In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s easy to get caught up in worry and stress. But if we take a step back and reflect on the teachings in God’s Word, we are reminded that we are truly blessed by God. Matthew 6:26-30 reminds us that just like the birds of the air and the flowers of the field, God takes care of us because we are valuable to Him. So, how can we live a life that is too blessed to be stressed?
- We are too blessed when we never forget that our blessings come from God.
Deuteronomy 8:11-12 emphasizes the importance of remembering the Lord and obeying His laws. By acknowledging that our blessings come from God, we open ourselves up to receiving even more. Let us not forget His benefits and express gratitude for all He has provided (Psalm 103:2).
2. We are too blessed when we release the pressure of pride.
Pride can hinder our ability to appreciate our blessings fully. Deuteronomy 8:14-15 serves as a reminder that we should not become proud or forget where we came from. Remembering our past and the hardships we have overcome helps us remain humble and thankful for God’s grace and provision.
3. We are too blessed when we pass the test of trust.
Trusting in God is crucial in living a life free from stress. Deuteronomy 8:16 speaks of God testing His people in the wilderness to build their trust in Him. Proverbs 3:5-10 urges us to trust in the Lord with all our hearts, acknowledging Him in all our ways. When we surrender control to God, He guides our paths and grants us true strength and wisdom.
4. We are too blessed when we remember the Lord with the tithe.
Deuteronomy 8:17-18 reminds us that our success is not solely our doing, but it is God who enables us to prosper. By honoring Him with our tithes and offerings, we demonstrate our faith and acknowledge His provision. Malachi 3:8-14 highlights the blessings that come from being faithful in giving, assuring us that God will open the windows of heaven and pour out blessings upon us.The Tithe (10%) is not an obligation, it’s an opportunity.
In conclusion, living a life that is too blessed to be stressed requires us to remember the source of our blessings, release pride, pass the test of trust, and honor the Lord with our tithes. When we adopt these principles, we open ourselves up to experiencing true life and abundance in every aspect. Let us always remain grateful for the blessings we receive, trusting in God’s provision, and using our resources to do good and bless others. Remember, we are too blessed to be stressed.
As Psalm 24:1 reminds us, “The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.”
