TOPIC: You Are God’s Channel To Help Your World.

TEXT: Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand (Philippians 2:4) MSG.

If you observe carefully in families, those that shoulder family responsibilities prosper more. They give not because they really have the means; they understand what it’s all about and that is why their ‘coasts’ keep expanding.

We are unconsciously engrossed with the ‘Me, myself & I’ syndrome. Everyone wants to accumulate wealth for his/ herself, forgetting to share with others, especially the needy. 

The wealth you accumulate is not just for you; God put it in your hands to reach others around you. Thinking or saying, “Everybody should go and look for his/her own”  is a wrong saying and doesn’t tell well of you as a child of God.  You should consider others to be a part of what you have.

As children of the kingdom, we are to obey God’s Word and see Him uplift us. As the seed of Abraham, you’ve been blessed in all things. 1 Corinthians 3:21 says, “…… all things are yours.” So, you see, this wasn’t just for Abraham; you’ve become a part of the blessings God gave to Abraham.

Therefore, always have the abundance and prosperity mentality; God has chosen to bless the world through you. God cannot work through you if you keep thinking lack and poverty.

See every avenue to assist someone financially as an opportunity for your upliftment. Sometimes, when God wants to lift you, he brings someone around for you to assist. Stop grumbling when people come to you for financial assistance.

Do not think helping someone (in genuine need) will finish your money. No, it would rather increase you; the Word says in Proverbs 11:24, There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.

…..for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth,… Deuteronomy 8:18 (KJV). If God gives you the power to make the wealth you possess, then who are you to say No, when His Word says you should forget about yourself long enough just to lend a helping hand to others? Simple obedience will save you years of struggles and take you to your promised land.

Refuse to think that you have no advantage in life, and so cannot assist others.  May be because you came out of a humble background; you are now in Christ and the seed of Abraham.  Think greatness, think success, think abundance; you’re God’s channel of blessing to your world. Move around with that consciousness.

When you see the needy surrounding you, talk to God to use you as a channel to bless them rather than complain about them.  “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).

The moment you make up your mind to be a blessing to others by giving out your resources, you’ll begin to experience an unusual enlargement of your ‘coast.’   

God loves to bless people and He does it through man, in most cases. Make yourself available for God to use as a point of contact to your world and He’ll work through you.

There is no way God will use you to reach out to the needs of others and allow you to remain in lack and want. No way! The truth is, the more He uses you, the richer/wealthier you become.

 He’s given you the potentials, abilities, and wisdom to do extraordinary things and become a blessing to your world. Heed to this call and you’ll see a mind blowing turn around in your life. The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. Proverbs 11:25 (KJV).

 I see you becoming extraordinarily great by simple obedience!
