SATISFIED

Psa. 103:2-5 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

All of us spend our days ultimately looking for satisfaction. For some it’s the weekend and its promise of rest and recreation, for others it’s in the satisfaction of attaining career goals, and for some it is the chase and excitement of attracting another partner. All of us spend our days in search of that elusive satisfaction. The problem is that the weekend never measures up to its expectation, reaching the next pinnacle in your career leaves you with a lust for the next accomplishment, and the new partner will never be exactly what you were looking for. The hunt goes on. David sang about a place of total bless, the attainment of ultimate satisfaction. Where is that place? It is the place of redemption, the place of forgiveness of sins. Here is how Charles Spurgeon describes David’s powerful song.

“Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things, or rather “filling with good thy soul.” No man is ever filled to satisfaction but a believer, and only God himself can satisfy even him. Many a worldling is satiated, but not one is satisfied. God satisfies the very soul of man, his noblest part, his ornament and glory; and of consequence he satisfies his mouth, however hungry and craving it might otherwise be. Soul-satisfaction loudly calls for soul- praise, and when the mouth is filled with good it is bound to speak good of him who filled it. Our good Lord bestows really good things, not vain toys and idle pleasures; and these he is always giving, so that from moment to moment he is satisfying our soul with good: shall we not be still praising him? If we never cease to bless him till he ceases to bless us, our employment will be eternal.”

Christ fills our soul with total satisfaction. He is what we were created to enjoy. Nothing less can ever fill our hungry hearts. A drunk can never reach the right place with his intoxicating drinks. A promiscuous person can never find the satisfying partner. The business man can never make enough money. Like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it is always just out of reach.
So I have to agree with David, bless The Lord oh my soul, and let all that is within me bless His holy name. He forgives all my sins, He heals all my diseases, He redeems my life from the pit of despair. He satisfies my life with good, He satisfies my life with no less than Himself. So today let’s all check ourselves. What is the source of our pursuit? As we set our affection on heaven, our hearts shall be filled with good, we will be finally satisfied.

    How strange it is to be constantly wanting more when you have much this world offers. The world looked at me and I had plenty. You might even say I was blessed. Yet I always wanted the next new thing.
    Then I had an encounter with Jesus. My focus and desires were turned upside down. Now the world looks at me and probably shakes it’s head and mumbles poor guy has bad luck. Yet I say, “I have a treasure that made me drop everything I had that I might grab a hold of it!”

    God can visit you anywhere! While gazing at a bunch of puffy clouds in the sky,perhaps drinking coffee at anyone of the various coffee shops,maybe after looking through the concordance in the back of a King James Bible,or just by breathing plain oxygen! John 4:9-14.
