“The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend many nations, but you shall not borrow” (Deuteronomy 28:12).
The blessings of the heaven and the eternity are much greater than the worldly blessings. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3).
The heaven is like a warehouse. It is a treasury; a big supermarket. God is powerful to send any blessing from whichever position to you who are the children of God. When Solomon prayed for wisdom, God also gave him richness and exaltation which he did not ask for.
God is compassionate and full of grace. He never measures whatever he gives. He gives unlimitedly. He will throw open the floodgates of heaven and bless you amazingly. Every day we call Him “Our Father in heaven”. “As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him” (Psalm 103:13).
God dwelling in the heavens and even in the highest heaven (I Kings 8:27). “For He looked down from the height of His sanctuary; from heaven the Lord viewed the earth” (Psalm 102:19).
Once, a sister came to me to pray. Her husband was a incessant drunkard. They had many children and were starving in poverty. But God spoke to her with compassion and said, “Daughter, do not be afraid. I will throw open the floodgates of heaven and bless you amazingly”
Though it was hard to believe, she placed her faith in those words. She declared her faith saying “ For with God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37). Do you know what happened?
An elderly woman who was her friend several years before, then living in England died after executing a will in which she had gifted all her properties to this sister. She came in possession of several crores of rupees and thus the poverty disappeared and she prospered.
Dear children of God, believe in God. He is capable of changing the situation miraculously in a minute. He would open a new way and a new dwelling for you.
To meditate: “By the God of your father who will help you and by the Almighty who will bless you with blessings of heaven above” (Genesis 49:25).
