Do you know God designed us to seek pleasure?
When we surrender to God, we find the pleasure that truly satisfies. Have you fully surrendered yourself to God? Are you finding your happiness in Him?
Several years ago I was searching the Scriptures regarding the topic of pleasure. I wrote down a paraphrased version of some of the verses I was reading as if He were speaking them to me. Listen to the words He spoke to me through His Word. Jeremiah 31:14 Ephesians 3:19 Colossians 2:20
You have looked for satisfaction in other places, but I am the one that satisfies you. You have given yourself to endeavors, projects, labors and relationships, but never experienced the feeling of satisfaction you crave.
The child of God desires the feeling of satisfaction and to know and be familiar with My words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” You are My child, and I want you to feel content and satisfied.
I gave My life so that satisfaction could be yours. I conquered dissatisfaction and discontent. I have begun a work in you which I promise to complete.
I have given you a new sense of purpose. Be confident that I am with you. Take My hand in yours and hold fast.
I am faithful and I establish you and I keep you from evil that keeps you dissatisfied.
The secret of living a satisfied life is to know My love, which passes human knowledge.
In Me you are perfectly accepted
and cherished. I love, forgive, strengthen and renew you. To know My love is to know the mercy of God. It is My joy to give you My satisfaction.
Hear My loving words to you. In Me you are complete. See yourself as having died with Me to the hunger for material things. You have escaped from the world’s crude desires to own everything that pleases and attracts your eye.
Do not live as if you still belong to the world. Know how much I enjoy your love; enjoy My goodness and My love toward you and be satisfied.
