Deuteronomy 8:17-18
“You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.”
But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms His covenant, which He swore to your ancestors, as it is today.” 
Blessings come from God–both the blessings that arrive ready-made and complete…and the blessings that arrive through careful and wise use of the blessings He’s already given.
Forgetting the giver of the blessing does not lead to a blessed outcome. 
God has blessed me abundantly! He has blessed me with the resources that He’s placed in my hands, and He has blessed me with the ability to experience further blessing by wisely using the blessings I already have. All of it comes from God though!
I must make the daily decision to “remember the Lord my God”, from whom all blessings flow.
This is an active choice on my part, to walk in humility and gratefulness instead of pride and discontent.
God, thank you for the blessings you have given me! Help me to make the daily decision to remember you, and walk in humility before you. Thank you for not only blessing me with resources, but also with capacity and ability to grow into further blessing.
Help me to use these blessings wisely for your glory.
