GOD SAID 'THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS FOR US THIS MONTH OF SEPTEMBER 2012
There are many scriptures that talk about God as the source and giver of blessings but for the purpose of this write up we will limit ourself to three scriptures only.
Prov.10:22 'the blessing of the Lord makes one rich and He adds no sorrow with it.
'The Lord will command the blessing on you in your store houses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the Land which the Lord your God is giving you' Dt 28:8
'They shall not labour in vain nor bring forth children for trouble for they shall be the descendants of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them Isa 65:23 Please take note of them they are good for you, therefore meditate upon them , you will be blessed.
WHAT MUST WE DO TO BE BLESSED BY GOD THIS MONTH?
Be merciful to others. Pro 11. 17 says The merciful man does good for his own soul:
The generous soul will be made rich. And he who waters will also be watered himself Prov. 11:25.
Walk not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful but let your delight be in the law of the Lord and meditate day and night in His law: Psalm 1 :1-2.
Be hardworking and observe not the wind or regards the clouds. Ecc 11:4
Commit your ways unto the Lord, trust in Him and He shall bring it to pass Ps. 37:5
Honour the Lord with your substance …. Prov. 3:9
Listen to the voice or the Holy Spirit for immediate action. Isa. 48:17-18
Meditate on God's word that can give you blessings especially the above.
Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good. Seek peace and pursue it. Ps 34:13-14
Pray earnestly as Jacob did and said that he would not let the angel go unless he blessed him Gen 32:26 , Mt. 6:6
In your prayer ask God for mercy Heb 4:16 we assure you, if you do those things God's blessings can not elude you this month. They are yours in Jesus name
LET US CONSIDER TWO PEOPLE WHOM THE LORD BLESSED: PETER AND ISAAC We will examine the role played by Jesus Christ and Peter respectively before Jesus Christ could bless him. Lk 5:1-6
Jesus saw two boats on the lake but decided to use one of them which belong to Peter.
By that action Jesus Christ was merciful to Peter.
He singled him out for His favour and blessings.
He instructed Peter on what to do.
He blessed his work.
The Lord will be merciful to you and single you out for His favour and blessings in Jesus name Amen. The role played by Peter which qualified him for blessings include:
He was not lazy because Jesus Christ met him in the area of his business.
He released his boat for master's use.
He listened to the voice of Jesus Christ and was able to identify it.
He obeyed Him and launched into the deep.
He cut many fishes
He got his blessings, you will get yours this month
Please do the same this month as Peter did lay your hand on something and be not lazy, allow Jesus Christ to bless your work. Isaac was another good example that got the blessings of God by playing his own role. There was a famine in the land of Gerar and he thought of moving to Egypt when God spoke to him to stay in Gerar. God will speak to you concerning your situation this month.
He obeyed God and sowed in that Land that year and reaped a hundred fold, and the Lord blessed him. The man Isaac begins to prosper until he became very prosperous. Gen 26:1-14. People will envy you this month because God will bless you mightily. God is interested in your life, family and work, please listen and obey Him as Isaac did. Take no decision until you hear from Him this month. He is ready to bless you and your family.
PRAYER This month the Lord will be merciful to you He will single you out for divine favour and blessings. He will instruct and teach you in the way you should go. He will guide you with. His eye and preserve you from trouble, and surround you with songs of deliverance in Jesus name Amen – Ps 32:7-8,10.
