What is it that will make you happy? What do you want more than anything else? All of us think about this, whether consciously or subconsciously, and even if we are too scared to admit it to ourselves or to anyone else, deep in our hearts we all say, “If I could only have ___, then I would be happy.” The reason for this is that that is the way God designed you. We are all creatures in pursuit of satisfaction – satisfaction that can ultimately only be found in God even if we are pursuing something else. And, when we try to find satisfaction in anything else, our pursuit will fail, leaving us empty, discouraged, and unsatisfied. You see, we were designed by God and for God, and until we rest in Him we will never find that perfect rest that all of us are so desperately looking for.

I’m Jason Dees, encouraging you to think through it.
