SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL 20 MAY 2019
TOPIC: The Blessedness of Being a Blessing
(Seeds of Destiny 20 May 2019 Devotional)
Being a blessing is better than just being blessed. There is a higher realm of living than just being blessed and that is the realm of being a blessing. Any blessing that stops with you is not a blessing; it is just a realm of survival. Being a blessing earns you an enviable place in history, makes you live beyond your time.
SCRIPTURE: Now the Lord had said unto Abram, get thee out of thy country and from thy kindred and from thy father’s house unto a land that I will show thee. And 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 12:1-2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Any blessing that stops with you is not a blessing; it is just a realm of survival.
We live in a world today that is filled with so much selfishness, wickedness and heartlessness (Matt. 24:10). People only think of themselves and of no one else. Only very few people understand what it means to live a life that is a blessing to others. Being a blessing is a secret of the future. The seeds of Abraham are everywhere on the earth because he decided not just to be blessed, but to be a blessing.
It is a blessed thing to be a blessing to others. I would like you to take note of the following key thoughts concerning the blessedness of being a blessing:
Being a blessing is better than just being blessed. There is a higher realm of living than just being blessed and that is the realm of being a blessing. Any blessing that stops with you is not a blessing; it is just a realm of survival. Being a blessing earns you an enviable place in history, makes you live beyond your time.Being a blessing guarantees the future of the blessed. Any person who does not share the opportunities or the blessings that come his way eats up his future. There is no future for the self-centred.
Now, what does it mean to be a blessing?
It means making positive contributions to an individual or a group of individuals, family, church, a nation and to God.It is to facilitate the success of others both spiritually and physically.It means reducing the stress and sweat of others physically, spiritually, emotionally or psychologically.It is being a positive change agent, changing the conditions, situations and circumstances of the lives of others.
Beloved, when you make your life a blessing, you will never be dry as far as the Blessing of God is concerned, because for as long as a tap conducts water, it can never be dry.
REMEMBER THIS: Any blessing that stops with you is not a blessing; it is just a realm of survival.
Locate a person or people around you and trust God to be of blessing to them.Start from where you are and with what you have.
PRAYER: O Lord, I declare that I am a blessing to my generation. I am a blessing not a burden. I matter to this generation, Lord in the Name of Jesus.
