When God Blesses You
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
1 Timothy 6:17-18
Everything you have, God gave you, so don’t “ego trip” over it! Enjoy all God gives you, but don’t trust anything but Him. It could all be gone in a day. Elijah discovered when the brook dried up, God was still his source (2 Kings 17) The most important thing you’ve got is your relationship with God. Anything you put before that you’re going to lose!
So what’s this all about? Simply this; If your possessions are just a status symbol or a security blanket, then you missed it. Jesus said in Matthew 10:8, “freely you received, Freely give.” Our greatest joys are not what we acquire, but what we’re able to give. You can be the solution for hurting people! If the Lord has blessed you, then bless others. When you can be trusted with little, He’ll give you more to be a blessing with and to enjoy.
God longs to bless you, but can He trust you?
