True Satisfaction

Psalm 37:4

“Delight thyself also in the Lord;

and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”

I remember a conversation I had with a friend a few years ago. It was a conversation that was filled with pain, confusion, and longing. I want you to know that my friend is a good person. Actually, a Godly person. And yet, there seemed to be some things that were simply out of reach . . . things prayed for, believed for, longed for. But, sometimes time can be an uncooperative thing. Especially when you’re praying, believing, longing and nothing seems to be happening.

That’s when my friend brought up Psalm 37:4:

“I’m doing everything I know to do. I’m serving Jesus. I love Jesus with all my heart. I’m delighting in Him. Yet, there’s this desire that’s going unfilled . . . a longing that seems out of reach . . . So, tell me what I’m doing wrong. I’m delighting in Him, so why?”

Can you relate?

Have you been there?

Are you there now?

I don’t think my friend is alone is asking these questions. We’ve all been there. We don’t understand why things are happening the way they are. Or, why they’re not happening at all. Maybe, we’ve even held on to Psalm 37:4.

I want to ask you a question.

An, honest question.

Please, think a bit with me.

Could it be that we’re making Psalm 37:4 say something that it doesn’t actually say? Is it possible that we’re using it to simply fulfill our worldly desires? Perhaps, there is a greater meaning to this text that will lead us to a level of true satisfaction. Let’s look at what the verse actually says.

To fully understand what the psalmist is saying, there are two questions that we need to answer:

The first, what does it mean to delight in something?

And second, what is a desire?

What does it mean to delight in something?

When considering the definition of delight, we realize that to delight is to gain great pleasure, satisfaction, or enjoyment. It could be described as a feeling of very great pleasure, or what brings great pleasure.

If we apply this to the statement in the psalm it would look something like this:

“Gain your great pleasure, great satisfaction, great enjoyment in the Lord . . .”

What is a desire?

We’ll do the same here as we did before, we’ll simply define desire. Desire defined carry’s the thought of a craving, a wish, a longing, or what you really want. This longing, craving is for what will bring satisfaction or enjoyment. It’s an expressed wish with the objective to obtain.

So, let’s apply this thought to the second half of our verse:

“. . . and He shall give thee that which you crave, wish, long for . . .

He shall give thee that which brings satisfaction or enjoyment of thine heart.”

Do you see it?

The answer is right there in the meaning of the words!

“Gain your great satisfaction in the Lord;

and He will give you that which satisfies.”

In other words, when He becomes that which brings great satisfaction in our lives, He will give that which satisfies. He will give us more of Himself, His presence. Then, we’ll find what true satisfaction is all about!

When we’re always seeking other things we’ll never have enough. It will simply be a constant search for the next thing that will bring us temporary enjoyment, pleasure. But, when He becomes our deepest craving, longing – He’ll give more and more of Himself and we’ll find He is enough. Until He is enough, we’ll never have enough. But, when we understand He is enough, then we’ll have all we need.

So, let me ask a few more questions:

What is it that you crave? Long for?

Where is your great satisfaction found?

Is He that which brings great satisfaction in your life?

Only when He becomes our longing, our craving, our great satisfaction will we ever know true satisfaction.

Be encouraged this week.

Find your longings met in Him.

Weekend Word From SGNScoops

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 14, 2018 – 8:37 am -

Weekend Word

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. (Proverbs 4:23)

Pay attention to what the verse says… Everything flows from your heart – your hopes, your dreams, your fears, your anxieties, your anger, your forgiveness, your humility, your peace, your greed, your generosity, and your love. Yes, everything that makes you who you are is in your heart. So above all else, your heart needs a guard – and God is your guard. When the Holy Spirit fills your heart by faith, He flushes out sin and leaves enough room for the Fruit of the Spirit. Only a heart guarded by God can bear up under the influence of ungodliness. A heart submitted to Christ in prayer is protected by Christ with peace. Let me ask you, friend, “How is your heart?” You may feel fainthearted today – weary in your faith and work. If so, take time to slow down, rest and allow the Holy Spirit to restore your heart to wholeness. Perhaps your heart is broken by past hurt or present rejection. Seek your heavenly Father to be forgiven and to forgive. Be on guard! A foolish heart forgets God or even stops believing God. Excessive worry can discourage you.

