“But godliness with contentment is great gain.” 1 Timothy 6:6
When God is first in your life, you will be contented with your life. But when God is not presiding your life, then you will never be satisfied with your life. You will always want to find meaning to who you are and so you will search from anywhere and everywhere, all in bide to find meaning to your life.
To be with God is not a barrier and to serve Him throughout your life is not a force; it is you who is to decide, who is to ensure that you are willing to follow Him. There is no how God will force you to be with Him. He is the one who created you. So He wants you to always be with Him.
Do not think that God is going to be angry with you for deserting Him. Rather, He will do everything to bring you back to Him. Of course, He won’t use force in doing this, but by His never-ending love and affection for you, I bet you won’t hesitate to return to your maker.
Listen, your life is full and happy with God. You will always find contentment when you are fully grounded in Him. Do not look anywhere and anymore. Stay with God! Be ready to live your life solely for Him and you will see that your life will be forever contented.
