“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Revelation 3:17

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“You say, ‘I am rich and well off; I have all I need.’

But you do not know how miserable and pitiful you are!

You are poor, naked, and blind.”

.

– Revelation 3:17 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

This dire warning comes from God’s love, not His anger.

It is His affection that leads Him to reprove and correct His people

– in this instance, those who because of their worldly prosperity and contentment

are tainted with pride and conceit

and have also become spiritually lukewarm.

.

Sure, let us use the things of this world,

but we must put our trust in the things of eternity.

We can never be truly satisfied by material possessions,

.

Even if we owned every good thing in the world

we would not be happy and blessed,

for our blessedness and joy is in God, who created all things.

.

Our happiness is not in what is seen and admired by others,

but in what the good and faithful followers of Christ seek.

.

Our happiness is in what the spiritual and pure of heart sometimes experience in this life,

even though it is meant for the next.

.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

In You alone I place my trust, O Lord.
