Satisfied Or Not

Are you satisfied with your life, with your job, with your spouse, with your house, etc? Have you ever wanted something so badly that you say, I will never ask for anything else, only to find 6 mos or a year later that there is something else. How many times do we say, God had a hand in this, He got me this job, or this house or this car, and then later we are looking at other houses, cars, or jobs with envy and covet in our hearts? This brings up the question, are we ever really satisfied completely? As long as we are living in our flesh, probably not.

It is our flesh that makes us covet these things. Our flesh makes us covet sugar, or coffee, tobacco, or alcohol or whatever it is that we know we do not need. The next time we go on a fast, we need to fast with our whole flesh. Not just fast off one thing, but put our flesh under the fast of preparing it to meet Jesus. The one who gave His flesh on a cross.

It is that time of year that everyone should be doing a cleanse and a fast to keep your body free of toxins, so why not fast with our whole flesh. Why not fast off TV, radio, (with the exception of Christian channels to feed on) fast off FAST FOOD. Let's all fast and pray together for this election coming up. First let's do a cleanse, a total body cleanse, then fast and pray over our flesh, then we can come before the LORD with a clean heart, a right heart, seeking His wisdom in this election, and also in the things in our lives.

God has us where we are for a reason and for a season. Sometimes, we are like snowbirds and we just want to move because it gets a little uncomfortable where we are, a little too cold or hot. We need to make sure that our season is up, and we are not acting out of our selfish flesh instead of what GOD wants us to do. We need to pray before we make important changes in our lives, like moving away, buying a house, changing jobs, etc.

The good news is that we can be satisfied completely. If we put our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and have faith in what He tells us, then we can have peace in our lives and satisfaction in our decisions if we seek Him first, let the Holy Spirit guide us in all of our decisions. Quit making decisions on our own understanding and quit looking to the world for our answers, and look to Christ. AMEN!

1 John 2 v 15-17...Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it, but he who does the will of God abides forever...

PS 91 v 14-16....."Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.....

God wants you to be satisfied, and He tells you to deny your flesh, call on His name, and He will satisfy you. Christians we do not have to worry about the economy if we are living for Him and not for ourselves.

Call on the name of Jesus today and be satisfied.
