From the Prayer Notebook:
PP 4.19; EP 3.20 2C. Earthly Possessions (temporal)
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
God supplies all needs plus more: exceeding abundance beyond!
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
My earthly possessions for which I am extremely grateful:
What this Section Meansabout Praying through the Lord’s Prayer:
God, later in the model prayer as we shall see, reminds us that ‘daily’ is His way of providing our "needs" – ‘daily bread.’ But, in truth, we see that God is generous to us! He gives us far more than our absolute’s require: Adam and Eve had in the Garden prepared for them every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food;
The Psalmist was reminded of what he had because of his obedience to God’s "precepts"
One day as I read this verse I realized all the things that I then possessed – I began a list of those things I owned – were things I had because I had obeyed God’s Word and had received God’s blessings because of God’s favor on my life. If I had not obeyed God’s will through the years, I would not have the same valuable things I have today.
Why not write a list of things you possess and see if any of those are because of choices you’ve made that pleased God?
Make a list of EVERYTHING YOU HAVE EVER OWNED, and how long you enjoyed it, and then think about what God had to do to enable you to come to possess it and furthermore even to enjoy it!
