Why Would You Live Your Life Without Benefits?

Why Would You Live Your Life Without Benefits?

Imagine working all your life for a company that gave you a paycheck and nothing else. I mean, nothing else.

  • No Vacation,
  • No Insurance
  • No 401k
  • No Sick Days
  • No Retirement
  • No Continuing Education Courses.

There is not much there to attract a worker of quality. A company that doesn’t care much for it’s employees, is doomed.

No one is thrilled to spend their life working and living without benefits.

Psa. 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

David said that God loaded us down with benefits every day. Has anyone been noticing what God has been doing for you? He doesn’t let you live for him without benefits.

There are no benefits like the ones God gives His children. Why is anyone willing to live without them in their life?

Benefits Like:

  • Forgiveness
  • Healing
  • Guidance
  • Protection
  • Provision
  • Comfort
  • Defense
  • Blessings
  • Strength
  • Daily Needs Met
  • Answered Prayers
  • Loving Kindness

There is no future in living for the Devil. He pays no benefits. Everyone loses. His pleasure is known to be very temporary, and afterwards very painful.

Psa. 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

There were so many benefits coming his way that David tried to figure out how to thank the Lord for them. He asked the rhetorical question that we must all answer.

Psa. 116:12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?

How do I thank God for His benefits? Just saying thank you doesn’t seem like it is enough.

I Thank Him With My:

  • Obedience. Keeping His Commandments
  • Submission
  • Love
  • Separation from the World
  • Living A Holy Life Pleasing Unto Him
  • Tithe And Offerings
  • Praise
  • Worship That Is Whole Hearted

What would your life be without the daily blessing and benefits of God? Never stop thanking Him. Never stop looking for ways to let Him know how grateful you are.

Rom. 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
