In today’s society, people searching for something to bring satisfaction to their life’s. We have a build in need for something to satisfy and are searching for what gives us joy, happiness, and fulfillment. We know we need something but it seems to be very elusive and hard to find. We may try to satisfy this desire in many ways. Some people may try, drugs, alcohol, sex… Others bury themselves in work, hobbies, or making money just to name a few. Yes, we can find temporary happiness in things of this earth. But this is only temporary! How many times do we read about the person that seem to have everything life has to offer commit suicide? Think about a movie star that has fame, money, a mansion, servants, and much more. They are not satisfied with their life and decide it better to be dead.
Here’s the question. What is your god or who is your god? If the desires of your heart is for worldly things such as alcohol, money, fame, or sexual desires then these things becomes your God. To find true happiness and contentment can only be found in one place. To find true happiness and contentment, we need to turn to God. When you stop chasing the things of the world and turn to the Lord Jesus, you will find more happiness and contentment than anything in this world can bring you. In Luke 16:13 we find – 13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.”Please today take a look at your life. Are you serving the world or God? Has the world slowly creep back into your life? What’s our number one priority? Is it God or Something else? We need to address any worldly thing that keeps us from putting God first! Matthew 22:37 says “Jesus said unto them Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart all thy soul and with all thy mind.“
So I ask you today who/what is your god? If god is not the top priority in your life, Ask him today to take control of you heart. May God Bless you!
