Never Be Satisfied

But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. ~ Revelation 2:4-5

Many of us have become satisfied in our faith, and many of us believe that this is good because we are now comfortable in our faith, but comfort is not satisfaction. Comfortable in your faith means you’re sure of your faith and your salvation in Christ Jesus. Whereas satisfied means you’re satisfied with your relationship with Christ and stop seeking Him and all that He has for you. Moses spoke to the LORD through a burning bush (Exodus 3), he saw the wonders of God through the ten plagues of Egypt (Exodus 7:14-12:14), he saw God in the form of a pillar of cloud and in the form of a pillar of fire (Exodus 13:17-22), yet he always sought more of God (Exodus 33:12-23). And what Moses desired and sought from God was what he received.

When we become satisfied in our relationship with Christ, our love grows cold, just like in a relationship with another person. If we stop seeking to get to know our friend or partner more, then the relationship will slowly grow cold, and you won’t even realize it. Don’t allow yourself to grow cold in your faith. Stay on fire for God so that He might continue to reveal Himself to you because we can never know God enough. There is always more to know or learn about Him. We can always grow closer to Him. The moment we become satisfied in our relationship with God is the moment we begin to walk away from Him and into the arms of another.

LORD God, please set a fire deep inside of me that burns bright for You. Help me to keep the flames burning so that they never grow dim. Help me to pant for You as the deer pants for water because You are even more important than water. Without You, I am nothing. Help me to live my life in a way that shows that to You and the world. Help me to never be satisfied in my relationship with You, LORD God. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
