WHEN BLESSINGS FLOW
We all hate to deal with a stopped up sink. The gunk and junk in it that keeps water from flowing gets pretty gross. When our life is stopped up from sin due to being angry or bitter, blessings can’t flow from God. We can’t be the person He wants us to be and we certainly can’t help others when everything that is coming in isn’t going out. God wants His blessing to flow through us to others. We need to be sure we are allowing Him to cleanse us daily so we are able to show mercy to others as He has shown to us.
Jude 1:22 “And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, You are so good to us. You show mercy on us when we don’t deserve it at all. Help us not to take advantage of Your mercy but to share it with others, especially those whose faith is wavering. Use us to allow Your blessings to flow through us so we can let others see Jesus in us. We come to You today to cleanse us, to free us from sin and to show us the action to take for You today. In Jesus name. Amen.
When blessings flow through us, God can use us to help others.
When blessings flow through us, God can use us to have mercy on others.
When blessings flow through us, God can use us to share His word with others.
When blessings flow through us, God can use us to give to others.
When blessings flow through us, God can use us to earnestly pray for others.
James 5:16b “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” (NLT)
