BLESSED BY IMPARTING OTHERS
By DIGC 20 August 2021
Your blessing in Kingdom service is amplified by your willingness to carry others along.
SCRIPTURE: Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him. Genesis 18:18-19.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your blessing in Kingdom service is amplified by your willingness to carry others along.
Scripture confirms that God created us for Himself (Isaiah 43:21). God created us to be dedicated to Him in service. When we serve the Lord, He will bless our bread and our water and take sickness away from us (Exodus 23:25).
However, there are temptations that hinder effective service. One of such temptations is the temptation not to go far with God. Another temptation is the temptation not to take others along with you in serving God.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that your blessing in Kingdom service is amplified by your willingness to carry others along. Abraham was blessed because he commanded his family members, employees and workers to follow the Way of the Lord. This means, the promises of God to you are realisable at the frequency of your impact on others. The promises of God to your life are realisable to the extent to which you are willing to impact the lives of others.
From this Scripture, we understand that God would bring to pass His promises concerning Abraham because he (Abraham) would command his children and his household to follow God in righteousness. God seemed to have said concerning Abraham, “Abraham knows what he is doing. He is changing the lives of his family members and touching the lives of his employees, so I can fulfil my promise in his life.”
This means, if you want what God said to you to come to pass, touch the lives of people who don’t know God and point them in the direction of God.
Remember this: Your blessing in Kingdom service is amplified by your willingness to carry others along.
- Make up your mind to impact the people around you.
- Make impact on others your primary reason for living.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I ask for the grace to impact my world positively, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

REFLECTION: There is no living without giving. Giving out carbon dioxide for plant use continually is a major part of living. Living without giving (Impact) is dying without knowing.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The Lord cause your life to be relevant in the land of the living in Jesus’ Name.
