Do not be afraid when one becomes rich, When the glory of his house is increased; For when he dies he shall carry nothing away; His glory shall not descend after him. Though while he lives he blesses himself (For men will praise you when you do well for yourself), He shall go to the generation of his fathers; They shall never see light. A man who is in honor, yet does not understand, Is like the beasts that perish.
-The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him and delivers them. It is better then to delight our hearts in the Lord than to pursue evil. The evil man is devoid of wisdom and perishes like a beast; with no hope. His glory increases while he lives and diminishes when he passes on. Like a passing storm; his glory is very noisy while he lives but he will quickly be forgotten. He will depart to the generation of his fathers and their light will be filled with darkness. As we came with nothing to this world; we will carry nothing when we depart. Let him who glories then glory in the Lord, rather than in riches, wisdom and might. That he knows the Lord who exercises loving-kindness, judgement and righteousness in the earth (Jer 9:23-24). It is vital to ask ourselves, what is the most important thing in our lives and what do we desire most. If it touches on pride and materialism; it will eventually leave residues with bad taste in the mouth. But if it focuses on the love of God; then it builds up the spirit and leads to everlasting life through Christ our Saviour. Jesus calls us to carry our own crosses and die to self; so that He may be glorified in us. And as He increases we may decrease. Through submission to Him then the Holy Spirit uses us as His vessels to bring glory to Him Who is Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent; forevermore.
Holy holy holy are You Lord God Almighty; Who was, Who is and Who is to come. Lord You are merciful and Your loving-kindness endures to all generations. Thank You Jesus for loving us with Your everlasting love. Deliver us from pride, self exultation, love of money, fear and all evil things in our hearts that are not from Your Kingdom Lord, we humbly ask You. May we decrease as You increase Jesus. Fill our hearts with Your love, humility and wisdom Holy Spirit that we speak life and only do according to Your will. Many are the plans in a man’s heart but God You ordain his steps; ordain our steps Dear Father and heal the hearts of those who do not fear You. Help us to only focus on the things above and seek Your face at every moment of our lives. Draw us closer to Yourself Holy Spirit and unite us with one another through Your love. Thank You Lord for the gift of salvation and for expanding our boundaries; for Your blessing for us is eternal. All glory, honor, riches, wealth, wisdom, power, blessings and praise belong to You Jesus, now and forever. Amen
