A Backwards Blessing (Part III)


When you’ve run out of money, family, friends, etc – nothing is holding you up, what do you do? What do you do when you have run out? Answer: Wait on an instruction, and then do it to the best of your ability and/or for as long as it takes (cf. Ps. 27:20). For example the servants were instructed to fill the water pots and they did so all the way to the brim; the job was not half done. The water pots were full to the brim, which means there was no more room. You see, when you are filled with the spirit, there is no room for fear, doubt or unbelief, wavering, wondering, fretting, skepticism, false judgments or any form/type of evil - spot, wrinkle or any such thing (Eph. 5:18; 27; Rms. 4:20-21; Heb 11:11). This is where many of us go wrong: we don’t fill up (complete the task), we frustrated and quit, we become discouraged, disenchanted and disillusioned. We give up before we finish what God has put in our hearts (Gal. 6:9; Ps. 73:26; Philip.1:6). And God in his great mercies will continue to provide for us his blessings, but he cannot pour out his abundance on us until we follow the instructions (do what he placed in our hearts because that’s where our strength lies to possess his promises.)

Here are a few other instances: the Israelites were instructed to march around an insurmountable wall for 7 days and on day 7, 7xs (Josh. 6:12-16). The prophet Elijah @ the brook of Cherith which eventually dried up; he was subsequently instructed to go to the widow of Zaraptheth in Zidon (1 Kin 17:7-16). You see, once God gives the instruction, know that He has already answered your prayer (Is. 65:24; Job 22:27, Ps. 20:1); and the blessing is wrapped up in it to be revealed at the opportune time (Eccles. 3:11). **continued**
