How to qualify for Divine Abundance – Part 2
Today we will continue on how to qualify for God’s abundant provision. All the children of God are all potentially blessed but steps are required to release potential blessing into reality.
Walking in love and forgiveness – James 3:16 – For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
Luke 6:37 – Judge not,and ye shall not be judged : condemn not,and ye shall not be condemned : forgive , and ye shall be forgiven.
Life is a contact sport. You will run into people and people will run into you. However, ability to handle offence and forgive those that offend you is a lifelong skill to learn and maintain at all times. You cannot hold a grudge and a blessing at the same time so let the Holy Spirit shed a lot of love in your heart continually in order to forgive and walk in love. Being unforgiving is like taking poison and expecting someone else to die. Unforgiveness is very destructive and it stops the flow of divine provision so master it and don’t let it master you.
Thanksgiving – Psalm 67:5-7
5 Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You. 6 Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us. 7 God shall bless us, And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.
An attitude of gratitude will keep the flow of divine provision on. Giving thanks to God is an indication that you got his blessings and you appreciate it. When Jesus cleansed ten lepers (Luke 17:12-19) and only one returned to give thanks he asked for the other nine. This indicates that Jesus wants us to be thankful. After the leper gave thanks, Jesus went on to make the man’s life whole. So he received healing for asking and then wholeness for his attitude of gratitude. Thanksgiving keeps you in the flow. Over to you.
For further study:
Matthew 6:15, Luke 17:12-19
Personal declaration for the day:
As I have received forgiveness, I also give it to others. Jesus, thanks a million.
Questions for you to reflect on:
How forgiving and thankful are you?
