Psalm 145:16 NKJV, “You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.”
Although this verse is simple, it’s filled with life changing truth. God is promising us that He will satisfy us. What Christ Jesus offers us is deeper than temporary happiness associated with worldly pleasures. He offers us true satisfaction and contentment. He satisfies the longing in our souls and gives us His perfect peace.
When I find myself feeling discontented, I have to repent and humble myself under God’s mighty hand. I have to remind myself that God is good. He always does what is right.
1 Peter 5:6 NIV, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.”
The wisdom of God surpasses our human knowledge. His greatness goes far beyond our earthly degrees and accomplishments. We can always tell God exactly how we feel. He cares about every detail of our lives no matter how small.
There is safety in being humbled before God. He always has our best interest at heart, and He will lift us up to higher levels in Him as we grow in our faith. The more humble we are the more He can use us for His glory.
The hand of Jesus satisfies us. Look to Him to have your voids filled. Look to Him to be made whole.
