How Do You Respond?

What happens when something good occurs in your life? Do you take credit for what has happened? Or, do you acknowledge that the blessing has occurred because of the Lord?

In Deuteronomy 9:4 it states, ““Do not think in your heart, after the Lord your God has cast them out before you, saying, ‘Because of my righteousness the Lord has brought me in to possess this land’; but it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the Lord is driving them out from before you.

Remember that the blessings in our lives are not “because of my righteousness”. The blessings in our lives come from the Lord, because of the Lord and for the Lord. Yes, we may benefit from the Lord’s working, but not because of our own doing. When you are blessed in your life, never forget who deserves the praise and thanksgiving.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
