Often times we think we can make it by our own power without the involvement of God. With this, we forget the fact that "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 (KJV). The difference between what the world gives you and what God gives you is that while that of the world comes with sorrow and pain, whatever comes from God will always be good and perfect. By perfect, it means it is complete and you don't have to worry yourself an inch about how to possibly make it better. It is a complete package delivered to you for an utmost enjoyment. Once you understand this, then your pursuit and orientation should change. Our scripture reads: “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” Take note of this verse very well, it says "The blessing of the LORD", and not the blessing of a man or the strength of a man. What you need to enjoy in life is never going to be based on your ability but God's ability. It is never going to be based on your own account but on God's account. What you need is not necessarily your effort but God's blessing. But does that mean you should not do anything other than fold your arms while you wait for God's blessing to come? No, that's not what I am saying. It is God's blessing upon what you do that guarantees your success in life.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I have lived on the curse side of life in my finances, business, family and my relationships. Fortify me by your Spirit to cross over into the blessing side of life from this day. I choose to obey your word and to live and walk in the blessing. In Jesus name, Amen
