You Deserve The Best
Matthew 7.11 "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!"
When Jacob and his family moved to Egypt, Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Your father and your brothers have come to you. The land of Egypt is before you. Have your father and brothers dwell in the best of the land; let them dwell in the land of Goshen.” They dwelt in the best part of the country!
God gave the Israelites the best place: Moses said to them; "For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper." Wow! Hallelujah!
As a child of the Almighty God, I need you to understand that nothing on this earth is too good for you; nothing is too expensive for you; nothing at all! Do you know who you are? You are the child of the King! A joint heir with Christ! Never be "shy" about asking God for the very best things! Psalm 84.11 says, "For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly." You deserve the best job, the best spouse, name them; receive them in Jesus name!
