The Ultimate Satisfier - You will no longer feel empty inside.
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
With a relationship with Jesus, you'll always have what you need! Jesus can meet your needs and fulfill ALL your desires, removing the feeling of dissatisfaction.
You won't feel the need to get involved in relationships, social groups, or activities to feel complete because he will give you the type of satisfaction that brings joy, peace, and contentment. You will never be thirsty (longing for something or someone) again.
You will no longer have a need for anything destructive or temporary like drugs. Or, you won't feel the need to get involved in relationships to feel complete. All that will be needed is to connect to the source because when you do, it will quench your thirst—it will satisfy your soul.
You will no longer feel the need to pursuit things that in the end only stringed-you-along and never give you fulfillment.
A popular example of your pursuits is chasing after money. When you focus on chasing money instead of chasing God, the money or means (i.e., job, business. opportunity) has now become your idol or Baal. This has now become your Lord instead of your Creator.
This decision comes with problems like temptations, bad influence, being steered away from purpose, and never coming to full satisfaction because you will always crave more.
When you chase after God instead of money, the Lord will guide you continually, giving you water (always having what you need) when you are in your dry season, and restore your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring (Isaiah 58:11 NLT).
When you are dealing with depression or anxiety, (the source) can console you (Psalms 94:19)... When you know you have someone to fall back on for anything, whom you can trust, who has all the answers, who will provide and protect you, then you have much to be joyful for (Romans 15:13). Excerpt from My Love Is Unconditional.
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Romans 14:17)
With Jesus you have peace. We have enough things here on earth that are designed to take away our peace. You don’t have to look far or look outside of yourself; peace stealers are everywhere. But the satisfaction that come from God allows you to be at peace even when you are in unpeaceful situations.
Some of us have lived life thinking we have to accept this way of living, but there is a different kind of living when you have a relationship with Jesus. His peace is powerful enough to remove anything or anyone that gets in the way of your happiness (Proverbs 14:30).
You don't have to change careers, move somewhere else, or find another spouse because connecting to this source (Jesus) will give you the ultimate satisfaction. You will have an abundant life—a life that is complete (John 10:10). Also, you won't desire to be greedy because the excessive appetite will no longer be there.
You will no longer feel empty inside because you are now living with purpose. You will have direction and no longer be confused because purpose has now become your motivator and answer.
The feeling of wanting something so much, believing it will give you satisfaction will be replaced with truth. You will not be consumed with the concerns of life and those lustful yearning desires will be removed.
This is what being free in Christ Jesus looks like, it will make you free from anything in life that steals your joy, peace, and from what keeps you mentally or physically in bondage (John 8:35, 2 Corinthians 3:17, John 8:32).
Jesus is the ultimate satisfier. With Jesus Christ you will be fully satisfied. You won't need things, resources, people, fame, career, title, position, money, or social status to make you happy, content, or pleased. All you will need and want is Him.
My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work - John 4:34.
Just like Jesus, when you do the will of the Father you will be provided with what you need to maintain in life and grow, and you will no longer need to depend on temporal and materialistic things, solutions, or services to give you what you need to have a satisfying life.
Try Jesus, then you will see that you'll never thirst again!
