Self Awareness

God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
(Matthew 5:3)

How aware are we of God? Or should I ask, how aware do we want to be? Are we content to hold up in our own little world (our kingdom), or are we willing to break through the barriers than hinder us from experiencing the Kingdom Jesus wants to give us?

We can’t experience success without facing our failures. Pretense won’t hold up under pressure. God blesses those who realize their need of Him—not another person. People weren’t created for us to lean on them indefinitely. If we lean too heavily on someone else, they’ll eventually let us down or we’ll drain them emotionally. To realize our need of God opens the Kingdom of Heaven and brings His blessings on us.

Lord, I’m willing to be on Your operating table. Open my eyes to see what You already know.
