The LORD’s blessing brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it.
The intimate connection with Jesus is itself a tremendous blessing. It is a blessing that makes you rich in all areas of your life: physical, emotional, social, financial, intellectual, relational, and spiritual.
The blessings of God’s riches are far better than those of the world. As todays’ verse says, your wealth in Jesus adds no sorrow or trouble to it. This is something the world cannot offer. The riches the world offers may look great and may even satisfy for a while, but they lack the ability to bring lasting peace, contentment, and joy in the midst of all that is going on around you.
When Jesus is the center of your life and your life’s focus is to be like Jesus, the blessings of your wealth in Him spill over so that it becomes a blessing to all the people around you. You give the world a glimpse of the One who supplies true wealth; letting them see what they, too, can have for themselves.
Pray: Father, what a wonderful blessing You are to my life! I’m so grateful that You gave me endless blessings that can only come from Jesus so that I can share them with everyone around me. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
