Two weeks ago, Paul, my boss, led staff worship with some reflections on Psalm 145. Ever since then I keep coming back to this beautiful psalm of praise. The part that really struck a chord with me was verses 15-16:
The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time.
You open up your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
The way in which God satisfies our desires, if we let him, is something that has been going through in my head since then. Partly I think in response to the difficulties we have been having regarding our house move from Brentwood to Tonbridge, and I think in our wider scale of am I truly looking to God to provide for me, to excite me, to satisfy me.
Alongside this was the phrase ‘at the proper time’. God works in His time not ours. Simple to say, very difficult to understand but something I am learning more about.
Are you allowing God to satisfy your desires?
