Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Proverbs 10:22, “The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it”. This verse clearly says that the blessings of the Lord make a person rich and does no harm. When God blesses you, you will experience a fullness of joy and satisfaction of the blessing throughout.
The bible tells us the story of Judas Iscariot (one of the disciples of Jesus). God had given him a great post of being a cashier. He was quiet happy and content with his job. Everything went well till one day, when the devil took root in his life. The devil induced the love of money in his heart. One fine day, a thought struck him. He thought that even after having been with Jesus for a long time, he felt that he did not receive any benefits. While he was in this thought, one of the Priests in the temple offered him a deal for his income. He was to betray Jesus for 30 pieces of silver coins. For a moment, Judas forgot about who Jesus was and all that He had done for him. Without any hesitation, Judas agreed on the deal. He then betrayed Jesus with a kiss and got his deal of 30 silver coins. Right after he betrayed Jesus, his conscience started to torment him. He ran back to the Priest at the temple to return the coins; but they refused to take it back. Out of extreme guilt and shame, Judas hung himself.
My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, today, ask the Lord to fill you with the spirit of discernment. When the devil blesses you, no doubt, you will end up in sorrow and even sometimes it may lead you to take any wrong decision in haste. At the same time, when God blesses you, it will not be to harm or hurt you but to bring you a fullness of Joy and complete satisfaction. When you ask the Lord for what you want in His name, He will give it to you according to His will and plan in your life. If He does not give you certain blessings that you ask, do not be haste because He knows when and what He should give you. All you need to do is to trust in Him alone.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord, You are a God who knows every person individually. You also know their needs. Father, I pray that You may fill them with the spirit of discernment so that they will be able to know what blessings come from You and what does not. I pray that Your mighty hands of protection maybe with them wherever they go and in all that they do. May You bring Your children out of all poverty, struggles, pain, agony and bless them in all that they do. In Jesus name we pray,
