When God is Most Glorified in Us

God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.

(Let’s look at that again, this time a little bit slower)

God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.

I read this in a book by John Piper, the Pastor for Preaching and Vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  He is also an author, scholar, guest evangelist, and many other wonderful things. 

Piper’s passion is to exalt God and to show that God is inifinitely worthy of exultation. 

This particular quote has recently caught my heart, especially as I witness professed followers of Jesus not being satisfied with anything. 

If we say we believe in the sovereignty of God, we must believe that God ordains the things that are.  If this is true, then being satisfied with the things that are is part of being satisfied in God. 

Do you want to glorify God? — Then be satisfied in Him.

Be satisfied in the blessings that flow from His hands.  Be satisfied with the trials that have made their way into your life.  Be satisfied with your looks, your job, your bank account, your everything. 

Be satisfied with what God decrees and know that is for His glory and your good.

Be satisfied.
