053013: Loaded

 

I once received a new position on a job that came with a significant bump in salary. Although the raise wouldn’t take effect immediately, the promise of its coming was enough to excite me. I hadn’t seen a penny of that money yet, but I felt better and more positive about my position at the company. I felt my bosses believed in me and I was determined to earn my salary by performing well at my post daily. I was poised to make more money than I had ever made in my life. A great job, a fantastic work atmosphere, incredible co-workers: I was loaded.

That evening, my devotional reading confirmed my attitude by adding a spiritual reminder of the “raise” I was given each and every morning. Psalm 68:19 says, “Blessed by the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation!” (NKJ) Thanks to the provision of salvation, I walk in the daily benefit stream of God’s blessings. I may not see or experience “ups” every day, but the promise of their coming is enough to excite me. I am a daughter of the King of Kings. The owner of a cattle on a thousand hills provides me with both prime steak and a panoramic view. I am filled with the best and can see the best all around me. I’m loaded.

Take stock today of who you really are and what you really have because you are a child of the King. When all is said and done, I’d venture a guess that you’ll say like I have come to say, “I’m loaded!”
