Joyce Meyer's daily devotional June 6, 2016 - True Satisfaction
Topic: True Satisfaction [June 6, 2016]
But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God. - Matthew 4:4 AMPC
I don’t think there is anything better than just to be satisfied. To wake up in the morning and think, Life is good; praise God, I’m satisfied, and to go to bed at night still satisfied is truly living abundantly. On the other hand, I don’t think there is anything much worse than living in a low-level state of dissatisfaction all the time.
Here is a spiritual reality check: No matter what you own, where you go, or what you do, nothing can give you true gratification besides the close, personal, intimate presence of God. Money, trips, vacations, clothes, new opportunities, new furniture and new houses, and getting married and having children are all things that can give us a degree of happiness. But we will never be permanently, consistently satisfied if we seek things to own or do in order to quench the empty void inside us.
There are many unhappy believers who live unfulfilled lives because they are seeking the wrong thing! Don’t miss out on a close, intimate relationship with God because you’re seeking the gift instead of the Giver.
The things of the world cannot truly satisfy. Always look to God first and He will satisfy the desires of your heart.
