What Does Psalm 107:9 Mean? | Short Sermon Series
Psalm 107:9 reads "For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness."
It is not the self-sufficient soul whose hunger is satisfied but the one who yearns for the fullness of Christ. It is not the self-reliant individual who is refreshed with living water and feasts on the bread of heaven - but the one.. who, like the exhausted deer, pants for the refreshing water-pool in the midst of a dry and dusty desert. The one that seeks after God with their whole heart is the one that finds his satisfaction in the Lord.
It is not the self-satisfied, independent man who delights to be identified as 'master of his own destiny, nor the carnal Christian who leaves his first love to enjoy the passing pleasures of this fallen world.. but the one who cries: my soul thirsts for the Lord.. my soul craves for the living God, who can claim with surety: He has satisfied my thirsty soul, and my hungering heart He has filled with many good things.
Heavenly Father, my soul longs for You in a world that is spiraling into the abyss and my soul thirsts for close contact and more intimate fellowship with You. Thank You that You have satisfied my lost soul with Your saving grace so that I have peace with You.. and thank You that now that I am saved by grace through faith.. the peace of God reigns in my heart and in Christ I have all that I need. May I grow in grace and in a more intimate knowledge of Him - both in the power of His resurrection and through the fellowship with His suffering, until His coming again - when I shall see Him face to face - AMEN.
