Child of God…episode ~2

The Blessing Unfolding

When does the blessing unfold? The blessing unfolds when you choose to wait on God and his timing and in the mist of you waiting, you continue praising and being thankful. The blessing doesn’t unfold just because you think you’ve had enough. It unfolds in God’s perfect timing, a timing that he deems is the right time for you. And then at some point there is a break-through and then there it is, the unexpected happens and you wonder if its real, your blessing.

So, how does the blessing unfold? There are three ways that I believe the blessing unfolds and that is by faith, hope, and charity. I will all too happily unfold on sharing about faith during this episode………

Count on trusting God

There are your scriptural texts, definitions, and commentaries on what faith is but in a condensed straight-forward truth, faith comes down to this one thing, trust. Faith is trust. If you are in need of a blessing that doesn’t come by worry or complaining about your problem. If you can relate, in fact, the more you hear yourself complaining, the more you can feel your trust in God becoming less and less dominant over your situation. It doesn’t come by becoming a victim of being needy and wanting people to have pity upon you just to get what you want. It comes by trusting that your situation will change because you choose to not complain. You choose to not become bitter. You choose to not become anxious. You choose to not become jealous. You choose to not become worrisome but to simply make a declaration that you will place your trust in the one who, if all others do, will not abandon you in your storm.

It can be hard to trust after you’ve been hurt so many times. Bridges are formed, walls are put up and you find yourself struggling to maintain a balance of assurance by not allowing anyone in. Your domestic state can seem scattered and even torn down with yourself or even with your family but there is another assurance that can build all that back up again. I read this scripture text in Jeremiah 31:4 that says, “Again I will build you and you will be rebuilt, O Virgin Israel! You will again be adorned with your tambourines and timbrels. And go out to the dances of those who celebrate.” The background of this text was brokenness and captivity. People and families being broken and scattered about. There was both destruction in civility and in the church but yet, the Lord raised the people back up from being broken and rebuilt a body of people to not only unfold blessings but to also unfold a celebration.

We see the word rebuilt as perhaps rebuilding a building but as an ecclesiastical term, rebuilt meant prosperity. In that text God chose to prosper a people not only with reframing the church ordinance but also a governmental ordinance. Thereafter, after God rebuilds, after he restores, after he blesses you, there comes a time for celebration. As we can see from the text, the people celebrated. They didn’t celebrate carnally; they celebrated joyfully and holy.

As you trust God in your life to rebuild {prosper} you, know that although the struggle is hard, it is often times that when are you torn down and brought to what seems total devastation from destruction is when the Lord is making his most finest and eloquent entry into your life.

This is the blessing that God wants to unfold in your life. A blessing of prosperity as you trust him. He will turn the tide, turn your whole ship around and sail you into a direction of a masterful blessing that only he as a creator can do. After the blessing comes a celebration, comes a time to give thanks.

Celebrate now what the Lord has and will do for you!!! Shout! Leap! Jump! Dance! Celebrate!

He wants you to be able to celebrate! He wants you to be able to dance joyfully giving him praise and honor. Praise him until there is no more strength left in your body. Praise him because when praises go up, you can look forward to an unfolding blessing to come down.

So that time doesn’t go by without me saying this please have a safe, uplifting, and blessed Easter Sunday! Celebrate Christ the Risen Savior! That’s a blessing worth celebrating all within itself.
