Thoughts of Devotion:
In this year 2016 we should seek to have the blessing of God upon our lives. It is through God’s blessing that we will see the best that is to come! There is nothing that compares to His blessing; His blessing is unique and special. His blessing adds no sorrow, pain or distress. On the contrary, His blessing is the only thing that will bring provision, health and prosperity to our lives, families and ministries. Others may make the mistake of looking for riches without the blessing of God, and fall as resolution as it says in 1 Timothy 6: 9, “But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.“
When God blesses, He truly blesses! Nobody can bless our lives the way God can. It’s for this reason that we should not worry or be filled with anxiety in 2016. All we must do is ensure that the blessing of God rests over us. Only He will enable us with the skills and knowledge to get the supply of every need that we have. In Deuteronomy 8:18 it says, “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it isHe who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
Great blessings come to those who trust and obey God in 2016. Only then will we live happy and satisfied, because it’s then that his blessings can be upon us in everything we do. Of course, for everything it takes effort and work, but more important than this, we need to have the blessing of God! One can sow and work the land, but only God can produce a blessed harvest, as Genesis 26:12 tells us, “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him.“ Grow in his work, field work, and God will bring His blessing upon us.
