About The Satisfied Soul

“May these meditations become in your life the living embodiment of God’s Word and penetrate to the deep places of your soul. God has a good work to do there.”   
                                                                                                                             –John Piper
 
ONLY GOD CAN SATISFY YOUR SOUL.
 
Every day, the world takes another step away from God’s truth and into greater moral and spiritual relativism. If your view of life is fed by a steady diet of television news and popular opinion, you’ll find yourself starved, parched, and confused.
 
But there is a way for your soul to be satisfied and at peace during these turbulent times. The answer is to turn those hungers, questions, and desires towards God.
 
These meditations offer a daily serving of God’s Word along with practical insights from beloved pastor and author John Piper. Each reading reorients you to the eternal rather than the popular.  In a world where ephemeral feelings are valued more than firm facts and eternal joys, each selection will awaken you to the truth of who God is—and who you are.
 
These 120 devotional readings celebrate God’s sovereignty in every aspect of our world, from how to feed our soul, the danger of hero worship, and loving our enemies, to suffering, having a passion for purity, and ways we can be a refuge for our children. This collection offers a daily feast of truth and wisdom that places God right where He belongs—at the center of our lives.
 
These meditations originally appeared in John Piper’s Pierced by the Word, Life as a Vapor, and A Godward Heart.

YOU ARE INVITED TO ENJOY THE RAREST OF TREASURES…
 
The world tries to distract our minds. Deaden our hearts. Water down our beliefs. If there are no absolutes, then we can pursue whatever tickles our fancy. We are the captain of our destiny. But, sadly, the result is that we remain hopelessly adrift in a constantly changing sea of confusion.
 
There is a better answer: Rather than numb our soul, we can fully satisfy it. Instead of letting the world squeeze us into its mold, we can be molded into sons and daughters of God. The solution is to feast on God’s Word and drink deep from His river of life. These daily meditations invite us into this central promise about God:
 
You are good and do good;
      Teach me your statutes.
–Psalm 119:68
 
Discover the supremacy of God in every area of your life...and as the only source of a truly satisfied soul.

Seems like there's been several of the more mature leaders of the Christian faith who have assembled some of their work into volumes like this one.  Not a bad thing.  For those who don't know them already it's a great introduction to what the author has spent his life teaching.  For those that are acquainted, these works are like paging through a scrapbook. Either way, they continue to speak. This book draws together a wide range of...

John Piper has always been an inspiration, and I don't remember anyone more clearly enjoying him than a former roommate that I had. Every day, she soaked in devotionals produced by his ministry, Desiring God. And she would often share those devotionals with me or with our coworkers. The Satisfied Soul by John Piper is a book that now delivers daily meditations on God's Word and His Sovereignty (in classic Piper style) in the absence of my...

I really appreciate these daily devotionals from John Piper. They are quick and easy to read yet they are still of sound doctrine and meaty. They cover a variety of topics and are always grounded in scripture. Overall this is a great little devotional book, and not fluffy like most these days seem to be.

    Wow, What a wonderful devotional! I've never read any of John Pipers' devotionals up to this point, but I am now a big fan. This book is a combo of three of his small previous writings. It gives fresh insights into Scriptures that all point to God and His Glorious purposes for mankind. His writing brings forth deep revelations about God. There are a vast array of topics dealing with life covered in this 120 day devotional, never boring....

showing the supremacy of God. Great reminder that only God can satisfy your soul. A word to the readers begins this book and speaks to the importance of not just books, but paragraphs and sentences that can make a difference in a person's life. This is one of those books, Meant to be a companion volume to Piper's other book, Taste and See, featuring short chapters that can be read as a daily devotional. I actually prefer the shorter chapters,...
