Have you ever had the thought, “Hmm, something just doesn’t seem right here.”
“I’m doing all the right things, reading my bible, going to church, I’m even tithing…so where’s my blessing?”
“Why am I still struggling?”
“Why is my money still tight?”
Of course it does, we’ve all had that convo with ourselves at some point.
Well, let’s talk about it, let’s examine and see what is really going on here so we can get it fixed.
First off, we usually have these thoughts when comparing ourselves to others, and it’s usually in the financial realm.
We see that so and so over there (who is about your same age) has a bigger house, nice new cars, and a high paying job or prosperous business, and we say to ourselves, (or really, to God) “What the heck? Why is he doing so well? I’ve been going to church longer than him, I’ve been giving to the poor, I give more money than him, I probably read my bible more than him too. What am I missing?”
Now again, I’ve said those exact same things many, many times.
And I think it’s a valid question.
When we see these results in someone else’s lives, you want those same results, therefore you want to make sure you are doing what is required to get those results.
Makes sense right?
But here’s what we must remember, there are certain things that can “block your blessings” and keep you from prospering to the full.
Thankfully the Bible lays them out for us. Let’s take a look at what the Word says so we can make adjustments going forward.
Don’t skim over these, dig into them.
I truly believe that we have deceived ourselves thinking these five “blessing blockers” don’t apply to us.
