THE WORD FOR TODAY
Jeremiah 31-33 (Click to read Today’s Word)
Truth for Today
Jeremiah 31:14 I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord.
Remember the song, “I can’t get no…satisfaction.”? It’s the cry of lots of people. We tend to try everything we know to find satisfaction. We struggle in our search for satisfaction and more times than not…we make a mistake in the search.
Jeremiah had been preaching a very harsh message but now he shifts to one of hope. There is a remnant that would be ok…things would work out. In fact God said through Jeremiah, “My people shall be satisfied by My goodness.”
I love the hymn that has these words, “I am satisfied, I am satisfied, I am satisfied with Jesus…” God’s promise to us is satisfaction with His goodness. That is the promise Jesus made in John 10:10, “I have come that they (you and I) may have life and may have it more abundantly.”
The thief has only one goal…total destruction but Jesus wants to give people “life more abundantly”. Yes I am satisfied with HIS goodness and I pray that you too are filled to abundant joy by HIS goodness to you.
Father, THANK YOU for your goodness to us. We bless your Holy Name…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
