Proverbs 30:15-16 ” There are three things that are never satisfied, four that never say, ‘Enough!’ the grave, the barren womb, land which is never satisfied with water, and fire which never says, ‘Enough!’ “

As Proverbs 27:20 points out, “Death and Destruction are never satisfied.” Habakkuk 2:5 goes even farther in describing Death and Destruction as greedy and never content. You don’t have to look far to see that our broken world is full of both Death and Destruction, but that doesn’t mean we have to live in utter hopelessness and despair. For when we look to Jesus as our source and joy we can be fully satisfied with His love. That’s because when He opens His hands we will be satisfied with good things. (Psalm 104:28) And if we are diligent, our desires will be fully met. (Proverbs 13:4) Unlike Death and Destruction that will never say, “Enough!’ We can confidently say, ‘Yes, In Christ, I am and have enough!’
