The Right Amount from the Lord

The Right Amount from the Lord

A lady came to a study the other night, with this wonderful testimony of what the Lord said, to her while copying the Bible. In Proverbs 30: 8-9 Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, Who is the Lord? Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.
In our studies we ask the questions, what does the story teach and how can I pray this. She said, “The prayer was what’s already there, don’t allow me to have too much money, or I will forget you, and don’t let me get so poor that I would even think of stealing.” Her comment after that, was “I also need to be thankful for what the Lord gives me.” She was not able to attend her own son’s wedding, which is a big deal in Africa, she thanked God even though she stayed at home because in giving her a daughter in law, he had given her, her daily bread. Continue to pray that the Lord will open the eyes of the ones who seek him every morning.
