Sometimes we seek so many things on the outside of us that we forget we are already complete beings. We have everything we need inside of us to produce everything we want. Personal fulfillment starts in us and with us. Scripture says the Lord is my Shepard I shall not want in Psalms 23 verse 1.
Outside things don't fulfill us or bring us wealth, we are the producers of those things. We are creators and go-getters, and the creative spirit directly reflects the power of God inside of us. Honoring God's spirit causes even more creativity and fruitfulness than not acknowledging it.
This scripture really stood out to me yesterday in church:
"if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14)
No matter what it is we're looking for there is nothing that we truly want that will come rightfully or abundantly outside of the will of God, and honoring that will.
In our lives all we have is who we individually are, if who we are has no purpose then we can never be fulfilled in who we are. Good purpose is in God. No matter if you want to be powerful, rich or emulate someone you see on TV, true good only comes in true authenticity. Everything we want boils down to honoring the purpose of our specific creation, by acknowledging and corresponding with the creator on a daily basis.
Without worship the waking up is not complete and if the waking up isn't complete, then the daily life isn't complete. So consider how many days a you go without worshipping, acknowledging, or engaging God, How incomplete you feel, or how useless your days seem. Also, notice when you do put God first and pray to Him how you get revelation and everything seems to line up right.
God is in everything good, and if everything good is what you want for your life, then line it up with His will. Give everything to God and you will always be fulfilled.
