“The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it.” (Proverbs 10:22)
Dear friend, I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Today we are going to meditate on the promise verse which is from Proverbs 10:22, “The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it.” If you read Genesis 24:1, the Bible says, “Abraham was now very old, and the Lord had blessed him in every way.” Isaiah 51:2 says, “look to Abraham, your father, and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called him he was only one man, and I blessed him and made him many.”
If you read Genesis 17:4-5, God says to Abraham, “As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations. No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations.” Abraham had no children for many years. But if you read Romans 4:17 we read, “As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.”
Abraham was blessed with a son, Isaac, in a supernatural way when he was hundred years old. Yes, we too might have all kinds of problems in our life but according to Psalm 121:1-2, God will be our help, “I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Even in my life, I went through various kinds of problems, but I kept looking to the cross and God changed my situation and blessed me. Psalm 66:12 says, “You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.” Proverbs 28:25 also says, “Those who trust in the Lord will prosper.” God will not only give you worldly blessings, but He will give you spiritual blessings too according to Ephesians 1:3, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” According to Psalm 34:10 “Look to the Lord and seek Him with all your heart for it says, “The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.” Yes, according to these promises God will supply you with all that you need. Cheer up and be blessed by the Lord.
I look to You for all the help I need. You know my heart’s desires and all that I need. May Your providing hand bless me and grant me all that I require to be Your testimony for Your glory. May all praise be to you now and always.
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
