I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. —Psalm 37:25
The Lord takes pleasure in the success of His servants. Yet God’s abundance is not granted so you can simply lavish it on yourself. It is given to establish the kingdom of God throughout the earth (Deuteronomy 8:18).
We are created to be vessels through which He can pour out His abundance and blessing. God looses abundance in our lives so that we, in turn, can deliver it into the earth to help bring about His kingdom.
Vessels God uses are vessels not contaminated by the ways of the world. The abundance of God overflows from vessels of gold that have been purified in the Refiner’s fire.
Set your heart and your mind on becoming “a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work” (2 Timothy 2:21).
Lord, use me. As Your vessel, pour Your Spirit through
me. Sanctify and purify me so that I might become
as vessel of honor. Amen.
