Are you satisfied with your life?

The fact is we have all been created by God to do His will and glorify His Name, whether you realise it or not that is actually why and what you were born for

Well! what a summer...or should that be 'what summer?' the weather hasn't been exactly what we would expect for this time of year (in the UK) or at least what we would hope for. But then that's the Great British weather for you. It's a bit like life really, in that it's not always what we expect or would hope for. As youngsters we often dream of what we will be when we grow up, and for the lucky few they may achieve in some measure their dreams, but for the majority it just doesn't turn out the way they would have hoped, and for those people either they make the best of their lot or they just give up and lose all hope. The problem is very few people realise why and what they were created for and try their very best to get on with life doing it their way, believing that they don't need anyone to help and certainly don't want anyone telling them how they should live their lives. After all, they say ‘it's my life and no-one is going to tell me how to live it, I'll do what I want.’ They certainly don't think that they need God, especially if they don't believe in Him. These are generally the people who when something goes wrong in their lives the first thing they do is blame God, which when you think about it is contradictory and pretty daft, but it enables them to blame anyone but themselves. 

The Bible is quite clear about the state of mankind, it says in Romans 3:23 ‘For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God’, this excludes nobody. In other words we all get it wrong. The fact is we have all been created by God to do His will and glorify His Name, whether you realise it or not that is actually why and what you were born for.  This is why for many people no matter how successful they are, there is still an emptiness inside them that can't be filled with money, no matter how much they have or material things. God is the only one who can truly satisfy and make us feel whole. So how can we get this satisfaction and wholeness? Well the bible tells us how, in the following scriptures:

God's Love - Romans 5:8 ‘But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners Christ died for us’.

God's Remedy - Romans 6:23 ‘For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord’.

God's Promise - Romans 10:9 ‘If you confess with your mouth. ‘Jesus is Lord’, and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved’.

Our response - 1 John 1:9 ‘If we confess our sins, (all the things we've done wrong), He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness’.

The Outcome - John 1:12 ‘Yet to all who receive Him, (Jesus) to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God’.

Why not give God a chance? What do you have to lose? Actually nothing, but you have everything to gain because God's promise is that He will provide all your needs whether spiritual or physical. Philippians 4:19 says ‘And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus’.
