SO YOU WANT TO BE BLESSED (Open Heavens daily for teenagers 2016)
Memorise: Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.–Psalm 32:1
Please Read: Genesis 27:1-4, 27 And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I.
Bible in one year: Isaiah 54-57, Acts 10:44-11:18
It is very important that the children of God know the
principles that guarantee divine
blessing so that they can endeavour to apply them. years ago, at London
Heathrow on my way back to Nigeria, I met two of my children who greeted me,
and I responded accordingly. One of them moved towards me and helped me with
one of the carry-on bags that I was struggling with and I said, “God bless
you.” On hearing “God bless you” coming from me to the one who helped me with
my bag, the other fellow said, “what about me, daddy?” I spontaneously
responded, “What for?” He saw me laden with luggage and merely greeted me, so I
merely greeted him in return. If God’s blessing is conditional, and indeed it
is, then I won’t put it on those who do not deserve it.
To receive God’s blessings without fail, be prepared to give, that’s when you will be given. It is my belief that you would always have something to give not only to God but also to His servants.
Father, open my eyes to recognise what it will take to access my divine blessings in Jesus’ name.
