“So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom.” Luke 12:32 (NLT)
Settle this within yourself this morning of how tremendously blessed you are. It’s not when you get the desires of your heart that you will become blessed. No, you are blessed right now! Discontentment can tell you that you need this or that before you can truly be happy. Only to find that when you finally obtain the things you want, you are now on to the next thing. Never satisfied. The people of Israel wandered in the desert for forty years, looking to reach the land that God had promised. Their hearts were full of complaints and murmuring. They were frustrated with God, with their situation, upset with Moses, and at each others’ throats because they couldn’t see how blessed they were. Although living in tents isn’t the Ritz, living in God is. They had forgotten their rich heritage and the mighty God they served. It’s insulting to God when we don’t see how blessed we are already. If you know the King of kings and the Lord of lords, and if you are a daughter of the King, then sister girl, you are truly blessed!
Prayer: Father, You are good to me. Thank You for all that You have done. Help me to walk throughout this day with a thankful heart. I have nothing to complain about and no reason to murmur. I could be dead, but I’m alive. I could be lost, but I’m found in You. Having a relationship with You means more than any material blessing. I’m Your daughter, and You are my God, and I’m content with that. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
