Man must realize that he was created and
chosen by God for Himself and that God is
indispensable in his life. When some feel an
empty space in their lives despite their worldly
possession and achievements, they begin to ask:
What could be missing and
their lives that creates and leaves such a great
void within them?
they are really looking for is something to fill a void that is in each
person, a vacuum that is put there by God and can be filled only by Him.
God's way of making sure each person—even those who don't believe in Him—keep
searching until they find Him and the purpose of life He has for them.
What are the things
God alone could provide?
Psalms 4: 6-8 states:
"There are many who pray:
'Give us more blessing, O Lord. Look on us with kindness!'
But the joy that you have given is more than they will ever have with
all their grain and wine. When I lie down, I go to
sleep in peace; you alone, O lord, keep me perfectly
safe." (Today English Version)
Man must come to
realize and understand that the Lord God Almighty is indispensable in
his life. God is not
only the best provider of material blessings but He is the only source of
lasting joy, peace, and perfect safety.
does the Bible depict the unequalled role of God in our existence?
The bible tell us how significant God
is in our lives. A great part of it is described in the following
verses of the Bible.
- He is our creator . .
:"I am the Lord, your savior; I am
the one who created you. I am the Lord, the Creator of all things. I
alone stretch out the heavens; when I made the earth, no one helped
me." ( TEV)
- He gives us life . .
The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath
of the Almighty hath given me life. (KJV)
- In him we move and have our beings . .
For in him we live, and move, and have our
being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also
his offspring. (KJV)
- He saves us from distress . . .
Then they cried out to
the Lord in their trouble, And He saved them out of their
- Riches and Honor come from Him . . .
and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hand is
power and might; in Your hand it is to make great and to give
strength to all. (NKJV)
- He can give us
what we need. . . . . . . Matthew
7. "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find;
knock, and it will be opened to you. 8. "For everyone who asks
receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be
opened. 9. "Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks
for bread, will give him a stone? 10. "Or if he asks for a fish,
will he give him a serpent? 11. "If you then, being evil, know how
to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your
Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! (NKJV)
Man must realize that he was
created and chosen by God for Himself and that God is indispensable in his
life. He needs the Lord in every aspect of his life. He needs the
Lord to live a worthy and fulfilling life.
God is indeed everything in man's
life. Without God in his life, man will continue to feel an inexplicable
emptiness that no amount of earthy possession can feel or satisfy.
