—- WHEN speaking of blessings and/or how well we are doing, the true disciple must always speak in terms of Christ being his/her only true riches, and of what Jesus Christ is doing in the hearts of men, and not what money or material things are going his way or how any other worldly things are going. After all, if earthly wealth or physical things were the measure of blessing, the antichrist cults (the very enemies of God) are truly “blessed.” Think about how the false religions own billions or trillions of dollars of real estate, resources, and liquid revenues. Does that mean God is blessing them? NOT for a minute. Listen to the LORD:
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all SPIRITUAL blessings in heavenly places in Christ:” Ephesians 1:3
The sum total of your riches is what you have of Christ.
Cry out to the Son of God who is your only hope and without which you are nothing (John 15:5; Titus 2:12-14).
The only riches one has is that which he has of Christ.
“Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” James 2:5
The next time someone asks you, “How are you?” Consider responding with the Word of the LORD and joyfully exclaiming the praises of the One to whom alone they are due!
Psalm 34:2: “My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.”
Psalm 44:8: “In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.”
