Dedication to God Equals Satisfaction
1 Timothy 6:6 (ERV)
Devotion to God is, in fact, a way for people to be very rich, but only if it makes them satisfied with what they have.
To be satisfied with what you have is a gift from God. The way to satisfaction is to be dedicated to God in all that we do, but what does that mean? It means to keep him first in your life, to share your life with him—your dreams, desires, and thoughts. Invite God into every aspect of your life. If you do, satisfaction will follow.
What a gift that God teaches us how to be rich despite our circumstances. In order to be satisfied, our trust must be solely on God and not ourselves. We must die to ourselves and realize God is our all. There can only be one master. (Matthew 6:24)
Who is master of your life? You or God?
Father, you are the Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Creator of the universe, and you want a relationship with me. I invite you into my normal, everyday life. I want to walk with you, sharing my whole day with you—the good and the bad. I ask you to give me satisfaction in all that I do today, and I pray that I will keep my eyes solely on you. Thank you for meeting me where I am, and that is enough for me. God, you know my heart, you know my desires, either change my desires or give me patience to wait on your timing. I love you and thank you that you are always there for me.
