Be A Blessing

 

Since we are so blessed, it is essential that we do not sit on our blessings or brag about how blessed we are, because The Lord has blessed us to be a blessing to other people. When we bless people, we should not do it in order to be recognized, but we should bless them because it was on our heart to do so. The Scripture reminds us, to beware that we do not practice our righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then we will have no reward from our Father who is in Heaven. I encourage you today not to do anything just so you can be recognized by other people. When The Lord lays it on your heart to be a blessing, you do not need to publicize or advertise it, but you should do it to help someone who was in need. When The Lord blesses you, He does not put it in the newspaper, social media, or on a billboard, but He blesses you where you are. When you do something for recognition of people, once they have given you your public acknowledgment that is all the reward you will have. However, when you are a blessing to someone and you do it just because they were in need, then your Father who is in Heaven rewards you, and there is nothing that can compare to a blessing from your Father in Heaven. Whatever I do I want it to be for The Lord and not for recognition, and since I know I am blessed to be a blessing, I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"

 

Prayer

Lord thank you for blessing me in so many ways. Thank you for trusting me to be a blessing to others who are in need. Thank you Lord for sowing me your grace, mercy, and love. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
