Exclusive Benefits Of The Believer's Relationship With God Through Christ: #5 Who Satisfies Your Mouth With Good.

"Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all his benefits:...Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; So that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's."
(Psalm 103:2‭, ‬5 KJV)

One of the characteristics of a man of faith is that he is totally convinced that God is good. Once that is established in your heart, faith flows naturally. Many people struggle to believe that God is good and yet He is. The knowledge of God's goodness is foundational to our Christian faith.

God satisfies your mouth with good. Good food is a gift from God. A good wife comes from God. A good car is a blessing from God. But the benefit is not only receiving good from God, it is the ability to enjoy good and be satisfied with good.

There are people who may have access to good food, a good wife, and good cars but cannot enjoy and be satisfied with them. Their desires are like a bottomless pit; never can they be fulfilled. But God gives you satisfaction even in work.

And that "good" can be a good word. The bible says, in Proverbs 12:25, "Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad."

In Jeremiah the Bible also says, "For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place." (Jeremiah 29:10).

When God fills your mouth with good food and good word, your youth will be renewed like that of an eagle. Renewal of youth is a blessing found exclusively in God. We have heard how Caleb was strong enough to go to war at eighty five years. He felt the same strength he felt when He was forty. He experienced renewal of youth because of His relationship with God.

"I was forty years old when Moses, the servant of the Lord, sent me from Kadesh-barnea to explore the land of Canaan. I returned and gave an honest report,"

“Now, as you can see, the Lord has kept me alive and well as he promised for all these forty-five years since Moses made this promise—even while Israel wandered in the wilderness. Today I am eighty-five years old.

I am as strong now as I was when Moses sent me on that journey, and I can still travel and fight as well as I could then." (Joshua 14:7‭, ‬10‭-‬11 NLT).

Again, Moses the servant of God was one hundred and twenty years old yet his natural force was not abated neither was his eyes dim.

"Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eyesight never became poor, and he never lost his physical strength." (Deuteronomy 34:7 GW). If this could happen in the Old Testament,how much more should we experience as New Testament believers?

God satisfies my life with good so that my youth is renewed like that of the eagle.
