I use to say in my walk getting closer to God, “I don’t want it all here on earth.” I was referring to blessing. You look while others seem to be getting everything, and they don’t even attend church as much as you do, and some how you keep on thinking I want my blessing from above. It can separate the week from the strong, when you don’t look at yourself as a failure at times like this. It can also separate the faithful from the others.
If you look at God to blessing with much, you will be just as bad as all the others in the bible who wanted to gain by turning on God, including all the people of Israel. We know what happen there, they were doing all kinds of sins.
The sad part is if you feel like a failure, then turn against God, by not going to church, and praying him then you have just failed again. God said, “STAY FAITHFUL IN THE LITTLE THINGS.” We can’t worry about what others have, just be grateful for what we do have. God will bless in the least expect way, that is what matter. The people go out and spend money on the things they can’t afford, do you consider that a blessing that they were able to get it? Those same people won’t even give a dollar to a person in the street, saying that they need every cent; spending lots, but giving little. Be faith, and at the end of the day, even after you have given one of the two dollars to the people in the street, God will bless you.
Matthew 5:45 NKJV: that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
