Showers of Blessing!

“For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him with a shield” Psalm 5:12.

Prophet Elisha was a righteous man of God and the Shunamite lady and her husband had supernatural favor upon him. “And she said to her husband, “Look now, I know that this is a holy man of God, who passes by us regularly” 2 Kings 4:9. They made an upper room for Prophet Elisha with all that he needed. Elisha believed with all his heart that God was his source and did not accept any gift from man as we read in 2 Kings 5:16.

Daniel was one among the several young Hebrew men carried away from Jerusalem to Babylon. He was chosen to serve in the king’s palace. We read in Daniel 1:9, “Now God had brought Daniel into the favor and goodwill of the chief of the eunuchs.” We know how great Daniel was among the men of God who did not want to defile himself with the king’s delicacies.

In Luke 1:28 we see how angel Gabriel greets Mary, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” When the angel found that Mary was troubled and amazed by the greeting, he went on to say, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God” Luke 1:30. God chose Mary because He knew that she was not rebellious and that she loved the Lord. Moreover, she accepted the prophecy from the Lord with all her heart and replied, “Behold the maid servant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.”

The Philippian Jailer treated Paul and Silas just like any other prisoner. But things turned around when Paul and Silas started to pray and sing hymns to God (Acts 16:25). The result was an earthquake which turned the attitude of the jailer into supernatural favour as we read in Acts 16:30, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” The jailer took Paul and Silas to his house and washed their stripes and food was set before them. Above all, the jailer and his household accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior.

Dear readers, I encourage you to be strong in the Lord. I do not know what your present circumstances are but I know there is a good God in heaven whose eyes are on His people and is looking for ways to bless you in a supernatural way. He will let people have supernatural favor upon you. And nothing is impossible for Him.

Be Blessed!
