Running 

Ecclesiastes 6:12

12For who knows what is good for a person in life, during the few and meaningless days they pass through like a shadow? Who can tell them what will happen under the sun after they are gone? 

RunningRunning from Christ since an early age, a man found financial success in his insurance business. But, that all changed one day when his daughter was rushed to the ER. “One day my daughter got really really sick. We took her to the hospital and spent eight hours in the ER and it was really difficult. At the end of the day, we were exhausted – but she was OK,” he said.  He came home filled with gratitude that he could take his little girl home. Remembering wisdom his mother used to share with him to always thank God, he went outside and expressed his gratitude to God over and over again for an hour. Little did he know in that moment how God would radically change him! For years, his brother and over 1,000 other people had been praying for his salvation. Those prayers were about to be answered. The Bible took on new meaning for him. He understood what it said and found deep comfort in its words. He lost a few friends who didn’t understand, but he thinks that might have been for the best.

One person may claim that he will be satisfied if he only has a million dollars in his bank. Yet, billionaires are living proofs that there’s no satisfaction with wealth. Sport’s champions can attest that they are not satisfied with just one trophy. Life on earth is designed for temporal and limited satisfaction. It is spiritual awakening to realize and desire for eternal and unlimited contentment that the Lord offers in His eternal heaven. It says in Romans 6:23, 23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. The real meaning of eternal life can be known in a very personal way if we let Christ prevails in us as our Lord. When relationship with Christ becomes intimate, we can have partial sense of heaven life, seek to be satisfied not with temporal things but desire to be with God forever.

Lord Jesus, help me submit to Your will always.
