You Are Next!
10For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.
Suppose you have just heard of someone whose financial debts have been
miraculously cleared. Or your elated friend has just told you that despite
being an average student in school, he scored straight As in all his subjects.
Perhaps on Sunday, you heard a newlywed couple share about how they won an
all-expense-paid trip for two to Hawaii, or how a once-childless couple is now
expecting their miracle child.
When you see or hear of others being blessed, do you ever wonder when it will
be your turn? Or do you even find yourself saying, “Oh, he got blessed with the
very thing that I have been praying for. There goes my blessing.”
Now, just because man’s economy operates on the principle of shortage, it does
not mean that God operates in the same manner. So the next time somebody gets
blessed, tell yourself, “I won’t be disheartened. I won’t be jealous. I am the next
one to be blessed!”
Always remember that God does not have to bless anyone at your expense.
Nor does He have to bless you at anyone’s expense. We don’t have to be jealous
of each other. There is a portion that God gives to you which no man can touch
because it has your name on it — “A man can receive nothing unless it has been
given to him from heaven”. (John 3:27)
Our God is a rich God. He owns the whole universe. He has contacts and
blessings you do not know of and which are reserved just for you! There is more
than enough for everybody with plenty of leftovers. In fact, you will not be able
to take it all because when the blessings start coming in, they will come in a netbreaking,
boat-sinking style. You will have to call for your friends in the other
boats to come and help you! (Luke 5:1–7) That is the kind of blessings that our
God gives. So get ready for your blessings and overflowing abundance!
