“Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” – Psalm 90:14
Am I truly satisfied in His love? I do my devotions daily, pray continually, and seek the Lords hand in all that I do. That’s the making of a good Christian right? Someone who is totally devoted to Him, I am doing my part, so shouldn’t He be doing His? The thing is God is doing His part, but it’s my own flesh that isn’t satisfied. I read and seek and He speaks, but I miss the word. This isn’t bad it is just that my mind is running to all the other things that consume my day. What am I going to wear today? How should I do my hair? Should I wear a hat or no hat? Maybe I should post a picture of this pretty place I am sitting. Oh I don’t have my phone maybe I should go get it. All the while my bible is sitting in my lap while my mind races and all God is saying is look down. This is your satisfaction, not the world around you. Lets have a couple more minutes my love before this world consumes you again.
Jesus wants to be our satisfaction so that we can be glad in what we do. So that when life doesn’t go as we planned for that day He is the strength we hold onto. It says that when we are satisfied by Him in the morning, we will rejoice and be glad all our days. This doesn’t mean for the few minutes or hours that follow, it is saying throughout all, meaning continuously. This may be hard for us to see right at this moment, I know it is for me, but when that first wave hits in your day, stop where you are and take a minute to call on your father. I am not only challenging you as a reader, but myself as well. I wanted to be satisfied by Jesus alone throughout my day. I know that it is only in that, that I will find the true steadfast love that I long for.
I pray now that you would give me the strength to rejoice in all areas today. I don’t know that troubles that this day brings, but I know that you have it all planned for me. You are waiting for my call in trouble so that you are able to satisfy my soul again. I love you Lord and I praise you.
