Satisfied

When I was a kid, we spent a lot of time in the car. Once a month, we’d be on the road from one city to the next to visit family. Late in the evening when the sun had gone down and we could see the shimmer of the lights of home in the distance, we’d turn on oldies radio. Guaranteed, every time that station came on while we drove that particular highway, we’d hear the Rolling Stones (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. All six of us would sing along at the top of our lungs.

The song has become somewhat of an anthem for generations. The whole world sings, I can’t get no satisfaction, ’cause I try and I try and I try.

The solution to this epidemic is simple.

Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love,
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

Psalm 90:14 (ESV)

Satisfaction will never and can never be found in ourselves or the world around us. True and complete satisfaction can only come from the love of God.

Daily Bible reading: Psalm 90-92; Romans 11:1-21
