Hebrews 13:5-6 NLT

Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?”

Hebrew’s author repeatedly reminded the reader Jesus was all they needed. Jesus’ death on the cross gave God’s grace to all who follow Him. Satisfaction is found in a personal relationship with Jesus, not things. The Lord is constantly with His people. Deuteronomy 31:18, “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you or forsake you.” Reflecting on God’s presence in the past prepares believers for the present. Psalm 118:7, “The Lord is with me; he is my helper.” Satisfaction is found in a daily personal walk with Jesus Christ.

This translation goes right to the point and it’s what I needed to read today. What will satisfy my needs? These words offered me this question, “Is this a want or need?” I’m then led to Paul’s words in Philippians 4:11, “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” Being content or satisfied are equal sides to a coin. As a child of the King, when it’s tossed, I’m always the winner. My personal walk with Jesus brings contentment and satisfaction.

How does God bless you abundantly?

Simply satisfied sinners,

S
