Learn about God by observing His creation


Deuteronomy 10:14 Look around you: Everything you see is God‘s—the heavens above and beyond, the Earth, and everything on it.

“The whole earth is a living icon of the face of God. I do not worship matter. I worship the Creator of matter who became matter for my sake, who willed to take His abode in matter, who worked out my salvation through matter. Never will I cease honoring the matter which wrought my salvation! I honor it, but not as God. Because of this I salute all remaining matter with reverence, because God has filled it with his grace and power. Through it my salvation has come to me.” — St. John of Damascus (675-749)

DO YOU WANT TO BE WEALTHY?


 

Your wealth lies in an unseen place, with God. Jesus says, ”Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven” Matthew 6:19. If you trust Him, you will be wealthy beyond all measure. Many people believe and act upon the biblical principles of tithing and giving offerings, yet they never seem to be able to leave what we call land even. Though their basic needs are met, they are living from paycheck to paycheck. They never get ahead; they just break even. They live little lives and miss the joy-filled, fruitful, peaceful, and abundant life that God has for them. God’s word clearly teaches that He desires for us to live in the land of plenty Deuteronomy 8:7-9.
God brought the Israelites out of the land of lack through the land of even and into the land of plenty. He wanted every one of us to live in abundance. In our generation, only a few people enter into the best God have provided for through Jesus Christ, while the majority barely get by and have no joy or peace. They struggle and struggle, hearing about the better land but not understanding why they cannot take up residence there. We need to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and then all the other things will be added unto us Matthew 6:33. Remember that God has abundance for you, and determine to live the good life that God prearranged for you to live Ephesians 2:10. Apart from God, we are powerless and nothing. Our joy and peace must be in Him and our abilities are the results of His grace. Study Deuteronomy 8:17.  Remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth! Seek God’s presence not His presents. Keep God first in your life and you will be amazed at what He will do for you.
