Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalms 37:4 NIV
The Lord gives His children good gifts. When we adopt a scarcity mindset, we forget what God has already given us. He creates in us a new heart, and as our thoughts are transformed, we begin to see the abundance more clearly.
Our hearts begin to desire to do good as we become more like Jesus. He is the best role model that we can have. The Lord is not a fairy godmother who magically grants us our heart’s desire. He calls us to stay close to Him, and as we pray and trust Him day by day, our hearts are uplifted and things fall into place for us. Amen.
For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. – Romans 8:29 KJV
God has a purpose for all of us. He even had a purpose for Jesus before Jesus was born. The Lord knew that Jesus would be the Savior of the world.
The image of Jesus was a humble one. He was born into poverty and placed into a manger. Most of us can say that we were at least born at a hospital, not in a barn!
When we start to think that we have to be more like other people to be successful, we can remember that we are the children of God. It doesn’t get better than that! Amen.
Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.” – Numbers 13:30 NIV
The Lord is a God of possibilities. He didn’t promise the children of Israel land that they could not possess. He promised them land that He knew they were meant to live in. They took a look at the people who currently lived in the land flowing with milk and honey and declared it impossible to take over. They had so little faith!
How often do we question what God has promised us? How often do we doubt the richness and joy we will have in Heaven? Do material possessions matter here on earth? The Lord knows we need things, and when it matters, He always provides for us, or He shows us what we can appreciate more about what we already have. He doesn’t ask us to manifest wealth, because He has already promised the world to us. We just have to follow Him and trust that everything will work out. Amen.
Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. – Psalm 37:4 KJV
When we seek the Lord first, everything adds up for us. We don’t have to make long lists of things we want, and monetary goals, because money doesn’t buy happiness.
When we delight in the Lord, not only does He bless us, but also everything that He wants for us works out perfectly. We don’t have to worry about money, because He has already met all our needs. When we seek His face, everything falls into place. Amen.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV
God loves us so much that He gives us an inheritance and a covenant. When God blessed Abraham, He asked Abraham to move, and to go to the land that He promised.
I received the keys to my new house on 4/9/21, and I couldn’t help but marvel at how much the Lord has given me. I wanted a safe place to live, and He delivered more than I could ask or think.
We have hope that we will be with our Heavenly Father forever, and the relationship continues no matter where we are.
We have faith that Jesus saves us, heals us, and blesses us. We are incredibly fortunate to have a loving God who provides for all our needs. Amen.
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. And He spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch? – Luke 6:38-39 KJV
When we give our talents and knowledge for the benefit of others, abundance returns to us. We give not from a place of greed, but because Jesus has given so much to us.
We have to be careful if we find ourselves judging others with a harsh measuring stick. If we turned the tables on ourselves, would we want the Lord to judge us with that same ruler? Luckily for us, judgment is up to God and that is not a job we need to take from Him, because He does it better than we ever could.
When we think we know it all and can see clearly, we are in trouble, because we are blind. We don’t see other people’s thoughts. We can only make assumptions. The Lord can see everything. He knows everything. He leads us, and we do not need to stumble through life without His guidance. He is there to help us every step of the way. Amen.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” – Matthew 7:7-8 NIV
Our God rewards us for asking Him when we need something. If we ask Him for a good, safe home to live in, He grants our petition willingly.
When we seek peace in our relationships and work, He removes the barriers that prevent us from finding peace.
When one door closes, He opens a door to a place that is twice as big. We sometimes have to be careful what we ask for, because He delivers on His promises. The Lord created the universe and nothing is impossible for Him.
We can be grateful for the abundant blessings He gives us. He is a wonderful Heavenly Father and a cheerful provider. Amen.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
The Lord’s plans for us are always better than we can imagine. He wants us to live in a wonderful home. He blesses our families and relationships. He gives us peace when we need it the most.
He gives us hope of salvation and eternal life.
When we consider how well God’s plans for us come to fruition, we can be joyful and grateful. He is a much better planner than we are!
He can heal the brokenhearted and mend damaged relationships. He knows what words to put into our months to bless our communications. He has the ultimate recipe for happiness. Amen.
And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Luke 12:29-31 KJV
The Lord knows what our basic needs are, but He also knows what we need to be happy, healthy, and safe. He knows what things we need and what we do not need.
He doesn’t force us to accept things that are not a good fit for us. He cares about every detail of our lives, and when we truly let go and trust Him, He blesses us with more than we can ask or think.
We do not have to settle because when we wait on the Lord, He helps us. He shows us where we should go and what we should do.
When we take time for prayer and meditation, the time is never wasted. Amen.
He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and walk humbly with your God. – Micah 6:8 NIV
Good things and abundance come from the Lord. When we act justly and love mercy, we become closer to God in our walk with Him.
We can trust that when we show mercy, He will bless our lives in a much bigger way than what our limited minds can fathom. He has good plans for us, much greater than we know.
When He calls us to move, we can move. When He asks us to trust Him, we can know that He will never let us down. We can have peace that when we follow God’s purpose for us, we will be blessed beyond imagination. He renews and teaches us each day. Amen.
