HAVING THE BEST
Proverbs 19:14 NLT “Fathers can give their sons an inheritance of houses and wealth, but only the Lord can give an understanding wife.”
There are so many things that we can receive from fellow men and get with money and with our strength, but I’ve come to realize that there are certain things that only God can do for us. For instance, men can give you a job, but only God can give you fulfillment and a purpose in life.
Men can give you money, but the blessing of God makes rich without sorrow. Men can send you to school, but only God can give you wisdom. Men and money can get you the most beautiful women but only God can give you a happy home. Men can give you so many things, but only God can give you the power to enjoy them, peace of mind, long life, good health, joy and satisfaction.
Brothers and sisters, we will always need God. And it pays to wait for His own! Abraham and Sarah decided to get a child through Hagar when they got tired of waiting for God, but it only brought trouble. It was Isaac that made them laugh. God gives “good and perfect gifts”. Don’t be impatient. God will settle you in due time, with the very best for you.
