“…and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, declares the Lord.” Jer. 31:14
Are you satisfied? I mean really satisfied, deep down in your soul?
Here are things that would evidence that we are satisfied with God’s goodness. My list is by no means exhaustive.
1. We would not grumble or complain. Philippians 2:14
2. We would not be hurtful or critical. Ephesians 4:32
3. We would be able to sit still. We would not be so busy that we didn’t have time to sit still. Psalm 46:10
4. We would not look for love in all the wrong places. Jeremiah 31:3
5. We would be joyful. Psalm 63:5
6. We would be content. Hebrews 13:5
7. We would share the source of our satisfaction. 1 Peter 3:15
8. We would be grateful. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
9. We would meditate on “whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8
10. We would know that He is enough in every situation and circumstance. Jeremiah 31:14
What else can you add to this list that would evidence in YOUR life that you are satisfied, really satisfied with the goodness of God?
“For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish.” Jeremiah 31:25

One thought on “Satisfied?”
This really got me under conviction. I have found myself grumbling a lot lately since starting a full time job and not having enough time for things I truly enjoy.
God gave me a great job and here I am complaining. Thank you for God’s word reminding me to be satisfied.
