Who can eat or enjoy without God?

Who can eat or enjoy themselves without God? God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to anyone who pleases him. But to the person who continues to sin, he gives the job of gathering and collecting ⌊wealth⌋. The sinner must turn his wealth over to the person who pleases God. Even this is pointless. ⌊It’s like⌋ trying to catch the wind.
Ecclesiastes 2:25‭-‬26 GW

Most of the people take things for granted. How many times do we thank God for the simple things like walking, eating, swallowing food, for saliva, sitting down, standing up, jumping etc?

We usually see them as simple until one is unable to do one of those things or becomes sick. 

In the above scripture we are asked a question. God is asking who can eat or enjoy themselves without God. The answer is we can’t enjoy if it wasn’t for His mercy and love. 

Either you know it or not, you can’t be in existence without God, He is your creator everything in the world has come from Him 

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. He created all things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible. Whether they are kings or Lords, rulers or powers— everything has been created through him and for him. He existed before everything and holds everything together.

Colossians 1:15‭-‬17 GW

All things we enjoy were created by Him. 

Let’s always be thankful to God for the opportunity He has given us to work, eat, drink, enjoy and also live. 

We can only thank Him by living a life that will please Him. That is avoiding sin at all cost. 

The theme verse goes on and says a sinner will gather wealth for the person who pleases God. 

What a pity to work yet you are working for someone else. You stay awake all night, even you get sick but all that labor will go to someone eelse

May God help us in all that we do.

Question to ponder:

  1. Do I recognise that I enjoy because God is involved?
  2. Am I conscious that God is the reason I can eat & enjoy?
  3. How often do I thank God for enjoyment, eating, drinking or any good thing that happens to me?
  4. Am I proud when I enjoy & think its my position, finances or wisdom?
