Insatiable – the word  conjures images of sexual perversion. In the best light, it seems to describe the very fabric of our society today.

It is defined as…

Not satiable; incapable of being satisfied or appeased; very greedy; as, an insatiable appetite, thirst, or desire

It describes our individual (and collective) appetites for excitement, food, money, drugs, technology, entertainment, power, ego, sex, and prominence (and possibly every other desire that can be imagined).

In terms of government, Ronald Reagan summed it up… Insatiable

While much of the world struggles to just survive, in our society we work several jobs in order to have more than our neighbor. The collective motto seems to be, “He who dies with the most toys, wins.”

However, the REASON that people are never satisfied is that what they are searching for things that cannot satisfy. The deepest need/desire of a human being is to have intimate fellowship with our Creator.

One of the most unforgettable Scriptures is Jeremiah 31:14. In the King James Version it reads,

Jer 31:14 And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the LORD.

This applies to me (and you if you have been born again) – since Jesus died on the cross for our sins, we have become a nation of priests. Each Christian now has direct access to God as a priest. The word “satiate” is used to describe feeding until the receiver stops eating. That means that every child of God has a blessed promise that our Father will MORE than satisfy our desires!

When we receive God’s love in our hearts, we become satiated. We can stop seeking the ever more elusive “high” that adrenaline, power or other drugs can never deliver!

Be blessed & pass on the blessing…
