Proverbs 28:19 states: He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread, but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
Are you thriving or trying to survive in your current situation right now? Yes! I am referring to your situation and circumstances today?
The author of this verse from the Bible does not go into details with his statement but he gives us a proverb to meditate on, teach others and to demonstrate it through out our lifetime and not our mouth only.
The word ‘tilleth’ means to work or serve. ‘His land’ represents the area or place where he finds himself presently. The verse gives a promise…’you are guaranteed plenty, and you won’t want’. BUT …the author tells us the flip side of this fact…those who chase, continue to go in circles chasing fantasies is guaranteed to be poor, broke, busted, disgusted and not to be trusted!
Principle: Mother Theresa is known by millions for feeding the poor in India however before she started to do that, she was living a comfortable life. But God changed her assignment, and she did it (tilleth her present place at that time) and still prospered.
Many poor people continue the cycle of poverty in their life because they chase fantasies that we call the Lottery every day. When will someone wake up and realize their chances of winning are 1:14 million?
Be wise today and may I remind you what my heavenly Father told me…keep hope alive. Hope, according to Romans 15: 4, means I have been given the gift to: (1) perseverance and (2) win no matter what happens when I intentionally meditate on the encouragement of the Scriptures.
