John 3:27 (NLT)
“John replied, “No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven.”

Have you ever known someone who you thought was really successful and wondered why not you? Sometimes, you may even think that other people are luckier than you or have greater access to opportunities. If we are not careful, a spirit of jealousy can creep into our hearts.
However, there is no need for us to envy the blessings of our neighbors. John 3:27 tells us that all blessings are given by God in His sovereignty. God provides for each of us exactly what we need.
God’s master plan is to bring about His divine purpose. Each of us has a unique part to play. Embrace the gifts and blessings that God has bestowed upon your life because nothing is received except through the perfect providence of God. To God be all the glory!
