“Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher; “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” What profit has
a man from all his labor in which he toils under the sun? Eccl1:2-3
Life outside of God is nothing. In him, we live, move and have our being. In him, all things
consist. We are made for him, so also every other creature to bring Him glory. Is your life
bringing God glory or grieving him day after day?
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and
invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created
through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him, all things consist.
There is nothing we have that we have not received – even the breath in our nostrils. Our very life is God. Consequently, our lives must be lived for God’s glory. Although God gave every man the freedom of choice, a wise man will always turn to him, who has the compass of his life to receive direction for life.
Men have neglected God, the fountain of living water and hewed for themselves broken cisterns that can hold no water. They pursue emptiness in the name of mammon, and you know, they will never be satisfied. All of man’s labour outside God is for him to eat, drink and be merry-serving his belly. And no matter how much money he has, he still wants more. There is no satisfaction outside God.
The labour of fools wearies them, for they do not even know how to go to the city!
Embrace the one who Himself is the WAY, and he will lead you to life. He also said seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. Everything that you can pursue, God can give to you if you surrender all to Him. The whole duty of man is to fear God and keep His commandments. Ecclesiastes 12:13
Will you give him control over your life?
I implore you to do so, and you will have rest for your soul.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5
