PHYSICAL BLESSINGS FROM GOD
God has blessed us with many
physical blessings. These blessings are so many in number
that it would be impossible to count them. "And my God shall supply all
your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians
4:19) Following are some of God's physical blessings:
has blessed us with our families. "Houses and riches are an inheritance
from fathers, But a prudent wife is from the Lord.
(Proverbs 19:14) Our wives are from God and our children are too. "Behold,
children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward."
has blessed us with prosperity and health. "Beloved, I pray that
you may prosper in all things and be in health, just
as your soul prospers. For I rejoiced greatly when brethren
came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the
truth." (3 John 2-3) If you have both your health and a sound mind
you are a rich person.
God has blessed us with food and clothing. "Therefore I
say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will
drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is
not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of
the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly
Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" (Matthew 6:25-26)
Remember that God has given you what you have.
"And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives
you power to get wealth, that He may establish His
covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day." (Deuteronomy
God has blessed us with a beautiful world. "The heavens
declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto
night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is
not heard." (Psalm 19:1-3) The sun, moon, stars, flowers, rivers and all
these blessing of nature come from our Creator.
"What shall I render to the Lord for
all His benefits toward me?" (Psalm 116:12) Will you respond to God's
blessings with love and obedience? God
has blessed us and in our love we should respond in humble obedience to His
will. (John 14:15)
