Abundantly Satisfied

 7How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
 8They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
 9For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

 Abundantly Satisfied

How many of us can truthfully say that we are abundantly satisfied with life? Probably none of us would really say that, would we? As a matter of fact, life seems to be so filled with unexpected difficulties that we often tend to go from one crises to another. How, then, could David say such a thing?

As Christians, I fear we do not spend enough time meditating upon the things of the Lord, nor do we spend enough time laying all of our difficulties at the feet of Jesus. Was David's life more simple than ours? Was it easier for him to live for God than it is for us? 

Not many of us will ever live the role of the president or king of a nation, and most of us have not had to live several years of our lives hiding from an enemy who is determined to keep us from taking over his position as king. Yet, this is exactly the life that David lived, and he still wrote: The children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house.

Could it be that our eyes are focused on the wrong thing? 

This world has nothing to offer our thirsty souls, but in Christ is the fountain of light, and in His light we see light. Yes, there is light to see; it is a perfect, holy, and pure light that leads us to our dear Savior who purchased our souls so that we would not have to live in a world consumed with darkness, but rather could bask in the heavenly light of God our Father.

What happens when we become focused upon God? We shall be abundantly satisfied! What a kind and loving God we serve!

God Bless You,
