We all want just a little bit more... more money, more time, more beauty, a bigger house, a fancier car. The more we get, the more we want, and we never find satisfaction. If we can’t find satisfaction (the gratification of desires), maybe the problem really lies with our desires. In Ecclesiastes, the author tried to find satisfaction by filling his life with the best of many different things but found them all to be “meaningless.” Yet Paul tells us in the book of Philippians that he found the secret to contentment: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
In this message, Stuart explains how desire and satisfaction are connected and guides us to the place where we, like Paul, can find contentment. With teaching from Philippians 4:10-13, this is the final message in Stuart Briscoe's 5-message series The Search for Answers.
