By learning to give God praise on a regular and continual basis our words speak blessings into our life. There is no room for pointless chatter or empty words, but expressions of power and life poured over our journey.
I recall a story about a missionary/evangelist pastor who was in conversation with a fellow believer. He paused in the middle and called out to the Lord, “Forgive me Heavenly Father for not giving you praise for fifteen minutes.” He had cultivated a lifestyle of continual praise to the point that it effected how he communicated with others and how long.
Blessings in Continual Sowing
King Solomon was wise to state that those who are bothered by clouds and wind (meaning they don’t work when things look bad) won’t put in their crops; therefore, they won’t have a harvest.
“He who observes the wind will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap.” (Ecclesiastes 11:4 NKJV)
He was right, but scripture also tells us that our giving needs to be continual in many areas.
“In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening do not withhold your hand (give again); for you do not know which will prosper, either this or that, or whether both alike will be good.” (Ecclesiastes 11:4,6 NKJV)
It’s hard to give up what we’ve been given sometimes, because our believer isn’t working the way it should. We say we trust God will supply all our needs, but only if we have the money to cover it if He doesn’t.
Inconsistent giving breeds inconsistent favor.
What are you breeding?
When God provides for us to be a blessing to someone we are to do it no matter how many times a day He may ask us to divvy up our goods. In return He promises that our giving will not go unnoticed and will be rewarded.
Continual Focus on Proverbs
The hardest part of being consistent is remaining focused. That’s why it’s a good idea to have something that is stronger (that being God's Word) than we are when we lose our focus along our journey.
If we are to believe God’s promises, we have to know what they are. This week we’re going to focus on becoming patterned in reading the scriptures. Proverbs is a good place to start for gaining wisdom for continual Christian living.
Before reading offer up to God a song of praise. The challenge is to read one proverb a day. That is we’re going to read the proverb that coincides with the day of the month. Today is March 6th, so we will begin by reading Proverbs 6.
Tomorrow read Proverbs 7 and so forth. When you get to the end of the month, start over. In shorter months, read the last chapters of Proverbs and begin fresh on the beginning of the next month. This is something that you will continue to do even after the challenge, because you believe what you are reading to be true.
I have done this for years and guarantee that if you do this you will read more of the Bible than just this one chapter a day.
By reading God’s Word daily, we will restructure how we believe, think and go about our day.
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My Word, you are my disciple indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-31 NKJV)
Until next time, continually focus on God’s promised favor.
