When I focus more on the Giver than the gift, I can be content with what I have and realize that with God I have everything I need.
And it is a good thing to receive wealth from God and the good health to enjoy it. To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life–this is indeed a gift from God. God keeps such people so busy enjoying life that they take no time to brood over the past.
Ecclesiastes 5:19-20, NLT
God wants us to view what we have (whether it is much or little) with the right perspective–our possessions are a gift from God. Although they are not the source of joy, they are a reason to rejoice because every good thing comes from God.
This Bible verse tells me that I should be happy with what I have because what I have is from God. God has truly given me so much. He continually provides for me – I am blessed.
I do have a lot and I do enjoy what I have. I am rich with His blessings.
I will leave you today with a quote that I have shared before, “Happiness is not having what we want, it is wanting what we have.”
