Where’s the Satisfaction?

Where’s the Satisfaction?

(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
The Rolling Stones
Produced by Andrew Loog Oldham
Album Out of Our Heads

I can’t get no satisfaction
I can’t get no satisfaction
Cause I try and I try, and I try, and I try
I can’t get no, I can’t get no

When I’m driving in my car
And that man comes on the radio
And he’s telling me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination

I can’t get no – oh no, no, no!
Hey hey hey! That’s what I say!
I can’t get no satisfaction

What do most of us do to uncover this elusive treasure?

We expect the right people, the correct position with money, brings happiness. And it does, for a time. That’s the point! At the end of success comes the realization we have spent our lives in pursuit of an illusion. Complete satisfaction does not come from the toys we play with, the people who surround us, or with riches.

Solomon held two distinctions. Wisdom and riches beyond any other man. But he spent a lifetime learning happiness is not found in possessions, women, and pleasure. Though he tried everything he could think of to satisfy his wish for fulfillment, he concluded everything except God is meaningless. (the book of Ecclesiastes.)

What does the satisfied individual have before they achieved joy?

1. The willingness to approach God for forgiveness is the avenue to freedom. Freedom from the guilt of doing wrong. He gives you, without charge, the life-changing gift of acceptance into the family of God.

People, processions, or prosperity cannot “forgive” you.

2. Realizing no matter how hard you work at mastering self, it’s not possible through human effort. Liberty from performing works to gain recognition. This is a gift of rest from the never-ending efforts to qualify or win your right to heaven.

Human effort cannot save you.

3. Unexplainable joy accompanies those who seek Jesus first. He is the one who carries your burdens, promises you victory over the devil’s lies and walks with you through every trial, hardship, and disaster. If you trust Him, he supplies the money that’s required, food to eat, clothes to wear and shelter. The Great I Am supplies every need.

You will never experience full satisfaction until you have encountered Jesus.

Proverbs 10:28
28 The prospect of the righteous is joy, but the hopes of the wicked come to nothing.

1 Peter 1:8-9
8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

Luke 15:7
7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
