God is a satisfying portion. This world may fill a man, but can never satisfy him. Most have too much, but no one has enough. They are like ships that carry a burden heavy enough to sink it, but with room to hold more. The world cannot satisfy the senses, much less the soul. Where can true contentment be found? The earth says, “It is not in me”; no, heaven itself is not enough if God is not in it. If you long for the things of the world, you will find them nothing when you receive them. The world has been weighed in the balance and found wanting. However, once let God possess his heart, and then, and not before, his infinite desires are satisfied in the bosom of his Maker. God fully satisfies.
