True Contentment Comes Only From God

When You Trust In God To Carry You; You Can Sit Back and Enjoy the View

“Nothing can content the desires of the soul but God himself: other things may busy us, and vex us, but cannot satisfy us:  ‘All is vanity and vexation of spirit.’  If a man would make a critical search as Solomon did; he set himself to see what pleasures and honours would do to content the heart of man, and what riches and learning would do; he had a large estate and heart, and so was in a capacity to try all things, to see if he could extract satisfaction from them; yet he concludes, ‘All is vanity and vexation of spirit.’  Whosoever will follow this course, will come home with disappointment.  But in this portion there is contentment:  we need no more but God, and there is nothing besides him worth our desire.”  –Thomas Manton “Psalm 119, Vol. 1”  p. 564
