Only God Can Satisfy


Setting Right Priorities

One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple. – Psalm 27:4.

O the precious moments we waste in life in pursuit of carnal desires which cannot satisfy the deep desires of our soul! Moments which could have been devoted to seeking His face and beholding the beauty of the LORD. These precious moments would have been far more rewarding walking and talking with the Lord. In the passage above, we see King David sought to dwell in the house of the LORD throughout his life meditating on the beauty of the Lord.

When we draw near to God, He will draw near to us. James 4:8.

The Lord Himself promises, “you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13.

Only God can satisfy the deepest longings of the soul.

For He satisfies the longing soul, And fills the hungry soul with goodness. Psalm 107:9.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.  Matthew 5:6.

So, why waste time in unsatisfactory carnal pursuits when we can be fully satisfied by God. Does this mean that we give up all earthly pursuits? No. We are to get our priorities right. Desiring God and seeking His presence should be our first priority. The rest will fall in place thereafter.

Jesus tells us to get our priorities right.

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33.

The Psalmist offers this wise advice.

Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:4, 5.

  2. Mindfully living in the presence of God is the right balance. He is always present but sometimes, I’m distracted. He faithfully waits for me to come back from my wanderings and focus myself once more, upon Him. I look forward to the day when I no longer wander…
