Today's Devotion- The Year of Overflow

by Pastor Bong Gonzales

Psalm 65:11-13
You crown the year with your bounty,and your carts overflow with abundance. 12 The grasslands of the desert overflow;the hills are clothed with gladness. 13 The meadows are covered with flocksand the valleys are mantled with grain;they shout for joy and sing. NIV

The word of God is the sure guidance for what we can be certain as we placed our trust in God through Christ our Lord!

Most people in every turn of year are doing everything to somehow welcome the new year with luck or blessing. In this the believer of the Lord are already delivered for he knows whom to trust and where to find the answer! Some as usual are taking a chance through rituals, omens, traditions and all other possible ways to have a good life ahead. Well, we cannot blame them for who does not want a sure blessing and a good future?

Needless to say that God above all person wants His creation to be blessed and abundantly blessed, that's why He sent His begotten Son Jesus, who came to give life and gave it abundantly (John 10:10b).

So my fellow in pursuit of blessedness, may we hear His word for this year 2009 as the "Year of Overflow" of blessing and of God's goodness which can be received by those who will believe in Him and in His word.

What areas in our lives can we believe for the overflow? Well, let me list some:
1. Overflow of blessing for family matters - This will be the year where we will be able to spend more time, quality time for our family. It will be also the year of having a healthy relationship with someone special, specially for those who are praying for it for years in the past.

2. An overflow of opportunity to re-align your job based on your skills and expertise, both in the secular and in the ministry. We can believe God to give us joy not only in the salary we receive but also in the work we do!

3. Overflow of winning souls for the Lord! As the crisis bring depression to the lost, it will be a doorway to bring them faith in Christ, the hope of glory!

So, my friends and fellow bound to overflow, let us be ready to go with big bags for the blessings will be boundless, more than what we can contain, exceeding and excessive than what we could ever imagine!

God bless and always believe for God is delighted to give us His Kingdom's blessing!!!

Till next time!
