Are You Satisfied?
Reflections on the book of Hosea
Hosea 13:6 "When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were
satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot ME"
This is a question I believe is very appropriate for believers, but
particularly for leaders, so let us ask ourselves, are you satisfied? It is
amazing how GOD correlates being satisfied with an arrogance or a pride that
soon forgets about HIM or in other words, eyes that are no longer centered on
HIM. The leaders during this time started to forget about the purpose, or they
became satisfied with their position, status, or accomplishments with GOD. Are
you satisfied with where you are right now? With what you have accomplished
right now? Ok, few people heard you preach, teach, call you a Pastor, Prophet,
Teacher, Apostle, mighty man of GOD or whatever name...but is that it? Are you
satisfied? The LORD said I will fill you with living water, which is a well
that never runs dry. Is your well dry? Do you find yourself going through the
motion now with reading, praying, church, worshipping, fellowshipping, marriage,
or just the things GOD calls you to do? Are you satisfied? Does the GOD you
serve have a stopping point? Are you bored with JESUS? Have you reached your
full potential? Have you out grown GOD? Have you found the end to the ONE who
has no ending? Is your race completed? Have you reached your cap on souls
being saved? Have you lost focus on the eternal purpose for your life? The
harvest is plenty, but the laborers are few..why...because many become
satisfied. So today as we fast in the book of Hosea, reflect on yourself, your
walk with GOD, your purpose, every area in your life...are you satisfied?
