DAILY READINGS: Judges 4:1-24; Isaiah 25:1-12; 1 Corinthians 4:1-21

As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness. Psalm 17:15

At least ten times the Psalmist speaks of being satisfied. The world claims to offer satisfaction, but time after time, to our sorrow, we’ve found that its waters fail. Its joys are shallow and its pleasures fleeting. Note Jacob’s response in Genesis 45 when he saw the wagons sent from Egypt for his deliverance, “It is enough…I will go” (Genesis 45:28, KJV). Concerning the things of Christ, can you say from the depths of your heart, “It is enough, I am satisfied”? —W. H. Gustafson

Satisfied with Thee, Lord Jesus, I am blest;
Peace which passeth understanding on Thy breast;
No more doubting, no more trembling, O, what rest! —H. Bennett
