Who do not want to be blessed? This is what I find interesting about this book. Even in that time of the life when other say one is “old’ – that is when you really need blessings of God. The reading and writing is easy and backed by stories plus the Words of God. A good present for our friends everywhere – even those who do not know about Jesus. I sent a copy to a lady in the Nursing home and she was as excited as ever. She was telling me how she had given up hope and was just living - for living.
She began to make plans for a future – then I knew that God works in mysterious ways.
If I am feeling lonely and sometimes fed-up with the things of life, I should really think again. The words of Genesis 24:56 come to me now as I am writing this. “And he said unto them, Hinder me not, seeing the LORD hath prospered my way; send me away that I may go to my (my way).”
Blessing is not all about money. Peace of mind and even a manageable health is a blessing. I watched a wonderful man of God talk about God and I was in tears because he had cerebral palsy. Even in his condition, he was blessed. I was really touched and began to re-examine my priorities. "Deuteronomy 31:6 - Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Psalms 39:7 - And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope [is] in thee.
There is a certain pastor who only preach and relish in the victories of yesteryears. He will narrate the story of converting a whole family, of preaching and healing of the sick and of salvation to a stubborn husband. He is speaking the truth because some of those people are still attending church services while some are with the Lord. What is happening here? The pastor is either unwilling to move ahead as a result of failure or he does not believe the spirit of God is able to move mountains again. He has given up on this present generation and refuses to quit dreaming about of what might be. He has forgotten that the same God who initiated those spirit-filled revivals is still the same God on the throne today. He does not change. The same God who gave Elijah power and took him alive is the same who gave a double-portion to Elisha. The pastor is comparing the years past and what we have in this present generation." I believe many of us do this all the time. Some of the blessed children of God in faraway countries are going through hell - real hell on earth. We should pray for them and remember them as we enjoy the blessings of God. I hereby cancel out every expectation of any distressing news related to backwardness and failure in the name of Jesus.
I hereby declare: “Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.”
The LORD shall reign forever and ever.” I will have no fear that I will get what I ask for in Jesus name.
You are my refuge and my fortress – be gloried in my life, in Jesus name. I will not be afraid of the terror by night, or of the arrow that flies by day in Jesus name. Do not take Your Holy Spirit from me in by the name of Jesus. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, in by the name of Jesus. Be glorified in my life in Jesus name.
