Bless someone today. The greatest thing you can do today, is to be a
blessing to someone. God has placed someone in your life today for you to
His instrument of blessing. This might be some sort of assistance you give,
a kind word, being a sympathetic ear.....or it could be in a way they won't
even know, such as a prayer or an anonymous gesture to help them. It is
amazing when we concentrate each day on how we can bless others, how much
in turns blesses us.
Most of the time we get so caught up in our own lives, our own problems, that we
forget others around us who are also having difficulties. You will be
how different your life looks when you start to take the focus off of your
own circumstances and try to become a blessing to someone else. I have no
doubt that Jesus had many difficulties that anyone who lives on this earth
has. But in all the Gospel accounts of His life, it is not His problems we
see Him concerned with, but the problems of others. This is due to the fact
that He knew the promises of God and trusted God with His problems. How
great to get to a point in our walk with the Lord, where our faith is so
strong that we virtually ignore our own problems to live for others,
and knowing God is working on our behalf.
Today, I challenge you to bless someone, someone you know, a stranger. God
will show you. One of the ways many of you have been blessing others is by
going to our website, www.liveprayer.com and signing up friends and family
members to our daily devotional. Everyday I get email from people saying,
don't know how I began to get these, but they were exactly what I needed".
This is an example of how you can bless someone and touch their life.
I pray that today will be a special day. It is a day unique unto itself,
will never be repeated. Make it extra special by blessing someone, and have
the faith to know that God is blessing you in return. I love you and will
praying for you.
