We can never forget that having God in our lives is our most valuable asset. Those who serve God can always expect that He will make a way for them. Israel received the good news that they were coming back to their homeland. But, after all the time that they were away from Israel, all the property records were lost. People were returning home to nothing.
God made sure that those who had dedicated their lives to serving Him would have all their needs met. In fact, God said that He would be their portion. This means that having God is even better than the finest land and possessions. How quick we are to forget that God is our source and He sustains our lives. We can get comfortable and think that our education, career, or social networks are the most important things in our lives. They can’t be.
None of them stands the test of time! Only God can be our source and all those other things are resources. Picture God as a flowing river and your job as just a pitcher. The source (river) is unlimited and the resource (pitcher) is limited. God possesses all we could ever need. Look to God to supply for you and He will. If you need joy, peace, hope, love, strength, forgiveness, healing or a fresh start, look to God. If you need a job, a house, a car or any other help, look to God. He can and will take care of His own!
