"And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us." -Romans 5:5 (NIV)
I was recently listening to an interview with musician Robert Plant. In the interview he said that, "Wealth is not what we have, I view wealth as a state of mind." We don't need a lot of "stuff" to be happy, but beyond just being a state of mind, wealth may also be a state of our hearts!
The Lord our God provides us with wealth and fills our hearts with love and hope. When we focus on what is in our hearts instead of on stuff, we can begin to see the wealth that we receive from God. We can have hope in His promises and the blessings we receive. We can find comfort in His love and learn to love through Him. By allowing our hearts to be filled with God's love and hope, we can live in an eternal state of wealth provided by God!
Live in a state of wealth when you allow God to fill your heart!
Thank You for the love, hope, and blessings that fill my heart and life. Help me to always turn to You instead of to the stuff of this world. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
