Showers of Blessing

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14

God created us to be a blessing to the entire people who live on the face of the earth. Words of blessing must come out of our mouth which is going to be a blessing and a comfort for the people in sorrow. Also, our mouths should be filled with praises for the Lord. 2 Chronicles 20:19 tells us,” then the Levites of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel with voices loud and high. In 2 Chronicles 20:22 it says,” Now when they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. When we start praising the Lord, the enemy’s fortress will be destroyed and they will flee before us in seven ways. Now we have eight doors open before us.

Proverbs 4:24 says, “Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you.” As Christians (believers) we need to be very careful with our words. We are the temple of God and the Spirit of God dwells in us. So we need to be holy. Matthew 5:37 says, “And let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.” Moreover, death and life are in the power of the tongue Proverbs 18:21. So let praises and blessing come out of our mouth all the time.

God wants our thoughts and our meditations in line with God’s Word so that He can bless us. The Lord hates a lying tongue, a heart that devises wicked plans and a false witness who speaks lies. Proverbs 6:16

Joshua 1:8 tells us to meditate on the Word of God day and night and do what the Word says to make our way prosperous and to have good success. Moreover, as we read in Psalm 1:3 that those who delight in the law of the Lord shall be blessed like a tree planted by the waters whose leaves will not wither and whatever they do shall prosper. What a wonderful promise!

Be Blessed!

  1. Thank you for this post ! Matthew 5:37 says, “And let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.” - made me think a lot, most of the time it is difficult to say No- it may be to best friends, or even loved ones, we dont want to say NO coz we dont want to hurt them, but God specifically reminds us with this verse to be very cautious about your yes's and no's .

    There is a beautiful correlation when you write, I truly belive this is from the Lord, because no one connects like God does, and he has blessed you with the talent of writing, I am praying everyday that this might be a blessing to all who read.
