Walking through Ecclesiastes

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
I’m so troubled when I hear about someone ending their own life. Whether the celebrity or the bullied child. Something has to be missing. Something has to be wrong. As Ecclesiastes Chapter 1 states ‘even with all his wisdom and wealth, Solomon still feels empty and dissatisfied.

Centuries later, in a letter written by the apostle Paul, we discover the reason for Solomon’s sense of utter futility. All the wisdom of the world can never satisfy the human spirit. Only Jesus can bring peace and a sense of purpose. He is both the power and the wisdom of God. “For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself”
(1 Corinthians 1:18-31).’

Jesus is the answer and He is the cure!

A verse…

The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
John 6:63 NLT

A reading…
Ecclesiastes 2

Ecclesiastes 2:17-18— Work, Solomon laments, is “meaningless” in the end, because it’s “like chasing the wind.” Jesus later puts an exclamation point on this truth: “Human effort accomplishes nothing.” But, he says, his words “are spirit and life”( John 6:63 ).

A prayer…
O Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior ‘So many questions
The world is reaching
So many hurting, so many lost
With all this striving
Who can we lean on
Creation’s crying out from the dark
You are the answer to every question
The one solution to every fear
You are our help and where it comes from
You see our sadness

You feel our sorrow
And in our weakness, You make us strong
You hold the weight of
All of our failings
Great is our sin but greater the cross
For every heart that’s breaking

For every soul that’s shaking
For every sickness there’s healing in Your hands
Let every heart awaken
To see it’s You who saves us
You are my hope and the rock on which I stand
You are the answer to every question

The one solution to every fear
You are my help and where it comes from
Jesus, You are the answer

Today’s prayer is from the lyrics of today’s song The Answer by Jeremy Camp’s.
