It All Comes From God

It All Comes From God

At the end of David’s life, he had made a good conclusion about what he had, and what it really meant. He said, 'It all comes from God.' If only I/we would hold that perspective, it would help us to live a more dedicated and contented life for God.

As I think about some need that I might have for which I need God to provide, there is really nothing very important that comes to mind. That thought makes me feel glad. What I have materially is not what I value most.

Father God, thank You that at this time in my life, I can feel content with the material possessions You have given us. I do thank You so much for my family and our relationships with each other! You are good, and You are faithful. AMEN

Respect for the Lord is good; it will last forever. The judgments of the Lord are true; they are completely right. Psalm 19

 

It All Comes From God

Scripture:

13 Now, our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name. 14 “These things did not really come from me and my people. Everything comes from you; we have given you back what you gave us. 15 We are like foreigners and strangers, as our ancestors were. Our time on earth is like a shadow. There is no hope. 16 LORD our God, we have gathered all this to build your Temple for worship to you. But everything has come from you; everything belongs to you. 17 I know, my God, that you test people’s hearts. You are happy when people do what is right. I was happy to give all these things, and I gave with an honest heart. Your people gathered here are happy to give to you, and I rejoice to see their giving. (1 Chronicles 29:13-17 NCV)
