Anything you hold in your own hands, you lose.
In order to use you, God must be the One to fill you. And God can only fill empty hands.
Therefore when God gives you things in life, be it wealth, prosperity, material goods, relationships, ect., don’t waste it, don’t grasp it, don’t trust in it for security, and don’t expect it to satisfy you.
Place all that you love in God’s hands, so that He, and He alone, may be your security and satisfaction.
I’ve given you a gift and you so deserve it, Child.
You’ve taken the gift and given it back to me. You are wise for this. For only a fool keeps my gifts for himself.
By giving it back to me, I will increase its fortitude and magnitude tenfold. I will multiply your gifts and shower you with more blessings because I have seen you are a good receiver and you are grateful.
It is written, “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you, the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26) Child, it is no coincidence that you are hearing this blessing today. There are no coincidences in My kingdom. Because you knelt before Me, and humbly offered yourself to Me today, My peace will be with you.
You’ve come into My presence, a resting place from the chaos that surrounds you, and you will reap the rewards. Stay here, Child. Do not be distracted. The entire world serves to distract you. Abide in me. I am not far from you, as you often feel.
Perhaps could your feelings actually be a reflection of your distance to me? When you feel that I am distant, despondent, or silent, come closer. In my presence, you will see that I’m offering to you peace. My face is shining upon you. Abide and bask in the light of My presence. Then go, and share this light with the world.
Most of us agree: we’re blessed. Our lives are full of good things like family, friendship, love, career, success, money, food, music, nature and on and on. But let us remember these good things for what they are: gifts. Rather than clinging to or obsessing over any of these gifts, may we instead cling to and become obsessed with the Giver of all good gifts.
The Sabbath and Tithe are not duties, as most people tend to think. They are privileges – gifts from God to remind you that you are not Him! A time for you to stop trying so hard and let God multiply all of your hard work.
People usually know what they want but rarely do they know if they’re ready for it. They pray to God for things and then wonder whether He’s been listening at all when they don’t get them right away. I can assure you, God hears your prayers. He knows the desires of your heart and also when you are ready to receive them. When you are ready, your prayers will be answered. His timing is perfect.
