Finding Satisfaction

“God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.” -John Piper

What are you satisfied in?  Perhaps it’s a homecooked meal after a long day of work, or the warmth of a child or spouse that greets you after you’ve been away on a trip, or maybe it’s a retirement account after you begin to see a return on your investment.  These are probably all things that we hope to enjoy if we aren’t enjoying already, and yet none of them would matter if we were dying of dehydration.  If we were this thirsty, we would do whatever we could to find water to quench our thirst.  King David said, “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God (Psalm 41:1).  Though David knew the temporary pleasures of wealth, power and fame—none of which were inherently bad to enjoy—they were the poorest of substitutes for the rich supremacy of a God that is eternally good.  May we too make it our chief desire to bring God glory by finding our true satisfaction in Christ. 

Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days (Psalm 90:14, ESV).
