Chasing the Wind: Experiencing God’s Clarity in a Confusing World

August 15, 2021

Ecclesiastes 1

Life’s experiences are not always happy.  But the world tells us to demand happiness, do all we can to attain it, and make personal satisfaction our chief goal.  Solomon, writing about his own life, discovered that his wealth, power, position, wives, and accomplishments did not make him happy.  Happiness is an elusive goal because people and circumstances change quickly.  True and lasting happiness, however, comes from pleasing God.  Thus, happiness cannot be achieved.  It can only be received through a right relationship with God, because only God knows what is really best for us.  If you are chasing after happiness you will never find it.  If you are seeking after God, you will find endless joy.
