The Only One Who Can Satisfy Your Soul

The Lord is the only one who can provide for your needs and satisfy your soul. Do you believe that this is true? What other places do you turn to for satisfaction? In this video, Pastor David Platt urges listeners to run from the cares of the world and pursue God because only he knows what can satisfy us. Many seek to find satisfaction through material goods like wealth and worldly passions. However, Pastor Platt exhorts his listeners to seek God first because he can supply all of our needs.

  1. Staying in the Field of Christ
  2. Other Fields Lead to Dissatisfaction
  3. The Lord Supplies for Every Need

I urge every single person within the sound of my voice, in the words of Boaz, “Stay in this field,” in the fields of God. Like teenagers, do not run after the pleasures this world offers. The field of Christ satisfies so much better than all that stuff put together. Stay in His field.

Satisfying Your Soul

College students, young professionals, don’t run after all the stuff this world is dangling before you. Stay in God’s field. Singles, men, women, all across this gathering, there are fields around you beckoning for you to run after this person, that position, a better life, a bigger house, a nicer car, newer things, higher positions, worldly passions. Don’t do it. Stay in His field. You do not need to run into the fields of materialism or pornography, or addiction or immorality. Don’t run to those fields. You will seek and taste and toil. And in the end, you will inevitably find yourself unprotected and unfulfilled. Stay in His field.

The Only One Who Can Satisfy Your Soul

The Lord of the harvest is the only one who can provide for your needs and satisfy your soul. And you can know that because God not only shelters the hurting under His wings, God showers the hurting with His grace in ways you can’t fathom.

See Ruth hauling up 30 to 50 pounds of grain and leftover lunch and see yourself and hear the promise of God to you. Philippians chapter four, verse 19, “God will supply every need of yours according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus. Hear this good news, God has said, and his loving, merciful, good kindness toward all who trust in Him goes out of the way to work extravagantly on your behalf. That’s good news.
