I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.
This goes right along with gratitude. And I wonder, do my actions reflect that I’m satisfied? I’m going to be honest here…….. not usually. There is always the next big thing. Particularly in the area of technology. I am a tech freak and I love the newest and fastest. Now I don’t always get it but I never cease to long after it. And then there is being satisfied with myself. The person that God has made me. I know for every person you could talk to, one would want to gain weight and the other would want to loose it. One would want to have straight hair and another would want to have curly. And then there is some that would want to just “have some”. One would hate their freckles and another would think they are the cutest. And this act of being unsatisfied with ourselves could go forever along with the list of possessions that we would long to have.
The Lord wants us to be satisfied with Him. To not be seeking things of this world but to be seeking Him alone. And believe me when I say, “I’m talking to myself here!”. He will never let us down. Be satisfied with who I am and what I have before He will give me more of what He wants me to be or have.
So today I’m satisfied. That doesn’t mean I’m settling. I’m choosing to be “satisfied”. Satisfied with who I am, what I look like and what I have materially. I know You will give me what I need and when I need it. And for that I can be assured! It’s not about what I want for me, it’s what You want for me. For me Lord, being satisfied is a lesson sometimes hard to learn. Please be with me, my family and my friends. Help us to have that satisfaction of the heart needed to live in peace with You. Amen!
