Many of My children are suffering all around the world. You take for granted the basic things that you have every day, so comparing yourself to others is never wise. Wisdom is trusting in the Lord with all of your heart and not leaning on your own understanding. It is acknowledging Me in all your ways, and trusting Me to make your paths straight.
You have asked for much. Did you think it would cost you nothing? You must persevere, for only those that are strong in the Lord and the strength of His might will be able to stand. Let nothing move you. Financial stability is not what you should put your trust in, for riches can fly away in a day. Knowing that the God who owns it all is able to keep you regardless of the current economic situation.
I am not out to make your life unbearable. I am molding you into a yielded vessel who trusts in Your Master and Savior. Rest, My child, for your striving accomplishes nothing. Take your eyes off of yourself and focus on Me. Then you will be able to discover what I am doing and get involved. Otherwise, you may miss out on the real blessing each day holds.
1 Chronicles 29:12 Living Bible (TLB)
Riches and honor come from you alone, and you are the ruler of all mankind; your hand controls power and might, and it is at your discretion that men are made great and given strength.
Proverbs 23:4-5 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
4 Don’t ruin your health trying to get rich. If you are smart, you will give it up. 5 In the blink of an eye, money can disappear, as if it grew wings and flew away like a bird.
Psalm 39:4-6 The Message (MSG)
4-6 Tell me, what’s going on, God?
How long do I have to live?
Give me the bad news!
You’ve kept me on pretty short rations;
my life is string too short to be saved.
Oh! we’re all puffs of air.
Oh! we’re all shadows in a campfire.
Oh! we’re just spit in the wind.
We make our pile, and then we leave it.
