Word for Today:Blessings without sorrow.
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it” (Proverbs 10:22).
Every good and perfect gift is from God in Christ Jesus. True blessing from God is associated joy, without any sorrow added to it.
I am often amazed at the ways and manner people look for money. Many people, including those in the church will easily lie, cheat or be dishonest so as to make fast money or material benefits. When it comes to looking for money, you hardly find people with integrity, including big title holders in the church.
I have often felt that ignorance is at the root of lack of integrity. Many people will readily accept gifts from the devil or his agent, not mindful of the fact every gift from the devil has sorrow associated with it, no matter how long. Some people when looking for babies, do not see anything wrong with buying the baby or visiting the native doctor or marine spirit. I had a personal experience. Never you be deceived, all that glitters is not gold.
True blessing from God comes from total obedience to God’s word and instructions (Deuteronomy 28:1-14).
Some Christians are not ready for hard work, but rather live in fantasy. I have read in my bible that those who are NOT ready to work should not eat either:
“For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies” (2Thessalonians 3:10-11)
Beloved, for every piece of work you do , the Lord is watching . Aside from the money or material benefits you may receive, there is spiritual reward for every work you do. While you are working, the Lord is always watching, looking out for diligence, sincerity, reliability, honesty, faithfulness etc. Many Christians may not realise what they are missing when they are not committed to their work .
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” ( James 1:17).
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Dear Father, every gift from you carries no sorrow; give us the grace to know when blessing or gift is from you in Jesus mighty name. Amen
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
