Got Fulfillment?

Rom 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

One of the most thought provoking and frustrating questions I have ever pondered on is this:  “What is God’s will for my life?”  Here is another similar question that is equally frustrating: “Why is my purpose in life?”  Take a minute to ask yourself those questions………………………………………………………………………

……………….ok, now that you have thought about it, think about it some more.  While I am not trying to bring frustration in your life, I do want to point out that we all have a purpose with God.

Here is the same question that is worded as a statement with a hint of encouragement, “God made you to do something that only you can accomplish!”  I believe with all of my heart that Satan does not want us to think about those statements.  The reason for that is, those statements provoke us to do something for Christ!  I believe that God has created amusement and entertainment for us to enjoy, but our society has lived for the entertainment rather than our true purpose for which we are created.  I love football!  I love watching my team (Chicago Bears) play and win!  I hate seeing them get injured and watching the rest of the season go down the drain.  One thing I don’t do is skip church to watch my favorite team play.  Why?  Because that is to go against God’s purpose for my life.

What purpose did God create you for?  Are you fulfilling that purpose?  True satisfaction comes and true fulfillment comes when you do what God has for you.  Are you lacking a little satisfaction?  Need some fulfillment in life?  Find out what God has for you in and you will experience happiness and joy like you never could imagine!

Satisfaction is Coming

 

Psa 91:14  Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

Psa 91:15  He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

Psa 91:16  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

 

 

    Do you know who else knows of God’s coming answer to your need?  The answer is your adversary, the devil.  He knows that God blesses faith and blesses where you set your love.  This is one of the big reasons why the devil uses fear to get you to jump and make a hasty decision.  He knows that you are protected in God, but also realizes that most humans, especially christians, suffer with a lack of faith.  He then does his best to scare us in to acting prematurely by causing us to act on fear instead of acting on faith.   

     I will deliver him, and honour him.  This is a definitive statement.  It means that it will definitely happen!  God did not say might, maybe, or I’ll try.  He said I will deliver him and honour him.  That him is you if you set your love on him. 

God does not stop there.  He goes on to say that He will satisfy you.  Most addicts in this world, are searching for satisfaction.  The sad thing is that they are looking in the wrong places.  I have also noticed that most addicts are pretty determined people.  They get so determined and consumed with getting satisfaction, that they often sacrifice the things that are the most important to them.  Moms, dads, husbands, wives, children, grandchildren, jobs, homes, friends, and God are the ones who suffer and endure with that addict the most.  I have noticed that the ones who suffer the most do so because they don’t give up on them and  they see what God sees, a loved one who needs true satisfaction, and this only comes through Jesus.

      Let me ask you a question; has there been a drought of satisfaction in your life?  The world thinks that things, money, fame, programs, and logic will solve your need.  They think that because of their unsaved condition.  They don’t understand spiritual things because they have the Holy Spirit to understand the spiritual.  If you are not saved, make today the day of Salvation.  If you do, you will start down the only path that leads to satisfaction.  

 

-You have the keys to the secret place!!
