God wants you to increase more and more. God is saying, "You haven't seen your best days yet!" His name is El Shaddai — not El Cheapo!
The Lord has been mindful of us;
He will bless us;
He will bless the house of Israel;
He will bless the house of Aaron.
Today's Confession: I am always on God's mind and I will make Him first in my mind. I will seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
Psalm 115:12 says, "The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us..." Look what's on the mind of God - US. God sits on His throne thinking of how He can bless us. And the Bible says that He never sleeps nor slumbers, so while we're sleeping, He's thinking up ways to bless us when we awake.
He said, "I'll bless you coming in, I'll bless you going out. I'll bless you in the city, and I'll bless you in the field..." God's got blessings chasing us down everywhere we go. If you say, "Well, my life's not like that. Nothing ever happens to me like that." It could be because of a lack of understanding of the Father's love.
Psalm 115 continues to say, "...he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron. He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great. The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children. (Ps. 115:12-14)
God wants you to increase more and more. God is saying, "You haven't seen your best days yet!" His name is El Shaddai — not El Cheapo! The nature of God is to bless us. He can't help Himself! He does exceeding, abundantly above all that you could possibly ask or think. If you can think it, God says, "I can do exceeding, abundantly above that!" When you remove the limitations, you'll find that this extravagant God will do extravagant things in your life!
One of the greatest joys that Carolyn and I share is to see this work in our children. They have watched God do the miraculous in this family time and time again. They have witnessed God's restoration in our lives. And now that they are adults and are having children of their own, it is a joy to see God doing the same things for them that He's done for us!
We've taught them that God's not against them, He is for them, and no weapon formed against them shall prosper! But we've also taught them that you don't "play church" with this. God wants total commitment. If you want to be blessed, then be totally committed to God. Put Him first! Don't pursue the blessings, pursue God and let the blessings pursue you! God said that the blessings will chase you down, come on you and overtake you!
So what is on the mind of God? You. Even when we disappoint Him, He still loves us. Even when we fall short, He still loves us. Why? Because He is long-suffering! He doesn't write us off when we make a mistake. He's the God of the second chance!
