this is what the Lord tells us

The world has seen great examples to learn from and one of them is King Solomon.



King Solomon was immensely blessed by the Lord in wisdom and wealth, however at a particular point in his life, Solomon chose to chop off his roots,

when he alienated himself from God, Who was the source of all the blessings in his life.



What followed after can be clearly seen in the book of Ecclesiastes where Solomon sees all as vanity.



" Then I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly;
For what can the man do who succeeds the king?
Only what he has already done." Ecclesiastes 2:12 (NKJV)



What is this vanity? Did Jesus ever try to explain this to us?



In John chapter 15, this is what the Lord tells us....



I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing." John 15 :5 (NKJV)



Solomon bore much fruit when he was connected to the Lord and without the Lord he experienced vanity.



Christ called us the salt of the earth, and made us know that taste abides in this world through us, and He also said....



"Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another." Mark 9:50 (NKJV)



When we lose our taste which comes from God, we are no good and will be thrown out to be trodden under foot by men.



Dear One's, if we are experiencing vanity in our life, if we are experiencing loneliness, its just because of the absence of God's presence.



As the presence of light removes the darkness, so the presence of God in our life will remove all our fear, anxiety, worry and hopelessness.



Even if we have much or little wealth, let's not set our hearts to it, let's always be connected to the vine, let's always have the salt in ourselves.



God has promised us eternal joy and peace, yet in Him alone, for without Him all if truly vanity.





God Bless,

Abraham
