I’ve been warned against the “Health and Wealth” gospel so many times.
Basically, that just because I live a holy life and do the right things, it doesn’t mean that everything will work out for me and be great.
I’ve tried to be really cautious against unconsciously living with this mindset – expecting things to be perfect once I change my life and stop sinning in the areas where I’m weak.
So I have this in my mind, and sometimes I want to test myself with it. Like, I want to do the right thing, and have none of my problems change, and see if I can stand it…see if my faith falters or stands strong.
Sometimes, I find myself far from the Lord, or giving into some weakness, or I haven’t spent intentional time seeking His guidance and being in His presence. Once I get it back together and find myself on the right path again, I almost always end up with some real, material, visible blessings.
It’s actually kind of crazy. I haven’t really understood it until now.
It made me think that maybe the Health and Wealth thing wasn’t so far off.
Jesus really spoke to my heart about my awareness of His favor.
What my individual, personal issue is…
Is that during these times that I’m not intentionally spending time to soak, soar, and seek in and with the Holy Spirit…when I’m not consciously in communion with my Abba…
I am not aware of His CONTINUAL favor and blessings in my life.
Once I get straight with Him, I see so much clearer the areas where He is touching my life.
It’s not that the blessings come only when I’m seeking Him,
They are always there, I’m just not looking for them or seeing them.
Does that kind of make sense?
In short, I am an oblivious human being. I need to constantly be in communication and relationship with Jesus to have His eyes.
His eyes that are going to show me His new mercies, grace, love gifts, presence, beauty, and power that are all present in every day of my life.
I need more Jesus.
Wishing peace, love, and adventures in your lives, Friends.
This revelation came while I was spending time listening to the entirety of Steffany Gretzinger’s new album The Undoing. She is my musical soulmate, saying every unspoken word that’s in my heart with musicality that is straight from the heavens. She writes music and worships in every single way that I would want to.
Take an hour out of your day to just revel in the beauty of the Lord with this album as your soundtrack. Watch as the Lord’s favor surrounds you and breathes new life into your day. It is vulnerable, intimate, and breathtaking. Consider buying it and supporting this amazing artist!
And listen to it HERE.
