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."


Prioritise Your Relationship With God 

What does it take to Be Fulfilled? Prioritise your relationship with God. All else is temporary. This life is not it for us.

Things and relationships will be lost, achievements will expire or be a thing of the past. We will all pass on into eternity.

In all these things, in all stages of life, God is the One permanent person and possession we will have. So we need to involve Him.

Allow Him to guide and bless us.

Follow His direction. Because He will always have our very best in mind.

Trust His workings because He will always bring out good in every circumstance. Romans 8:28

Be in His Word. Know what you believe. Learn Spiritual Truths you need for life.

Final Thoughts

Wether we see it or not. Wether we understand or not. Our Father is key to a fulfilled life, relationship, and pursuit in this world. We can be successful, certainly. We can create the life we want, we can have the people we want in our lives. But, we can be fulfilled in every ups, and we can remain fulfilled through every lows; because we have God and His Word to create, direct, and sustain that fulfilment within us.
