Jeremiah 31:14,25-26 reads as follows:
And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord . For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul. Upon this I awaked, and beheld; and my sleep was sweet unto me.
In this life we run into things that we don’t fully understand and we get frustrated because we’re not all knowing. That was personally experienced with the word “satiate” today. I had to look that word up to fully understand the meaning. I know I could dig deeper into this word, but today I choose to hold onto the meaning of being truly satisfied. Similarly, being truly satisfied rides in the same truck as being content. Are we content today? Are you content? The alternative is fretting about things that don’t make sense in this world and letting that take your mind off Christ and His glory? Today I am choosing to remain satiated with God and to walk each step as He wants me to walk.
Stop and think about a few times you’ve truly been satisfied…
Maybe you were on a beach somewhere or out on a boat. Alternatively, maybe you were at a relatives eating that perfect bowl of chili on a winter day. Undoubtedly, God allows us to have satisfied moments, but often we forget to remember them. Maybe that’s because stress seems to satisfy the flesh. I deal with many sleepless hours with my 16-month-old daughter if she’s not feeling well. On the other hand, when God allows that full night’s sleep, oh how I enjoy that rest. Do you need that true rest? Have you been going 100 miles an hour for far too long? Maybe this pandemic hasn’t slowed you down, but you’ve found yourself stressed due to the situation. Remember that even God rested. Likewise, He wants you to rest as well because He wants the absolute best for His children.
