From the Hand of God

Ecclesiastes 2:24-26 (KJV)

There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.

For who can eat, or who else can hasten hereunto, more than I?

For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.

Both provision and the ability to enjoy provisions are blessings from God. Without God, we would not even be able to digest the food that we worked so hard to gather.

When we accept that all we have comes from the hand of God and are content with whatever He has given us, we will then find peace and satisfaction. Keep God first in your life because the key to living well is to live a life which is pleasing to Him.

God Gives the Increase

2 Kings 4:2 (KJV)

And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.

God can take what looks insignificant and turn it into something extraordinary. When we lift up all that we have to God, He can bless us mightily. A little goes a long way with the Lord’s blessing.

God’s Economy

Proverbs 11:25 (KJV)

The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.

God’s economy is not like that of the world. Though it may seem contradictory, when we help others, we will be helped ourselves. Don’t be afraid to be generous with your time, talent and treasure. The Bible tells us that God prospers charitable people.
