The Better Blessing

On a daily basis The Lord blesses us in more ways than we can count.  Many times we are looking for the big blessing and miss the little and important things that The Lord has done for us.  We should never overlook the little things that The Lord does in our lives, because it is those little things that sprout up into big blessings.  When we concentrate on the big things and do not see them coming as quickly as we want them to, we will take matters into our own hand and start trying to make ways for ourselves only to discover that when we do we find ourselves in places that we need The Lord’s help to get us out of.  

The Scripture reminds us that, better is a little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble with it.  I encourage you today to be thankful for the seeming little things that The Lord does in your life, because it is through those little things that we realize it was better than great things that come with a lot of trouble.  Learn to be content with the blessings that The Lord has placed in your life, and never compare what The Lord is doing in your life with what someone else has, because you never know what they went through to get to where they are.  Make up your mind that anyway The Lord blesses you that you will be satisfied with that, because little becomes much when you place it in the Master’s hand.  I am so grateful for every blessing that The Lord has placed in my life and am grateful for every way He makes for me.  

Since I am blessed with what The Lord has done in my life I know for sure, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Lord thank you for every blessing that you have poured into my life, and I know that they are all great. In Jesus Name Amen.
