Be His Channel
“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:”
God is a “blessing-God” and He always loves to bless people. The Bible says, “The eyes of the Lord run to and fro upon the earth to show Himself strong on behalf of them whose hearts are perfect toward Him (2 Chronicles 16:9). In other words, He’s constantly looking out to bless someone. But to do this, He won’t come down from heaven; He needs someone in the earth to bless another person. That’s why He trains us by teaching us to give, to be caring and concerned about the needs of others.
When you realize that whatever is in your charge is not yours but God’s, it becomes easy for you to give. I’ve always had to remind myself of this truth, that’s why through the years I’ve found it easy to give to God and to people around me. I’ve made it a conscious lifestyle to be God’s blessing to my world. Abraham was a blessed man. He was prosperous in all things, for God had blessed him abundantly. The Bible tells us that by associating with him, his nephew, Lot, also became very prosperous. That’s the way it ought to be.
You’re the symbol of God’s blessing; therefore those around you ought to experience prosperity because of you. Understand that God loves to bless others through you. You’re not the one trying to get blessed, for He’s already blessed you (Ephesians 1:3) and has made you a blessing (1 Peter 3:9). So not only are you blessed, your life is overflowing with blessings.
God has made you the channel of distribution of His blessing to the world. Therefore never hold back when He tells you to give, for you’re His agent of blessing to your world. God’s unusual blessings are reserved for givers. Therefore always be quick to release; always be prompt to give for it is more blessed to give than to receive.
thank you for blessing me with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. You’ve made me the symbol of your blessings to my world, therefore I ask that you lead me today to recognize those you’ve ordained to bless through me, that they may experience your love and goodness,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
