THE LORD SPOKE TO ME THIS MORNING :D
He reminded me that He blesses me in order that I might be a blessing to
others. Ever since I was introduced to the concept that God's promise
to Abraham to "be blessed...and to be a blessing" (Gen. 12:2)
is also for every believer, who are children of Abraham by faith, I
have loved that concept. I so want other Christians to embrace it, too.
God has blessed us in order to make us a blessing. Amazing.
His blessings don't stop with the first recipient, they are meant to be
passed on and on and on. We are created to be conduits of His
free-flowing gifts of love and grace.
It is awesome to think
that God's resources are limitless. They never run dry, they never
reduce or diminish. We keep giving, He will keep pouring to over flowing
and adding. We can't out-give God. The above verse promises me that if
I am a willing and free-flowing vessel of God's blessings and riches
that He will meet all of my needs out of His Heavenly storehouse of
"And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:19
He reminds me of how He has met my needs in ways I did not expect. And
not only meeting my needs, but heaping on extra blessings. He whispers
loud and clear - I AM. I WILL PROVIDE. FREELY RECEIVE,FREELY GIVE! I

God's blessings often come in roundabout ways from unexpected sources
in His own unique timing, yet He knows my needs better than I know them
myself. And when I choose to complain or grumble, I have closed my eyes
to God's daily gifts of grace. And when I am stingy, I am denying the
benevolence of my Almighty God. So, why not continue to give and give,
because only then will I continue to receive from the Heavenly
Storehouse. And, who does not want heavenly riches?
you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of
the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night
will become like the noonday.
"The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.
"You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." - Isaiah 58:10-11
