There are many who are blessed, but are living a life of sorrow.
However, if it is the blessing of the LORD, it makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.
For many in the modern world, with riches comes perplexity or sorrow. Although they have a good job, or a dream career, through this they achieved great deeds, but with the achievements and riches comes an increasing void. A void of sorrow, wherewith the riches cannot fill, the mind is left in a state of bewilderment.
So then, what shall it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, but lose his soul in sorrow?
The soul was created for God, until it is reunited with God, it will never find true rest. Even for the Christian, there are some of whom their understanding of God is nothing but a head knowledge, but inside they are at war, a war without an agenda. Therefore, they are the victims within themselves.
The time is now, to make things right with the Lord, without the head knowledge, but the heart knowledge.
With head knowledge, we see things and even sometimes feel things. Nevertheless, it doesn't bring about any change, but with heart knowledge we accept that which we perceive, and we understand.
Those who are of head knowledge, they trust in their willpower rather than God’s will. For they do not trust in the righteousness of God, but in their own righteousness. (meaning they do that which they think is right for themselves) Therefore, whatever their struggle is, they try to do it on their own.
Head knowledge doesn’t bring about a change in the individual’s life. Though they accumulate knowledge, through reading, experience and the like, but the knowledge is stagnant.
However, the heart knowledge, is the knowledge of the heart. This is the kind of knowledge that changes who we are, it recognized that we cannot bring about a change alone, therefore, the heart sincerely reaches out to God.
Whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
This is the Call:
Dear God in Heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I'm sorry for the way I've lived, the things I've done. Please forgive me and cleanse me with your precious Blood from all unrighteousness. According to your Words (Romans 10:9) I believe in my heart God raised Jesus from the dead and He is alive. With my mouth I confess the Lord Jesus Christ as the Savior of my soul, at this very moment I accept Him as the Lord of my life. Right now, according to God’s word which cannot lie. I'm washed, I'm safe, I'm born again. I thank you Lord Jesus for dying on the Cross to give me a new life, an eternal life. Teach me your way that I may follow. Amen.
Now, the blessing of the LORD, it makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.
The Christian riches are not limited to things, but living a full life, of JOY, PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.
