INHERITANCE “WORTH CONSIDERING” 5/31/19 (over my desk this evening from Joel.)
“A good mans leaves an inheritance [of moral stability and goodness] to his children’s children, and the wealth of the sinner [finds its way eventually] into the hands of the righteous, for whom it was laid up.” (Proverbs 13:22, AMPC)
He Brings Treasures to the Righteous
Did you know there are resources and blessings laid up for the righteous? There are funds that will eventually be transferred over into the hands of the people who will use them for God’s purposes. In the Scripture, God is called “the Lord of the Sabbath.” That means He is “the God who puts His armor on and goes to war against those who hold His treasure from His purposes.” Just imagine God getting His armor on and going into the forces of darkness and saying, “Okay, I’ll take those funds. I need them for My children. I’ll take these businesses, these ideas, these contracts. They have My children’s names on them.” Friends, God is fighting your battles for you. He has immeasurable favor that He is going to transfer into the hands of the righteous. The key is to make sure you’re in the righteous group. Make sure you are honoring God with your life and keeping your heart pure. Let go of any weights or any sins that are holding you back. As long as you stay in faith and live righteously before Him, God has promised abundance.
A Prayer for Today
“Father God, thank You for fighting my battles. Help me to keep my heart pure so that I honor you with my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!”
This one from Joel ? got a knee jerk from me…. I have a big family and I am 86 now so way past the actuary tables. What happened with several people in my family, Mother, Wife, Aunt and such makes me sorta uncomfortable with distributions. I was minister at a funeral one time when the family of the rich man could hardly wait for the casket to be pushed off the boat for a burial at sea so they could get home to the stuff. Stuff really tends to bring out the Mr. Hide in folks. Sometimes it is really difficult to see where an inheritance will really help someone. Most now have no concept of save now and buy later and pay no interest. Or knowing the difference between needs and wants. With most hard earned savings, when it is distributed it is gone in less than a year. And mostly for stuff that does not help the Kingdom of God at all.
So take care with this one as you will need the Holy Spirit to give you real direction. If you have an estate to leave behind for distribution at your graduation be sure and give your trustee or executor some really good detailed notes as to your intentions. Sometimes even leaving funds to a local church ends up in new carpets or cushions for the pews and does little or nothing for HIS KINGDOM. So it seems to me it takes about as much wisdom to give anything away as it did to secure it. Greed and Covetousness are such elusive enemies.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
