Topic: Blessing is a Reward for Support:
MY BIRTHDAY APPRECIATION
Bible Reading: 1 Chronicles 29:13-17
“13 Now, therefore, our God, we thank thee and praise thy glorious name.
14 But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.
15 For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.
16 O LORD our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee a house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own.
17 I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee.”
It’s another historic and joyous day for me and my entire family as I celebrated my 51st birthday yesterday. I give glory and adoration to my Creator, I AM that I AM, the Ancient of Days, the only One that provides for ALL my needs and protects me from ALL evil, glory be to His holy name. if not because my God is always there for me, what can I do? Nothing! it is only God that makes my days joyful and meaningful. There is no doubt that a life without Christ is useless and a miserable life that will not experience any happiness as far as living on this earth is concerned.
Secondly, I thank everyone that has been part of this glorious celebration, indeed all of you have done wonders to make the day successful. There is no way I can appreciate you than to bless you with the word of God and prayers.
Our Daily Devotional Prayer Bombs for today is focused on “Blessing is a Reward for Support.” You have supported me in one way or the other to celebrate my birthday, and it is necessary for me to bless you for this. My God said: “I bless those that bless you…” Genesis 12:3. Blessing is a reward for the support.
I believe you may be asking yourself that did I support this man for his birthday celebration? I don’t think I have supported his ministry or family? Beloved, don’t be confused! You are supporting my ministry directly or indirectly which I will explain to you now.
How do you support us?
There are many ways one can support a man of God or the ministry, which includes:
- Prayers – 2 Corinthians 1:11
“You also joining in helping us through your prayers, so that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the favour bestowed on us through the prayers of many.”
Do you know that a short prayer you sent to me for my birthday is a fire that triggered me to know that people are praying for me as the Bible commanded? Your prayer for my family and the ministry is a strong gift that I’m expecting from you all the time. 1 Thessalonians 5:25
“Praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned;” Colossians 4:3
There is a reward for every prayer you pray for me and my family.
“God will repay each person according to what they have done.” Romans 2:6
Brethren, I urge you to continue to support my ministry in your prayers. And remember the word of God, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse, and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:3.
2. Sharing Your Testimonies.
“Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples!” 1 Chronicle 16:8
Sharing and proclaiming the deeds of God among the people is another commandment to support the ministry. Every testimony you share on how God has blessed you through this ministry is another meaningful way you are supporting us. testimony is a powerful tool that brings unbelievers to God, it’s a tool that motivates others to return back to God, and it’s the easiest way to preach the gospel of the Lord to others.
Nebuchadnezzar is one of the prominent people that proclaim the greatness of God through testimony.
“Nebuchadnezzar the king, to all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth: Peace is multiplied to you. I thought it good to declare the signs and wonders that the Most High God has worked for me. How great are His signs, And how mighty His wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And His dominion is from generation to generation.” Daniel 4:2-3
Sharing what God has done for you is very essential and acceptable. You should see it good to show the signs and wonders that the Most-High God has done for you. Hidden the good things that God has done for you is a criminal attitude.
In Luke 8:39, our Lord Jesus directed a man that received a miracle to go and tell his friends about what happened to him.
“Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him.” Luke 8:39 ESV
The miracles and blessings you received from Jesus Christ must be proclaimed among the people. Don’t hide the goodness and the wonders of God!
3. Tell others about Daily Devotional Prayer Bombs.
The Psalmist said: “I will also speak of your testimonies before kings and shall not be put to shame,” Psalm 119:46
Many people have been supported us through sharing D-D-P-B with their families and friends. Not only sharing testimony but also sharing our Daily Devotional Prayer Bombs to others. Send the links to your contacts on social media, etc.
Our Lord Jesus emphasized that “So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven,” Matthew 10:32
One of the best ways to acknowledge Jesus Christ is by sharing the messages you receive from others like Daily Devotional Prayer Bombs.
4. Financial and materials support – Luke 6:38
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38
There is no doubt that supporting the men and women of God with your money, and other possessions is an open door for more blessing. I always say it, the first car that I used as a minister of God was given to me free. Beloved, Daily Devotional Prayer Bombs need your support. The little money you give us has a reward from God.
“Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.” Deuteronomy 15:10
Remember, there is no way to preach the gospel without spending money. We urge you to continue supporting us with your possessions as God touch your heart. No amount you spend to support us that is too big or too small. Make a decision to support us today, and God will reward you for doing it.
5. Encourage and tell us our errors. Galatians 6:1
“Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness;” Galatians 6:1
Another set of people that I cherish in my life is those that tell us our errors or mistakes not criticism. Such people are an agent of success for the work of God. They are people that point us to our errors. They were the instrument of positive change! I appreciate them all.
“Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbour, for we are members one of another.” Ephesians 4:25 ESV
Once again, I thank you for your love, kindness, support, prayer and encouragement. I cherish you, and God will continue to strengthen you to do more in Jesus name. Remember, everything you have is God that permits it to be yours, therefore use it to glorify God.
“O Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided to build You a house for Your holy name, it is from Your hand, and all is Yours.” 1 Chronicle 29:16
A life without Christ is useless and a miserable life that will not experience any happiness as far as living on this earth is concerned. Be generous!
