Deuteronomy 9:5-6 NKJV
It is not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart that you go in to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD your God drives them out from before you, and that He may fulfill the word which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Therefore understand that the LORD your God is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are a stiff-necked people.
When we experience God’s goodness we must not think it is because of how good we are. There are rewards for doing good and being faithful. However, most of the blessings we experience have nothing to do with us. We must remain humble and realize there are many reasons for our blessings. Some of us are blessed because of our godly parents. Some are blessed because of godly associations. All of us are blessed because our Heavenly Father is so good and He loves us so much. It is His goodness, not ours that accounts for the things we enjoy. Jesus said, “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” (Luke 12:32 NKJV).
