GOD PAUSE: Did you know that you are a very wealthy person? Well, you are! And I really mean what I'm saying. Solomon says in Proverbs 10:22 that “The blessing of the LORD is what makes someone rich, and He doesn't add sorrow or pain to it.” I had to laugh when I was reading the story of Balaam who was sent to curse God's people Israel. The Bible says “Meanwhile, it was obvious to Balaam that the LORD was quite happy to bless Israel” (Numbers 24:1). So here's the deal --- you just can't mess with what God chooses to bless! And, my dear friend, God Himself chooses to bless you today --- with all that Jesus died on the cross to give you. Enjoy, O blessed one, the goodness of the Lord! Today and always!
