I recently watched a video that said, "God is most glorified in me, when I am most satisfied in Him." And it hit me. When my satisfaction is put in temporary things, my emotions are scattered. It talked about the path of happiness and the path of God's glory, and how it can be the exact same path. If I am spending time with God, and filling my soul, then He will be glorified through me. If God is being glorified through my actions wherever He has me, then I am in His will too. I realized it's all from the same source... I have not been putting in much effort to become closer with Jesus, and it has been affecting me in all these ways.
God is most glorified in me, when I am most satisfied in Him.
My challenge for myself, and for you reading this, is to become fully satisfied in Jesus, so that he can use us to our fullest potential, glorifying him, and pouring into others around us. I know it's hard to find time in our crazy lives, and we find so many excuses, but let's spend as much time working on the inner part of us, as we do on the outside. Let's examine ourselves, and let God change us from the inside.
I am continuing in this learning process, but I hope something in this can be of some encouragement to you as well!
