Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 12th November

Sanctified Souls Are Satisfied

My people shall be satisfied with my goodness, says the Lord. (Jeremiah 31:14)

The kind of people who are satisfied with God are marked out as God’s own. He is pleased with them, for they are pleased with Him. They call Him their God, and He calls them His people. There is a mutual communion of delight between God’s Israel and Israel’s God.

These people are satisfied. This is a grand thing. Very few of the sons of men are ever satisfied, let their lot be what it may. Only sanctified souls are satisfied souls. God Himself must both convert us and content us.

It is no wonder that the Lord’s people should be satisfied with the goodness of their Lord. Here is goodness without mixture, mercy without chiding, love without change, favour without reserve. If God’s goodness does not satisfy us, what will? Surely there is a wrong desire within if it be one which God’s goodness does not satisfy.
