Thanks for working for me

You ever think about how it's not fair that people who work or live immorally and/or illegally can be so rich? We all have at one time thought how unfair it is that we are stuck saving and saving and they are out spending and spending.

Before you read further: this is not a post about how being rich on the inside is more important (even though it is) This is about God's promises to take the sinner's riches and give them to you!

Yes, in the Bible it says how God will take money out of the hand of the sinner and give it to the righteous. Let's turn to Job 27:16-17 "Though he heaps up silver like dust and clothes like piles of clay, what he lays up the righteous will wear, and the innocent will divide his silver." It doesn't stop there in Proverbs 13:22 it says"A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, but a sinner's wealth is stored up for the righteous." Just think about that. Do you believe that you not only can be financially blessed now but even in the future after you are gone? Start believing it. God is able to do more then you can imagine and He is using the sinner to provide it. "To the man who pleases Him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God."(Ecclesiastes 2:26)
What God did for the Israelites, He can do for you. "When the LORD your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build, houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant"

Omy. You know my mom used to say to this to us (my brothers and I) when we were younger. She always had a way to tell us how God would eventually bless our family (despite the crisis we were going thru then), that the devil is gonna be triumphed over. I believed my mom always knew what she was talking about then, even when I was still a little innocent child. Hehe. Thanks, telika. This is really inspiring. :)

Btw, about the Blogroll thing... I want to think that Blogger/Blogspot has become more advanced with its growing community of bloggers, but sadly, they do not have an easy-to-add blogroll feature in their CMS.. So, with blogspot, you may want to add your blogroll manually in your Template. Go to "Template" tab, then "edit current" template and add your links manually to your template HTML code. tsktsk. i think i should send a "suggestion" to blogspot! haha! :)
