MADE FOR THE BLESSING

I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing. (Ezekiel 34:26)

The goodness of God knows no bound. It is in the nature of God to bless His people at all times. However, why many do not experience the manifestations of these blessings as they ought to, is due to lack of spiritual growth. God is not a waster of resources.

From our scriptural text we discovered that the first thing God takes into consideration before the release of His showers of blessing is the promise of building the people. He said; "I will make them...." The making process always precedes the blessing season. What you are asking God for now in prayer, have you paused for a moment to ask yourself if you are matured enough for it? Can you handle that financial breakthrough? Can you handle that marriage? We are meant to focus first on our spiritual, emotional and mental growth before demanding access into certain level of blessings.

The bible reveals this truth to us in Acts 20:32 "now I commit you to God and to the Word of His Grace, which CAN BUILD YOU UP, AND GIVE YOU an inheritance among all those who are sanctified."

Until the word build you up, it cannot give you access to an inheritance. As it is in the physical, so it is as well in the spiritual realm. You cannot give a car key to a 4 year old to drive no matter how you love the child. Like my son will always say,"Dad, let me drive" and I will look at him and smile, because I know he is not matured enough to handle what he is requesting. Likewise, God often smiled at you, because He knows you do not understand the magnitude of what you are demanding. Give yourself first to the word, and grow in order to access your inheritance.

Galatians 4:1-2  What I am saying is that as long as the heir is a child, he is no different from a slave, although he owns the whole estate. He is subject to guardians and trustees until the time set by his father.

Apostle Paul made us understand that as long as you're a child, you're no different from a slave. Who is a child? A child is someone not matured in reasoning, in decision making. You can be of age and still acts as a child. Age is not a yardstick for maturity. What gives you access into the blessings you are made for, is your growth in the word of God.

1 Peter 2:2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation.

Have you seen when a newborn baby is hungry? The baby will cry and cry until the mother gives her food. When you see a baby that does not cry for food such a child will look retarded, malnourished.

In other words, when a believer does not crave for spiritual milk, that is the word of God, he/she becomes retarded. Though is a believer but lacks necessary essential nutrients for his growth. The essence for the crave is for nourishment, growth.

Prayer:
1. Oh Lord, build me up with your word today.
2. I walk in the fullness of God's blessing, I can never be limited and I can't be stopped in Jesus name.
3. The blessings of God is at work in my life making me rich and prosperous in everything I lay my hands on in Jesus name amen.
GOD BLESS YOU.

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses(I Timothy 6:12).
In the journey of life, battles are not optional but mandatory. Even at birth, a child must be made to cry. At that point, he fights to overcome the force that wants to keep his lungs closed; so as to  live. Henceforth, various battles begin. 
When one becomes born again, the dynamics of the fight changes. He will still fight but this time around it is a good fight. The bible calls it the “Good Fight of Faith”. The fight is a good fight; the weaponry is also a unique one, FAITH. So a believer fights the good fight of faith, this fight is  termed a good fight because the end is determined from the beginning. Victory is guaranteed at the end. It is a fight to be won. Halleluyah!
It is like watching a replayed boxing match whose winner you already know. The same way, God is not bothered about what fight you may be involved …

LISTEN TO GODS' VOICE TODAY

"Today if you hear God’s voice speaking to you, do not harden your hearts against Him, as the people of Israel did when they rebelled against Him in the desert.” (Hebrew 3:15).
God speaks to his creation at all times. As we read the bible we see instances where God spoke to unbelievers, example; Saul,  Nebuchadnezzar etc. Jesus spoke to the wind and it obeyed him, He also spoke to the fig tree. How much more you his child. It is an error for you to say you can’t hear his voice. 
Jesus speaking in..…John 10:27 said; “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” 
As Gods' children, we have the capacity and the ability to hear His voice. But the challenge is; a lot of us do not pay attention and listen to what God is saying. Probably because we are waiting to have the Saul’s encounter of a voice speaking from heaven (Act 9:4).
God speaks to us in our spirit with a small still voice. Prophet Elijah had an encounter with this voice… II Kings 19:12 -13 “...and after the…

THE WISDOM OF GOD.

Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are His. And he changes the times and the seasons: He removes  Kings, and sets up Kings; He gives wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding. (Daniel 2:20-21)
This is profound words of Daniel praising God of all possibilities when he was with his friends narrating his experience to interpret and tell king Nebuchadnezzar of the dream he had. 
There is a wisdom from God that dethrones and enthrones. When you walk in the wisdom of God, you take your place in destiny; you get blessed by the same circumstances that destroy others;when  men are saying “There is a casting down”, You shall say “There is a lifting up”. The wisdom of God is superior to every other  wisdom. 
Five (5) important truths you need to know about the wisdom of God;  1. God is the source of wisdom  2. God is the fountain of wisdom  3. God is the giver of wisdom  4. God is the God of wisdom  5. God is the Author of …
