Memorise - Isaiah 45:19 : I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
Read: Isaiah 45:17-19
Bible in one year: 2 Chronicles 7-9
God is so generous that He does not mind sharing His kingdom with His
favourites. May you be part of those that will co-reign with Jesus
eternally. Concerning God's magnanimity, if you check through the Bible,
you will see how generous God is. Abraham served God and he was
blessed. He was a wealthy man (Genesis 24:34-35). When it was the turn
of his son Isaac, God so blessed him that he became the envy of a nation
(Genesis 26:12-14). Jacob also was tremendously blessed by God to the
extent of having extreme wealth (Genesis 30:43). Three successive
generations kept increasing in blessings as they continued to serve God.
Do you know that if you obey the scriptures to raise your children in
God's ways and they do the same with their own children, God's blessings
in your generations will be on an increasing level?
Apart from the family of Abraham, another Bible character that benefited
from God's generosity was David. Besides blessing David spiritually and
making him a king, God blessed him with great wealth according to 1
Chronicles 22:7,14-16. When it was time to build for God, even when God
said David will not build for him, his personal donation for building
God's house was estimated at $4 billion. A fellow who can give such an
amount cannot be a poor man by any standard. But after him came Solomon
his son. Boy was he blessed! 2 Chronicles 1:14-15 says his wealth was so
much that gold and silver were like ordinary stones during his reign.
In other words, the choicest things were common place with him
(Ecclesiastes 2:3-10). A time came that he got virtually everything his
eyes wanted (Ecclesiastes 2:10). Not too many people among the world's
richest can say that about themselves. According to Isaiah 45:19, God
has not called you to seek Him in vain. If you are God's chosen and you
preserve yourself in holiness, obedience, sacrificial giving and service
to God, know that you will share from God's generosity. And if you can
raise generations to follow God and even beat your record of service,
God's blessings will be on an increasing proportion upon your
generations. Are you serving God? Continue and refuse to stop. Soon in
your very life, it shall be evident that God is extremely generous. This
season, God will make you a candidate of His extreme generosity.
Prayer point: Father, I believe You are extremely generous. Please let
people begin to see the evidence of Your extreme generosity in my life
