In our spiritual maturity it is imperative to recognize how God supplies us with our needs here on this earth to accomplish what He wants in our lives to serve His purpose and not our own. But so many times we lose sight of this and fall to what we see while chasing everything of this world instead of thinking about what God wants in our lives verses what we want for ourselves.
Our lives are to be an example to others and He will bless us for our obedience whether in this life or in the next. God’s promise still stands just as strong today as it did with Abraham many years ago. It is not for us to get caught up in what we don’t have but learn to appreciate what we do have. When God told Abraham that he was going to have a son and Sara laughed neither of them should have ever doubted God’s Word but accepted it in faith rather than taking matters into their own hands.
I challenge you today and every other day to not get caught up in what you don’t have but learn to content in what you do have. Then if it is in the Lord’s will that He blesses you in this life then just consider it a blessing from God for what He has given…amen
