The Unsatisfied, And The Restless Can Find True Peace In GOD

The Unsatisfied the Restless can find True Peace in God
The human heart can never be satisfied without GOD. Our restless hearts never find true peace until they rest in GOD.

1) Men are unsatisfied with temporal things

Unsatisfied with accumulation of wealth
Ecc 5:10 He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.

Unsatisfied with the pursuit of worldly objects
Isa 55:2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

The accumulation of wealth and worldly objects or the accomplishment of getting them will not give yous a satisfied heart, only God can give that to you.

2) The man with the restless heart is the result of the sinful heart.
Ecc 2:22 For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?
Ecc 2:23 For all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity.
Isa 57:20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.

There is no peace for the worldly or the wicked man
2Ch 15:5 And in those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in, but great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries.

Isa 59:8 The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.

Rom 3:17 And the way of peace have they not known:

True peace is found and promised in GOD
Rom 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Gal 1:3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
Rom 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

3) Rest of the heart is found in GOD only

The divine presence of GOD gives us spiritual rest
Exo 33:14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.
Heb 4:3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
Heb 4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

So in conclusion to be satisfied and to have a heart that is filled with peace, and to have spiritual rest we first need to repent of our worldly and sinful ways, and turn to the ways of GOD, as is stated in Acts 2:37-39
Act 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Act 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
Have a blessed day in the LORD
