Scripture Reading: Psalm 36:8
“They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.”
Soon you are going to see the King manifest in your life in a new way.
Today, we look at going from showers to abundance. Blessed be God who always causes us to triumph. When we talk about blessings, we either look for blessings from around or from above. If you are a child of God, the best way to look for help to meet your personal needs is to look above. The blessings from above are always better because they come from God.
Blessings from around you are like sprinklers; blessings from above are like showers. Showers of blessings are constant, yet they are intermittent. They come regularly, but they start and stop. So in essence, the provision God makes for you is to meet your personal needs. However, there is another category of provision for those who are looking for blessings from above. There are showers of abundance. While showers are to bless you, abundance makes it possible for you to be a blessing. The greatest blessing is to be blessed enough to be a blessing.
Abundance is constant and consistent, and causes you to reach beyond where you are with your blessings. Abundance is like a river, like the sea, like the ocean that has a perpetual flow; it never dries, nor will ever die. I pray that in the name of Jesus you will first of all deliver yourselves from expectations from man. Get yourself to the realm of expecting from God. When you start expecting from God, you stop looking around and you start looking above.
Psalm 36:8 says we will be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house and that we shall drink of the river of pleasures. It is okay to be satisfied with showers for yourself, but you soon realize that, as a Christian, you are meant to be a blessing to others. And this kind of blessing comes not only in terms of physical form, but also in spiritual substance. First, you get showers of blessings spiritually; you begin to get ministrations
for yourself. When you want to know how to minister to other people, you will need abundant anointing. You will need a level of anointing that will cause you not only to be able to bless yourself, but to bless others spiritually, financially, and with the Word. I pray that God will take you from showers to abundance in Jesus’ name. God will make you to drink of the river of His pleasure.
“And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it,” Psalm 90:17. Father, I pray that you will bless the work of the hands of your children. O living God, I pray in the name of Jesus, that you will cause your children to look above and know that you are the only one who can establish their business, the works of their hands.
Father, I pray that they will begin to get blessings from above that they go from showers to abundance in Jesus’ name.
Living God, I pray that you will pour the revelation of tithing upon your people; thereby, opening the windows of heaven over their lives. I pray that you will pour out from above blessings more than they have room enough to receive and that you will perpetually rebuke the devourer as you have promised in Deuteronomy 33:11: “accept the work of his hands; smite through the loins of them that rise against him, and of them that hate him, that they rise not again.”
Beloved, I have told you before that abundance is for you to abound to every good work. According to the Word of God in 2 Corinthians 9:8, “… God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having sufficiency in all things, may abound in every good work.” We are also told in Deuteronomy 28:2, “And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.”
Living God, I pray that you will bless the substance of your children and bless the work of their hands in the name of Jesus according to your Word in Deuteronomy 33:11. Father God Almighty, I pray for the cumulative blessings of Deuteronomy 28:1–14 to be the portion of your children forever. Father, do a work in our lives and give us the grace to practice industry.
Lord, let no one stop or hinder your work in our lives in the name of Jesus. Give your children the grace to obey and serve you, so that they will live their days in prosperity and their years in pleasure. Father, upgrade your children from showers to abundance in Jesus’ name. Amen.
