Chasing After the Wind

“The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens.” (Jeremiah 10:11)

Imagine a life spent chasing after the wind. Truly, such a pursuit would be vain: a meaningless goal with the sole destiny of futility. A person devoting himself to such a cause would be considered a fool!

Yes—any sane person would agree that to chase after the wind would be a waste of time to the ultimate degree. Yet those same sane people who would reject an opportunity to dedicate themselves to an obviously unworthy cause have done the very thing which they would adamantly oppose! In giving their lives to the things of the world and the desires of the flesh, they have chosen, in essence, to chase the wind.

Let us examine ourselves and see if we have not established ourselves on the same shaky foundation. A careful look at where we invest our time, talents, finances and other resources will reveal whether or not we, too, have surrendered our own lives to futility. Often, as we evaluate our pursuits, we will find that we have walked through life focused upon mere illusions that pass with time.

The only worthy cause in life is to live for the Maker of the heavens and the earth. It is He who said, “The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens.” In other words—He alone is ever-living and everlasting, for He alone made the heavens and the earth. He alone has authority over all creation; our lives belong to Him. To invest any aspect of our being in another “god” is as meaningless as chasing after the wind—for in the end, such “gods” will return to the dust from which they came!

From the simplest to the most complex of decisions in life, we need to consider if the final destination of our investment will be eternal. We must ask ourselves if the person, place or thing to which we have committed ourselves is the Maker of Heaven and Earth—the only One with the power to save us. If our answer to such a question is “no,” then surely we are spending our lives chasing after the wind.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
