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 be 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 God, in turn, blesses us.
Most of the time, we are so caught up in our own lives, our own problems, that we forget others around us who are also having difficulties. You will be amazed at 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 have. 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, trusting 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 the Daily Devotional. Every day I get emails from people saying, ?I 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 and 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 be praying for you.
