“Oh that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, And fills the hungry soul with goodness” (Psalm 107: 8-9 NKJV).
When my father really enjoyed a meal, he would say, “I’m suffering with satisfaction.”
At one time or another most of us have tried to satisfy our longings with a variety of “things”: houses, cars, clothes, food, jobs, gadgets, even relationships. And they may bring us a measure of temporary pleasure.
Satisfaction Comes from God
But God promises to satisfy the deep, down-in-your-soul kind of longings, and there’s nothing temporary about His gift to us. He is the only One who can fill us with that kind of permanent satisfaction. He is the only One who can truly bring contentment.
When that happens, we indeed can cry out with thanks to the Lord: “I am suffering with satisfaction!” Satisfaction Guaranteed.
My Personal Prayer for You
Lord, where can we go but to You? Fill our deepest longings with Your sweet, sweet presence. May we never look elsewhere for the filling of our souls. You satisfy us so completely! Your satisfaction is truly guaranteed.
How has God satisfied you?
