simple thoughts

as I was worshiping this morning the thought of wealth and riches occurred to me.
I am rich, for what I have no man can buy. No billionaire, nor the Saudi princes with all their treasure can purchase what I have been given freely.
I am secure because no man ( or life event) can take it away from me.

I have been given three great gifts,
    Complete forgiveness for all my sins.
    The assurance of life everlasting in the presence of God.
    The responsibility to ask others to come along on this glorious path of life in Christ.

No wonder I rejoice, I dance, I fall to my knees in His presence.
I am humbled and lifted high by the same gentle hand of  a holy God.
No longer do I try to gain by my own works, I fully depend on Him for my worth
and rely on His strength working in me to accomplish what he wishes.

All praise goes to the Lord of Hosts, King of kings, and savior of my soul.

This is like apraise Psalm Davide.

Yes we are rich in Christ. We are complete in Him and we are seated in heavenly places as Ephesians says.

Rejoice in the Lord always.

Our circumstances cannot change our position in Christ
