• “God is sovereign, that is He is the boss. He is in control. He is the supreme ruler of heaven and earth for all of eternity. He is Lord. We don’t make Him Lord. He is Lord. And joy comes when we acknowledge that He is Lord; we rest in His Lordship. We trust His sovereignty, and we surrender to it. That means that God has the right to give, and God has the right to take away.” – Nancy DeMoss

Be Blessed and Be a Blessing by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/27/11

Be Blessed and Be a Blessing

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When God blesses us, He doesn’t intend for us to just keep those blessings to ourselves. He gives to us so we can be channels of blessing to others. I’ve often said to young people as we were parting ways, “Now remember, be blessed and be a blessing.”

That’s similar to what God said to Abram in Genesis chapter 12. After calling him to a new land, God said, “I will make you a great nation. I will bless you, and you shall be a blessing.”

Ultimately, we have been greatly blessed by Abram, since God used the nation that he birthed to usher in the Messiah.

How has God blessed you? Has he given you food? A job? A home? Freedom to worship? Freedom from sin? How can you share those things with others and become a channel for God’s blessing?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Jesus, who so often says “Whoever loves Me…” “Do you love Me?” is concerned about our LOVE! He is concerned about a special kind of love…He who has loved us so much wants to possess us completely, with everything we are and have. Jesus gave Himself wholly and completely for us. Now His love is yearning for us to surrender ourselves and everything that we are to Him, so that He can really be our “first love” – Basilea Schlink

Verse of the Day

But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. — Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)
