God is pleased that you have things. God has provided you and every resource you have and the ability to receive even more. God wants this to be the very best year of your life.
You are at liberty to enjoy yourself. You are free to come and go as you please. You are free to spend your money as you see fit. You are to have dominion over the things of the earth - not the other way around.
Be happy. Be joyful. Be blessed. Some of you must be thinking, am I hearing things? No. This is the truth. Don’t allow anyone to steal your joy of having what you have. Part of experiencing inner peace is fully understanding your rights in Christ. So much emphasis has been put on duty, obligation, sharing and giving that many people have been worn down to believe that if they have things they need to hide them. Oh how we have been duped.
It is not Jesus that is making you feel guilty that you don't have it as bad as the next guy/girl. It is not a god thing to wallow in the mire."
