GROWING IN CHRIST

"Satisfaction at Last"

Date published: 08/27/2011
Psalm 107:8-9 “Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men, for He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.” (NIV)
 
There has never been a time in the history of mankind where people thirst and hunger for meaning and satisfaction to the level they do today.  We use artificial stimulants for joy, pursue every new electronic device, desire to upscale where we live, and have wheels that just don’t take us places but try to improve our image.  The wealth of a poor person in America dwarfs
the poor outside of America, while the wealth of the rich is beyond our
imagination.  Amazingly the dissatisfaction of both is not much different. 
It is easy to be sucked into the world’s system for satisfaction instead
of allowing Christ to satisfy your needs.  It is only through your realization that your ability to find fulfillment for your hunger and thirst for satisfaction can only be found in the depth of your relationship with Jesus.  Mentally you know this, but how often do you choose to pursue satisfaction through the way of the world?  How much time do you devote to your pursuit of worldly things instead of devoting a similar amount of time to discovering the depth of Jesus’ love for you?  Instead of becoming a pawn of the world, place yourself more into the hands of the potter – your Father in heaven.  Isaiah
64:8 says, “Yet, O Lord, You are our Father.  We are the clay, You are the potter; we are all the work of Your hand.”
  You can only make this statement when you have a faith that believes that your God is big enough to take care of your life.  Jeremiah 32:27 says, "I am the Lord, the God of all mankind.  Is anything too hard for Me?”  Jesus is capable of satisfying your thirst and hunger.  Come to Jesus not only for refreshment and satisfaction, but also to experience God’s incredible purpose which is so foreign to this world!

2 Corinthians 4:7-9 “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.  We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”  (NIV)
