Verse Of The Day : He will bless those who fear the LORD, both small and great. Psalms 115:13
Thought of The Day : God’s blessings does not recognise size, but service to God.
LISTEN : God can bless anyone. However, you can miss God’s blessing if you are not prepared for it. Beloved, are you prepared to receive the blessings of God? Truly, God blesses those who love and fear Him. His blessings are for those who truly love Him. Our verse of the day says,
“He will bless those who fear the LORD, both small and great.”
God is not a respecter of persons. He doesn’t deal with people according to their sizes, but according to their level of obedience and spiritual understanding. The more you surrender to God the more you are prepared for His blessings. Hence, age, race, colour, and whatever background you have are no obstacles to His blessings. If there’s love and fear for Him, He can bless. My dear, no matter the pain and sorrow facing you today, if you will not compromise on your love and fear for God, He won’t allow you to end as a failure. The Bible says,
“For the scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”‘
Assuredly, he who loves and obeys God will not end in shame. Because love and fear of God matters to Him; those who meet such requirements will matter to Him too. God can’t abandon those who fear Him. In the Bible, Abraham honoured and obeyed God and was blessed for his obedience and faith in God. The Bible says,
“Now Abraham was old, well advanced in years,
and the LORD had blessed him in everything.“
Beloved, God can bless anyone including you. So, position yourself for the blessings of God. Remember, we are positioned for God’s blessings when we walk in fear, faith and obedience to Him. Henceforth, determine to walk in obedience to God and you’ll attract His blessings. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Don’t give up on life, rather be hopeful and have faith in God.
2. Determine to be obedient, dedicated and loyal to God.
3. Don’t be intimidated by circumstances around you. Instead, rise in faith and declare your victory.
4. Determine to walk in the fear of God and resist the spirit of disobedience.
