“Oh that men would praise the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness” Psalm 107:8-9.
For so many in our country, life is dissatisfying and empty. The masses go from one thing to another hoping to find satisfaction, peace, and true happiness.
We all know people who fill themselves with drugs – smoking and drinking whatever they can find – in order to harness enduring satisfaction within.
We all know people who are preoccupied with fitness, charities, ministries, businesses, academics, politics, etc. because it helps to ease the emptiness created by the knowledge that life is abominably empty, temporary, and difficult.
The Scriptures teach that “to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.”
Many people are lost in the sea of dissatisfaction: with their jobs, their marriages, their relationships, their music, their wealth, etc. because only Christ can fill the hungry soul with goodness – His goodness.
The blessing of satisfaction and fulfillment are spiritual, but many people try fill their lives up with physical, temporal things that only the spiritual benefits of faith in Christ can produce in the human heart.
No one outside of a covenant relationship with God by faith in the Gospel of Christ will experience enduring, eternal satisfaction and fulfillment in their souls.
Only the Lord Jesus can satisfy the longing soul. Only the Lord Jesus can fill the hungry soul with His goodness.
Are you longing for something more in life? Are you hungry for something more in your life? The Lord Jesus Christ is the answer! He will fill your hungry soul. He will satisfy your longing soul with His goodness. Christ died on the cross for your sins, and He rose again from the dead on the third day. Whoever repents (turns from) their sins and trusts Christ as their God and Savior, will be saved from eternal damnation in hell.
Christ is the only One that can fill and satisfy the hungry soul with His goodness.
It is my prayer that the Holy Spirit will open your heart to the truth of Christ Jesus – the Lord God of heaven and earth – and that you put your faith and trust in Him.
God bless you, dear friend.
