We must recognise the obstacles that brims our best judgement, and act consequently to develop a pathway to love.
It is realist to believe that everything that we do characterises our existence and leaves an imprint in the universe. So we must do our best to deploy our better actions for ourselves and for others leaving an exemplary way for the lost ones.
Prosperity is synonym to development and is attributed to what ever evolves. We may recognise a three that prosper, a garden, someone in good health, a population for different aspects.
Some people just have finance on their minds, which has nothing to do with the gospel. The gospel exist to save our soul or what is of humanity that can live with God; like love, charity, their, we can find prosperity and evolution. Even in the Old Testament money gains are denounce as futile.
Job1, 21 Ecclesiastes 5, 15 Everyone comes naked from their mother’s womb, and as everyone comes, so they depart. They take nothing from their toil that they can carry in their hands.
The Jews fought for their existence keeping their faith in high regards, recognising a just and unique God. Everyone is under the Law of Moses, the rich and powerful as well. So then earthly prosperity is associated with those that are bless and obedient to God who is faithful in is covenant: Deuteronomy 7,9 Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments. But as we have notice in Job, the richness of this world has nothing to do with the prosperity of the soul, because for no reason everything can be taken away from us where we have only our faith and love in God left.
Today, still, all the earthly possessions are available for the faithful, but giving it away or sharing is really what brings light to matter. The story of Job reminds us how vulnerable we are, that even the rich and charitable, faithful to God, can live sever draw backs, but true light will succeed to communicate the better way. Ephesians 5,8-10 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord.
John 1, 4-5 In him was life, and that life was the light of all people. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
1 John 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
Still there are those that are proud of their prosperity, they have gained their earthly possessions like Job, being faithful to God. At time righteous they now want to share their joyful way of life that comes from their faith and is second to the blood of Christ. It is up to each of us to determine our way to the light.
We must remember the Gospel, the force that surpasses the world, love in sacrifice, eternal life.
Luc10, 18-21 18 He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. 20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” 21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.
Since then, miracles are still happening somewhere trough faith but we must remember the following verse also. 1 Corinthians 13, 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Mathew 6, 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Bless the Lord!
We all have our ups and downs during a single daytime not to mention so many ongoing periods. From the sin of Adam and Eve we have the knowledge of good and evil and we know the difference of walking in the light or in darkness.
I think that light comes from doing what we know is right. Off course sometime we are so twisted that we do not even know what is right and do mistakes, not to mention the wrong we do on purpose…The blood of Christ is for everyone that repents and ask for help. The blood of Christ cleans away all mistakes or sins.
Light is what we feel when we do good deeds, it is the warmth inside of us like sun rays on the skin. Light is like the combination of energy, knowledge and blessing. Light is also present in gratitude, light is the truth that survives. Light is eternal life.
May the love of God shine on you!
