BLESSED GREETING FOR 2019!
DO YOU KNOW THAT IT IS GOD’S WILL TO GIVE YOU HIS “DAILY LOAD OF BENEFITS”?
On January 3, 2019, the Lord gave me an amazing scripture which I have never seen during my 35 years as a believer. I have shared this with my ministry members and would also like to share this in this blog. Here’s the message:-
Let me encourage you today with this precious nugget from the Word of God. In Psalms 68 (Psalms is my favourite book for reading and meditation – KJV), the Psalmist wrote these fabulous inspiring words:
19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.
This verse plainly says that God will daily “load” us with “benefits”. What a great promise given to us. I have hyphenated the 2 important words. We know that there are other scriptures written about God’s benefits, one of which may be found in Psalms 103:2 which says: “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits”. Yet another scripture tells us equally the same thing about God’s blessing. Isaiah 55:1-2
1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 therefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
Do you see it, God’s words declare that we are not only to remember His benefits bestowed upon us, but we are also to be aware that His abundant life for us includes “His daily loading us with His benefits?
Now the next word “load” carries the meaning that we are not just receiving something but a load of His benefits. Do you see this way of God bestowing His blessing, filling us, our home with His benefits in such great abundance, more than we could ever imagine or think. Yes the Lord is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we could ask or think (Ephesians 3:20)! Yes He is truly Jehovah Jireh, our Provider.
Brethren, don’t you love Him for His goodness to His children, daily satisfying our mouths with good things so that our youth will be renewed like the eagle’s, and loading on us each day with His benefits so that we will lack for no good things.
How blessed are we all as His beloved children. In conclusion, let me add that the blessing will be available to anyone who believe and does not doubt, remembering that the Bible declares that His thoughts are not our thoughts, neither His ways our ways. If you believe, say a loud amen and receive. Now read this scripture in Job 22:28 “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”
Note : If your Bible gives another meaning or the text has been removed, do read the message by C. H. Spurgeon (https://www.christianity.com/bible/commentary.php?com=spur&b=19&c=68)
