Sometimes it’s Right in Front of our Face

At times there are things in our life that we have had for years but we never realize its value. I’m talking about blessings that come directly from God, yet we still fail to see them. So what happens when we fail to see the ways that God has loved us? Does He take the gifts back? Not necessarily (Luke 6:35). If God stopped giving gifts based solely upon our reaction, the world would cease to see the sun, and the fact that we have air to breathe, water to drink, food to eat and clothes to wear reveals that He cares for us. If we gave as much credit to God as we gave to our “hard work” how many of those “little things” do you think we would forget about it? What good thing do we have that didn’t first come from His hand? Nothing! Still, often times we think if we only had a little more, then we’d be happy. Begotten by God and we look to the world to provide! A son and daughter of the king and we think we’re paupers. That is one easy thing to do, right? Yes, whosoever will, we can all come to God, but only the one who believes will exit this world and enter in to that heavenly kingdom to live with Him. If we looked for things the way we should would we not find more joy – would we not look less to what is going to perish? We love God, but could we love Him more? Have you ever asked yourself that question before? Everlasting blessings and eternal life (John 3:16) are often times right in front of our face, but we don’t see them because we’re not looking! Go back and read all of the words that are in bold to see how easy they are to miss! EA
