The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. (Psalm 145:9)
Our God is in the blessing business, and I can assure you He wants to do more than bless your food! Yet for far too many brothers and sisters in our family of faith, that is as far as they go when it comes to seeking the blessings of God. We serve a BIG GOD, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, and we ought to be looking to Him each day for BIG BLESSINGS.
God wants us to come to Him with open minds, open hearts, and open hands, ready to receive all that He has in store for us. God wants us to trust more, seek more, believe more, wait more, expect more, pray more, and depend more. God wants us to pour out our lives out in service to Him for His glory and the good of all others. As we engage in advancing the cause of His big Kingdom rather than our own little kingdom, God will bless our efforts beyond our wildest imaginations.
Perhaps you are facing a challenge that seems impossible to overcome. Never forget, Christian, that with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). Hudson Taylor, the great 19th-century missionary to China, said this about God doing the impossible: “There are three stages to every great work of God: first it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done.” Remember, even when circumstances argue against all hope, we are still to have hope. Because Jesus is our Living Hope, we have a hope that nothing in this world can affect.
What would you like God to bless in your life right now? Come into His Presence and share what is on your heart. And then prepare to be blessed, because God wants to bless more than your food. Remember, He who began a good work in you has promised to complete it, and there is no greater blessing than that.
This is the Gospel. This is grace for your race. NEVER FORGET THAT . . . AMEN!
