The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly (John 10:10)
Any time that a man or people are not satisfied; there is confusion, confrontation, war and all manner of evil vices. How do you find tune satisfaction or what really satisfy?
In Luke 19:1-10, there was a story of a man called Zacheaus, he was highly positioned in the society, he had riches, men servants and maid servants, and he had great influence among the people and within the government.
One day he heard that Jesus was passing by the Bible quoted “and he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature so he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him for He was going to pass that way, and when Jesus came to the place. He looked up and saw him and said to him “Zacheaus today I must stay at your house” Luke 19:3-5.
To find true satisfaction in life you must acknowledge and act on the prompting of God. You must be willing to diligently seek Jesus, willing to hear instruction from him and act on the voice of the Master.
In the bid to do you must be ready to defile all obstacles, hearken to the voice of the Holy Spirit Zacheaus could not see Jesus because of the crowed, but he defiled this circumstantial hindrance by climbing on the tree to have a gaze on the Lord his maker. He defiled natural hindrance because he was short stature because there was a prompting in his spirit mind that it is Jesus he needs to fill the vacuum in his life. As you read this message, it is my prayer that you will hear the voice of the Lord your maker so strong and distinct that will cause you to ignore circumstantial, natural or ethical profile in order to see Jesus.
Jesus knows your dearest need that will bring all round satisfaction to you but you must be willing and ready to hearken to the instruction of Jesus. In john 2:5, Mary told the people that came to her asking for help, that I can’t help meet your need, but to Jesus, He alone can satisfy you “Hiss mother said to the servants whatever He says to you do it”
The voice of Jesus is authoritative, caries power. He has always given you divine invitation to richly dwell in you.
“Behold I stand at the door and knock, if any one hears my voice and opens the door I will come into him and dine with him and he with me” (Rev 3:20)
You need to receive and respond to Jesus divine invitation joyfully, acknowledge divine invitation is totally surrendering to God as your personal Lord and Saviour.
This brings you to journey of living a changed life to becoming the man or the woman He has ordained you to be.
Ten Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord look, Lord I give half of my goods to the poor and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation I restore fourfold.
As you begin to live to please God not pleasing yourself and becoming a blessing to others, this change life of genuine salvation definitely will bring you satisfaction.
Jesus declaration to you this day is that salvation has come to your house. I pray that your salvation must be accompanied with change.
When Jesus comes to a life there is great rejoicing. I pray that from this day henceforth, joy unspeakable and the peace that transcend all human understanding will become your portion.
Zacchaeus realised that only Jesus could satisfy, so he did not find it difficult to let go all that could hinder him not to have the fullness of Jesus Christ and his abundant life.
You too can take such step like Zacchaeus you can’t regret giving Christ your all. You can’t lose but you will rather gain.
 Lord give me the power to remove every barrier that is standing between me having deep fellowship and communion with you.
 Lord satisfy my hunger and thirst for righteous, purity, power, prosperity and all other blessings.
