This is the third and final part of our discussion of the topic “toward understanding how to take delivery of God’s abundant blessing”. I hope that you have read parts one and two for a better understanding? If not, GO HERE to read part one.
In part one and two, we saw the reasons that made some Christians be poor and may remain poor till they die unless they have the knowledge and understanding of how to take delivery of God’s abundant blessing.
In this segment, we shall be looking at how to take delivery of God’s abundant blessing. As we saw earlier, some Christians are very poor not that God did not bless them, but because they lack the knowledge and understanding of how to take delivery of God’s abundant blessings.
That is to say, it is our personal responsibility to acquire the knowledge and understanding of how to take delivery of God’s abundant blessing and to utilize the power God had given us to get wealth.
First and foremost is to realize that God had opened the window of heaven and poured out a blessing. It is left for us to take delivery of the blessing for our own benefit.
In going about it, the problems with many Christians have to do with identifying the blessing and the form it may take or appear. For instance, God may decide to bless us by giving us divine ideas.
It is as we trade with the idea that wealth may come in abundance. The idea may be secrets, and the world is ruled by secrets. When we know some secrets others don’t know, that gives us an edge over others.
But the point is that any Christian that fails to utilize the idea or secret may remain poor and may die in his poverty. So if you are a faithful tither, please God, may give you an idea, a secret which if utilized may pump wealth to you.
Secondly, God may also decide to prosper you by giving you divine favor. What catapulted Esther, an orphan, and a village girl to become a queen if not God’s divine favor?
According to the book of Esther 2:15, when the turn came for Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her as his daughter, to go in to the king, she requested nothing but what Hegai the king’s eunuch, the custodian of the women, advised. And Esther obtained favor in the sight of all who saw her.
Also, the Book of Genesis 39:4 said this of Joseph, So Joseph found favor in his sight, and served him. Then he made him overseer of his house, and all that he had he put under his authority.
Above all, we must learn to be diligent. According to Proverbs 10:4 which says, “He who has a slack hand becomes poor, But the hand of the diligent makes rich”.
Also, the book of Proverbs 22:29 says, Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men and Proverbs 14:23 says, In all labor, there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.
Diligent labor is of paramount because it is the works of our hand God blesses, but many Christians are so lazy that instead of engaging in productive thinking and diligent labor, +they are bombarding heaven with prayers.
No man ever gets prospered by engaging only in prayer without the works of his hands. It is those Christians that are praying, but not working that ended being poor.
In addition, God may decide to bless you by bringing your way wonderful opportunities. It is by grabbing the opportunities that one gets prospered. But the point is that many Christians that are poor fail to grab the opportunities that come their way.
Finally, God may decide to bless you by sending you, destiny helpers. There is no man that ever succeeded without a destiny helper. Destiny helpers may not be the ones to help but may release the information we need to succeed. However, the problem with many Christians that ended up becoming poor is because they neglected and despised destiny helpers God sent their way.
Many are lost out because they failed to make use of destiny helpers God sent their way. Will you be diligent enough to recognize God’s ideas, or secrets that He gives you?
Will you also be diligent enough to utilize the favor God gives you and as well grab the opportunities that come our way? Once we are diligent, we shall surely stand before kings and not before mean men. Shalom!
