Poor in Spirit #310

Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:3)

Only by recognizing and acknowledging your spiritual poverty will you possess the kingdom of heaven. Only by relying on God for spiritual healing from sin will you be fortunate and favored (“blessed”). The rule of God’s will in your life must prevail over self-importance and pride. If not, you will prefer to do your will instead of God’s will and miss eternal blessings. Be “poor in spirit” by depending on God to rule your life. Be sustained by Him each day and have heavenly riches.
