‘When we are about our Father’s business we are most satisfied.’
I love this, because it is something that I really find true in my life. True heartfelt satisfaction for me comes when I am doing what I know God wants me to do and I am serving Him.
The disciples urged Jesus at one point in His life, '“Saying, “Rabbi, eat.” But He said to them, “I have food to eat of which you do not know.” Therefore the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought Him anything to eat?” Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. John 4:31-34
I am greatly challenged by that – I would love to be at the point where I am so satisfied by being about my Father’s business that I don’t even look for food! And that doesn't necessarily mean ministry, but anything where we know we are doing what God wants us to do and doing it for the glory of God - whether it's our daily work, cleaning, schoolwork, parenting...
Let’s set our eyes on eternal things, and do what God has called us to do, because in that we will be truly satisfied!
