LASTING Satisfaction Joy and Contentment

Lasting satisfaction, joy and contentment is only found in Jesus Christ. When we are in Christ and when He is in us. If Jesus Christ is not in us we are uncertain, insecure, anxious and filled with fear about the future, about death. But if we come to know Jesus Christ and we accept Him and He comes and dwells in us then He gives us peace beyond all understanding; but we need to be in Christ and Christ needs to be in us.

How does it happen that Jesus Christ can come and dwell in a person, be in us? If we accept Jesus Christ and obey His words, His commands, if we turn to Him repent from sin and from going after our own ways, our own desires and we obey Him go, after Him; stop sinning, be righteous and holy and if we follow Him through water baptism, being baptized in water for the washing off of our sins, and we keep on seeking Him then He gives His Holy Spirit to dwell in us, the Comforter to be with us forever.

The world, those who do not believe in Jesus, those who do not obey Him, and do not submit to Him, those who do not seek Him, cannot receive the Holy Spirit and they cannot experience that comforting communion with Jesus Christ. If we seek Him with all our heart and obey His words, He gives His Holy Spirit in us. He baptizes us in the Holy Spirit H gives in us streams of living water that fill us, flow through us, into eternal life, His Spirit in us guides us, teaches us, comforts us, is always with us, He satisfies our soul. He supplies in all that we need and we are content because Jesus Christ lives in us.

He even helps us to pray. We ourselves do not know what to pray, but if His Spirit dwells in us, He gives us a tongue, a heavenly tongue whereby we can pray; we can speak to God, mysteries. Nobody understands what we say; we ourselves do not even know what we are saying, but the Spirit who dwells in us, prays with us and for us according to the will of God and when we pray in the spirit we are edified. We are built up and that peaceful Water of the Holy Spirit flows through us and He gives us peace, peace beyond understanding. We do not know where it comes from, but that peace is Jesus Christ in us. I do not even know what I’m praying when I pray in tongues but my spirit prays to God. The Holy Spirit prays with me. He gives me utterance and I pray according to the will of God. I am edified, I’m satisfied, because I know that He prays according to the will of God in and through me and He supplies in all my needs. He gives me peace beyond understanding.

Is Jesus Christ living in you? Has He given you of His Spirit to be with you and in you, to comfort you? Do you pray in the spirit? Are you satisfied? Do you have the joy and peace contentment of Jesus Christ in you, that everlasting contentment? You only find that peace, joy and contentment in Jesus Christ. If you want that piece, if you want that joy, that never-ending comfort then seek Jesus with all your heart. Go after Him. Obey Him; submit yourself to Him. His Holy Spirit will come and dwell in you. He will guide you and He will teach you, will tell you all things, and He will give you peace beyond all understanding; peace and contentment that you cannot find in this world you can only find it in Jesus. Seek Jesus and He will satisfy your soul.

May Jesus bless you
