Vessel of Blessing

Proverbs 3:27 (VOICE) Do not withhold what is good from those who deserve it; if it is within your power to give it, do it.

Beloved, if it is in your power to bless, do so without hesitation. For if there is someone who is ripe to receive and you have an opportunity to be My hands, refuse to miss the opportunity, for you cannot help but be blessed in return.

Keep an eye out for opportunities to bless, and watch them multiply before you. Whether that be in gifts or words or simply a show of support, choose to be the good – be the vessel of blessing, simply because you can.

Proverbs 3:27-35 (VOICE) Do not withhold what is good from those who deserve it; if it is within your power to give it, do it. Do not send your neighbor away, saying, “Get back with me tomorrow. I can give it to you then,” when what he needs is already in your hand. Make no plans that could result in injury to your neighbor; after all, he should be more secure because he lives near you. Avoid fighting with anyone without good reason, especially when no one has hurt you; you have nothing to fight about. Do not envy someone who profits at the expense of others or copy any of his tyrannical ways, For crooked people are detestable to the Eternal, but those with integrity receive His counsel. His curse lingers over the wicked and their families, but He forever favors residence of those who do what is right. God treats the arrogant as they treat others, mocking the mockers, scorning the scornful, but He pours out His grace on the humble. In the end, the wise will receive honor, but fools will face humiliation.

Positioned for Blessing

Proverbs 3:10 (VOICE) That way you will prosper to the fullest and have plenty of food to eat and wine to drink.

Beloved, I desire that you would prosper in every good thing. In making Me your focus, and in trusting your needs and desires to Me, you are positioned for blessing. For if your focus is on your earthly desires or on your sense of lack, it blocks the very blessing that you want and that I long to give you.

Be intentional to stay rooted in Me and in gratitude for all you’ve been given. Then trust that I will bring to you what you need when you need it and more besides. For I love to take care of My children, so yield your heart to Me.

Proverbs 3:9-12 (VOICE) Pay tribute to the Eternal in all of your affairs. Honor Him with the best of what you make. That way you will prosper to the fullest and have plenty of food to eat and wine to drink. My son, do not ignore the Eternal’s instruction or lose heart when He steps in to correct you; Because the Eternal proves His love by caring enough to discipline you, just as a father does his child, his pride and joy.

My Vow {Moments with God}

{Declaring} With my mouth, I will praise. With my tongue, I will bless. I will safeguard the wellspring of my heart so that no bitterness can take root. May I overflow with gratitude, and may my faith be steadfast too. May I reflect Your heart – in things both large and small. May I bring glory and honor unto You.

{Praying} Please put a guard upon my mouth that I may not stumble or sin. Help me capture each thought and submit it to Christ, and may no temptation draw me in. May my life be a blessing to all those around me, and may my heart be ever true. But above all else may I be pleasing in Your sight and be a blessing unto You.

James 3:9 (TPT) We use our tongue to praise God our Father and then turn around and curse a person who was made in his very image!

The Biggest Blessing of All {Moments with God}

James 1:17 (VOICE) Every good gift bestowed, every perfect gift received comes to us from above, courtesy of the Father of lights…

{Speaking to God in my heart} I hope I never lose sight of the fact that every blessing I have ever had and ever will have comes from you. Even when you move on the hearts of other people to be Your hands and feet – the obedient vessels that deliver Your blessing, still the inspiration comes from You. So thank You. Thank You for choosing to pour out blessing upon me. Thank You for allowing me to be Your hands and feet to bless others. Thank You for loving me – even when it’s tough love. Thank You for moving through me – may my heart stay steadfast in its reflection of Your faithfulness to me. And may I never forget that at the end of the day, You Yourself and getting to have relationship with You are the biggest blessings of all.

James 1:17 (VOICE) Every good gift bestowed, every perfect gift received comes to us from above, courtesy of the Father of lights. He is consistent. He won’t change His mind or play tricks in the shadows.

