EXPERIENCE GOD IN SCRIPTURE
Matthew 5:3—God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for Him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. (NLT)
Luke 6:20—God will bless you people who are poor. His Kingdom belongs to you! (CEV)
When do you feel like you need God? How do you feel that need?
God says when we realize we are poor, it’s the first moment our hands can be fully open to receive Heaven. What about God’s Kingdom would you love to have belong to you?
Dear Father in Heaven, Your Kingdom sometimes makes me feel poor because I have to go without to see the heavenly gains You’re trying to add to me and to the world I’m in. Help me to be perfectly content with having You. Make my hands open to You so that I’ll realize my soul and life are as abundantly blessed as Heaven is making me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
