The Light Daily Devotional – The Sense of Fulfillment
Focus: The Sense of Fulfillment
The word for today
No man can have a sense of fulfillment without finding God in whatever he does. A man is not fortunate until he finds the contentment that God gives in everything!
“Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.” 1 Timothy 6:6 NKJV
One of those things God, in His infinite mercy, gives to His people is contentment. It is a virtue of God in the life of a man that delivers him from living a miserable life. Some people have money and pleasurable possession of life, but can neither sleep properly nor have rest of mind. Several men keep acquiring wealth but continue to run as if they have nothing.
The preacher observed nature and said: “All the rivers run into the sea, Yet the sea is not full” (Eccl 1:7a). The implication is that whatever a man seeks in life apart from God will never be enough. No man will ever think or believe the fact that what he has is enough until he lives with the orientation that having God and obeying Him is having everything.
In life, you cannot have everything but you can find contentment which brings about fulfillment in every facet of life in God alone. Honour God with your existence and strive to fulfill His purpose in everything you do.
+ What do you seek in life?
Prayer: Lord! Help me to always seek and find you in everything in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: You will be fulfilled if you always seek and find God in everything!
Have a Graceful Tuesday!
