God is the only lasting source

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart..–Psalm 37:4

As human beings we are created by God to be happy and to feel good about ourselves. As a matter of fact, we must feel good about ourselves, or eventually we will develop some sort of unhealthy uncontrolled behavior to get the good feelings we crave.

Think about it. A person who is addicted to drugs probably began using them because his pain was so intense he felt compelled to get rid of it, even if only temporarily. The same thing is true of drinking, or using food as a comfort. If we do not get good feeling from the inside, then we attempt to create them through outside means.

God created us that way and He’s the only One who can satisfy us. When we go to something other than God to make us feed good about ourselves, we’re really just replacing something real with a cheap substitute.

Whatever your emotional needs are today, know that only God can meet them. He is the only lasting source of life. Got to Him today–He’s the only One who can satisfy.

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
