Devotional – Got Satisfaction?
For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things. Psalm 107:9 ESV
The December 9, 2004 issue of Rolling Stone Magazine published a listing of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” as compiled by leading music industry insiders and experts.
The #2 song of all time? ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’ by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
Wow! What an admission… what a commentary regarding the world we live in… it offers NO satisfaction. Many years after its release Mick Jagger confessed the song was his “view of the world” and expressed his “frustration with everything.” (source) Truly this world has nothing of enduring value to offer your hungry soul.
Can’t get no satisfaction? Then stop looking in this world! Look to God alone, for only He can satisfy your longing soul.
Satisfied with Thee, Lord Jesus, I am blest;
Peace which passeth understanding, On Thy breast;
No more doubting, no more trembling,
Oh, what rest! Oh, what rest!
Taken up with Thee, Lord Jesus, I would be;
Finding joy and satisfaction All in Thee;
Thou the nearest and the dearest
Unto me, unto me.
