25 Jul A Beautiful Life
All around the world people want meaning in their lives. They pursue different things and support various causes to feel that their lives matter. But the world is in pursuit of something that ultimately comes up empty. The world does not have the answer to the meaning of life.
What does God want for you? He wants you to live a beautiful life!
Romans 12:2 (The Passion Translation)
Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.
A beautiful life is not found in the culture of the world. Once you’ve had an encounter with Jesus Christ, the Son of God, you can start to live a beautiful life. God’s will for you is good, pleasing and perfect but the enemy’s plan is to bring you into confusion about your purpose. He wants to keep you miserable through comparison with others and trap you in his counterfeit.
God has a plan and a purpose for you life. The big picture is the Kingdom of God. Whatever you do for a living and whatever talents and spiritual gifts you have – it should be tied in with building God’s kingdom. That is where true fulfillment lies.
Stop looking to the way the world seeks fulfillment and find your purpose in a truly meaningful relationship with your Creator, your Saviour and your God.
Let’s pray: Father God, thank you that you have a beautiful life available for me. Please come and lead me on the path that leads to a full and meaningful life. I look to you as the source of my significance. In Jesus’ name, amen.
