Grace For You Today
Encounter Jesus the King of Glory to enjoy His blessing without sorrow!
”Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South. Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.“ Genesis 13:1-2 NKJV
”Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him.“ Genesis 26:12 NKJV
Most of our prayers are for prosperity, yet most of us don’t realise that in God’s view, prosperity is always linked to a particular place that God had ordained for us.
We need to seek the place where God wants to position us, rather than seeking for riches and fame.
Where God has placed us is of primary importance than how and when God will prosper us. It is good to ask God how to prosper than asking Him to prosper us any how .
Both Abram and Isaac became wealthy. The former went to Egypt and came back wealthy to the promised land but the latter remained in the promised land and prospered a hundred fold.
However, the discerning factor between the two was that Abram returned with wealth and also Hagar, the maid who eventually became a thorn in the flesh that posed a possible threat of even separation between Abram and Sarah.
Thank God, at this critical juncture Abram chose to listen to his wife by sending Hagar away.
”The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.“ Proverbs 10:22 .
My beloved friend, this is the discerning factor- whether your blessing is with sorrow or without sorrow. We need to prosper, not anyhow, but in the right place that God has ordained for us even though we may face fear , yes the fear of the unknown where you can stand by faith but not by your feelings or past experiences. Amen 🙏
Dear Father God, enlighten my eyes of understanding to discern your blessing in its true sense. My primary focus is the place ( domain) that You have ordained. Strengthen me with all might through the Holy Spirit to step out in faith by expelling the fear of the unknown in Jesus name! Amen 🙏
Praise Jesus !
