Blessed To Be A Blessing

 

I will send you blessings
upon blessings

you will be full
of Me

and never lack
a gift to give

from now through
eternity.

**********

You establish me as a blessing.

“The LORD had said to Abram, ‘Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you . . .and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.”
“So Abram departed as the LORD had instructed and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran. He took his wife, Sarai, his nephew Lot, and his wealth – his livestock and all the people he had taken into his household at Haran – and headed for the land of Canaan. When they arrived in Canaan, Abram traveled through the land as far as Shechem. There he set up camp beside the oak of Moreh. At that time the area was inhabited by Canaanites. ”
“Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, ‘I will give thIs land to your descendants.’ And Abram built an altar there and dedicated it to the LORD, who had appeared to him.”
Genesis 12:1-7

Driving Away Vultures

source – wikipedia

“And when the vultures came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.”  Genesis 15:11  NKJV

Abram was not giving up on God showing up.

Thank You, Lord, for keeping Your promises to us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

As we lay down before You
the vultures swoop in

picking at our beliefs
dragging out our sin

mocking us for waiting
saying You’ll never show up

but we know You always keep
Your promises to us.

God bless you as you wait before Him today!

In Pursuit

“Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained servants  who were born in his own house and went in pursuit as far as Dan.”  Genesis 14:14  NKJV

Abrams used what he had to face the challenge in front of him.

Thank You, Lord, for equipping us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Today
you may face

something
new

but do
not fear

for I’ve
equipped you.

God bless you as you use what God has given you to face today!

“And there he built an alter to the Lord, who had appeared to him.”  Genesis 12:7  NKJV
“. . . there he built an alter to the Lord and called on the name of the LORD.”  Genesis 12:8  NKJV
“So Abram journeyed . . .”  Genesis 12:9  NKJV

Abram’s journey was pretty epic.

Thank You, Lord, for each of our own epic journeys that You’ve mapped out for us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

You may call us out and away
or ask us to simply stay

our journeys may be physical
of about what we pray

yet You will appear to us
and encourage us day to day

as we call upon Your Holy
and wonderfully great Name.

God bless you as you journey today.
