Psalms 84:11 For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.
One definition of grace is a manifestation of favor, especially by a superior.... one definition of glory is a state of great splendor, magnificence, or prosperity. This verse says that God gives us favor.. great splendor, and prosperity. God gives us these things!! One definition of grace is undeserved merit... even tho we don't deserve it God gives us favor... great splendor and prosperity. This verse goes on to say that the Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Just because God loves us, he wants to give us good things.. God wants to withhold nothing from us!! We limit our gifts from God... God wants to give us all that we could hope to imagine. We just have to take the time to learn what God sees as right... that takes time and effort...that takes spending time with God... that takes taking to God... listening to the Holy Spirit. God knows our steps before we step them... our thoughts before we think them. God knows when giving us too much, too fast will send us down a wrong path. We have to learn to do what is right... we have to know right from wrong deep down in our soul.... the more we learn and grow in good... the more God puts the desire in our heart do do what pleases him (Philippians 2:13). We just have to keep on seeking after God, then God will put it in us to do good... then God will shower us with good things... because he loves us so very much. When we keep our eyes on God, our focus on God, our hearts on God... God does the rest!! Matthew 6:33 puts is as simply as this, Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need." We so have to go from wanting God when we think we need God to seeking after God in all that we do. Starting our days with God, ending our days with God...and talking to God all through out the day inbetween. The more we keep our eye on God, the more we seek after God the better and better our lives get. God wants to hold no good thing from us... God has so much to give to us, so much... much more than we can even think to imagine... our part...is to seek after God.... seeking after God is the always the right thing to do.
