Ultimate satisfaction can only be achieved by one whose soul has been granted eternal life by the “Author and Finisher of Faith” – the Lord Jesus Christ. Throughout the Bible we learn that God Himself is our ultimate satisfaction. Psalm 16:11 declares, “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” In Genesis 15:1 God announced to Abram (God later changed his name to Abraham), “After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.”
Psalm 36:8 gives the child of God this assurance: “They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.” Psalm 42:1-2 pictures those who hunger and thirst for God Himself: “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
The Christian longs for the day when he can “inherit all things” according to Revelation 21:6-7, “And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”
The word “overcometh” means “to be victorious”. Have you become victorious in Christ?
