In the writings of Proverbs King Solomon says “The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil (Pro 19:23).” Thus, those of us who fear the Lord should be satisfied with the life which God has given us through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. However, we are not always satisfied with the abundant life which the Lord provides. Too often, God doesn’t seem to be enough; too often we are not content with the life which God has given us; too often we complain more about what we don’t have than what we do have. Saints of God to abide satisfied is to be content or pleased with what God has given us which is abundant life, and where God has us at this point in our life. King Solomon seems to be telling us that if we have life in the Lord everything else will work itself out, and this is a man that had it all. But when it was all said and done this man said “Let us hear the conclusion of the matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man (Eccl. 12:13)”. Hence, he wanted us to know that God is more than enough. Furthermore, to abide satisfied in the Lord is to be content with the things we have, however, especially during the Christmas season we have a tendency to want, want and want; when what we have been given in Christ Jesus is more than enough. The Lord gives us things that money can’t buy, things such as life, health and strength, peace of mind, joy in the midst of difficult situations, unconditional love and the list could go on all day. Saints of God, if you don’t receive what you were hoping for this Christmas season, know that you have already received more than enough if Jesus is really the Lord of your life.
God Bless You
