Different Level Of Blessings?

Leon Fontaine Devoted

Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32 (NKJV)

Have you ever heard someone comment, “They are so blessed,” when they are jealous of someone else’s life? It’s much like when a child accuses their parents of playing favourites.

God never plays favourites. He doesn’t bless one person more than another. That’s not how He works! His blessings have been poured out equally to every member of His family and for every area of our lives.

When Jesus died on the cross, He took all sickness, disease and poverty and replaced it with only blessings. As believers, we are equally blessed and His blessings cover every area of our lives. That being said, it doesn’t always look that way. One couple has a great marriage and another struggles. One seems lucky in business; another has luck too, but it’s all bad. Life can seem unfair, but we have to be careful that we don’t blame God for everything when we really should be giving Him the glory for everything.

Sometimes it comes down to skill level. You may have developed business skills but not relationship skills, for example. I’m not saying that every bit of trouble you hit is your fault or it is a result of a lack of skill on your part. Sometimes things happen in this lifetime that can’t be avoided. However, don’t blame God. He doesn’t make some people’s lives easier and others harder.

Jesus died for you and you can and should claim every promise in the Bible as yours. You are blessed.
