God’s blessing is the greatest wealth we can know in our lives. We may be fortunate in every area of our lives but without God’s blessing on our lives and activities we are poor.
Proverbs 10:22 The Lord’s blessing is our greatest wealth. All our work adds nothing to it!
We cannot earn His blessing, we cannot add to His blessing, but we can respond to His blessing with thankfulness and by pursuing Him with all our hearts.
Deuteronomy 11:22-23 If you carefully observe all these commands I am giving you to follow—to love the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to hold fast to Him— then the LORD will drive out all these nations before you, and you will dispossess nations larger and stronger than you.
We all pass through seasons. Sometimes we think that God’s blessing is only present when everything is going right. This is not always the case. We pass through seasons and that is simply part of life. The issue is that God is still with us even in these seasons.
Psalm 23:2-4 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.
David writes in this verse about a season of ‘the valley of the shadow of death’. We all have difficult seasons, but that does not mean God is not with us. He wants to carry us through these seasons.
