30 days of reading, hearing, and speaking God’s truth; Blessing!
Welcome to day 26!
Blessing……more specifically, blessing others!
I am so excited to talk about this topic and look at some quotes and scriptures with you! In the begging of this journey I shared with you that I had become a little complacent in my walk with Jesus! Together we have made that change, by showing up at His feet and asking for more!
I have also felt the Lord asking me to reach out and bless others with my time and service. This is something the Lord has been placing on my heart for a while now.
What have I done about it?…….given it a bit of thought…….only to make excuses, like: I am a mom, I have a two year old, there’s not enough time.
But now is the time for me to say YES, to what God is placing on my heart! I don’t have to commit every night of my week. I can start with one day a month or 2 days a month to give to another my time, my service! This is what the Lord has been placing on my heart. He may be speaking to you about something different. Whatever that is…….
My hope is that you will do the same! Say YES! What has God been placing on your heart that you want to do, but have been a bit hesitant about?
Verse of the day!
Together, let’s look at two quotes by others that have experienced the blessing of blessing others!
“The greatest blessing in the whole world is being a blessing.” Jack Hyles
“God blesses us, so that we might bless others.” Charles Stanley
The 4 laws of God’s blessing by Rick Warren! Read his full thought here!
1. I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing (Genesis 12:2).
This is the first law of lesson, it must flow outwardly.
2. So He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life (Luke 18: 29-30).
When we bless others, God takes care of our needs.
3. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you (Luke 6:38).
Our blessings to others will come back to us.
4. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked (Luke 12:48).
The more we are blessed by God, the more he expects us to bless others.
It’s so exciting to know that God has specific plans for the blessings He gives us! Together, let’s pray that He would show us how He wants us to share the blessing so it keeps on blessing!
Instead of a song of the day, I want to encourage you to continue in your quiet time with Jesus! Prayer, reading, or pen and paper. Journaling has been such a blessing to me! Any of those are great!
If this has been a blessing to you and you want to share it with others, you can PIN IT!
