We live in a restless and dissatisfied culture. All of us feel a restlessness in our soul. It is that longing for something that will satisfy. Something that is so real, so authentic that when we find it our soul will be at rest. It what makes advertisers rich as they feed into that thirst, that restlessness. They make us dissatisfied with the car we drive, with the way we look or smell. If we buy this or that product then life will be better. This restlessness is not something new, it’s been around for thousands of years. Go back to King Solomon. He literally had everything the world had to offer at his disposal. He had wisdom, power, riches and pleasure but in Ecclesiastes he writes about the emptiness of it all. His father, King David, knew what it takes to be satisfied and he wrote about it in Psalm 63. In this psalm he talks about what ultimately satisfies. He thirsted for God and found satisfaction and security in knowing God personally, calling Him ‘my God’. If we wish to experience God in this deeply personal way we need to follow David’s lead. We too need to take every opportunity to turn our thoughts and our praise to God, and allow His presence to sustain us, like it did for David.
