Are you satisfied in God alone?

Yesterday in Sunday school we watched part two of the John Piper Blazing Center DVD. If you have never heard of John Piper I'd recommend you check out his web site.

The main point of yesterday's message was: God is most glorified in us, when we are most satisfied in Him.

The more we find all we need in Him and in Him alone, the more glory goes to God!

What things do we try to find satisfaction in?

* Relationships
* Work
* Looks
* Power
* Ego
* Food
* Acceptance/Praise from others
* Marital Status

God wants us to be satisfied in Him alone. When we are not looking for those things listed above(I am sure I could add a lot more to that list) to satisfied, God can not shine through us. When we are finding ultimate satisfaction in Him our lives will be an overflow of what He gives us, thus He will receive all the glory!
