What Does It Take To BE Fulfilled?
Fulfilment can be quite tricky. It can elude the intellectual, the rich, and even the successful.
Having the brains, the riches and "making it" in this life does not guarantee that you will experience fulfilment on this world.
Statistics prove that point. Suicide rates are found among the wealthy or those with status in society. Divorce touches even the most solid couple we know. Families can be broken.
And the core reasons for every break down of life, relationships, or career often include dissatisfaction, where one or all parties concerned are unfulfilled in their situation.
Fulfilment Is In God
King Solomon, the wisest person of his time, knew this to be true.
He held the highest position in the land, owned a ridiculous amount of material things, and no one was wiser and more intelligent than he was.
But he found no peace and fulfilment in all these once he drifted away from God.
The best outcomes are achieved when God is involved. If you want a fulfilling life, relationship or career, God has to be in it.
Acts 17:28 says, "For in him we live and move and have our being."
Solomon realised that at the end of a meaningful life that has sense and worth is God in the equation.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."
Man can never find the drive towards fulfilment and actually find it without God in his life. fulfilment.
No matter how hard a person denies the existence of God, He is. Nature, creation can never hide that He is among us.
We find our energy, our breath, our means of existing IN Him. And we find our reason, purpose, and urge to go on living IN Him.
Colossians 1:16 "For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him"
The atheist who can sincerely say he is joyful and satisfied at the end of his life has either learned to totally be in denial or has fully deluded himself of the sad myth that creation can be happy and fulfilled without God.
Romans 1:20 "For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God."
