And when we trust Him by putting Him first in all of our financial matters and concerns, He promises to open up the windows of Heaven to spill out blessings in a tidal wave of grace, so overpowering that we can’t contain or count them all. They will spill over from our lives into the lives of all those around us. This is how generously God gives to His children when He wants to bless us, lavishing upon us a cornucopia of blessings that is immeasurable. He is an Infinitely, Lavishly Loving God, and with His God-sized Agape Love comes an off-the-charts generosity in all things once we put Him first and foremost in our lives. And believe me, even if you become so overjoyed with the blessings He gives you and you try to give back to God, you will NOT be able to out give God. The return we get on His grace is always vastly much more that the tiny investment of effort and resources that we put into His work.
God does amazing things once He starts to bless your life, with the overflow of blessings in your life even reaching to all the people around you, changing their lives as well. It is a fact that, once God starts working in people’s lives, amazing things happen, and they/we turn into amazing people. I’ve seen it happen. You’ve seen it happen. It’s happening in my life, and it’s most likely happening in your own life, even though you might not have noticed for lack of understanding and for limited spiritual perception. But how amazing can we become with God’s work in our lives? What is our potential? And just how far can we go in moving the mountains and breaking down the strongholds in our lives and the lives of those around us? We are only limited by the greatness of our faith, that power of God built up in us over time through the process of sanctification, which begins at the moment we are saved by Jesus, but which grows ever bigger as we spend time with Him in prayer, meditating on His word, and working out His principles in our lives on a daily basis.
More on this tomorrow. I pray that you will be given eyes to see the hand of God working in your life and the lives of others all around you. God is very busy at His work and is into every corner of the world and every nook and cranny of people’s lives, as much as they allow Him, unless they are resistant to His control, too prideful to submit to Him, or are committed to willful sin and are in open rebellion against God’s plan for them.
