The Lord gives His children many good things; yet sometimes in our spoiled, self-centered state we can sometimes feel like He’s not giving us everything we want. I believe God gives us everything we need, and He commissions us to combine certain ‘principals of work’ with the ‘laws of giving’ to gain those things that we want.
When I look to the scripture to find the things the Lord has given us, I’m convinced He’s provided everything we need to become successful. It’s up to us work it.
- “the Lord gives rest” – Deut 3:20
- ” the Lord…gives you the ability to produce wealth” Deut 8:18
- “The Lord gives victory to his anointed” – Psalm 20:6
- “The Lord gives strength to his people” – Psalm 29:11
- “the Lord gives sight to the blind” – Psalm 146:8
- “For the Lord gives wisdom;” – Proverbs 2:6
- The Lord gives sight to the eyes (of the poor and the oppressor) – Proverbs 29:13
- ” the Lord gives you relief from your suffering and turmoil” – Isaiah 14:3
- ” the Lord will give you insight (to what you’ve heard)” – 2 Timothy 2:7
God will add-to what you have when you do something with it.
Matthew 25:29 says “For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.”
The Lord has already given you everything you need; now you ‘work it’ to get what you want. God built you to succeed!
