“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.” Malachi 3:10 (NKJV)
June 26th is my birthday. God has rained many unexpected blessing upon me today.
A relationship offered an unexpected olive branch. Many old friends sent messages of love. A newfound relative called and wished me well, deepening our bond. New friends extended hands of friendship and kindness. A son thought of his mother first and blessed her with His Gordon Ramsey eggs! Aging parents remembered the birth of their second child, affirming their unconditional love and never ending support. Truly God poured down many blessings upon my head and I am smiling with joy and peace.
There are times of desert dwelling, where rain is rare and spirits are weary. I say to you, hold on. God will soon rain many blessings upon you. Hold on and remain steadfast.
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)
Meditate on the blessings in your life, and pray for new ones to rain down upon your head. Ask God to bless those you love and wait for the marvel of it all. You will be reminded of His power. You will be humbled by His faithfulness.
