The possessions that we fill our lives with, family & friends that we constantly surround ourselves and the recognition that we continuously seek does not make us happy. We can have wealth, friends, fame anything we want and be the most miserable person on earth if we don’t have Jesus. I think the message version of the Bible says it the best Psalm 94:16-19,
Who stood up for me against the wicked? Who took my side against evil workers? If God hadn’t been there for me, I never would have made it. The minute I said, ”I’m slipping, I’m falling.” your love, God, took hold and held me fast. When I was upset and beside myself, you calmed me down and cheered me up.
There is nothing in this world like the love, joy, peace, and comfort that God gives us just at the right time. Jesus is all we need!
