I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35, NKJV.
The devil would rather you pursue a blessing, than become one. He would rather you focus on what you can receive. He would rather you to focus completely on you. It is dangerous to him when you become a blessing because you begin to make God known in the earth. It’s when the Lord makes you the very answer to someone’s prayer. You make the love of Jesus real to someone, seen and felt by someone, as you become what He freely gives away.
We are living in times where the Lord strongly desires for us to listen for His voice, and yield to the Holy Spirit when He says become a blessing. This is beyond monetary. This is in spite of what is happening around you, and yes, while it may be tough, even in spite of what you’re going through. Expect from Him the unexpected, because in an instant you could meet or talk to someone and He says yield to My goodness, yield to My love and bless them. Lay down your life and bless them.
Prayer: Father I praise You! Thank You for helping me become a blessing in these times. I ask for You to be good through me. Make me an answer to someone’s prayer. No matter what I give for Your sake, it will abundantly be given back to me. Help me to be sensitive to You Holy Spirit in this area, and make me a blessing in someone’s life today. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
