I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our God, who created and formed us and who never ever forgets us. The blessed word that God has given for you, today is from the book ofProverbs 10:6, “ The Blessings of the Lord are on the head of the righteous. “
From the above context we come to understand that the real blessings of the Lord will surely rest on the head of the righteous. It will not be a temporary blessing. It will remain over a long period of time. The Blessing of the Lord will remain with you forever. Only then it can be considered as blessing from the Lord. If the blessing stays for a while with you, and then it departs, from you then it is not the blessing of the Lord. The Bible says, “The Blessings of the Lord, makes one rich and He adds no sorrow with it.”
To those of you who are reading this message, I wish to illustrate this with an example. Let us say your neighbour has built a house. And so you want to build a house like your neighbour, therefore you get funds from all the banks possible and start constructing your house. You then begin to borrow more money from financer for high rate of interest. You do all this without consulting with God, not knowing His will for you. It may not be that you should build a house just because your neighbour built it. Now you are unable to complete the house construction. It stands half built. You are yet to finish the building work. You are in a fix. You don’t know what to do further. You realize that you are caught up in a huge debt. You do not know how to build the house or pay back the dues to the bank and the financier. Now you will feel ashamed that you could not complete building the house. This is when you realize that it is not the blessing of God.
If it is God’s will He will help you find the resource for building your house. You prayed about it. You asked the Lord beforehand whether you could build a house of your own. Since you asked God, He will remain with you. He will take up the responsibility of building the house. He will provide the means to pay your loans. That is the truth. He will make it possible for you to complete the construction. He will never put you to shame before your neighbours. When you fail to ask God’s will to build your house, then the bank officers will come and seal your house until you make the full payment. This is because you have tried to snatch the blessing of God before the appointed time. We should never try to enjoy, anything that gives us pleasure, before it comes from the hand of God.
When God does not bless, there will be blockades, such that you will not be able to proceed further, with the construction, of your house, or anything that concerns, you. So I request you through this message, that none of you, who are reading this message, should get entangled in such issues. Be careful to listen to the voice of God in this regard. It is not about how you rotate your money in order to build your house, but whether it is the will of God. You need to know if the blessing is sent from the Lord. Then He will make arrangements for you to pay the bills. God will make arrangements for your maintenance, and for all other things. If it is from God, your house that you build will last forever. The Lord says, “My People will never be put to shame.” Therefore you need to do everything with utmost care and with wisdom. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord we thank You for teaching us through this message the importance of knowing God’s will in our life. Let us be careful to do everything with the direction of God. Never to do anything just to boast of our capability. Help us to be humble and not proud, in doing anything in our life. Teach us to take counsel of God through prayer and by reading the word of God and listening to the still small voice of God. May God help us to walk in wisdom.
