Are you caught in a trap?

Have you fallen victim to the trap that you need wealth for happiness and fulfillment?
Have you fallen victim to the trap that your family and spouse will provide you happiness and fulfillment?
Have you fallen victim to the trap that your job will provide you happiness and fulfillment?
Have you fallen victim to the trap that your hobbies will provide you happiness and fulfillment?
Have you fallen victim to the trap that your position, success, recognition and power will provide you happiness and fulfillment?
Have you fallen victim to the trap that retirement will provide you happiness and fulfillment?
Have you fallen victim to the trap that being involved in the church will provide you happiness and fulfillment?
If you think anything other than the sufficiency of Jesus Christ will give you happiness and fulfillment, you have fallen victim to the trap. Here are foolish words that are spoken all the time: “Maybe if I get that I will be happy.” Or “I think that will make us happy.” A fool has no discernment. The damage has already been done through the desire to want something more than God.
The ultimate consequences can be ruin and destruction. Living for your desires brings damage and devastation. Jesus said where your heart is, there your treasure will also be. You cannot serve two masters. Money is not evil; it is the desire for it that is the root. The root desire leads to the destructive behavior and resulting consequences. The desire for anything other than God is a root. What are your desires? Are you caught in a trap thinking you need something other than the creator, redeemer and sustainer of life? If so, you have fallen into the trap like Adam and Eve.
You can fool others, but God knows the truth. God knows your thoughts. HE knows the desires of your heart.
Jesus be Lord of my life today.  There is nothing I need more than you. You are the way the truth and the life. Forgive me for thinking I need anything other than you. You are my everything. You are a God of abundance. Thank you for your grace that has made me a child in your family. Thank you for forgiving me of all my sin. Thank you Lord for your shed blood to redeem me and reconcile me to God.  Today I rest in your finished, complete work on the cross. No matter the circumstance today, I will seek you first and your righteousness to find joy and fulfillment.
Daddy, thanks for your love.
