Remember: You Are Not Entitled To GOD's Blessings
I received another gift yesterday unexpectedly. It was a planner that I really needed. GOD provided it through someone, unexpectedly, out of the blue, again. It was a complete surprise. I'm really grateful for it. It also occurred to me yesterday that I've become so used to GOD blessings, that I started to feel entitled to them.
I had to repent. We are not entitled to the blessings of GOD. The Lord owes us nothing. People owe us nothing. So when GOD and people, when GOD through people show us kindness, we should be extremely grateful, and try our best to remain that way. We can even find ways to express our gratitude by attempting to help them with whatever they need.
Honestly, thinking back on all the ways that GOD has blessed me and provided for me unexpectedly, just like the scripture Psalms 2:11 reads; I was in awe of the Lord and moved to show great reverence to my Provider. Praise GOD from whom all blessings, provision and protection flow!
Cheers to a prayerful day,
