God's Blessing

God wants to give you your hearts desire. He wants to bless you with great spiritual and material things. The problem with most people is that they aren’t ready spiritually to receive material blessings. Most people today couldn’t handle the blessing that God has for them. Here is why. If God were to give you your material blessing today, it would end up ruling you, and you would most likely make God second in your life, or turn away from him completely. If you want material blessings from God, you must be spiritually mature. So, instead of asking God for material things, ask him for more of Him. Ask God to fill you with his Spirit and to lead you to spiritual maturity. When you are spiritually mature, everywhere you go, every hour of the day, you are thinking about God. He is number one in your life and you live to be a blessing to him. When you wake, you’ve got God; When you are at work, you’ve got God; When you are with your worst enemy, you’ve got God; When you are in the deepest part of your trial, you’ve got God: And, when you lay your head down at night, you’ve got God. When you are spiritually mature, you are always thinking about the soul of the person you are with. A spiritually mature person is a truly righteous person. So ask God for more of him, and your material blessings will follow. And I really thank God for all the blessings He has given to me.
