This week has been a great week for our family. We were able to upgrade our van with a new-to-us van. My middle son was also able to purchase his own first car. The Lord's favor was upon us during each of these dealings and we give HIM all glory for making them possible. I confess, though, I was waiting for something to come along and mess it up!
But we must be careful. It is times like these, when the Lord has blessed us, that the enemy's ears perk up and he takes notice of us even more. He will begin to fight us and try to turn those things into bad or mess them up for us. But God works all things for good to those that love the Lord. Hold onto the promises God has given us. He wants us to have nice things ( Romans 8:32), and don't let Satan tell you that isn't true!!
So today, count your blessings. Know that you weren't given them by chance or for the purpose of ensnaring you. Our Father God wants you to be blessed to be a blessing! How can you help others if you are poor? How can you help the Kingdom of God by being needy yourself? Our job is to take care of the widows and orphans, and we can only do that with the things the Lord blesses us with.
Have a wonderful weekend and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to our moms out there!!
