Are You Truly Satisfied?

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1)

How many truly satisfied people do you know? People can have all of the things of this world and not be satisfied.

John Muir, the great naturalist, was speaking to a Mr. Harriman—a man of great wealth and influence. John Muir said to Mr. Harriman, “I am richer than you are.” Mr. Harriman responded, “Well, how is that?” He said, “Because you don’t have all you want, and I do. So, I am richer than you.”

Ecclesiastes 5:10 says, “He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver” But it’s not just money that fails to truly satisfy. There’s really nothing that can satisfy us apart from the Lord.

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” That’s the only way that anyone will ever have satisfaction. It is only when you can say that wholeheartedly that you can also say, “I shall not want.”

  • Is the Lord your Shepherd?
  • Do you find your satisfaction in Him?
  • Is He truly first in your life?
