Life God’s gift to you to enjoy and be inspired and empowered to walk in your divine purpose. God’s love for creation and all that is in is the very reason why we are able to breathe and enjoy life. Society may tell you what to do and how to do things with your life but ultimately God the designer has the final say about everything that concerns you. We are encouraged to seek after earthy treasures which embody education, homes, luxurious cars, fine jewelry, fancy vacations and wealth. Every one wants to obtain a celebrity status – this stretches from the pastors, to the doctors, to the lawyers, the politicians, the janitors and even the child that can barely say ‘dada’. Now there is absolutely nothing wrong with being wealthy or being a celebrity but something is wrong with us when we do everything else but God. Many times, we work so hard to achieve everything in this life but the most important thing that we need is often neglected and forgotten. That special thing is Salvation and a relationship with God. Communing with God should always be at the pinnacle of our daily plans and He must never be taken for granted.
God has the key to your life and He decides when you leave the earth and how long you will stay. Therefore, your life is not your own – you were created to worship and praise God. God loves us even when we cannot love ourselves yet we have a tendency to do whatever we feel like doing with our bodies. Allowing things into our bodies like drugs and alcoholic is destroying what God created to give Him glory. Likewise, being promiscuous and jumping from bed to bed is a defilement of your temple that was meant to house the Holy Spirit of God. You only have one life, don’t allow others to abuse it and misuse it. Take pride in yourself and live a life that is pleasing and acceptable to God. After all, you were bought at a price when God gave up His Son Jesus Christ as a living sacrifice so that you may inherit eternal life. You cannot and will not inherit that life if you allow yourself to live in sin; it will only give room for Satan and his agents to come in and toss you around and beat you down. God wants you to have the abundant life right here on the earth, the bible says in 3 John 2, “I wish above all things that you prosper and be in good health.” Not only does God want you to have the best of everything but He also wants you to be prosperous in your health and soul.
It is understandable that your desire is to have a happy life but too many are seeking for it in all the wrong places. Being in the wrong place produces mental illness, drug addiction, despair, suicide, alcoholism, self-pity, and other distractions. Including God in your life is an essential key to true happiness. God’s love for us is indescribable and incredible; He gives us His blessed assurance in His words. His Son Jesus wants us to be filled with joy and not sadness; John 15: 11 says, “My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” If you are concerned about what to eat or what to wear God promise to provide for you and protect in all things; not only that but His provision is always the best and do you good and not harm. Jeremiah 29, 11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” God’s desires to bless you with your heart’s desire according to His will for your life. Stop trying to figure things out on your own and let God do what He does best – take care of you. In the presence of the Lord there is fullness of joy, happiness, peace and contentment don’t waste your life away instead create a legacy to for others to emulate. You are a good and perfect gift that was created by God to do amazing things so take nothing for granted but be grateful for everything.
