EXISTING AS A BLESSING
By DIGC 03 November 2019
God does not bless containers, He blesses channels; any water that does not flow must stink.
SCRIPTURE: I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great, and thou shall be a blessing.
Genesis 12: 2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God does not bless containers; He blesses channels; any water that does not flow must stink.
The Blessing of God is behind the making of notable men and women, both in scriptural and contemporary times. Blessed people are eminent and prominent people in their generation.
But it is one thing to be blessed, and another thing to become a blessing. Being blessed is not enough, becoming a channel of blessing to others is far more important. Existing as a blessing involves the act of contributing positively to the lives of others. It is living to ameliorate people’s challenges or burdens. It is a life that adds value to other people’s lives. It is a point where a sad person starts smiling because of you; a hopeless person becomes hopeful, a homeless person becomes sheltered, a nobody becomes a somebody, a nonentity becomes a celebrity, all because of you.
Beloved, the essence of God’s blessing in your life is for you to become a blessing to other people. (2 Kings 4:5-6).
God does not bless stagnant ponds but flowing rivers. God does not bless containers but channels; any water that does not flow must stink. Everyone is blessed to the capacity of their willingness to bless their generation. On this Blessing Sunday, I prophesy to you the Blessing of the Lord that would swallow any curse upon your life, in Jesus’ Name. You are blessed! (Numbers 6:23-27)
REMEMBER THIS: God does not bless containers, He blesses channels; any water that does not flow must stink.
