My children do not starve. They beg not for bread, for My righteousness covers them. Their provision is Mine. He that continually seeks more, will never be filled. Deeper and wider the hole becomes; with each shovelful he removes in his effort to fill. Weary but driven, he strives to fill what cannot be filled. Provision of his own hands leaves both empty, less blisters, dirt and sweat of his strife. You are not he. You have taken already my provision, and will continue to receive in peace as you need, content in the care and sufficiency of the Father. Blessing grown as you bless others. Peace of heart, and restful sleep come to those who trust in Me. Worry flees the faithful heart, and greed cannot wake its rest. I Am, and give completely. A faithful heart knows when to rest from its work, and when to labor hard for its master. Do not be slave to the fear of having little; the greater trap is in having much, and the fear of the loss of it.
Luke 12:15 (ESV) – And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
Bottom Line: Our culture promises happiness with wealth and position; our Lord teaches differently. The endless temptation of “more” can ruin our love for our families, cause us to not enjoy our blessings, and rob us of restful sleep that the Lord wants us to have. Trust the God of our provision. If you are His child, you will have enough.
