I heard, “I AM blessing your Storehouses.”
A lot is happening in us, there is an unusual door of victory which has been opened to us.
This is door is seeing God move in the fulfillment of his counsel neglecting all our weaknesses. All we need now is just to avail ourselves as his unfathomable power is moving on our behalf.
There is something about The Love of God manifest through Christian.
I am finding it difficult letting go of this subject, because I have been set free from the depression I would been under, the rejection and shame I have suffered from many people which would have destroyed my life and calling if I had not known the way of love.
I would have allowed unforgiveness and bitterness to totally destroy me and the ministry of God upon my life, but thank God his purpose upon me is immutable.
Let me share some things about love that I have learned, which through the power of The Holy Ghost has being helping me to forgive and love others unconditionally.
First, love begins with the love of self.
My loving my neighbor is first conditional to my loving myself. This means in a spiritual manner, I have to be selfish. This is why The Word says;
“Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these,” Mark 12:31.
Therefore, if I cannot love myself, I cannot love my neighbour, for I ought to love him the same way I love myself.
I know it sounds boring but this is the revelation that helps out of depression, unforgivenenss, bitterness and the likes;
Look at what the scripture declares;
“The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh,” Proverbs 11:17.
Observe carefully the the above sentence. It says the merciful man doeth good to his own soul, not to the soul of the man he is showing mercy. His very soul enjoys goodness when he is merciful.
That means unforgiveness kills me and does nothing to the one I hold grudges against. If I love my soul, if I love my life I must forgive but if I hate my life, I will be unmerciful and destroy my own soul.
But I am wiser than that, because I am spiritually selfish, I will constantly show mercy as long as I live.
I need my soul to enjoy my life and to fulfill my ministry. My family needs me to love them, I need to shine my light to the world, I need Jesus to reign in me.
Therefore, I have already forgiven all my offenders in advance. I am sorry to say this, but I am a spiritually selfish Christian.
Another one says ;
“A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones,” Proverbs 14:30.
I choose a sound heart for out of the heart flows the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23). Destabilize my heart and you have destroyed every issue in my life.
Therefore I reject envy. It is a root of sickness. I don’t want to walk around with rotten bones. I hate arthritis, I hate sickness. I love strong bones, I love the life of Jesus to be made manifest in my flesh hence I will envy no man. sorry still, don’t blame me, I am a spiritually selfish Christian.
In whatever condition I am, I will daily look to the grace of God to fulfill His Ministry upon my life.
I am not competing with anyone. I am only serving my master in the capacity and the level of grace he has bestowed on me. I will answer for my grace and so is every one.
Another one says;
“He that diligently seeketh good procureth favor: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him,” Proverbs 11:27.
When you look at people, what are looking to see? Their mistakes or their capabilities? Do you seek to see the good or the evil in them? because evil is in all of us.
When we seek the good of others the favour of God rests upon us but when we seek to find fault in and with people, when we seek mischief it shall come upon us. We shall surely find what we sick.
This is why I must be selfish still. I hate mischief coming upon me, thus I will seek to see only the good in people and help lift them up. I love favour, therefore I must remain a spiritually selfish christian.
Another one says;
“Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him,” Proverbs 26:27.
A stone to be rolled back on me? I do not want to be crushed. Oh I love the life Jesus has given me, daily feasting on His unsearchable riches.
I don’t want a pit kind of life. I love abundance of life and I want to really live and not die. Therefore, I will not dig a pit for any man. I will not set a trap for any man because I am a spiritually selfish Christian.
Living a life of love is not an option, it is the route of escape from depression, unforgiveness, sickness and many such things.
In an encounter with The LORD this morning, I heard, “I AM blessing your storehouses!”
The Spirit witnessed;
“The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which The LORD thy God giveth thee,” Deuteronomy 28:8.
Blessings in Christ,
