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.

Christian devotionals are "a dime a dozen" these days. Many of these books are nothing more than warmed over self-help guides that prop up self-esteem and pulverize biblical authority. Like a tasty bowl of sugary cereal, they promise nutrition, but in the final analysis, they neglect the truth and leave readers starving.John Piper's devotional, The Satisfied Soul takes a different path. In typical fashion, Piper offers readers 120 daily...

Dr. John Piper has a way of drawing me towards the realization that Christ is everything. His materials and sermons have impacted greatly and it is true of his newest devotional The Satisfied Soul. This work is the collection of three previous works: Pierced by the Word, Life as a Vapor, and A Godward Heart.By combining these works into a devotional reading Dr. Piper has written a wonderful book to challenge the reader each day of the 120 day...

Great wisdom from John Piper. I have always liked his teaching but it has always been tough to read because it was so much at one time. Breaking down John Piper's teaching to digestible bits of wisdom to be consumed on a daily basis is great. I would suggest this as a devotional for anyone looking to dive go deeper in their relationship with God.

I have to admit, I really like to read John Piper material. This one was relly good, helped me focus on daily reading. Sometimes, I would get busy and forget but then I would do several days reading, which felt like almost I was taking a class in Seminary etc. Even though the readings are daily, they do flow very nicely, so you could actually just keep going.I was excited to read and excited to learn and grow in my faith and become more...
