Fulfillment in Life
In life, we can often get so lost in chasing after the next best thing. We are in search for a better job, better body, better friendships, and more money. All of which are good things if used in their proper context. However, is a deep longing in the soul of man to be filled, with something that will give us fulfillment. This fulfillment we are all seeking after can only be found in Christ alone. When we chase after things in this life that are temporary, in the end we will always find ourselves empty. When we go through deep waters (trials). These fulfillment’s that we seek after will not be able to deliver us from the circumstances we can’t control.
So, we must make our fulfillment come from God. To make God our fulfillment means to make him our all in all. When we know who Jesus Christ is, we will be able to faithfully carry out the will God has for our life. Our joy should not come from the blessings that God gives us, instead it should come from carrying out the mission God has instilled to us.
Be confident in God
We’ve all been given a certain will assigned to our lives to bring Glory to God. Christ knew that he had a purpose on the earth and that was to die for the sins of the world. It was only at a certain time that this great work could take place. If it were to happen any sooner or later, the time would not have been complete, for the works that needed to take place for Jesus to enter his glory. Furthermore, many times, Jesus tried to be taken away to be killed by the religious leaders, but because God’s work still needed to be done “(His) My time is not yet come” (John 7:6).
How to be confident in God
On various accounts through the gospels, it speaks about Jesus time and “how his hour had not come yet.” The same applies for our lives, there may be a breakthrough you’ve patiently waiting to happen. The only reason it has not come to pass yet, is not because you are not yet ready. But because your hour has not yet come! “There is time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens (Ecclesiastes 3:1). God does not work on our basis to be prepared but works in accordance to our faith. We will never be prepared enough for the things that we will encounter in this life, so we must be willing to pick up our cross, make our confidence in Gods light even when can’t see, have a heartfelt compassion towards others, and hope for the future glory to come.
