Be willing to give God your vessel

Many times children of God want to receive and be blessed by God yet they are not willing to give anything to the work of God. Giving in the eyes of God does not only mean in monetary terms but how we are willing to sacrifice ourselves for the work of God. “For whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung that I may win Christ” (Philippians 3:8).jesus bible

Those that allow their vessel to be used are guaranteed to receive and be blessed. Jesus Christ borrowed Simon’s ship to serve as a platform. This was at a time that Simon and his friends had toiled all the night yet they were not able to catch anything. Later on we see Jesus telling Simon to launch into the dip where there was a huge fish catch. Simon never realized that by allowing Jesus to use their boat, the result was receiving the blessing of fish that they were not even able to carry on their own.

The Bible tells us the story of the widow of Zarephath whom Elijah had requested a morsel of bread. Even though the woman’s first response indicated that she did not have a lot, Elijah still told her to use whatever she had to prepare a meal for him first before making a meal for herself and her son.

The economy of the Lord was just introduced to this woman which states that; “Give to me first, whatever you have, and then will I give back to you”. The result was that the woman was told that the barrel shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sends rain. If one can compare the meal that was given to Elijah, and the blessings that she received it is just better to listen and obey so that we are able to receive what has been intended for us.

The Bible also tells us of the many stories where people fasted in order to have God move in many situations. Fasting is a sacrifice that helps to make the body weak while the spirit becomes strong. Many times God has moved in miraculous ways during such times.

All these can be exercised by children of God in order to be able to receive God’s blessings from God which are always guaranteed by our God if asked properly. Ask and it shall be given, seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Mathew 7:7).

    This is very true, Cindy;
    . . . We need to share and help others, if possible; and it is always possible.

    . . . “Are we not blessed so as to be a blessing to others?” – Genesis 12:2
    . . . “What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?” – George Eliot
    . . . “What is to be successful in life; if not to know even, that one life has breathed easier because you have lived?” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

    . . . Truth is, . . .
    While life’s problems can make a person come closer to God (as he/she prays for God’s intervention), the same problems, can equally make a person forget/dismiss God, if persistent.
    . . . You see . . .
    “You cannot worship God or love your neighbours on an empty stomach.” – Woodrow Wilson. Also, “There are people in this world (localities, streets, neighbourhood) who are so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in form of bread.” – Mahatma Gandhi

    Anyone who has ever helped someone in life, will recall hearing that someone saying “Mulungu akudalitseni” or “Mulungu alemekezeke” upon receiving the help.
    . . . Now . . .
    What can be more fulfilling to the soul than making someone mention the name of God; and you being the reason? Trust me, to help others or share what you have with others; is an act of worship.
    . . . Let us worship thus, not just by going to church or mosque or mountains or wherever; but also by our actions; through, inter alia; helping others, specifically the needy.
