Have you ever bought something to eat, wear or own and looked at the tag on it that said, “100% Guaranteed?” That always makes me laugh. I know they are talking about satisfaction with the product being sold, but can anything you buy truly guarantee 100% satisfaction in life? Sadly, many people think that if they can get to some level of success, wealth, fame or relationship, then they can experience satisfaction. But those few people who do get exactly what they want are always shocked to discover that they still are not satisfied. That is because we weren’t designed to be satisfied by the things of this world. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “God has placed eternity in the human heart.” He planted a longing for eternal stuff that really matters. It is God who is eternal. Nothing that is not eternal can fill eternal longing. Only God can offer 100% satisfaction guaranteed, for only He can quench the deepest thirst within our souls. The only place our hearts will ever find satisfaction is in relationship with God. Once you get that relationship right, then that is when life begins to change. That is where you find true contentment and satisfaction and peace. It is 100% guaranteed.
