A Word every day to get you on your way!
Here is the Daily Dose for Friday, April 30, 2021.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. Psalm 107:8-9
In 1965, the Rolling Stones released one of their most popular songs, Satisfactions. If you’ve heard it once, you’ll know the words forever. It starts off, “I can’t get no satisfaction, I can’t get no satisfaction, ‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try, I can’t get no, I can’t get no!” As you listen to the song, you can feel what Mick Jagger is singing about. He’s looking for satisfaction in life and just can’t find any. He is trying everything that he can think of but still, he can’t get no satisfaction.
That actually is the story of many of us. We are looking for satisfaction in life and can’t quite find it. We often think that something will give us satisfaction right up until we get it. We think that money will do it until we get money and look for something else. We think power will do it until we get power and it doesn’t quite work. We keep looking and like Jagger, We try and we try and we try, but we can’t get no satisfaction.
Friends the joy of the Lord is that in Him we can finally find satisfaction. When we get into a deep relationship with the Lord, we begin to see that there is satisfaction there. With him, we can find unfailing love, holy ghost power, and a release from the pressures of the world. When we fully connect with the Lord we begin to see not only what we are looking for, but we also get a glance of all that we already have and that God has already done. It is in him, that we can truly find rest from our searches, love that fills our heart, and finally find satisfaction. So take some time today to be thankful that with the Lord you can finally get satisfaction.
