The other day, while I was praying, I said this to God and was taken aback by how profound it was. Until I confessed it, I had never really thought of God that way before. I mean, He is my Wealth! How many people can say that and really mean it?
I am not saying that God is my Provider… Of course He is, and many know and confess the same. Nor am I saying that He is my Provision… But in all sincerity, and totality, He is my Wealth!
It’s one thing to look to God as your Provider. By that, you communicate that you still lack what you need. To see Him as your Provision, also suggests that He is what you need for now. However, when He is your Wealth, He is everything to you that is valuable, and all that you need and want.
I mean, just simply having Him in your life makes you RICH, without any other provision!!! You are not in need, because you have Him. You are not in want, because your wealth is encompassed in Him. Regardless of your financial or medical circumstances, your life is full and beautiful, because God is your Wealth. Whether or not He provides or heals your physical body – you are CONTENT and BLESSED to have Him ONLY!
Do you get me? I mean, do you really get me? Do you have Jesus? Do you know just how wealthy and blessed you are? You have indeed found the Pearl of Great Price, spoken about in Scripture. The Pearl that caused a merchant to sell all he had to possess it (Matt 13:45-46)!
However, many people don’t realise this. They discard their Pearl, in discontent, as they search for glass and stones to make their lives more beautiful. They sacrifice their true enduring Wealth, for what will perish in time.
If you’re still waiting for God to bring you wealth, then you are blind like them. You don’t know what you have. If you are miserable because you are sick, perhaps a recognition of your true Wealth will heal your body, as it heals your mind and heart.
Let my confession be your reality too. Don’t worry about your life. If you have a firm recognition of the value of Chirst in your life, you are the richest and healthiest you will ever be.
