Memorise: The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. Proverbs 11:25
Read: Proverbs 11:24-26 (King James Version)
25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.
Bible in one year: Matthew 18:19, Isaiah 7:10-25, Hymn: Sing hymn 8
For all those who have received the gift of righteousness through the finished work of Calvary, the design of God for our lives is that we live by His favour. The Psalmist spoke prophetically about this in Psalm 5:12:
“For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.”
The reality of this was manifested in the life of our Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 2:52), and the early church also experienced the same (Acts 2:47). However, there are some keys that unlock the door to experiencing God’s favour. Open Heavens 9 January 2016:- Take this ride. One of these keys is found in today’s Bible reading, which says:
“The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself”
Are you not tired of increase dependent on labour? Why exert everything you have for several years to get a particular blessing, when you can pay a little price through sowing and still get great results in a shorter time, without much stress? One effective way of redeeming the time, as admonished in Ephesians 5:16, is to dump less effective methods for better, faster and less stressful ways of doing things. You are not redeeming the time when you increase only through labour. This implies that so many things will have to wait until you have the strength to work for them. Why go by labour when you rise on the wings of divine favour? Choose the vehicle to your place of destiny today!
The price you pay to ride a flight by favour, through sowing seeds, is far cheaper than what you have to pay through labour.
