Day 31: Fully Satisfied


I can't find my keys

when they are in my hand

I can't find my sunglasses

when they are on my head

And the best one yet,

I am talking on the phone and looking for it at the same time

and I still can't find it!

Sound familiar to you?

looking for something you already have

But what about~

I can't find peace

I can't find hope

I can't find love

so you look for it in all the wrong places

because

what you have

where you are

is just not enough

and

you just won't be happy until

you find it....

But did you know that

you are

looking for something you already have

What are you looking for?

What are your areas of discontent?

Be content with what you have because it is what you have

Be content for where you are because that is where you are

Be content waiting for what you want because God knows what you need

What if God froze your life this second and this is how it would be the rest of your life?

You could see this as a blessing or a curse, depending on how you look at it.

Would God be enough

if you never got what you really wanted?

but

What if you what you have right now is exactly what you needed~

would that be enough?

God sent Jesus to

to be your everything,

and if He is all your had

would He be enough?

Hmm....

Of course the right answer is YES but isn't it hard...

~to be content in the moment no matter if you are hungry, angry, lonely, tired or bored

~to be content in the moment no matter if your are happy or sad

~to be content in the moment no matter if I am _____________.

Only if I could be

Content.

Paul tell us in Philippians 4:12 that he

“...learned to be content in all circumstances”

In ALL circumstances..

"whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Philippians 4:12

Contentment doesn’t mean being satisfied with the end result. It means being okay with where you are today,

where you were yesterday,

and not worrying about tomorrow.

Content:

"a state of satisfaction"

Satisfaction:

"fulfillment of one's wishes, expectations, or needs, or the pleasure derived from this"

But then there is

the Law definition of satisfaction:

the payment of a debt or fulfillment of an obligation

Content

in

Jesus~

the One who paid our debt

Only He satisfies fully.

It isn’t in my fulfillment of “my” wishes,

"expectations, or needs, or the pleasure derived from this"

because God has

His wishes,

His expectations

for me that

He wants to fill.

It isn’t about

my wishes,

my expectations

or

my needs

unless they are what He wants,

and if He wants what He knows is best for me then

I am

then

you are

content

to be..

right where you are, wherever you may be

right where you are, no matter what you may be feeling...

content

to be satisfied

because Jesus satisfied

by living out the law definition of satisfaction..

"the payment of a debt or fulfillment of an obligation".

So

Let's Fast from

Discontentment

by

Eating

the

Only

Food that

Fully

Satisfies~

I AM the Bread of Life

he who comes to Me

will never go hungry

&

he who believes in Me

will never be thirsty

John 6:35
