The things this world has to offer will last the equivalent of a blink of an eye in the light of eternity. When we line up our desires with the desires of God, we are given the peace to know it will last the test of time and have an impact on God’s eternal kingdom. Verse 17 says, The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. Nothing will bless our lives more than to do the will of God because we know it will last. We simple need to align ourselves with God’s plan for His kingdom and we will be blessed. It’s hard to do, but has the ability to give us eternal fulfillment if we just stay faithful to Him.
