Blessed To Bring Blessing

“The Lord will bless you … and you shall be a blessing.” Genesis 12:2

Everything God does, He does for a purpose. He doesn’t just do things just because He has nothing else to do. God didn’t bless our lives with gifts, talents, and resources without an intended purpose. His purpose was so that we could take what He has blessed us with and in turn be a blessing to others.

We sometimes need to be reminded that being a part of God’s family is not about us getting what we want. Being a Chris an is not about us taking our dreams and presenting them to God to have Him bless them. We are to find out what God desires for us and align our lives to His vision. When we do, it is amazing how He will place certain desires in our hearts and then fulfill those desires He gave us. This is always displayed in us through a life of giving.

The reason Jesus said that, “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” is because in order to give, we must have first received. Being blessed is one of the benefits of being a child of God. If we are always in a position where we have nothing to give, how can we be a blessing?

Prayer: Father, I want to be like You, that when I see a need, instead of criticizing, I lay down my life for it. Lord, forgive me for my lack of prayer and the weakness of my love. Heal me and empower me to be a blessing. Amen.
