I read an article about famous singers and the homes they live in. It was titled “Take a Look Inside Mansions of your favorite celebrities”. One of the most expensive home belonged to Jon Bon Jovi. Some of you may not even know who he is, but the $42 million-dollar home spells out just how well he’s done, both as a singer and as an investor.
I think about my precious cousin who passed away just about a month ago. He was always saying he didn’t want a mansion; he just wanted a cabin on the back side of heaven. For him that cabin was a real dream home.
Oh beloved, we are blessed in America to get to make a living and make a life. Depending on how you were raised, your home may seem like a mansion. Depending on your good luck and skills, you could literally live in a mansion here on earth. But your life is not bound up in your house or your lands or your investments. Isn’t that a blessing? Free to do all that and be wise in your finances, yet not bound to produce in order to be on a list of mansion dwellers either here on earth or in heaven.
You, precious one, are rich beyond measure. You are saved and sealed for eternity. You get to live your life heavenly minded instead of earthly bound. Your life isn’t ever going to be spiritually measured by earthly means. Isn’t that refreshing? You aren’t just prepped for heaven; you are provided for here. And God’s provision is beyond your wildest imagination. He promises that even your basic needs are met according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. As you struggle through the lean years whether financially, spiritually or emotionally – you can rely on God. Maybe yesterday you melted down through the feelings that ranged from “God is so good” to “Where is God?” You can be assured beloved, that God is good! You woke up this morning and that’s a direct provision of the Most High and given to you to live for Jesus today! Stop living in the wishes of somebody else’s dream. And ask God to give you God sized dreams that you can pursue with Holy Spirit anointing! You are a child of the Only Living God! And a born-again believer of the Only Living Savior! And filled with the Comforter who is the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead! That’s rich! That’s amazing! That’s unbelievable!
God loves you and He’s for you. Always. In spite of the troubles you face. No matter what. It’s time to run to Him this morning and pour out your cares on Him and ask Him to fix your messes and restore your spiritual eyesight. And live, mighty ambassador of Christ, in the light of your riches in faith!
