Deuteronomy 26:11 Thou shalt rejoice in every good thing which the Lord thy God hath given unto thee.

Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Philippians 4:11-12 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need.

Are you satisfied? Whoa, that’s a tough question isn’t it? Put some real thought into it before you answer. The world will tell us that we can’t ever reach the point of satisfaction. We want more. We want better, newer stuff. We want, want, want. But if we really put some thought into it, most of us will realize that we really don’t need anything. Most of us have the good fortune of having a roof over our heads, a vehicle to get us where we’re going, food in the pantry and refrigerator, and much more than we need. We have what we need, but the world tells us we need more. We are in a constant pursuit for satisfaction, but we already have the key to satisfaction, but we just don’t see it.

The secret to satisfaction is found in Christ. Paul the apostle endured some really hard times including imprisonment, yet he knew the secret to satisfaction. He told us that he learned to be content in every situation. He knew how to be brought low, and he knew how to abound. He knew that no matter what situation was ongoing, he had satisfaction in Christ.

How then do we reach satisfaction in Christ? That’s the easy part. All we have to do is give our hearts to Christ. If we give our hearts to Christ, and we allow Him to fill our hearts, we will feel a satisfaction like nothing else. And the closer we grow in our relationship with Christ, the more satisfied we become. When we study God’s word, spend time in prayer having heart to heart talks with the one who loves us most, we gradually recognize that we are totally and completely satisfied in Christ. We have everything we need, and Christ is really all we want! We can be satisfied in Christ!
