SATISFIED

Print   By: Chris Allen

Satisfied: to have enough; to be full… sufficient.

 God purposely put in us an empty space. This space is called an innate spirit that God and God alone can completely fill. God did this because, although He has given us free will of choice, His desire is for us to choose Him to fill that space.  But due to sin, selfishness, self-centeredness, pride, and the deception of Satan, we try to fill that space with everything but God which leads us to live empty and defeated lives chasing only what God can give us. We fall into the sin of idolatry, putting people, places and things in the place of God.  

Why do we “work so hard for things that are not enough, that can never fill you up, and are endlessly insufficient?” (Beth Moore)

Isaiah 55:2 (Amplified Bible): Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness [the profuseness of spiritual joy].

“God is the most consistent, constant, unshakable, unchanging, immovable person in our lives; everything else is subject to change, to move, and to shift.” (Chris Allen)
