Begin each day by saying the Lord’s prayer. When you come to the words, “Give us this day our daily bread”, remember that Jesus told us to ask only for the needs of one day. Most of our worries come from being too concerned about the future.
When Christ was in Galilee He gave himself entirely to the work there. He didn’t wear himself out by worrying about what would happen to Him in Jerusalem when it was time for Him to go there. He knew that when future trials came, He could meet them with the Father’s help.
In the life of Christ we find our example. Trust in God. Each morning ask Him to guide you in the decisions you must make that day. Every hour take time to send a minute prayer to Heaven. You may have fell like a deep sea diver who is suffocating for want of air.
The Bible tells us that e 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. I have discovered that often people who seemingly have everything in terms of fame and fortune believe that they will eventually find happiness by pursuing those things even more. But its 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 and 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 failed to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
In verse 11, Solomon finally 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 an He will if we will open our hearts to Jesus.
NB: Why spend your labour on what does not satisfy
– Prophet Isaiah
