He satisfies

He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.

You have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, to see Your power and Your glory. ~ My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. ~ Having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better.

I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness. ~ They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. ~ They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. ~ "My people shall be satisfied with My goodness," says the Lord.

Ps. 107:9; 1 Pet. 2:3; Ps. 63:1-2; Ps. 84:2; Phil. 1:23; Ps. 17:15; Rev. 7:16-17; Ps. 36:8; Jer. 31:14

  3. Such refreshing thoughts. I was just thinking today about what a comfort it is to think of Jesus as our Great Shepherd.

  4. Thanks for that "light" and I wanted to say thank you as well for "The God I Love". I am going to find that book. I have always loved Joni. I saw her movie when it came out oh so many moons ago. She is a real inspiration to us that have the ability to walk to see that there is a deeper walk we must be making.

  5. I have been studing lately about what a hard master sin is, and how it in its nature points us ultimately to the glorious Lordship and sovereignty of our savior. Truly in the face of our own shortcomings we see that the Lord is all that can satisfy! He is truly good!
