The Universe

For your consideration….

Today’s message is about “Blessings.” Even more than that, it is about our power and Blessings.

In Bruce Wilkinson’s book, The Prayer of Jabez, he talks about how the word, Blessings, is watered down with over use and no real thought or energy put into it. He writes, “To bless in the biblical sense means to ask for or to impart supernatural favor. When we ask for God’s blessing, we’re not asking for more of what we could get for ourselves. We’re crying out for the wonderful unlimited goodness that only God has the power to know about or give to us.”  Proverbs 10:22,TLB, says “The Lord’s blessing is our greatest wealth; all our work adds nothing to it.”

We tend to overuse and under expect when we say or ask for “Blessings.” They are a big deal and we have access to them through our unlimited access to God. The key is to “let go and let God.”

The purpose of today’s message is not to discourage us from asking for Blessings, quite the opposite. It reminds us of our power and asks us to ask for more of them with intention. Yes, think about the power of Blessings and ask for them without judgment. Don’t put limits on them. Ask for them and let God decide on the Blessings to be bestowed.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Ask for Blessings with the intention that God hears you and knows the very best way to fulfill them.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-A beautiful day.

-Our critter was back. Oh, Critter Control, catch this guy.

-Talking with my Sis. That always helps.

-A good book.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
