As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.
This was the Bible reading on the Sabbath eve as a promise from God
The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.
I am moved to make all of you rich though in every way, so this lesson is an amplified way of understanding the above Bible verse.
The blessing can also be read The FAVOR of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no PROBLEMS with it.
This is interesting as the Prayer of Jabez author focused on the problems of asking a blessing of the Lord, in why he and others expected it. What was worse in this Wilkinson was teaching that you just have to expect more problems as God enriches your territory.
God though in Proverbs moving King Solomon teaches something completely different. We do not have to have more problems or sorrows, just because God gives us us things, for the blessing of the Lord is a miracle which brings with it Peace, Joy and Love.
The empowerment of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no distress with it.
How can it be though that we always expect something bad from God? It is because the root of it is satan. It was not God Who sent Paul to his death. It was St. Paul who desired to preach the word in Rome.
It was not God Who sent a great fish to ruin Jonah's day for preaching to Assyrians. It was Jonah who fled from the job God gave, and brought Jonah back. Remember the job was easy and it only took 3 days and it was a great success. It took longer and had all the drama because Jonah had his own ideas.
The Gifts of the Lord, fulfills abundantly, and He adds no anxiety with it.
As the Holy Ghost was moving Solomon, this was the Spiritual Truth in the Proverbs. We read in the later books that Solomon was thinking as humanity does, and this came from his being filled with Wisdom, he thought knowledge was better, and his thoughts had him accommodating foreign ideas from his foreign wives, and bringing those teachings to God's People, for their ruin.
Solomon was the most wealthy man in world ever, and he had absolutely no problems. The wealth God gave him though, was not enough, and he started taxing people for projects to validate his ego, and he did not trust God to protect it all, so Solomon impressed the people to serve him.
Instead of asking for volunteers and building by example as Nehemiah, Solomon gave orders and forced people, as he stood back and watched.
Sincerely my children and my brats, all of these people who are saying God called them to do thing, it is inside those people. I believe those people who are terrified of going to Africa, so do not ask God for things, confuse satan giving out signals, and in some cases it is God testing as "sell all you have and give to the poor", because most people always want to serve God on their terms, but do not like it when God gives them opportunities to use the money for others, as if they use it, then they are afraid if something goes wrong, they will not have the money for another fleet of cars.
Seriously it serves no purpose for God to make you poor, sick, in jail etc..., unless it is to wake you up to getting your priorities straight. There are things in all of us which have to be disciplined out of us, but this lesson is not about the faults we will overcome in Christ, this is about the Promise:
The Christ of the Lord, He enriches us, and He adds no burdens to us.
Remember that, Jesus said for us to follow Him, and take up the yoke, for His burden is light and His yoke is easy.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Matthew 11: 29:30
It is each of us who limits God, but Jesus Who is in us, is greater than satan or our doubts. We most instances are like Peter in the storm, sinking in the water in hopping out of boats thinking how great our faith is, and in a few steps we get ourselves into the messes we do, we are sinking and screaming for Jesus to save us, as how could He get us into this mess. The fact is, we jump out of the boat on our own accord, instead of awaiting for Jesus to take our hand and lead us.
Jesus knows we are the work of His hands. He knows we are weak in our persons, even if the Holy Spirit in us is answering our willingness to comply to the great things God intends to work through us. Do not loose faith though as though our hearts condemn us, Jesus is greater than our hearts.
None of us have a Jesus, looking to laugh at us. He knows what it is like to fall down, be spit on, laughed at, beaten, taken into custody, sentenced and abandoned and betrayed by everyone. He is not about to do that to you.
You be honest with Christ. If you do not want to do something, then tell God, not in rebellion, but in compliance that you will obey, but you are going to need more than a feeling inside of you that you should adopt Mexico, and a loud voice from God.
The only thing you have to not do is lie, reject God or run away. That is stupid as God already knows the Truth, knows you need Him and God is already there where you are running to, so you might as well deal with Him where you are and not in the bottom of a bottle of wine or in a hospital bed.
Those are the sorrows and anxieties we all face, but we must always return to the reality of the first Promise:
God gives us good things without limits, and in all His Gifts, there are no regrets in them.
Almighty Father, I ask for Your blessing in those things I am yearning for and those things I am unaware, as I receive them in Your Glorifying Yourself in Your Goodness. These gifts come from Your greatest Gift in Jesus. I ask for You to mind me to always honor all You give in remembrance of You, so that I will be kept from mistakes, in no regrets ever come from my actions. In Jesus Name I humble pray and submit this prayer to You, Amen and Amen
Now may the Peace of God, through His Christ and leading of the Holy Ghost, have you receive the Goodness of our God in every place in this life, keeping you in the True Faith, in God's Peace, Joy and Love as a Light in the dark world, unto Life Everlasting. Amen, Amen, Amen
God in you and go in Him.
