Take Action 


II Kings 3:16-17
God blesses His people everyday. Sometimes we don’t even recognize the blessings of The Lord. Other times we are well aware of the blessing because we are looking for it. We are ready to see it happen.
The army of Israel was preparing for battle. There wasn’t any water in the foreign land. They asked Elisha, a prophet, to ask God for water. Elisha told them to dig ditches and that The Lord would fill the ditches with water from the ground up. The Israelites dug the ditches and the water began to flow.
Daily we come before God asking for a blessing. Probably most of the time we just expect it to fall in our laps and that be that. Often times The Lord blesses in that way. But occasionally he requires us to put forth effort to receive a blessing.
The Israelites showed God their obedience to Him by doing as he commanded. They dug the ditches. This was also a representation of their faith in God. God took it from there. He blessed in ways that they would’ve never imagined when they first inquired of The Lord.
Continue to seek The Lord and His blessings. As you do be prepared to show God that you’re willing to take action so that you can become a recipient of the miracle he has in store you.

Ants

I Timothy 6:19

The ant is spoken of as being a wise creature. It hoards up its food during the summer so that it can survive during the winter.

We can learn from the ant:

Gathering Food in Summertime

Stockpile your blessings. Write them in a journal. Record them. Do whatever it is that will help you to remember what The Lord has done for you.

Because He has blessed you in so many ways. You know that His loving hand is upon you. You’ve without a doubt experienced His presence.

Winter Will Come

But there will be difficult times. Times that will make us wonder if God even cares about us.

When those times come think on how He has previously blessed you….how He has never let you down…

Get out your journal: read about it. Play back your recording: listen to it.

God still loves you. Sometimes we just need a little reminder.

The ant kept going…staying focused on it’s future. Keep your heavenly home in mind. Eternal life with Jesus is worth preparing for.
