Topic: RAISED TO BLESS….part 2.
Text : Zechariah 8:12,13

12: For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.
13: And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be strong.

I started laying foundation of this teaching in part 1, let me press further here on the reason God raise or bless people. Those days in school a brilliant guy is chosen as a captain over his mates, and one of the major reasons for that is that he has ability to bear responsibilities for others, and at the same time pass his exams. Heaven does the same in organising the affairs of men.
I tell my church members often times that God is not sleeping or folding his hands in heaven. Some people think God is just passive, looking, just having fun as people go about their lives, that’s not true, he works, how do I know? John 5:17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
Look at that verse in amplified version; But Jesus answered them, My Father has worked [even] until now, [He has never ceased working; He is still working] and I, too, must be at [divine] work.
Now that we know that God works, what are his works? One of them is to determine who to bless , how to bless him or her. He reasons in this manner: if I bless Mr. John will help Mr. Peter? If I raise this man, will he be a blessing to others or amass wealth to himself? This is like you wanting to serve 1000 people, but rather you chose 10 people among them and committed things to their hands to give others.
You must understand that God rules the affairs of men on daily basis, some people are desperately in need of help, finance, counsels, teachings, some need spiritual help. God will only commit resources (both spiritual and financial) to help these people in the hands of the few individuals who will raise them.
Let me say this with all sense of humility, the knowledge that is being impacted through PREVAILING VOICE DAILY couldn’t have been revealed by flesh and blood but by the Holy Spirit. God knows we will not keep this knowledge to ourselves, this is overs 3 years of doing this daily, blessing lives, raising vibrant Christians, empowering people through knowledge, those we know and many we don’t know through this platform.
Can God trust you with resources, spiritual or financial? What are you doing with what you have? Are you raising people or pulling them down? Are you trying to be the richest man or woman while people are dieing daily because of malnutrition, lack of health care, lack of education?
Can I shock you? God gives wealth to unbelievers who will bless others and bypass believers who are greedy, look around you will confirm what I am saying. Sometimes you will see a rich man and you say, this man truly deserve to be rich.
You must understand that you’re blessed not because you’re wiser or better than others, but simply because God is committing some people’s destinies into your hands.
Just look at this; Luke 12:48 ..For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required…If you must get more from God, you must be ready to be a blessing to others. God bless you.
* Make a covenant with God, tell him; as you bless me, I will bless others.
Psalms 112, Mark 6.
