We must know where all our wealth, success, even happiness comes from, they sure don’t fall from the sky. Nor do they come from your boss, your spouses, not even your parents, or pastors. All things mentioned, plus more come from Christ, God is the provider, God is the reason for most things. I say most because some things, we just bring on ourselves, and as you all know, God will never harm us, be wise of the decisions you make, be wise of who you blame.
You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands produced this wealth for me”. But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today. If you even forget the Lord your God and follow other Gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. Like the nations the Lord destroyed for not obeying the Lord your God.
The blessings of the Lord brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it.
She has not acknowledged that I was the one who have her the grain, the new wine and oil, who lavished on her the silver and gold – which they used for baal.
As many, yes, me myself in the past have totally took credit for the good things that were taking place in my life. However success that is selfishly and or wrongly praised never lasts long. It is easy for us to become proud that our own hard-work and intelligence have made us rich and successful. living a prosperous life without thanking God, or even acknowledging that it is Him who it came from is like pushing God right out our lives. Its imperative to know how to thank God for everything you have.
Even more imperative that we never bow down to anyone or anything but God, our provider, our creator. How dare us praise another idol of things that God has provided and blessed us with? God is also a jealous God, be wise of what or who become your idols, for it easy to become blinded by worldly possessions and worldly success. Give God thanks for everything good and bad, for in every tribulation comes a priceless lesson.
Let today be a great start to an awesome week!
