Do you desire God’s favor, grace and blessing?
I think we all do .I wonder though. Have we ever asked ourselves “Why?” we should desire it?
In my walk as a Christian I have found myself coming through many phases. One of those phases was coming out of the idea that God wanted me to have good stuff going on in my life so I could be comfortable. I began to realize that the benefits I receive as a Christian aren’t for me, but rather they are for God. Sure, I get the rewards of them, but in the end they aren’t for me.
Psalm 67:1 (NIV84)
1 May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face shine upon us, Selah
Psalm 67:2 (NIV84)
2 that your ways may be known on earth,
your salvation among all nations.
Psalm 23:3 (NIV84)
3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
God is revealing Himself and doing these amazing things in our lives and the world so the lost and found of this world will recognize Him and revel in His goodness.
