Life To The Fullest

‘A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work. This too, I see, is from the hand of God, for without Him, who can eat or find enjoyment?’ Ecclesiastes 2:24-25 (NIV).

Solomon is not suggesting that we make life a big, irresponsible party. Instead, he is encouraging us to take pleasure in what we’re doing right now and to enjoy life to the fullest because each day comes as a gift from God’s hand. We must be fully present in the now, making the most of each opportunity we have, because God ordains how long or brief our life will be. He alone knows the length of our days (Job 14:5).

True enjoyment in life comes only as we follow God’s guidelines for living. Without Him, satisfaction is a lost search (Isaiah 53:11). Those who really know how to live life to the full are the ones who take life each day as a gift from God, thanking Him for it and serving Him in it. Those without God will have no relief from toil and no direction to guide them through life’s complications.

It is God who gives our life on this earth pleasure and purpose. He must be the center of our life if we are to enjoy all things to the full.

Prayer:

‘Dear Jesus, show me what I need to release so that I can draw closer to you. I want to experience each day of my life to the full and find pleasure in all that you have given to me. Thank you for all your blessings to me.’

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

AMEN!

Final Thoughts:

Where is God in our life? At the center or on the peripheral? The closer we are to our Heavenly Father, the more intimately He is involved in our lives, determines the extent to which we will enjoy life to the full.

What do we need to release so that His life can become more intertwined with ours? So that our life is totally caught up in Christ? What is God asking us to let go of so that we might hold more firmly to Him?

Be Greatly Blessed!
