Verse Thoughts

It is God Who puts a hunger in our heart.. both for justification and sanctification. The unbeliever is drawn by the Father’s cords of love and convicted of their sinfulness and need of a Saviour through the ministry of Holy Spirit. And when faith in Christ’s sacrificial work is finally received into the heart, that man or woman is born of the Spirit of God.. and a thirsty soul who aches for peace with God – is satisfied.

But it is also God who instills a deep hunger in the heart of the Christian, and so like Paul they reach a point in their lives when they too cry out: that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death. And the one who has been saved by grace through faith begins to learn that salvation is not only that exciting point of rebirth into the family of God, but is also a long and often difficult journey through life.. where faith is tried and tested – and God is proved to be faithful once again. They discover that this life is a day by day journey, where sweet fellowship with the Father can be realised.. and the lovely Lord Jesus becomes more real to them.. and so much more precious, than on the day they first believed.

Blessed are they that seek the Lord with their whole heart, is the pronouncement of the Psalmist.. and those that seek Him with their whole heart discover over time… that He is indeed the one that satisfies the thirsty soul, and calms the troubled breast. Christ alone is the living water of life and those who know Him discover Him to be a well of refreshing water, that springs up into everlasting life.

It is not the self-sufficient soul whose hunger is satisfied but the one who yearns for the fullness of Christ. It is not the self-reliant individual who is refreshed with living water and feasts on the bread of heaven – but the one.. who like the exhausted deer, pants for the refreshing water-pool in the midst of a dry and dusty desert. The one that seeks after God with their whole heart is the one that finds his satisfaction in the Lord.

It is not the self-satisified, independent man who delights to be identified as ‘master of his own destiny,’ nor the carnal Christian who leaves his first love to enjoy the passing pleasures of this fallen world.. but the one who cries: my soul thirsts for the Lord.. my soul craves for the living God, who can claim with surety: He has satisfied my thirsty soul, and my hungering heart He has filled with many good things.

ENCOURAGEMENT | PSALM 107:9 | HE SATISFIES THE LONGING SOUL

Written by H, Posted in Christian Living, Encouragement

“For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” (Psalm 107:9)

Contentment. You’ve likely heard the saying, “comparison is the thief of joy“. Similarly, comparison is also the thief of contentment. It’s not until you learn to love what you have that you’ll learn to be content.

David wrote Psalm 107 as a prayer of thanksgiving to God. Thanksgiving is a huge key to contentment. I love Psalm 107:9, which reads: “For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” You know that feeling of satisfaction when you’re really thirsty, and you take a drink from a nice, tall glass of water? Or what about when you’ve working all day with little or no time to break for food, and you sit down to enjoy one of your favourite meals?

Having a relationship with God has a similar effect. Only God can satisfy the deepest longings of your soul, and only He can fill your hungry soul with goodness.

If you’re looking for true contentment, consider these suggestions:

• Keep your eyes on God

• Give thanks, to God for all He’s blessed you with, and to others when they impact your life

• Don’t compare yourself to others

• Focus on the things that have eternal value rather than earthly value

The next time you catch yourself longing, look to God. Only He can satisfy the longing soul and fill the hungry soul with goodness. You’ll only ever be truly content when you know the Lord as your Saviour.

“For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” (Psalm 107:9)
