I think this verse says it all. God is telling us not to always want want want and be content with what we have. He knows our needs, when we need something He will send it to us by using others to bless us. Not very often do you hear about people having something physical just pop into their existence from nowhere right? God is not a genie and this is not about magic. I've experienced some out of the blue blessings before but I've never seen a Lincoln drop out of the sky into my presence. It takes faith to believe in the Lord. Either you have faith in Him or you don't, there is no "I'll think about it" mode. John 4:24 tells us that God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. Hebrews chapter 11 is loaded with faith scriptures. You cannot serve God without faith in Him. Take a special look at Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
It specifically tells us that you will not please God without believing that He is. That means that you believe in and of Him, you tell others about Him, you are not embarrassed of Him and you spend time with and talk to Him.
Receiving the White Stone means that we have to hold still and listen to the whispers of the Holy Spirit Who speaks to our spirit. We have to get into the Word and learn it daily. If you need help, ask someone for it or go to a bible study either online or in the church of your choice. Revelation 2:17 says also that God will not only give us a White Stone of favor but a new name that no one else will know but us. How can you understand your new name if you don't study His Word or iisten to His voice? Let me give you a description of the White Stone.
A white stone was used to gain admission to certain events in Roman times. That would imply that those who overcome will be granted admission to the Kingdom. Do you see the comparison here? I am talking spiritually and not just in the natural. Also people who did others a favor in some kind of way was given a white stone which was akin to an endless Mastercard in our day. Wherever they went or wherever they needed to stay, they did not have to pay a fee or charge to get services such as hotels (Inn's), food, transportation, food, etc.
According to David Stern's Complete Jewish Bible, which is a Hebrew printing of God's Word, it tells us that the meaning is that God will give us the 'right' to eat from the Tree of Life which is in Eden. Wouldn’t you love that?
- That the person is taken into an intimate state of friendship with him.
Accept your new life in Christ and live it in the joy of the Holy Spirit. I’ll leave you with the following scriptures if you’d like to write them down.
