Satisfaction in God Alone

Just as Death and Destruction are never satisfied, so human desire is never satisfied 
Proverb 27:20 (NLT) 

What is Death? It is an enemy (1 Cor 15:26)
In God’s original plan, He never intended that human should experience any death.
Death only comes because of sin.
Hence, death is something apart from God.

What is Destruction? It is the work of the devil.
The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10)
Hence, destruction is something apart from God.

The verse above teaches that something apart from God is never satisfied. 
Likewise, human desire, as long as it is apart from God, is never satisfied.
Material possession, fame, ability or even human relationship.
At best, they can only satisfy us temporarily.

What can satisfy us truly and eternally? 
God Himself.
Therefore, let us place our desire in Him alone.
