Psalm 112:1-3 MSG “Hallelujah! Blessed man, blessed woman, who fear GOD, Who cherish and relish his commandments, Their children robust on the earth, And the homes of the upright—how blessed! Their houses brim with wealth And a generosity that never runs dry.”
You’re looking at someone else’s life saying, “They’re blessed and they’re not living in obedience and surrender to God.” You’re allowing the “appearance” of someone else’s blessings to deter you from yours (They could be plagued with nightmares, demons, emotional issues and God knows what else.).
See in God’s providence, He can store up the wealth of the wicked for those of us who live in obedience and surrender to God. God will put the wealth of the wicked right in the hands of the obedient.
Proverbs 13:22 AMP “A good man leaves an inheritance [of moral stability and goodness] to his children’s children, and the wealth of the sinner [finds its way eventually] into the hands of the righteous, for whom it was laid up.”
So, if God asked you to purge and give up things that “everyone else, including those who are seemingly blessed” are doing, you better purge and give it up.
We can’t live like, talk like, look like, dress like, drink like, cheat like, sex like, drug like, party like, listen like, and view like the world does. Don’t let appearances fool you. Everything that is glittering for someone else now may soon be your gold. Stay focused on God and do what God tells YOU to do. Dr.J.
