfy?

See the source imageWhat does it mean to be truly satisfied in Christ?

I’ve been thinking about that today.

Mom and I were talking about how we as human beings are never satisfied in life.  We took the weather for instance. When it’s freezing cold outside, we long for the summertime. And when it’s scorching hot outside we long for winter. There’s no satisfying us.

We always want something bigger and better. Then we get that bigger and better thing and we desire something even greater. It’s a never-ending cycle! When will it ever end? Will it ever end?

I believe it ends when we finally become satisfied in Christ and Christ alone. When we rest in Him we find true satisfaction.

So what does it mean to be truly satisfied in Christ? Well, we will have a sense of peace that surpasses all understanding. We glorify God when we are truly satisfied in Him.

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)

In your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:11)

Jesus promises us that if we learn to find our satisfaction in Him, He will take care of us.

One of my favorite songs ever is Who Can Satisfy? I urge you to go listen to this song. I can listen to this song on repeat over and over. It’s a beautiful song!

Who Can Satisfy?

Who can satisfy my soul, like You
Who on earth can comfort me and love me like You do
Who could ever be more faithful and true
I will trust in You, I will trust in You, my God.

CHORUS:
There is a Fountain, who is the King
Victorious Warrior, and Lord of everything
My Rock, my Shelter, my very all
Blessed Redeemer, who reigns upon the throne.

VERSE 2:
Living water, rain down Your life on me
Cleansing me, refreshing me with life abundantly
River, full of life, I’ll go where You lead
I will trust in You, I will trust in You, my God.
