God’s power, not our right.

Psalm 62:10-11 “Put no trust in extortion; set no vain hopes on robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them. Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God,” Brethren, David himself was a shepherd before he became a king. He confirms that our riches should be understood to be given to us by God. In today’s world, it’s hard not to think that we “deserve” a particular position, but remember that we were made to glorify the Lord, not obtain a job that pays. $70k annually with nice health benefits. I don’t think Paul cared about that-no it was about spreading the gospel and resisting the temptation to remain comfortable and self-seeking. Where are you today? Are you TOO worried about finances and idolizing money over God? Or are you trusting The Lord to do with you what He intends to receive glory through you from those around your everyday life? God bless you.
