"Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you. So we may boldly say: The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?"
Have you ever wondered why some people are born in poverty while others are born into riches? In the natural, it can seem a hard thing to understand; but that’s only because we mostly look at things through our natural eyes of understanding. If God is God, and He is—would it matter where we get our start from? No, it wouldn’t. We may have pity on the poor person, thinking it to be the worst state to be in—when instead it could be the quickest way for that person to see his/her need for a Savior. While born into riches, doesn’t leave for much need, and so we become self-sufficient and reject a Saviors help.
Have you ever done any research about some of the richest people in the world? If so, you might be surprised to find out that many of them came from poverty and climbed to fame and riches. Like John D. Rockefeller/Standard Oil Company and first billionaire is but one example. Our circumstances do not limit nor
hinder God’s plan for our life. We ourselves are the biggest hindrance to
our own success, because of our unbelief. When we put our trust in Christ, He
will cause us to be successful. God has given us the ability to make wealth. He
can bring us from any situation to the “good plan” that He has for each of
us. (Jeremiah 29:11) Never think it is your circumstances which are holding you back—The only thing that can defeat us, is what we accept or reject. Accepting or rejecting wrong thoughts is what will bring us to failure, or raise us to
victory it they be God’s thoughts. Let the Lord bring you to a better place. A
place of contentment and be willing to seek out His plan for your life. He is
always there with you and never leaves us.
Father, open my eyes to see the truth in Your words, guard over the thoughts that come my way and choose only those approved by You to remain with me. Raise me up to
the plan that You have for my life--And
help me not to be a hindrance to that plan.
