Psalm 36:8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
The Rolling Stones sold millions of records with their epic hit, “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction”. Apparently, unbridled immorality and more money than anybody could ever dream of having does not satisfy the human soul. Scripture confirms the truth of this song. Solomon wrote, “He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this [is] also vanity.” (Ecclesiastes 5:10) Why is it that worldly, temporal things cannot provide ultimate satisfaction? Because we were created to enjoy God and drink of the river of His pleasures. Living for sinful pleasures is like drinking salt water to quench your thirst.
The prophet Isaiah wrote: “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.” (Isaiah 55:1-3)
Jesus told the woman at the well, “Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:13-14)
If Mick Jagger puts his trust in Jesus Christ, he may write his song ever: God Has Given Me Satisfaction!!
