All You Have -- From God
When you have entered the land the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance and have taken possession of it and settled in it . . . Deuteronomy 26:1
It all begins here—remembering that all we have has been given to us by God. Forget that and your whole attitude changes. This chapter will describe the impact there is when we remember. For now sit back for a moment and think it through. Everything you have from your life, health, family, home and wealth – all of these have been given you by God. Do you consider your life to be pretty good? Then thank God. Do you feel as if some things are lacking? Then look to God to provide. Either way, never forget that God loves you more than you could ever imagine. How important is this? Consider the notion of your being in charge of your life. You could thank yourself for all you have/don’t have and look within yourself to fix whatever is wrong. That would be a scary life.
