DAILY MEDITATION

January 27, 2019

And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways. And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee. And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee. The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow. And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

Deuteronomy 28:1-14

 

The pieces of our lives as seen separate and distinct from one another can and will make you think things are hopeless and impossible, however, God challenges us to see each piece of our lives as connected and despite and inspire of their individuality to see peace, harmony with the will of God.  God has declared as well as gone before us and is with us to ensure that His promises will be fulfilled, we would LIVE blessed.  You and I, as we seek to live in the promises of God, are challenged to operate in the framework of what He has declared, living a blessed life, in peace, harmony with the will of God.  Peace is not the absence of conflict but instead seeing the whole picture of the pieces of our life and the promises of God as connected and building block to a harmonic life in which we can LIVE, and not just live but Live Fully.  Operate in your framework, within the promises of God for your life and see that as the ultimate end thus viewing the individual pieces of your life as building blocks to that end.  To see your individual pieces as a part of the whole, one must focus on the whole and sacrifice in the pieces, the situations of your life so that the whole will be made manifest.  As God did through Christ, to whom we are made in the image of, offered Himself up willing with the whole picture in His view we too must to do so in our circumstances.  Stop allowing the individual pieces of your life to drive your narrative, it is your promise that should be in the driving seat and as a result you can offer up yourself for the fulfillment of your promises.  The pieces may cause hurt, suffering, and out right death to you as you exist in the flesh but be assured that you are who God says you are and you will rise, the whole picture, fulfillment of God promises in your life.  Open yourself up to the floodgates of God’s blessings, abundance by giving, giving of yourself so that the life you now live in the flesh will be lived in the faith of the Son of God, your promises realized, who gave Himself for you to LIVE.  LIVE by operating in your framework, offering up yourself to your promises, and open the floodgates of blessing, the rain of God’s love and abundance in and over your life!
