The Full Blessing Of The Lord

If you happen to be reading this or if someone happens to be reading this to you or for you, then know this God has truly blessed you. After all its a blessing to be alive and everyday, that one lives is a blessing. Yes we all have had our good days , as well as our bad days, but through it all God has always been there for each of us. Just like the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea or the simple animals or  mammals on land . Just as God has provided for them, he will always do for his most prized creation man. For God our Father in Heaven loves us all and will continue to bless us always. The question that should be asked is how does one receive the full blessing of the Lord? Or how do I get God our Father in Heaven to answer my prayers? For the answers to  these questions, I have an easy answer. Try doing the small or simple things that God requires and he will pour out more blessings than one can receive .My mother would always say to me as a child, that if one could master doing the small or simple things right , then the big things or bigger challenges in life becomes easy. She would always say, Chuck make up your bed, clean up your room, pay attention in class and always no matter what you do respect your elders. If you do these things correctly she explained , then you will grow up into a productive individual and a man of Gods own heart. As she continued to explain to me that we are all Gods children, but so few of us actually acknowledge that fact.(Luke 12:8 "I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God.)
As one would think about my mothers words and the Bible verse just quoted one thought should come to mind, doing the right things in life should be simple, but in reality its not. The reason why is because the world we live in is imperfect and also because there is an evil  presence ( the devil) around us, that keeps or is constantly influencing us from doing even the simple things right. That is why one of the simple things that God our Father in Heaven requires us to do , is so important, prayer .What are the other simple things that pleases God, that can help us get the full blessing from the Lord? The answer to that question is simple, by praying everyday, giving our Father in Heaven, thanks and praise. As simple as that may sound, many of us sometime neglect even the the smallest things and many us forget just how important they are. Going to church, paying one tithes, offerings, prayer daily and giving praise, may sound simple or small. But as my mother would always say to me as a child , "By doing the small or simple things right in life, in time will  make big or larger things seem easy". To put is plainly if one does whats required by God then its, in his promise that they will receive the full blessing of the Lord.
Have a blessed day,
Charles
Psalm 24:5 They will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God their Savior.

Psalm 103:11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
Psalm 112:1 Praise the LORD. Blessed are those who fear the LORD, who find great delight in his commands.

A Miracle



If you happen to be reading this, I have a question to ask you. Have you ever been or reached a moment in your life where nothing short of a miracle can help or save you? When these moments occur, its come without notice or warning. A phone call in the middle of the night , a strange text at the end of the day or an unexpected knock at the door, can sometime bring bad news, so harsh that it can either break your heart or spirits. During these times the strongest of us can feel or become helpless. Why? Because in some cases there is no one other than God that can deliver or get us out of our current situations.Whats worse than that most people and even some of our own family members during these times don't want to have anything to do with you or they may turn their backs. The question I have for you today is do you believe in miracles? Do you believe that even today, that God still touches his people and preforms miracles? The reason why I ask these questions, because in certain situations these are the things that  test our beliefs, convictions and our own faith in God.
As you ponder those questions, I have a question of my own to ask you. Are you in need of a blessing, help or a miracle? If your answer is yes, then right now at this very moment, I would like you to pray with me. Oh precious God, Our Father in Heaven, we need you. The world we live in is turning into a terrible place. Our children are going astray and our men or women are having an identity crisis. The men want to be women and the women want to be men. The divorce rate is at an all time high, families are being torn apart and jobs are hard to find . Touch them father, heal them,  rescue these lost souls and restore them to their rightful place. Let your light and your glory shine brightly through them. On their behalf , Father I ask you to help the person that's reading this at this moment. What ever problem that they may face, let them know that they are not alone and that you will never leave them. For you are the Alpha, the Omega the beginning and the end. You have all power in your hands and even in today's time you still  preform countless miracles. As this person seeks your face, heal them, show them love and remove any obstacle or anything that may cause them pain. For they are in need of a miracle, please provide it for them in Jesus name we pray. Amen!
To you who have just read and prayed with me, I would like to say," May God continue to bless you, then keep you safe from harm. I also want you to know that God still cares, he loved you before you were born and still loves you even today. As you go through your struggles, know this you will never be alone.Why? Because its his promise and its in his word. God has always been with you and if you just reach out to him, he will hear your prayer. If you seek a blessing or a miracle, all you have to do is ask and very soon after that you will be blessed with a miracle.
Have a blessed day,
Charles

John 16:23 In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
