Power to Bless

9 Sep

God’s Word: Psalms 89

God’s Attribute: (9) God, who is like you, powerful and faithful from every angle.

God’s Message to me:

In this world, power is so often used to harm, not to heal.  I have shown you, by coming to the earth in the form of Jesus Christ, that power is to be used on behalf of others.  Don’t use it to elevate self, but to help others.  Humanity has always had the struggle of power corrupting.  It changes a person’s whole outlook on life and brings out the selfishness. But oh how I love it when I see someone using their power to help another.

To set self aside on behalf of another is true power.  That is being faithful to my calling on your life.  Any and all power you receive is used to bless others.  Do your best to use the passions I have given you to bless others lives.  In the way you wish others to treat you—you take the initiative and go first.  And keep on going first—forever and ever—never giving up in treating others like you would treat Me.  Daily you need that reminder that I take your treatment of all others personally.

If you use your power to lord it over others—you are actually doing that to Me.  If you use your power to bless others—I am the one who is blest.  Oh how I long to bless you more and more but the secret to receiving that blessing is for you to simply bless others, using the talents and abilities I have given you—for that very purpose. So few are willing to bless others and in turn they are hurting themselves for there is great joy in blessing others—a joy that cannot be achieved in any other way.

God’s question for me:

How will you use the passions I have given you to bless others?

God’s promise to me:

I have not left you alone but sent My Spirit to guide and bless your life to enable you to bless others—on my behalf.
