EXPERIENCING GOD'S SATISFACTION.
I read a statement recently, which of course is so true, that said that things like, sex and drugs, and alcohol, pornography etc, simple do not satisfy yet perhaps the majority of the world population are continually going (some rushing) after these things, and even more sadly is the fact that many (so called) Christians are also chasing after them. We have to ask the question WHY? It is a cop out to simply say it has been a lack of Biblical Discipleship for new Believers that is the cause, the big question has to be asked, has the incorruptible seed (sperma) entered the womb of their heart, and has spiritual conception taken place??????
King David says in Psalm 34:8 NKJV Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; the writer of the Book of Hebrews says in Hebrews 6:4-5 NKJV Or it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come,
I will not get into “losing your Salvation debate” but the Hebrews writer talks about TASTING THE HEAVENLY GIFT, and TASTED THE GOOD WORD OF GOD, David, says, when you taste YOU SEE THESE THINGS ARE GOOD, and this should so ACTIVATE your spiritual sense of taste so that you want MORE & MORE.
I am going to take a number of Scriptures about taste and satisfaction and see if we can find some keys here.
Psalm 36:8 NKJV They are abundantly satisfied with the FULLNESS of Your house, AMP O.T. They relish and feast on the abundance of Your house; MESSAGE To eat our fill at the banquet you spread.
As we pass this verse through the Cross and apply New Covenant principles to it, God is saying, a great key to spiritual satisfaction is to get planted in a local church, sit under the Word of God, and let the Elders feed you, as Jesus declares in John 21:15&17. Both the Lambs and the sheep.
We must also learn TO FEED OURSELVES Psalm 63:5 NKJV My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, MESSAGE I eat my fill of prime rib and gravy; We would be very concerned if a teenage child said “Mummy feed me”. Ask the Lord ot increase your HUNGER.
Here are some more verses for you: Psalm 107:19 NKJV For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.
MESSAGE He poured great draughts of water down parched throats;
the starved and hungry got plenty to eat. Let us get DESPERATE for more of God in our lives. God does not tease us, He wants to totally satisfy us.
I love Jer. 31:14 NKJV I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance,
And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord.”MESSAGE I’ll make sure that their priests get three square meals a day, and my people have more than enough. God’s Decree”. Let’s join Joel 2:19 NKJV with Jeremiah. “Behold, I will send you grain and new wine and oil, and you will be satisfied with them. We are all N.T. priests so:
WHAT DOES GOD WANT TO GIVE US TO SATISFY US.
The Grain, The Word of God
The New Wine. The JOY of the Lord
The Oil. A fresh ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit.
Friends, LET’S GET DESPERATE, and lay hold of all the glorious promises, and EXPERIENCE THE SATISFACTION THAT ONLY COMES FROM GOD.
