Genesis chapter 24 verse 1 reads “And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things.“.
Note carefully, as to the source of all the blessings that Abraham had. Many a times we mistakenly give importance to the ephemeral riches of this world as blessings that matter, and forget The One who blesses. This verse clearly identifies that the source of all blessings is the LORD God. It is Jehovah Jireh the provider of not only the mere elements of food and clothing that sustains life on earth, but also the provider of his Only begotten Son to take care of the problem of sin and death i.e., the provider of a Savior for the salvation of all mankind so that they can live with God eternally in heaven.
Points to ponder:
The supplier of all things for life on earth and for the one to come in heaven is the LORD God, our Father. Remember and recognize him with a grateful heart for He is the source of all blessings – physical and spiritual. Do you recognize the source of your blessings?
Genesis 24:1 (KJV)
