Every line is rich with meaning. The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. Trust Christ as your Good Shepherd—He promises to meet our needs. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He gives us rest and spiritual nourishment. He leadeth […] Blessings at God’s Table http://faithgateway.com/blessings-at-gods-table/ 2013-10-04T14:44:40-05:00 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

Besides, you look silly being run all over by a debt that you should be running. Remember that the next time you see a dog walking a man. That could be you and your debts. The Greatest Enemy of the Best - #6396 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-hard-times/the-greatest-enemy-of-the-best-6396 2011-08-08T11:43:50-05:00 We all have a hard time waiting for God to deliver what He promised. So we try to help Him. So, what's the greatest enemy of God's best? Impatience. We are the microwave generation. We get 30-second solutions to every problem in commercials. We like fast food.

You've worked harder, you've planned, you've used every trick you know. Could it be you're missing God's blessing on it?

Do everything in your power to take down the walls that might be costing you the blessing of almighty God. Keep checking until you understand what is there that's broken that God says needs fixing. Quit tinkering with the problems that really aren't the problem.

Window of heaven - a Christian perspective http://biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Malachi%203:10&version=KJV 2009-10-02T14:23:48-05:00 God stands ready to bless us with the vast resources at His disposal--all we need to do is ask. Here, God challenges Christians to ask Him for what they need, and see if He doesn't open the gates of heaven and flood them with blessings in response. Contempt - a Christian perspective http://biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans%202:3-4&version=NIV 2009-10-01T22:28:57-05:00 How do you respond to the blessings God showers down on your life? Are you thankful for them, and do you turn around and put them to good use in His service? Or do you show contempt for them by refusing to acknowledge them?
