May God show us his favor and bless us! May he smile on us! (Selah)
Then those living on earth will know what you are like; all nations will know how you deliver your people.
Psalms 67:1-2 NET
The Lord’s blessings and favor in our lives show the world how He is active and how He cares for us.
The problem is when we are not happy with the blessings we receive. Why?
We are truly blessed. But we compare ourselves to others around us. Sometimes, what looks like blessings in their lives is nothing more than acquiring “things.”
God does bless us with material things, but they are just things. We must keep that in perspective.
Instead, think about how He has blessed you beyond what the world thinks. He has blessed you and allowed you to be called His.
That will translate into a future with Him in Heaven. That is the ultimate deliverance.
Father, thank You that You are active in my life. Let my life show the gratitude for Your faithfulness.
