Devotions for Lent–Burp! That was great food.

My spirit is content, as with the richest of foods, and my mouth praises you with joyful lips. (Ps 63:5 NCV)

There are times when God allows a season of holy-discontent in your life.  It’s usually when God wants to stir you up because you’ve become too settled, change your circumstances or move you on to a different place.  I don’t desire such times, but then again, I don’t run from them.

Fortunately, discontent is not the norm, and even at those times, we need to know that God is in control.  The psalmist describes this as feeling like you’ve just eaten a good meal.  You’re no longer hungry but full, fat and content. Burp! Unacceptable in western culture to bulge wind at the dinner table, but in places like Bahrain totally acceptable and a sign to the host that the meal was wonderful.  I’m sure the Lord would settle with a word of praise.
