When we walk according to the words of God, daily seeking after Him, we will be strengthen and we will prosper. Others may look at us and think, it doesn’t seem possible we are benefitting because we may still appear to be poor and weak.
The beauty of serving God, is that we through faith are serving someone we cannot see. He (God) can also strengthen us in ways that cannot be outwardly seen by others. God will bless us in any way He sees fit, He may do this physically and He can also bless us with an abundance of Spiritual wealth, which is not readily seen by others. We will then be well grounded to face whatever the enemy (Satan) may throw at us.
When he delights
In law of God
Walking According To God’s Law:
Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the [a]ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he [b]meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the [c]rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper. Psalm 1:1-3
Planted by river
Have fruit to harvest
When we do not walk in accordance to the will of God, we are showing by our actions that we want no part of Him. As a result, though we may have our riches and everything we could ever want right now, this period is all we have, as we will never be able to inherit eternal living. This is all according to the word of God. (See scriptures below.)
Blown by wind
Away from eternal inheritance
The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish. Psalm 1:4-6

Amen! Leola, your choices of Scripture and your poetry series remind me of how God plants the seeds of faith to be harvested in due time. God remains in control.
Amen, He certainly is in control, and in time we will come to see all that He has in store for us.