 

When we are paralyzed by fear and anxiety, we sometimes behave as if God does not exist. So, we must guard against a foolish heart by gaining a heart of wisdom. So I have an answer for the problems… “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7)

Crossroads releases Jordan Family Band, Sunday Drive albums

Written by Staff on July 13, 2018 – 2:52 pm -

Jordan Family Band. Reach

Jordan Family Band. Reach

Arden, North Carolina (July 13, 2018) – The Jordan Family Band’s album Reach and Sunday Drive’s album A Million Miles are now available from Crossroads.

The Jordan Family Band hopes to spread God’s word far and wide with Reach from Skyland Records. With reminders to always live as an example of Christ, it sends a powerful message of what can be accomplished with a little faith in even the darkest of times.

“When we began the groundwork for this new record, we carefully chose songs we felt were divinely given to us, whether it by our pen or through friends of our ministry. We had no selfish endeavors! We wanted to not only ‘Reach’ the world and those who feel like their situation is helpless, but also the tired and discouraged Christian who is on the brink of giving up!” says Josh Jordan of the Jordan Family Band. “It’s not just an album title, ‘Reach’ is our new vision — He reached for us in our most desperate state and delivered us, and He will do the same for you.”

With energetic vocals and vivid, narrative lyrics, the Jordan Family Band hopes to “Reach” listeners from all walks of life and

Sunday Drive. A Million Miles

Sunday Drive. A Million Miles

spread the gospel. Listen to Reach HERE.

Sunday Drive’s A Million Miles from Sonlite Records carries a resounding message that God is never too far away with songs about strong belief, grateful praise and reliance on faith. With a classic country style and upbeat lyrics, the gospel group reminds listeners that following Christ leads to a joyful life, despite the ups and downs we all face.
“We are so excited about our new recording A Million Miles. We reached out of our songwriting box and asked some of the greatest writers in Gospel music for some songs and did they come through,” says Jeff Treece. “The title cut ‘A Million Miles’ is written by our good friend, Mark Bishop. Our first single ‘Living In The Middle Of His Will’ is written by Dianne Wilkinson and Lee Black. It also includes original, easy listening, classic and comedy songs. Come take a trip you will never forget — ‘A Million Miles’ by Sunday Drive.”

New Legacy Helps SUMMERPraise! Celebrate its 20th Anniversary

New Legacy Helps SUMMERPraise! Celebrate its 20th Anniversary

Nashville, Tenn  – On August 5th New Legacy Project will be performing as part of the popular SUMMERPraise! Concert series that started in 1998. The Sunday evening event features concerts at the Don and Metta Mitchell Amphitheater for the Performing Arts, 225 N Water Street, Owosso, Michigan. This year’s season line-up will include:

July 16 – The Thurstons

July 23 – Three Bridges

July 30 – The Sheldons

August 5 – New Legacy Project

August 12 – Stronghold Quartet

Lynn Webster, event coordinator, said “The Owosso Amphitheater is such a beautiful setting for the Sunday evening gospel concerts, allowing Owosso-area believers a wonderful venue for great music and fellowship!”

In the twenty years since its inaugural season, many popular groups have been part of the SUMMERPraise! series including the Blackwoods, the Dixie Melody Boys, Gold City, and many others. Rick Price, owner of New Legacy Project, says of the event “It’s just such a thrill to be in the prestigious company of the many groups that have performed throughout the years. We’re blessed and honored to have be included in their 20th anniversary year celebration.”

The popular gospel music series is sponsored by the Owosso Area Ministerial Association, and a love offering is received to help support the event expenses. For more information contact Lynn Webster or Diana Webster at 989-723-1288.

This concert is part of New Legacy Project’s “I’ll Stand” tour, which became a reality to to bring attention to our US Veterans and their families who are not being recognized for the sacrifice they’ve made on our behalf, and who are struggling through illnesses and mental health issues as a result of their service. The group’s single “I’ll Stand” is being placed in the hands of our veterans, along with a letter of thanks, a bible, and other valuable resource information. NLP is working with churches across the U.S. to deliver these “thank you” packages into Veterans Hospitals. A portion of the proceeds that NLP receives from this concert will be used for this mission.
