What’s better than great wealth and good health?

Suppose you have wealth, you have good health, you have peace of mind, you are not worried about anything but you lack wisdom. Can you be considered to have a perfect blessing? No. Proverbs 4:7, Ecclesiastes 7:12, Proverbs 1:32, Luke 12:16-21, Psalm 111:10.

Several people have blessings of all sorts but because they don’t fear God, God called them fools.

Suppose you are wealthy, you are healthy, nothing is bothering you, you consider yourself a wise man but you have no hope, is your blessing perfect? No. Proverbs 13:12, Ecclesiastes 9:4, Job 11:18. When you have hope, you are secured. It doesn’t matter what you have, if you have lost hope about something, you might even take your own life.

1 Kings 19:1-4. A life without hope is a hopeless life. Is a life without joy, a life without anything. Your blessing is not complete if you have no hope.

Solomon had everything, 1 Kings 10:23-25, 1 Kings 4:24, Ecclesiastes 12:8.

The beauty of being in Christ.

It is in Christ alone you have perfect blessing. In Christ you have wealth. When we talk about wealth in Christ, it is not how much you have that matters, you are a wealthy man when all things you want are met. Philippians 4:19.

In Christ you have health guaranteed. 1 Peter 2:24. Provision has been made for your healing, for your health. He took a strip for our health.

Through Him we can have peace. John 14:27

In Him, you have wisdom. 1 Corinthians 1:27, 1:30

In Him you have Hope. Colossians 1:27

In Him you have the hope of a glorious end. John 14:1-3.

In Him, We have Joy like a river, Joy without any stain, John 16:24.

In Christ, you have perfect blessing, that is if you just have Christ. Everything is in Him including the ability to have dominion. Having dominion means you are in control, you are in charge of everything. Philippians 4:13.
