Proverbs 10:22

“The blessing of the Lord makes one rich,

And He adds no sorrow with it.”

“To receive riches from our GOD is to be blessed especially when having the riches without mental, emotional, physical sorrow is even a greater blessing.”

Jas 1:17

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning”.

There are many rich people who are simply miserable and are burdened with anguished sorrow because of their riches. Here are biblical examples :

Lot’s choice of land was clothed in covetousness, Genesis 13:10 – 11, 2 Peter 2 : 8, Genesis 19 : 15. King Ahab wore a crown but lay on his sickbed with the spirit of discontent. Lastly, the rich man that rejected Jesus’ instruction to sell his riches, give all the wealth to the poor and follow Jesus, became a source of his everlasting sorrow.

There are many who have been blessed with riches, and are wise enough to know and receive those riches as GOD’S blessing 1 Kings 21 : 4. The world strives with all their might to get riches, once it is gained many are fearful in keeping it and are tormented with worry about losing it. The child of GOD that He blesses with wealth, it comes with no trouble, fear, sorrow or guilt. Physical wealth is not a sin to attain, it is a sin when the wealth you obtain transforms your heart to sinful lusts! The wealth is for the expansion of His Kingdom on earth,to fulfill the GREAT COMMISSION and care for the sick; poor, fatherless, widow, abandoned, imprisoned, rejected, the lost!

Happy Monday in Yeshua! Blessed new week!

In His Name,
