Episode 514

TODAY’S READING
The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.
Deuteronomy 28:12

It is a beautiful verse for all of us to hold on to because we are truly blessed to be a blessing to others. And God first gives us so that we can also give back and what it says here says that we will lend to many nations, but we’ll borrow from none. I hope that we are generous people. I hope that we are a kind of community that when God pours out a blessing over us, we are not shy to pour a blessing out to others. I hope that the Lord constantly reminds us that we are to give back to our communities. We are to give back to those that we come into contact with.

We usually give back at any point that we possibly can. Now beyond that, the Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of His bounty, to send rain on your land in season, and so that is also a testimony and an affirmation that we can hold on to that the Lord will send rain in our season, meaning our fruit will blossom no matter if the rest of the world is going through a drought. We are facing troubles in our economy. Gas is at an all-time high, food is at an all-time high, so we’re looking around, and we see this drought, we see how people are complaining people are suffering will need extra income, and it can become overwhelming, and it can become scary at times. And so we have the choice to either let fear take hold of us and this season, or we can look at this verse and say thank you, Lord, for opening the heavens.

Thank you for the storehouse of your bounty thank you for sending rain in this season. Meaning our soil will get Tim to our seed will blossom, and our trees will produce fruit. So today, as we go about our day, let us hold on to the fact that we do not answer to the economy; we answer to the Lord.

Prayer
Father God, thank you for a beautiful Thursday. Thank you for the opportunity of blessing us so that we may be a blessing to others. Or we thank you for the rain this season. We thank you that you tend to our soil, you tend to our seeds, and no matter if the rest of the world is going through a drought, we lower will produce fruit because God, we answer to you; we don’t answer to the economy. So we thank you for that. And Lord, with that blessing, we asked like you bring us to others that you want us to bless. Let us continue your work. We love you so much. And we ask that you bless this beautiful Thursday. We thank you for the opportunity of all of us to gather together to worship your holy name. This is all for your glory Lord and the action that you take in our lives on a daily basis. We love you, and we thank you; it is in your holy name that we pray. Amen.

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
