In the last text I wrote about the blessings that are poured into our lives in an overflowing way so that we can share them. (Click here to read). You certainly occupy a place of blessing in something. Maybe in your relationships, maybe in knowledge, maybe financially, in talents. Or in various things. Know that this is grace that was bestowed upon you.
And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. – 2 Cor. 8:8
God wants to give us more than we need so that we can use that overflow to connect with one another, to bless one another. To live in church. God wants us to experience living in unity. That’s why the pouring out of gifts is different on each person, so that we are just complete in each other.
Most likely your friend is overflowing with something you need, and likewise, you may have something the person next to you is in need. Let’s pray that you will be able to identify all that God has done in your life and then multiply.
Remember that you don’t have to repeat the prayer exactly as I’m going to leave it here, because each one of us has a specific way of communicating with the Lord. But if you want to follow me, it will be a pleasure, feel free to speak it in your own way.
Dear and beloved God, I first want to thank you for every gift and grace we have received through Jesus. Thank You that through Christ we are free, forgiven, accepted by You. Thank You that Jesus shares with us His place as Your Son, the authority of His name and makes us co-heirs with Him. Thank you that we receive in Jesus every spiritual blessings in the heavenly realms.
Lord, give us a look capable of recognizing all that we have received from You so that we can multiply and pass it on so that more people are edified and feel your love through us. So often we are ungrateful and do not look at the miracles that You has done in our homes and our lives. Help us to see all the grace received.
Holy Spirit, help us so that whenever we have something that can bless someone, that we will never be indifferent or people who withhold for themselves the blessings we received from the Father. Help us to have a giving heart, generous and looking towards the next. Make us channels of blessing and instruments of Your love.
Teach us to look at everything we have with a vision of eternity. Let us not despise opportunities to make a difference in someone’s life. The greatest blessing we received was through the work of Jesus. May we share the good news of salvation with others who still don’t know You either.
May we be generous with all things (gifts, resources, time, talent, etc) and in everything. May we be able to bless, as we have already been blessed by people and, above all, to share all the blessings that we have already received from the Lord.
It is in Jesus’ precious name that I pray.
