The satisfaction He gives is just right.
It doesn’t bloat like sugar.
It doesn’t numb like television.
It doesn’t fatigue like idols.
It doesn’t harm like addictions.
The satisfaction He offers, when we practice preferring Him over all else, is perfect.
It fills in a way that strengthens us, refreshes us, inspires us and changes us. He is the choice we never regret. He is the option that always helps and never hurts.
Take a leap of faith. For a moment, an hour, a day… do the challenging thing and say ‘No’ to ease and entertainment and indulgence and allow God to show you He is most satisfying. We roam a world screaming we need what it offers. May we be delighted outliers among crowds of discontentment and restlessness.
God, and God alone, is man’s highest good. He and he alone is the abundant fountain of all goods.HERMAN BAVINCK
