The faithful love of the LORD is abundant, and He makes this clear to us as His people. All that He provides from His storehouse far exceeds what we need. When we go to Him for help, we are utterly satisfied as with rich food. When we seek Him, we find that as our portion, He is more than enough. His help is so thorough, so comforting that He causes us to rejoice in Him. His strength and glory is so splendid that it brings forth His people’s praise. Our LORD has given His absolute best on our behalf, and we overflow with goodness by His almighty Hand.
Even in the wilderness, the LORD causes His people to flourish. In a land that is dry and desolate, a world refusing the Living Water of life, God still provides for those who seek Him. Our thirst is met and, like trees by the riverside, we thrive by the sustaining love and grace of God. This is why King David eagerly seeks the LORD. He is in great need of Him, as are we. There is no other place for nourishment, no other source of life-giving help. Our eternity, our preservation has been established only by the King of kings on the Cross at Calvary. Because He has given us life, we need only depend on and trust in Him for it.
Where do you seek satisfaction? These things can sometimes be perceived as what sustains us as people. Is it in temporary things like material possessions, intellect, or accolades? These cannot satiate our thirst. All the world will one day decay. But God and His faithful love is everlasting.
