SEEK WHAT SATISFIES

SEEK WHAT SATISFIES

“And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.”
1 Corinthians 12:32
An understanding of the times you live in will definitely guide you on what to do, when it should be done, what is important and what is not important. May God give you an understanding of the times we live!

What time is it now? Hosea 10:12 says,
“Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.”
It is time to seek the Lord. Many people have sought prosperity all their lives only to discover at the end that it does not satisfy. Ecclesiastes 5:10-11 says if you love silver, no matter how much of it you acquire, you will never be satisfied. If you are a billionaire, you cannot take more than a regular meal at a time; you will sleep in one room even if your mansion has 100 rooms; you cannot wear more than one dress or a pair of shoes at a time, even if you have a room full of them. In fact Ecclesiastes 5:12 says too much wealth may rob the rich of his sleep. When you get to a certain level of wealth, it becomes a burden. I have visited some very rich people and I felt sorry for them because of the pain they go through in choosing what to take at a meal time, what to wear, etc. Do you know that wealth is transient – it is available today but can vanish tomorrow (Proverbs 23:4-5)? Moreover, many have sought for power, fame and position only to find that they do not satisfy. If you are the president today, tomorrow you will be ex-president. While in school, I desired to have several degrees only to later discover that they do not satisfy. Colossians 3:1-2 says you should stop making material things your focus. What are you seeking? It is time to seek after God. He is the One who truly satisfies.

Memorise:
The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.
Ecclesiastes 5:12

Read:
Ecclesiastes 5:9-12

Bible in one year:
Genesis 16-19

Key point:
Seeking and finding God should be your major goal in life. When this is done, He will help you to set and achieve all your minor goals.

WORKING OUT AN ALTERNATIVE

In this uncommon race that we have enlisted in, if you rest prematurely, or take your eyes off the daystar we are following, you will be distracted.

Thanksgiving to God, especially for gifts and blessings received, is required and expected. God abhors ungrateful people. God expects Christians to give thanks in all circumstances they are confronted with. In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Apostle Paul wrote:
