And so he that had received the five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents:
behold, I gained beside them five talents more. His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou has been
faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of the Lord.
~ Matthew 25:20-21, KJV ~
Walking in obedience is paying attention to the smaller details. This is how we grow and prosper in all things. When we are faithful to walk according to His will, He will bless us and increase our faith, increase our grace, and increase our ability to bless others. He gives us a little bit at a time. As we serve Him, our responsibilities increase – so also will our duty to better serve Him. This is not just financial gain and blessings. It is spiritual gain and growth. It is increase in our discipline to follow him. Setbacks lead to greater victories. Declining our prayerful requests so that he may bless us with greater reward on a different request we may not have considered.
Seek God first and then all things may be added with good measure until our cup overfloweth with abundance and blessings. Those who seek to only gain financial security and fail to recognize setbacks, mindfully listen to hear the voice of God, and focus on their love for money, status, and affluence will fall miserably with their pride into the depths of humility.
Let us be faith in seeking God in great matters where we exercise our faith and be mindful and diligent in obeying the smaller matters He has called us to obey.
~ Today’s Prayer and Meditation ~
Heavenly Father, bless me as I walk in your way and truth. Let me be a continued light and blessing to others. As I seek you with my greatest desires, let me be mindful in obeying you in the smaller details of life. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Amazingly, Father does not fail anyone, No one. We or me, I failed me. Yet Father and Son have not, even though it might have been seen as if he had. Not! ever, even in poverty. Can one turn to Father and give it all to him to do as he pleases?
Luke 21:1-4, about that lady that put in two pence in the kitty, where others put in more than her.
Yet she gave it all, all that she had, including herself.
That is what Jesus pointed out to the Disciples.
At least is what I am seeing, and seeing to stand in it, Not that it is easy, it is not, while emotion(s) do try and do get in the way.
Now to me to not deny God, no matter what, one will see eventually, kind of like Solomon, when all he wanted was how to lead, people fairly.
And God gave him the wisdom needed to comfort and just be wise in answers, even though Solomon was not perfect, he had the desire to be led, and not be better than others
Amen to Father for including us each in Son upon beleif, even if one does not see it for awhile
