We are blessed to be a blessing to others. And God does not look at how much we can give, but He looks at our hearts and our capacity to give. Even though we are going through troubles, the joy of giving is still in us for it is God who abundantly blesses and gives us generous hearts.
Today, choose to bless others through whatever form and regardless of amount. For generosity that comes from the heart is important to God.
God knows us more than we know ourselves. We are given according to our abilities and we should make full use of what God has entrusted unto us. Offer everything to the Lord and be excellent in what you do! #VOTD#CRCII#Abundance#VerseOfTheDay
Let God be the center of your life and acknowledge Him as King over your everything. Trust in the Lord daily and forget your worries for He is enough.
Surrender all to your Father in Heaven!
Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." #QuoteOfTheDay#GodCentered#Surrender#TrustInTheLord#LetGodMove#CRCII#QOTD
The measure of God's blessing is according to His riches and wisdom; He supplies in abundance and even more than our needs. The Lord desires that we experience an outpour of blessing and He is a generous God that He blesses us until He is satisfied. So you do not have to worry about your needs because when God pours the blessing, it is always more than enough.
The Lord is our Great Provider! Everything that you need He already knows, no matter how big or small. He wants to bless you and prosper you so that you can fulfill His plan and purpose...so you can abundantly live a full life!
Focus on the Lord your God and seek Him earnestly. Be rest assured that He determines to provide for all your needs in Christ Jesus.
The Lord's desire is for us to experience a life of prosperity and abundance. Therefore, be assured that we can expect blessings from Him. But remember, we can never dictate on God on what, when or how things should be. Learn to trust in Him and His perfect ways.
Let us not grow weary as we wait upon Him until He fullfills His promises to us. Because He is the God who keeps His promises!
Nothing is impossible with God. Take hold of His word and speak what you believe in. Blessings are flowing from the heavens above and we must desire it in our hearts for us to receive them. Fight for your blessings!
Prayer and intercession is a way of contending with what God intends. But, how do we know about what to pray for? It is by reading the bible, for it contains promises, blessings and reveals His intentions for us. So, be faithful in praying for the things that are of the Heart of God because as far as He is concerned these promises are already fulfilled.
No matter how long and challenging the season of waiting might seem, the one whose hope is rooted in Jesus Christ will live with joyful expectation. So we encourage you today to make no room for doubt in your heart. If you believe that God is serious about His promise, then Jesus guarantees that you will experience the power of His word coming true in your life! •
The Lord desires our obedience first and foremost. Remember that rejecting His word is equal to rejecting Him. Our aim then, should not be to please God with fancy yet empty offerings but with a heart that wholeheartedly obeys and follows after Him.

"How long would it be?" That's usually our heart’s struggle when it comes to waiting. In reality, God is letting time tick by because He’s also waiting for us. He first wants to see His children wise and mature enough to handle the blessing. Remember that outside God’s timing, a blessing might just end up being a curse instead of what it’s really worth.
So today, ask yourself, "What is it that God wants me to learn in this season of waiting?” Pray for it and surrender your life to His will.

Waiting gives birth to wisdom. For the entire process of waiting upon God is an opportunity for Him to release His wisdom and power; and for us to receive His new revelations, hear more of His word and experience more of His goodness.
So today, let us not waste the opportunity of letting God speak to us. For as we have our encounter with Him, there will be an impartation of His wisdom to us, wisdom that can never be inherited but is something that we can only possess once we learn how to trust and wait upon Him.
The Lord delights in a heart that is set right before Him. In order to get there, He will bring to light thoughts and attitudes that do not glorify Him. God’s correction might be painful, but trust that He’s doing it out of love and always to our advantage.
Your body is a blessing; a gift to steward. In the same manner you desire a vibrant spiritual life, it is imperative to consider your physical health as well. Do not neglect your need for sustenance and rest for this is what our Heavenly Father wants for you, too (see Gen 14:18, Matt 6:11). How do you take care of your body? Feel free to share in the comments below!
Every good thing comes from God and is a gift that He wants you to enjoy for His glory alone. As the blessings overflow, do a little heart check: Are you taking good care of what God has entrusted you?
Today, the Lord wants you to know that if you abide in Him, you can face your giants and conquer them. Nothing in this world can stand against you, for you are with God.
God, in the goodness of His heart, has already determined to bless us. Here are practical ways we can invoke God's blessings to come down: •A meaningful touch (Gen 48:12-16)
A pat on the back, a hug, or the laying on of hands in prayer impart love, life, and blessing.
•A spoken word (Genesis 49:8-12)
A spoken word or spoken blessing come from the heart of God. When given hand in hand with a meaningful touch, power and love are released!
•The one who blesses must attach high value to the one being blessed (2 Kings 2:9)
God's blessing is not a one-size-fits-all thing. He molds us so our character and lifestyle will fit the blessing. Some people want the blessing but not a relationship with God. There must be a relationship between the Blesser and the one being blessed. Just as Elisha asked for a double portion of Elijah's anointing, there is a special blessing for those who are in a relentless pursuit of God and what He wants to do.
•Releasing/describing a vision or imagery (Genesis 49:10)
Sometimes God allows you to see visions or imagery that do not make sense to you. Still, release the word because these come from the heart of God.
For the blessee, the blessing declared to you may be for you or generations after you. Just have faith that God will do what He said he would because He is faithful!
The Lord's goodness is the same yesterday, today, and forever. His love outlasts all the difficulties of life and it never fails. May you be filled with God's love and may it overflow in your life.⠀
God has made every blessing in the storehouses of heaven available to us through His son Jesus Christ. Through Him, we can walk in faith and be bearers of His love daily.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
Ephesians 1:3-4 NKJV
"That simple act of our parents laying their hands on us allows the impartation of the Lord's blessing, power, and love in our lives." Parents, take this opportunity to let God use you to bless your children. Laying your hands on their heads or even patting them on their shoulders will bring forth blessing and power in their lives.
And children, take this moment to say a prayer of thanksgiving to our Father in Heaven who has given us earthly parents who will protect us and lead us to the Lord's blessing and love. -
Today, remind yourself that the Lord knows what He is doing in your life and that He is always in control. Claim that all of His plans of prosperity and hope be fulfilled in you and through you.
Mention/tag your friend/s who might need an encouragement today, reminding them that God is always in control and that He's got them in the palm of His hands.
Yeah we still here! Our love for one another could never be diminished. God makes no mistakes & he's placed you all in my life for a reason. I love every last one of you & thank you for your support #sisterlylove#badieswhobrunch#LBV 💋#CRCII
Today we laid my 💙 to rest. My Heart was full of emotions, eyes full of tears, and my soul was full of grief but all in all it feels good to know that we've shared a tremendous amount of moments/memories together... From Richie's house, to your parents house, to Ms Payne's House, to Our Apartment, to NaNa's couch, to my Apt... No matter our circumstances we've always remained family/lovers/friends. You love(d) me as much as I love you. Rest on Forever & I'll meet you in Heaven. (PS. You still can't play ball 🏀😭) #CRCII#no1willTarnishYourname#norWillyourdeathBeInVain
