The Soul Satisfied in Christ
“I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore, my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.”
In light of the Psalmist’s confidence in the Lord, Dr. T.J. Betts exhorted us this past Sunday to seek to consciously set the Lord before us and delight in him daily, for no other entity can satisfy the bliss and security our longing souls so much desire than Jesus Christ. Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) wrote “The Soul Satisfied in Christ,” a masterfully crafted expression of the most excellent and joyful condition of finding Jesus Christ delightfully satisfying, in his little book Gleanings Among the Sheaves. Spurgeon wrote…
“He who delights in the possession of the Lord Jesus hath all that heart can wish. As for created things, they are like shallow and deceitful brooks; they fail to supply our wants, much less our wishes. The bed of earthly enjoyment is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it, and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it; but in Jesus, there is room for imagination’s stretch and widest range. When Jesus is enjoyed, He puts a fulness into all other mercies; His house is full when He is there; His throne of grace is full when He sits on it; his guest chamber is full when He is master of the feast. The creature without Christ is an empty thing, a lamp without oil, a bone without marrow; but when Christ is present our cup runneth over, and we eat bread to the full. A dinner of herbs, when we have communion with Him, is as rich a feast as a stalled ox; and our narrow cot is as noble a mansion as the great house of the wealthy. Go not abroad, ye hungry wishes of my soul – stay ye at home, and feast on Jesus; for abroad ye must starve, since all other beloveds are empty and undesirable. Stay with Christ and eat ye that which is good and delight thyself in fatness.”
Brethren, no other place can satisfy our daily thirst, hunger, and need than our Master, Lord, Savior, and Friend himself. Therefore, let us ceaselessly set Him before us and delight ourselves in this everlasting bliss!
