Is there any anxiety in your heart right now (we have been talking a lot about money)? If so, take 2 minutes to “cast your cares on Him, because He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). Then, read the passage below using your Inductive Bible Study Insert:
Yesterday we saw that that God of the Universe wants to have a “covenant” relationship with you. That’s beyond amazing! But have you ever stopped to wonder, “what does God, get out of this deal?” He knows the human race. The first 11 chapters of Genesis have been just a disaster for humanity. The human race has done nothing more than fill God with heartache and show Him ingratitude and continue falling into corruption and sin. So again, what does God get out of this deal? Cause it looks like He’s getting cheated!
But this is so amazing: do you know what God wants? Do you know what God gets out of this covenant? He gets someone to bless (read the passage above again to see this). He gets someone to pour out the affection, warmth and love of His heart.
What is going through your heart right now as you consider that God desires to BLESS you through His relationship with you? Pray to Him about that today.
