OWN YOUR BLESSINGS!
It is amazing how gracious God is to us. He gives us blessings that we do not deserve. He blesses us daily. No child of God ever goes without receiving God’s blessings. Many of us have blessings right in front of us but do not have the faith to own them, living beneath our potential when the Lord has already provided what we need. We have riches at our fingertips. In Deuteronomy 1:21, we find these words:
“‘Look! He has placed the land in front of you. Go and occupy it as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has promised you. Don’t be afraid! Don’t be discouraged!”
Fear had taken over the faith of the Israelites and crippled them. They could not see what lay ahead, for their eyes were blinded by fear. God had blessed them, and more blessings were on the way. Yes, there would be challenges before they would reach the final destination God had prepared, but all they had to do was put their trust in God. Most of us can relate to this. When we get to the point in life that we are frustrated with our predicament, but afraid to move forward, that is when we miss our blessings. What God has for each one of us is ours! Don’t let it pass because of a lack of faith! Rise up, move out and receive what God has for you. Own your blessings!
