THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
In today's world, people are trying to FILL UP their lives with things.
It seems that a person gauges his prosperity by whether he makes more money than another.
The average American family's ambition seems to be that they should earn as much money as they are spending.
But, perhaps the best advice we could receive is "act your own wage!"
A woman lost her purse in a busy mall.
She went to the "lost and found" to see if anyone had turned it in.
A seemingly honest young man was there with her purse, and gave it to her.
She opened it, and said, "Hmmm, I remember having an hundred dollar bill, but now I have five twenties."
The young man said, "Yes Ma'am. The last time I found a lady's purse, she didn't have any change for a reward."
As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
The reward for those try to fill up their lives with things is to NEVER be filled!
Someone asked a very rich man one time, "How much money is enough?"
He answered, "A little bit MORE!"
At the final day, those who have lived trying to fill up their lives with things will find themselves in a bottomless pit with absolutely NOTHING!
But those who spend time trying to fill their lives with God, will awake on that final day to realize they have HIM!
What great realization!
David says in this song, he will then be "satisfied!"
His body will awaken, and he will live in the likeness of God.
Satisfaction is desire met.
It is finding the fulfillment of a need. Satisfaction is also a condition.
It is a state of being.
The physical need for water can be satisfied by finding water to drink.
But the spiritual condition of satisfaction can only be received from God.
Today, let us ask ourselves, "How much time am I spending truthfully trying to FILL UP my heart with God."
