He Promises To Satisfy.

There is an old song that says,“I cant get no satisfaction, though I try and I try, I can’t get no satisfaction!” And that is true. Though the Scripture says there is pleasure in  sin for a season, the season does end and like a dog returning to his vomit, we go back again and again seeking satisfaction but cannot get it, that sustains and satisfies us,…”Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And delight yourself in abundance.”-{Isaiah 55:2}.

“But God….” has provided that which satisfies!

Jesus speaks to the woman at the well and promises He can satisfy the need of her heart. “…but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.  “-{John 4:14}

 For I satisfy the weary ones and refresh everyone who languishes.”-{Jer 31:25};

For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.“-{Psalm 107:9};

” The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. “-{Isa 58:11};

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.“-{Matt 5:6}.

“And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” -{2 Cor 12:9}. The word “sufficient” means “enough,” with the implication SATISFIES!” He Himself, His grace, empowerment, SATISFIES! Satisfaction is tied up not in the accumulation in things, OR the absence of difficulties or pain, but in a Person, the LORD JESUS CHRIST! And this, the LORD said to Paul after refusing to take away the “Thorn,” the word spoke not of some little “sliver” under the skin of  your finger, as an irritation, but was used of a wooden stake to impale, torture, someone. This was serious pain. And the LORD said instead of removing it would impart His Promise of empowering grace and that His power would be manifested, unleashed through Paul’s weakness. Paul’s response? Was to glory, knowing when he was weak he was strong!

God has a promise to enable you to spiritually flourish in the hard place.

Sometimes He delivers us FROM the trial, other times He gives us Grace to Sustain us IN the trial. Either ways, it takes His Wisdom, power to deliver from or sustain us IN and that we will experience sufficient grace with the implication He will satisfy us!!!

What amazing Grace of God. What a promise for those in pain.

He Himself the sufficient One Promises sufficient, enough grace to endure and that satisfies us!

“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek You; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you,in a dry and parched land  where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary  and beheld your power and your glory. Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.”-{Psalm 63:1, 4-5};Satisfy us in the morning with Your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.“-{Ps 90:14};

Those who hate the Lord would pretend obedience to Him, And their time of punishment would be forever. But I would feed you with the finest of the wheat, And with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.-{Psalm 81:15-16};”You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing. “-{Psalm 145:16}; “Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men! For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good. “-{Psalm 107:8-9}

We end up dissatisfied because we are looking for love in all the wrong places. Look to Him. Ask Him to satisfy you. And even in the hard place His grace, kindness, favor, empowering will satisfy you as you  submit and accept His will for you.

He alone can cause us to be content, satisfied! He Himself is the Only One who can cause contentment and satisfy you!
