Today’s Affirmation: The blessings of the Lord make me rich.
What does “rich” mean to you? I have heard of rich chocolate or rich soil. Man, are they rich! Is rich the same as wealth?
This affirmation is drawn from Proverbs 10:22:
“God’s blessing makes life rich;
nothing we do can improve on God.” (The message)
God is taking me down a path today. It began through a thought about an old memory verse of mine. Deuteronomy 8:18.
“But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth…” (NIV)
I thought we would discuss following God and trusting in His calling and He would provide me the ability to create the “wealth” I need to maintain my lifestyle or feed my family in the manner they are accustomed. Is that what He is saying or is that what I want to hear to be “comfortable”?
Then I tripped over Revelation 2:9 this morning that made me reflect. “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); (NKJV)
God knows our poverty…but we are rich. Although we are in poverty we are rich. Hmmm, what does that say to you?
- In what ways are you rich?
- What is your definition of rich?
- Even in your poverty can you know you are rich?
We are blessed with the richness of God. May we reflect on that today and be thankful and encouraged. In our richness may we produce fruit.
What are your thoughts?
