Contentment #8 — Contented Praise

Because your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips will praise you. So I will bless you as long as I live. I will lift up my hands to your name. My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth offers praises with joyful lips. Psalm 63:3-5

O Glorious God, though the whole realm of nature were mine, I could not be satisfied. Even if I were the ruler of all the kingdoms of the earth, I could not be satisfied. For you alone satisfy. But I would be content with anything. For the generous, extravagant outpouring of your joyful goodness into my life is better than life itself. With me you have earned a reputation for being holy. You have filled my heart with your infinite, unexcelled and irreplaceable worth. I want no more than the fellowship of Heaven that is mine as I have Jesus as my saving Lord. I want no more than the love of Heaven that is mine as the Holy Spirit pours out the love of God in my heart. I want no more than the promise of your eternally showing me the surpassing riches of your grace. I want no more than being filled with all the fullness of God. With the assurance of your wise and powerful presence, I can be relaxed and comfortable and joyful and grateful in every circumstance. With the experience of your gracious providence, my heart is at rest as I perceive you in all your work for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