I Delight to Prosper You

Deuteronomy 30:9-10 (AMP) Then the Lord your God shall make you abundantly prosperous in everything that you do, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your cattle and in the produce of your land; for the Lord will again delight over you for good, just as He delighted over your fathers, if you listen to and obey the voice of the Lord your God to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this Book of the Law, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul (your entire being).

Beloved, I delight to prosper you. It pleases Me that you should have enough – even more than enough that you might share liberally. For as you choose Me with all your heart, and as you seek Me above all else, blessings surely follow.

When you choose good, good is the result. And when you choose evil, evil is the result. This does not mean hardships will never come, it simply means I will bring beauty from ashes and you will overcome. So choose Me, and may you prosper even as your soul prospers – and may it prosper abundantly.

Look for My Fingerprints

Psalm 1:1 (VOICE) God’s blessings follow you and await you at every turn…

Beloved, as you live your life firmly rooted in Me, blessings await you at every turn. Refuse to be blind to that which has been lavished on you simply because it takes a different form than you expected.

Make a game of finding My fingerprints on the blessings that surround you. Look for My winks from heaven that acknowledge the intimacy between us. For I AM present, and I AM moving. So see My hand at work and give glory to Me.

Psalm 1:1-3 (VOICE) God’s blessings follow you and await you at every turn: when you don’t follow the advice of those who delight in wicked schemes, When you avoid sin’s highway, when judgment and sarcasm beckon you, but you refuse. For you, the Eternal’s Word is your happiness. It is your focus—from dusk to dawn. You are like a tree, planted by flowing, cool streams of water that never run dry. Your fruit ripens in its time; your leaves never fade or curl in the summer sun . No matter what you do, you prosper.

Rest in My Goodness

Numbers 6:24 (AMP) The Lord bless you, and keep you [protect you, sustain you, and guard you];

Beloved, I AM your strong tower – YHVH Misgab, and your provider – YHVH Jireh. I sustain you and work on your behalf. For I love My children, and I would see them flourish and thrive. Align yourself with Me, and rest in My goodness.

For I AM the bringer of light and love – in Me you find life. So embrace My love, and let it in – refuse to resist it, and see the beauty it brings forth. I AM your all in all. Rest in My love and the abundant life I bring; for beloved, I think you’re worth it. Continue reading “Rest in My Goodness”

I Choose You

Deuteronomy 1:8 (NKJV) See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the Lord  swore to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—to give to them and their descendants after them.’

Beloved, don’t hesitate when I set the path before you and instruct you to move forward. Trust that what I have promised, I will deliver. Walk in bold authority – empowered by My Spirit, and step into that which I have for you.

My desire is to bless My children. Resist the urge to feel yourself unworthy of being blessed. You don’t have to earn My love, beloved, for it is freely given and is beyond measure. This has nothing to do with worth. It has everything to do with choice, and I choose you.

Showers of Blessing

Ezekiel 34:26 (VOICE) I will make them and the area around My holy hill a blessing. At My direction, there will be plenty of rainfall when it is needed. There will be showers of blessing!

Beloved, trust My provision. For I rain down My blessings in season as there is need, and My ears are attuned to your cries. So open your hand and receive. You don’t need to grasp or strive. Rather rest in My flow.

Allow My Spirit to lead, and trust that I lead you rightly. For My eye is on the sparrow, so I’m certainly aware of you – My precious child. Trust yourself to My care, and receive the showers of blessing as they come, for they surely will.

I AM Increasing You

Isaiah 54:2-3 (VOICE) Enlarge your house. You are going to need a bigger place; don’t underestimate the amount of room that you’ll need. So build, build, build. You will increase in every direction to fill the world. Your offspring will take over the nations; Your people will revitalize long-abandoned towns.

Beloved, I have more for you than you can begin to imagine. Keep your gaze fixed on Me and pursue Me with determined intent, then make ready for increase and pour out from your overflow.

I AM increasing you to the left and the right. I AM blessing you with more than enough because I know you are generous and will share liberally. Be intentional to remember that I AM the giver, and I give in abundance. Refuse to align with lack. Trust Me, and trust My hand as I move in and through you.
