Open Heaven Devotional 22nd April 2023 MESSAGE:
Our God is very generous. When He decides to bless, He does so abundantly. For example, when the wedding hosts ran out of wine for their guests, Jesus gave them much better wine in abundance (John 2:1-11). Psalm 68:19 says, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.”
In Deuteronomy 28:1-2, He talks about great blessings – blessing so great that they’ll overtake you. The kind of blessing that will cause you to say, “Lord this is too much” will begin to come your way from now, in Jesus’ name.
Beyond loading you with blessings every day, God can make you so blessed that you will become a blessing to others. That is what He did through Solomon. In (1 Kings 3:13), God said He would bless Solomon so much that no king would be like him all through his life. Solomon’s blessing caused the Israelites to be blessed also. (1 Kings 10:27) says, “And the king made silver to be in Jerusalem as stones, and cedars made he to be as the sycomore trees that are in the vale, for abundance.”

God can do the same for you. He can bless you so much that no one in your generation will ever be poor again. This type of blessing however, comes to those who give sacrificially to God like Solomon did in (1 Kings 3:4).
In 2007, one young man came to me, saying he wanted to pay for the feeding at our next convention so I gave him a conservative estimate of what it would cost to feed one million people twice daily for a week. He said he would get back to me. I didn’t expect to see him again, but he came back the following week as promised and paid for it. Apparently, he had gone to get a loan from a bank because he couldn’t afford it. Before long, the same bank he took the loan from invited him to become their Managing Director. If you are willing to give sacrificially to God, He will also make you so blessed that you will become a blessing to others.
Father, please give me the grace to give sacrificially to You, in Jesus’ name.
