Today I learn again that what we need most of all is completely satisfied in Jesus.
Whatever it is that we most want, we find in God. If I could reiterate this to myself every day, it would transform my wandering, my striving, and my restless, anxious heart into a satisfied heart who has found her treasure at last.
I preach the gospel to myself over and over again these days. I know that what I most want and actually need is God.
But sometimes I just don't know what I want or need, or I forget!
I think of how David proclaimed in Psalm 27:4, "The one thing I ask of the Lord--the thing I seek most--is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord's perfection and meditating in His temple."
What we most want is the Lord.
