Daily Devotional – 3/16/15 “Just be satisfied!”

You are never satisfied with anything, always looking for more when you have all you need. You are never content with what’s in your hand because you want more than you can actually hold. You’re full with food in your mouth yet you’re still reaching for more. You got a good husband or wife at home yet you’re still looking for more. You’re being spiritual fed at your church yet you’re still looking for more. You’re never satisfied. You complain because your husband doesn’t put the toilet seat down but does he complain when he has to lift it up? You complain because the kids won’t clean up their room but they could be out standing on somebody’s corner slanging drugs. You complain because the pastor asks for a raise yet you can miss Sunday when you’re sick, he or she can’t or don’t. You’re never satisfied. Always complaining about the way you look yet you never put in an effort to change it. Always complaining about the job yet you won’t look for another one. Always complaining about being sick but you won’t take the course of treatment the doctor prescribes. Always complaining about your life but you won’t trust God’s plan. Always complaining about not having but you’ve yet to give God His 10% – you are never satisfied. Philippians 4:11-13 says, “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”

Beloved, the bible says in Hebrews 13:5 “Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” 1 Timothy 6:6-8 says, “Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.” All I am saying is this – be satisfied with whose you are because then you will be satisfied with who you are. We are made in the likeness of God, in His image and if you aren’t where you are supposed to be, on your walk to your destiny/purpose, then get up and change it but stop complaining. You’re alive today which means you have another chance – take it! You have another opportunity to try again – try it! Be satisfied with something before it’s too late! It makes no sense to be unsatisfied and dead.
