The theme of Ecclesiastes is the necessity of fearing God in a fallen and, therefore, frequently confusing and frustrating world. Human beings have longed to find out about God and try to understand His ways, but we cannot because He is God and we are not. Our understanding of the world is limited, so we are left with leaving it all to God, letting Him make sense of life, while we seek to learn what it means to fear God and keep His commandments, which is true wisdom. Ecclesiastes is a great source for questions on the meaning of life from a Biblical perspective. As we experience the daily stress of life, Ecclesiastes can help keep our focus on eternal, rather than worldly things. This 33-page devotion takes you through Ecclesiastes one chapter a day for twelve days.
Comment: I believe God’s timing is perfect. These verses confirmed in my heart she was the one and it was good for me to go and ask for her hand in marriage. God spoke to me through this passage, reminding me two are better than one. Together, we could make it through life and withstand the attacks of the enemy.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, help us as we contemplate, “What is the desire of my heart?” If I could have it my way, what would I do with my life? Holy Spirit, we need Your guidance, Your help, Your direction when we think about these things. Reveal my life purpose to me. Show me what You want me to do. And then, Lord, give me the courage to do it.
