  • Tinashe Bande on Proverbs 10:22
    This verse is a reminder of what God 's blessing is capable of, materially. Contrary to the popular unbiblical view that being poor is a sign of spirituality, God blesses those who know Him. Just like He did in the days of old to those who loved Him, like Abraham, Jacob and Solomon, God is capable of blessing one beyond measure, for His glory.

  • Julian on Proverbs 10:22
    The grace unmerited, unearned favour of God contains the fullness of his blessing for all mankind. Consequently our toiling, self effort and worldly striving can neither add to that blessing or disminish it. Our role is to receive the fullness of his unearned favour by faith in his word and His innate goodness.

    doesn 't the holy spirit gives us one understanding or is he not been listened too...this answer came through the Revelation of the Holy Spirit when God blesses you you should have questions,disappointment,sorrow etc.about what you have received e.g.lets say someone give you something and it is not up to slandered new or you had to fight over it,usable you have to fix it,second hand etc....all that will bring sorrow,b to you,but God 's blessing is first of all PURE..
