It is a symptomatic moment of our world at the present time, the lives just think of the world with all its offering, and forgot to have fellowship with God

Human being in the mirage of the World

Mirage is a phenomenon that usually occurs in such vast terrain of the desert. A pseudo shadow puddle, looks like there but it is not. Human desires are also very similar to the ‘mirage’; thirsty people expected it as water, but when he approached not find anything. The Word of God in 1 John 2: 15-17 says: Do not love the world, and what is in it. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not from the Father but from the world. And the world is passing away with his wishes, but those who do the will of God remains forever.
It does not mean human life away from even isolated the life of the world. It does not mean that believers are prohibited to become rich physically. These statements are unrealistic because we live in the world. We are God's creation, created to rule the world and to fellowship with Him (see : Genesis 1: 27-28; 2:15). It’s proven that prophet of Abraham, Moses, King of David, were the rich man physically and spiritually. Prophet of Solomon misjudged to view the life of the world before finding the wisdom of God. And he concluded that everything he had such as treasure, gold, silver and power were useless if he was not afraid and hold the command of God (See`: Ecclesiastes 12: 8, 13-14)
It is important to remember that a worldview is comprehensive. View of the world affects all parts of life, from money to morality, from politics to the social and cultural life. All humans really have worldly desires, and `everybody love the pleasure of the world. But, when the lives just think of the world with all its offering, and we do not have fellowship with God, the result is vanity. In fact, the excessive desire of the world to lead glorification of it. Excessive desires create a pleasure to live in the world itself. The human put the fantasy of the essential things, put temporary pleasure rather than perpetual pleasure and put the worldly life than everlasting life. Humans have been deceived by the desire of the world (Gal 5: 17-19).
Life is a journey of our faith doing the will of God in the middle of mirage world. The question is whether we have gained the wisdom of God as well as Solomon. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Rom 12:2)
