“But as for me my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked”- Psalm 73: 2-3 (NIV).
If you talk of reaping and amassing wealth there is no way believers in Christ can compare theirs to the people of the world. Talk of having houses and land and you find many non-believers washed with aplenty.
So, should believers also crave what they have! After all in our prayers we do also ask to be blessed- just as we see them apparently enjoying.
Of course God can never be restrained to choose whom to bless as He wills every single day. However the mistake would be to look at those who have amassed riches as the standard of blessings.
Far from it there are many multiple blessings in the lives of believers. Many have peace in their lives and enjoy the pleasure of family life which non-believers do not know of. The believers have hope for eternal life in Christ while the tycoons of this world all their hope and trust is in accumulating material things, which drive them 24/7.
Yet in the end all that is pursuing vanity for as the Scriptures say, “our days on earth are like grass; like wild flowers, we bloom and die” (Psalm 103:15, NLT).
Put your trust ever in the Lord Christ Jesus and enjoy His many blessings in your life.
Prayer for today: Lord Father God in heaven, today I pray in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, that I enjoy the countless blessings in my life without looking at others whose ways I know not!
