• “If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is.” – Amy Carmichael

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.

  • “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon
