The bible tells us that we were made for God, and when we refuse to give Him His rightful place in our lives then things go wrong and our lives become distorted.
Quoting from a letter written to one of the Late Billy Graham’s book.
I have discovered that often people who seemingly have everything in terms of fame and fortunate believe that somehow they will eventually find happiness by pursuing those things even more. But it’s a dead end road, for lasting happiness and peace can only come from God.
King Solomon discovered. During his reign, Israel had peace and was very wealthy. Solomon could have anything money can buy, and in search for happiness he tried everything imaginable- wealth, sex, power, pleasure, alcohol, even religion.
“I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure! (Ecc 2:10) But what was the result of Solomon’s search? Yet when i surveyed all that my hand had done and i had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind” (Ecc 2:11). Finally he realized that lasting happiness and meaning in life could only be found in God.
These things should be warnings to us, to be sure that we do not seek to fill the emptiness in our lives through things that can never satisfy our hearts only God can do that and He will if we will open our hearts to Jesus Christ.
Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
This has been the experience of Christians throughout the ages, and it can be your experience as well as you open your heart and invite Jesus Christ into your life.
When i read this letter, I got some flashes about celebrities who lost their way falling to divorce, drugs, and death. I don’t need to start mentioning names but we all read the news updates online.
Prophet Isaiah declared centuries ago, “Why spend your labour on what does not satisfy”?
