[11/14, 5:17 AM] 919063: Say ‘God bless you!’

Thursday 14th November 2019

‘Whenever [you] bless…people…in my name, I myself will bless them.’ Numbers 6:27 NLT

God’s Word is impregnated with life, wisdom, truth, power and potential. When he created the world, he simply said, ‘Let there be.’ Every word he speaks – contains the power to create whatever he says. Every promise he makes – contains the seeds of its own fulfilment. Those seeds have a scheduled season for fulfilment in your life, and when they’re watered with confident, faith-filled prayer, standing squarely on the Scriptures and patiently awaiting God’s timing – his Word cannot fail. Once you grasp this truth, the words ‘God bless you’ become loaded! Speaking them releases God’s blessing into our lives. When you say, ‘God bless you,’ God backs you up. ‘Whenever [you] bless…people…in my name, I myself will bless them’ (Numbers 6:27 NLT).

So if you want to bless your loved ones, speak these words of blessing to them: ‘The Lord bless you and protect you…and be gracious to you…show you his favour and give you his peace’ (Numbers 6:24-26 NLT). Asking someone, ‘How are you?’ is an expression of courtesy and care. And when you say, ‘Have a nice day,’ you sincerely mean it. But when you say, ‘God bless you,’ and understand the scriptural truth behind those words, God’s blessing can change that person’s life!

Author Kate Nowak says: ‘It should be a habit, this business of blessing others…I’ve come to realise it’s one of the most powerful and practical ways for reconnecting with each other, our world and life itself…the most phenomenal way possible to lead us to happiness and success. A blessing is a sweet release from pain…an ancient key to a successful and fulfilling life.’

[11/14, 5:17 AM] 919063: Today’s SOD – 2019-11-14
TOPIC: LIVING TO GIVE; GIVING TO LIVE

SCRIPTURE:  Give to everyone who asks you,”and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Luke 6″:30

 

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Riches without outreach is wretchedness. Prosperity without generosity is poverty. 

 

Giving is an act of releasing something to someone without the expectation of a pay back. This is the release of your love,”potentials, time, resources etc. to benefit humanity and glorify Divinity.

 

One of the major essences of living is giving. A fundamental sign of love is also giving (John 3″:16). 

 

The truth is,”giving is living; you have not started living until you have started giving. That is to say, we live to give and we give to live. Giving and living are intertwined. And to give it despite the need for it is called sacrifice. To exist without anyone benefiting from your life is a waste of existence.

 

A story was told of a wealthy man who died and while his remains was being buried, a mad man shouted “Hold on! Do not bury him without his cars, and houses; bury them all with him.” It is possible that while the rich man was alive, no one benefited from his wealth.

 

Beloved, riches without outreach is wretchedness. Prosperity without generosity is poverty. It doesn’t matter how wealthy you are, if your wealth is not wiping tears from the faces of the less privileged, you are a poor man. Until you live to give, it is possible your existence on earth is a waste.

 

REMEMBER THIS”: Riches without outreach is wretchedness. Prosperity without generosity is poverty.

 

ASSIGNMENT (S):

1. Determine to always make positive difference in the life of anyone who comes your way per-time. 

2. Make giving a lifestyle.

[11/14, 5:21 AM] 919063: WISDOM FOR THE DAY
Thursday, 14th November, 2019

GROW UP

“Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;”
Galatians 4:1 KJV

Do you know that of all the apostles, the only person that died a natural death was John? They threw him in to a boiling pot, but he came out. They banished him to the Island of Patmos because of the Word of God and that was where he received the book of Revelation. The rest of the apostles were killed, they were martyred but this man died naturally.

Are you a disciple or just a convert? You know converts, at times, live a good life, but they do not know why they are living a good life. A convert may say, ‘I have stopped drinking, I have stopped doing this and I have stopped doing that.’ But when you ask them; ‘how did you stop and why did you stop?’ They will say ‘our church told us to stop.’ He does not know what the Word of God says.

Beloved, God wants us to grow. According to our Bible text today, “…the heir, as long as he is a child…” will remain a servant. In other words, there are inheritances that belong to you, but as long as you choose not to grow up, God will not give them to you. You will be a servant until you grow up.

Why don’t you for once be honest with yourself and be real. Take a decision that you will follow God. Jesus said ‘Come, follow me and I will make you.’ Your Father knows the things that you have need of, but seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.
