Is the seed still in the barn? As yet the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have not yielded fruit. But from this day I will bless you. Haggai 2:19 NKJV
The scriptures should raise questions in our minds. The question on my mind today is does God still speak directly to people?
God speaks to people in many ways. He can speak to us in dreams and visions. He speaks to us in the quietness of our thoughts and desires. God speaks to us through other people and the circumstances of life. The Lord is speaking to us through His written Word today.
I was troubled in my spirit. I told Jesus how I was feeling. He spoke to me. It was not in a way I could hear with my ears. God spoke to me in a way I could hear with my heart.
The Lord said, “Draw near to me.” How do I know it was God speaking to me? The bible tells us to draw near to God and He will draw near to us.
Jesus speaks to us because He loves us. Jesus wants to bless us.
The Lord highlighted this verse of scripture for me several years ago. I was reading my bible and the letters jumped of the page at me. God was speaking to me. Jesus said He would bless me.
When I saw this verse of scripture I wondered if God really did speak to me? Was this verse of scripture really written for us today? By faith I believe it was. Jesus has blessed me beyond my wildest dreams!
God was instructing the children of Israel to build His house. God promised to bless Israel if they obeyed.
The Lord has the same desires and instructions for us today. Jesus wants us to be about His Father’s business. Jesus wants to use us to build His Father’s Kingdom. Jesus wants to use us to bless each other!
Jesus is not promising if you serve Him you will hit the lottery or make millions in business. Jesus is saying if we walk in His ways and serve Him we will bear fruit for His Kingdom. Our blessings will be eternal. They will never lose value or fade into oblivion.
Trust Jesus with your life. Trust Jesus to bless you with the true riches of His Kingdom!
The true riches of God’s Kingdom are to see His will carried out in the lives of His people. The true riches of God’s Kingdom are to see people turn from darkness to light through faith in Jesus Christ!
Your blessings will be revealed in God’s perfect time. Draw near to Jesus and He will draw near to you!
