LORD bestow Your testimonies in and on me, Amen.

The Bible is full of glorious promises of satisfaction for the discontent:

  • Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)
  • For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things. (Psalm 107:9)
  • The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the Lord! May your hearts live forever! (Psalm 22:26)
  • In your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:11)

Herman Bavink once wrote, “God, and God alone, is Man’s highest good.” God is The Source and Sustainer of all good. He and He alone, as Bavinck notes, is “The abundant Fountain of all good.”

Nothing in this universe is able to produce true goodness, unless the Good Creator is its wellspring. This truth puts all of life in perspective for Mankind. To state it plainly, if goodness is what we desire, we must go to The Source of all goodness: God.

Seeking satisfaction in Christ alone serves two purposes:

We reap the benefits of knowing, loving, and delighting in Jesus. The Father gives us peace that surpasses understanding and provides for all our needs according to his riches. No good thing is withheld from us and all things work together for our good. Living in light of these truths proclaims to a discontent world that Jesus is better than anything the world has to offer. As we look to Jesus to make us truly happy, we also proclaim to a world in need that only Christ can truly satisfy.

It is for our good and for The glory of God. “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.” As we drink daily from the cup of Jesus, it becomes evident to those we interact with that Jesus is enough and our hearts will “flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38).

“When we are most satisfied in Him, He Loves that,” S.O. said with a smile. “We are glorifying God when our satisfaction is Jesus alone. We never heard [this] concept before, because we have to study our Bible to glorify God [or] we have to pray to make Him happy. No. When we are satisfied in Him all those things will happen and our Creator is happy with us. God is most glorified when we are [happy in Him], which is crazy.”
