GOD’S BLESSING


GOD’S BLESSING

Proverbs 10:22 (NKJV) The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.

This is such a rich verse, right?  When God blesses, it makes us rich.  So what is rich?  Well, to the world, rich is having lots of money and lots of things.  We know from the scripture that money and things in themselves are not bad, but what they do to us can make them bad.

So when we say, “God’s blessings make us rich,” I think we need to look beyond just earthly wealth and see the spiritual wealth that God, our Father, has for us while we live on this earth, and for all eternity.  To be blessed by God, to me, means having a close and intimate fellowship with Him.  It means to be blessed spiritually, mentally, and physically.

For us to be well in heart, soul, and body is beyond the few things that this world can offer.  When I look at some very rich people, I would not want the life that they have.  Yet I look at others that have earthly wealth and love God, and they are truly blessed!

So today, do not look just for the wealth of this world; look for the wealth through Him.  This will include money, but it will also include so much more!  Beyond anything this world can offer, let your true blessing be to know Him, and to be intimately acquainted with your Heavenly Father.  That is the best we can ever have!

Confession: The wealth of this world cannot compare to what I have in Christ.  To know God intimately is the most valuable possession that I have, and today, I am going to get to know Him more.
