We live in a world that is both material and spiritual. On the material side, we access our world through our five senses: sight, touch, taste, smell, and hearing. No wonder that the apostle John warned about the “lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. All that is in the world (1 John 2:16). Is easy to become enticed by the things of this world, to you think they will bless our lives.
But the Bible says that God’s blessings are both material and spiritual. He forgives our sins, heals our diseases, and redeems us from destruction, lives us, shows compassion to us, satisfies our life with good things, and even renews our youth (Psalms 103:3-5). The world cannot awkward anything to compare with the door dimensions of gods blessings -spiritual and material. When we are tempted to seek blessings and contentment in the things of this world, we need to look to God’s promised blessings.
Look around you today and counter blessings. Thank God for his provision, and commit all your needs for Him.
The vast majority of mankind never gives a thought of gratitude towards God for all His care and blessings. -Donald Gray Barnhouse.
