Before the Lord Jesus Christ went to Heaven, His final command is for us to go and make disciples. This only shows that reaching out & nurturing the lost is very important to Him. Sharing the gospel is not easy. But the good news is, when we choose to follow Him, not only are we enriching others but also ourselves. We get to experience God’s amazing power in our lives and be like Him. It’s about time we take a step further and desire for maturity in our walk with Him. The Lord has placed us in a position of power and it is His desire that our lives will bear much fruit for His glory.
["Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” - Matthew 28:19-25]
God tests us in our need. Whenever we have money problems, God has provided a way for us to get out of it. By following His principles, we can be assured that no matter how impossible our situation is financially, God will miraculously provide. He can make a way for us, when we feel like we are in a dead end. Today, God invites us to look up and eagerly expect great blessings and provision for all our needs.
[ "If you keep my commands, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept my Father's commands and remain in his love."-John 15:10 ]
Do you sometimes wish that all your financial needs will be taken care of in an instant? That the money you have in your bank account will be more than enough to meet all your needs? The Bible declares that it is God’s perfect will for us to live a complete & abundant life. But there is a process. As soon as we are ready to go through it, the sooner God will show Himself faithful to His promises to supply our needs according to His riches and glory.
[ "And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work." - 2 Corinthians 9:8 ]
[ Part 2 of Multiplied Blessings ]
You can find peace through trusting God above all else. You can only have one Master. This world may tempt you into believing that money, influence or connections is the answer to your problems today. That is not true. The answers is in God alone. Everything is under His control. Today, start focusing your eyes on Him. Believe that He will hold you by your right hand and lead you to the good life He has planned for you.
[ "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." - Matthew 6:24 ]
Jesus wants us to have “a full and satisfying life” without getting bogged down by things that don’t add value or meaning, or things that pull us away from Him. Do you need His help today? God’s message is simple. Everything that we need is IN Him and if we seek Him FIRST, then, whatever we need will be taken care of. Let us not look at money as our source for everything but to God and Him alone. Always remember that our God is everlasting, infinitely rich and glorious.
[ “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” – Matthew 6:33 ]
Your prosperity is connected to your purpose. When we acknowledge God as our source and follow His will for us to share our blessings, we will experience what it means to “truly live”. The Lord Jesus reminds us to lay for ourselves treasures in heaven. Everything is in His hand and there is nothing He will not give if we choose to follow Him.
[ "Lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal." -Matthew 6:20 ]
( Part 3 of The Gift of Rest )
Regardless of where you are in life, realize that in every stage of your journey, “rest” is required for you to level up to the next phase. Remember that even God rested & was refreshed after His work. He wants us to do the same, because resting allows us to appreciate the journey & not just the destination. It is a gift that He really wants us to enjoy.
[ "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." - Isaiah 41:10 ]
God doesn’t want us to be tired all the time. He wants us to rest. In fact, commands us to do it. As Christians, we all need to take a break to restore ourselves. Taking the time to rest allows us breathe in and discover God’s comforting embrace in the midst of our busy schedules.
[ Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." -Matthew 11:28 ]
Money can never give us true peace and satisfaction. And whenever we put our trust in our own strength, we will realize later on that all our efforts is still not enough. God is reminding us today that everything in this world can fail us. The only thing that holds up when the going gets tough is our faith in God. So if you want peace of mind right now, remind yourself that the only security that you need in your life is the Lord. You are safe with Him. Just trust Him.
[ Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." - Hebrews 13:5 ]
Do you want to be successful in everything you put your hands to? Do you want your business or work life to flourish? The Bible says, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” If we want to experience 100% success, let’s listen to God’s specific instructions & make a choice to follow it.
[ "Give generously to them (the poor) and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to." - Deuteronomy 15:10 ]
