It’s October, where did June go? I’m 52, where did 35 go? Life seems to be an illusive thing, something that can be hard to hold on to as it moves so quickly. But God tells us how we can find it.
“For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.” Proverbs 8:35
Life exists and moves in God. He is the giver of life and He is the sustainer of life, without Him there is no life. Life today and life tomorrow can only be found in Him.
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” Psalm 16:11
We do not only find eternal life in Him, we find the joy of life today in Him. This life is found by following after righteousness and seeking mercy in Him.
“He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.” Proverbs 21:21
In this life that we have been given, the true joy comes by giving our life to Him in service to others. That is where we find life !!
“He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” Matthew 10:39
The true joy of living comes not from seeking after the things of this world, all of that will fade away; but in Jesus we find a life full of joy !!!
“Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.” Acts 2:28
