12I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little.
Can you struggle? Do you have the ability to live a content life off of nothing? Many of us would say yes, because of our struggles now, but if we have the ability to read this little blog note, then we are not as bad off as we think. If you and I can go once a month to a restaurant and eat and pay the bill, we are not as bad off as we think.
We must learn how to humble ourselves and live modestly before the Lord. Just because we have the option, we should never show boat what the Lord has given us, because, to whom much is given, much is required. There is also the Scripture about those who have much will be taken because we misuse our abilities and never give God glory for what He has Made available to us.
When we are in the middle of our struggles, we tend to be self centered. We work hard at making sure that we have all our essential needs and we do not tend to think of others and what they do not have.
I seem to recall as a boy growing up seeing my Grandmother help others even when we didn’t have enough to eat for ourselves and sure would extend herself to give to those who had less then we did.
There is always a place in time when you have to put yourself on the back burner, because someone else is a little bit lower on the totem pole of life. When you extend yourself beyond what your able and you live from the residual, God sees it and it is counted for righteousness.
It is important to our Spiritual growth, that we learn how to get by with what we need and not what we desire. We have to move away from fantasy faith living. People believing God for fancy stuff over useful items that help win this war.
We loose to the eyes and freshly desires, when we are focused on our personal wants and not what God has supplied for us. In the field of Spiritual battle the Lord has given us what is needed to pull in the harvest and to plant new seedlings that we may see growth is the Eternal promised family.
Father Abraham was given a for sure promise, and God Creator is not a man that He cannot carry out what He said.
We need to get on board now, and stop living our lives outside of the faith view. We cannot serve two masters. One being the Eternal Father and King. The other being our own selfish greed.
