“When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied. And because of what he has experienced, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins” (Isaiah 53:11 in the Holy Bible, New Living Translation)
The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ found satisfaction after he suffered and died on the cross for the sins of the whole world. Satisfaction as the world describes it may never come to some of us in this life. But those who seek to please God before their life is ended will discover that whatever pain and hurt they experienced on earth will be replaced with a crown and the satisfaction of the Savior’s proclaimation, ‘Well done!’
Prayer: Savior, the world declares that satisfaction will come with promotion, riches, beauty and power, but Your Word tells me that we will only find true satisfaction in living our lives according to Your purpose. It is what I do as a daughter of the King that will end in the satisfaction of an eternity spent with You. Amen!
