“Everlasting Blessings are Worth the Wait”

               Contentment is great gain. If you are not careful you can place yourself in a position where you are begging your needs after having paid for your wants. At this point you’ve got a case of your pride not allowing you to admit your mistake, and further placing you in the path of ruin. All of this could be avoided if you’d learn to have godly contentment. It is knowing and believing that what God has for you is for you, and that He has no trouble making sure you get what is for you. So many people I’ve come across, both young and of age, including myself at times, have fallen into the trap of not being content with such things they have and begin to pursue everything that crosses their eye. In effect here are the things that have destroyed men throughout the beginning of time. These are the Lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life. In essence it is the uncontrolled urging of the carnal man to obtain more than he has, and can handle at the time he desires it. There is no waiting, there is no praying, there is no trusting, and there is no peace. A characteristic that travels alongside this mind set is fear. Fear because the man believes that what he has is not sufficient enough to sustain him tomorrow. Although he has no clue of tomorrow, he spends his time worrying, toiling, and gathering more, and more stuff.

                 There is always a need to step back and take a look at every situation and desire to see if it is a beneficial one at the time. Even before this though, if you take the time to seek the face of the all wise all knowing God and His will, it is amazing how so much clarity is discovered in his presence. It is not that you will be told no all the time, but what happens is, in his presence there is fullness of joy, and so the voided space you were seeking to be filled up by the created thing or being will be filled by the creator of it all. Then you will see your desires in the proper light. You will find there is much more to enjoy when there is time spent reflecting on God’s provision and o prosper you in His way.

                  The promise has been already made for provision and prosperity, but the time for delivery of the gift may take a bit to arrive, nevertheless God’ s promises are yeah, and Amen. There is no need to doubt the faithful and longsuffering God. So take your eyes off of others, their stuff, and their status. You are as important to God as they are, and fit for an enjoyable life. Get ready to wait and be careful for nothing. Let your request be made known, and enjoy the time it takes to get to you. God is not a man that he should lie. His word has been spoken, and shall come to pass.
