Crowned with Goodness.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: "You crown the year with Your bounty and goodness..." (Psalm 65:11)
TODAY'S WORD: The Lord has crowned your year with bounty and goodness! That means there is an abundant supply for whatever you may need spiritually, physically, emotionally and financially. He has also set up a system by which to bless you. It's the system of seed time and harvest. If you have a need in your life, sow a seed. For example, if you're lonely and need friends, sow a seed by being a friend to someone. If you have a financial need, pray and ask the Lord where you should sow a financial seed. The Bible says to give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over. That's God crowning your year with bounty and goodness. Do you need mercy? Sow seeds of mercy. The more you sow, the greater the harvest you will reap. Remember, He's already crowned your year with His goodness. Take a step of faith today and sow a seed!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:Father, thank You for supplying all of my needs according to Your riches in glory. I submit my resources to You and ask that You show me where I can sow a seed and be a blessing everywhere I go in Jesus' name! Amen.
Handfuls on Purpose.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: "And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God." (Deuteronomy 28:2).
TODAY'S WORD: Our God is a rewarder of those who seek Him! When you keep God first place and do your best to honor Him, Scripture says, "His blessings will chase you down and overtake you." That means you will come into increase, promotion and good breaks that you didnít necessarily deserve. Thatís God rewarding you for walking in His ways.
We see this principle in the Old Testament with Ruth. She was out in the fields following behind the workers and gathering up the leftover wheat that they missed. She was trying to take care of her mother-in-law, Naomi, but they were barely surviving. One day, the owner of the fields told the workers to leave handfuls of wheat on purpose for Ruth. Ruth came into blessings that were simply dropped at her feet.
Every one of us can look back and see times where God has left us handfuls on purpose-something that we didnít deserve or even ask for. We just stumbled into it. Thatís a "handful on purpose." I encourage you to always keep your expectancy up. Keep trusting God and obeying His voice because He is ready to bless you in unexpected ways today!
PRAYER FOR TODAY: Father, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I trust You as my provider; You are the One who cares for me. I acknowledge You with my love and thank You for leaving me 'handfuls on purpose' today in Jesusí name! Amen.
