Having Satisfaction in the Household of God

We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house. (Psalm 65:4)
God is good. Everything He does is good. Everything He gives is good. Every good thing comes from Him. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, which whom there is no shadow of turning” (James 1:17). Good He is; good He shall ever be.

God does not withhold any of His goodness from His people. “The LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalm 84:11). “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32). He “gives us richly all things to enjoy” (1 Timothy 6:17). He is the God who “satisfies your mouth [your desires] with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s” (Psalm 103:5).

What complete and utter satisfaction we have in God. He fills us to the brim, and then He makes our cup overflow.
How precious is your lovingkindness, O God!
Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.
They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house,
And You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures.
(Psalm 36:7-8)
Drink deeply of the goodness of God. Everything you’ll ever need can be found in Him in abundance and He offers it to you freely in Jesus Christ. Dive into the river of His pleasures until you are thoroughly satisfied in His love.
