Ecclesiastes 5:19 When God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work -- this is a gift of God.

Yes, you attended classes to graduate with your degree. You worked really hard to purchase your house. You saved your money so that you could retire comfortably. Yes, you did all of these things, but it was because God planted His gift of favor in you to complete them. Remember, the gift isn't what you accomplished…The gift IS GOD in you.

Awesome blog today. I was immediately reminded of Deu 8:19. Its so easy to think that "we" obtained our wealth but, it was He that gave us the ability to get that wealth! Its not contractual but rather inherited convenant. And that convenat still stands right now even in this day!

I enjoy your blogs! Keep sharing the truth, Sister!

His love,
Kimberly
