The Key To Abundant Blessing
When we love someone, it is easy to share what we have and who we are. The same principle holds true for our heavenly Father.
Scripture often referred to David as a man after God’s own heart. Although he was not perfect, he loved God and fellowshipped with Him. And in Psalm 51:16-17 “For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.”, we find that David had discovered the secret to a relationship with God.
He had discovered the two sacrifices that are always acceptable:
- A broken spirit
- A broken and contrite heart
God doesn’t want fleshly, forced obedience. Rather, He is looking for loving obedience. Do I see Him as a rigid mean boss, ready to ship me for every mistake I make? No, He is not like that. He is a tenderhearted heavenly Father, full of mercy and grace.
David said: “Your loving kindness is better than life.” (Psalm 63:3). David had discovered the basis for true riches, and as a result of his relationship with God, he was abundantly blessed.
The key to seeing God’s abundant blessing is in asking Him to meet your need. God stands ready to meet every need you have, yet He desires for you to seek His power, to enter His presence and request His help. Admitting your need and seeking God’s provision is not a sign of weakness, but is the first step in seeing God’s blessings in your life.God’s blessings are complete, thorough and perfect. God’s saints have no need of any other kind of blessing. God’s blessings which He, in his awesome grace and mercy, has already bestowed on all true believers.
