Ecclesiastes 2:24 So I decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to find satisfaction in work. Then I realized that these pleasures are from the hand of God.
Deuteronomy 32:49 Go to Moab, to the mountains east of the river, and climb Mount Nebo, which is across from Jericho. Look out across the land of Canaan, the land I am giving to the people of Israel as their own special possession.
Sometimes the difference between us and those who are rich is what we do with information at our disposal.
Genesis 37:8 His brothers said to him, “Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.

The fact that what you wanted most was found yet you still don’t have peace shows that what you need is God. Proverbs 15:16 Better is a little with the fear of the LORD, Than great treasure with trouble. There are millionaires sleeping on the hospital bed and unable to enjoy their money but you are healthy and think having money will make you happy. If you can wake up and can feel your legs, know that it’s grace. Its not how much you love God but how much He loves you.
Things should not make you who you are. Isaiah 55:1 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price.

When you see a successful person, try to find out the battles he won and the challenges that comes with it, to be where he is than to wish for the things he possesses. Matthew 20:22 But Jesus answered and said, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” They said to Him, “We are able.” You cannot own a supermarket and expect problems of a person owning a small shop. More blessings comes with challenges in that level.
