Most people in today’s world will go through different periods in which they want to express their feelings about not getting what they want in life. There is a struggle that happens within humanity that touches most people. This struggle happens to be a lack of getting what you want.
Today, the world is populated with over 7 billion people on the planet. Most people want to have a better life or at least get what they want out it. After all, we wake up everyday hoping that we will accomplish another goal in life. We want to know that our life matters.
When we stay in the same position for a long time, we tend to get bored. Human beings have a mind that wants to keep on learning. Therefore, most fast food jobs and retail positions don’t give a person motivation. You basically go into work every single day doing the same type of work. This gets boring.
Most people today say that if they could have their dream job, they would take it in a heartbeat and leave behind what they are doing right now. It’s hard to imagine yourself getting to the next level when everything around you seems to be stopping you.
If you are a spiritual person, you may feel like God is not helping you to achieve your dream or goal. Perhaps you have been praying and yet you see nothing changing. Maybe you are not meant to move ahead you say to yourself. However, another part of you feels that you just need an opening to get to the next level.
When you pray and nothing happens, you begin to question God and your self-worth. We live in a period where material possessions are in plenty. There are so many things that you could buy. If you don’t own a car, home, electronics and computer systems, you feel like you are not fitting in.
Most gadgets that we buy today help us to keep from getting bored in life. Unfortunately, these gadgets require a lot of money to purchase them. A simple I-phone can cost $1,000.00. You could buy a new computer for around the same price. When you add up what it takes to own dishwashers, refrigerators and repair costs, you need a lot of money.
If you earn less than $100,000 a year, its going to be hard to run a household with two or more people in it. Food costs are rising, and you will find that you need to constantly spend money when you are outside of your home. Your coffee to a snack will cost you money each day.
We want to get to a higher level in life because we often feel the need to buy more gadgets and “things”. It’s important to know that we live in a world that is no longer run by the Old Testament. In fact, most people today feel like they can live a more liberated life. Around the world, most countries have laws that allow their people to live a life of having more freedom. Even communist countries like China have become more liberal over the years to allow its people to have more “things”. Hearing about billionaire Chinese citizens in China is not uncommon today.
It’s important to note that people all over the world are trying to find ways to get a good job and to look for opportunities of success. We live in a world where television shows teach us that having more is better. If you have ever had riches, you may agree that it is a lot more fun to have more money. Those without a lot of money may experience more pain and sorrow in life. They may feel like their life is not as happy as they would like it to be.
Once you step into a world of having what you want and getting it, its hard to imagine going back to a world in which you can’t get what you want. In today’s world, we are all meant to do what we can in order to have a fresh start in life.
If you are not getting what you want after you have prayed for it, its most likely because you are not meant to have it right now. It’s important to take your time when it comes to learning and growing as a person.
When we hear Biblical stories about Abraham, Job and King Solomon, we often wonder why it can’t be you that has all these riches. You may ask yourself why you are not blessed with wealth.
If you read the New Testament, you will see that a shift took place regarding wealth. The New Testament teaches that its better to give than to receive. It teaches that a rich man cannot enter the kingdom of God. It also teaches that earthly riches will eventually pass away. It also teaches that we should give to those that are in need and to trust God for what you want.
The world teaches you that in order to find and be happy, you must first have great wealth and to get it by any means possible.
The apostles in the New Testament all abandoned their earthly lives to follow Jesus Christ. They went around the world teaching and preaching the good news about salvation in Jesus Christ.
The apostles were not blessed with the wealth of Abraham but had spiritual riches. Their “milk and honey” was not a material possession. Instead, they had a more spiritual belief that God would always take care of their needs.
The apostles were known for working to take care of themselves as they preached the gospel. God didn’t give them wealth as princes and princesses would get. Instead, God gave them faith to believe that he would always provide for them.
Most Christians and non-Christians in the world today live paycheck to paycheck. Most people today wonder why they can’t have more. It’s amazing that the world’s wealth is held by only 1% of the world’s population.
