The Outpouring

Have you ever noticed the speed with which fountains dispel water? Would you believe if God told you that His blessings upon you will flow in the same manner?

Proverbs 3:10
[10] So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

Honoring God with all you have attracts a lot of blessings. It could be your material properties, your time, your intellect or your heart.

Giving freely is an innate nature of the creator, and it delights Him to see His children do the same. Remember, it is better to give than to receive.

Philippians 4:19
[19]  You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus.

A compulsory question you must ask yourself next is, ‘Am I ready for the outpouring?’. You’ll agree with me that the container is of equal importance as the content. There’s no use of the content without a container.

Some days ago, I had to pour vegetable oil into a bottle and I wasn’t so sure the bottle could house all the oil available. I started pouring but then, eventually, extra oil was left. Well, I simply picked the next empty bottle that could contain the remaining oil.

Mark 2:22
[22] And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.

A major way to get yourself ready for the outpouring of God’s blessing is to develop capacity. Build those muscles in the spirit, and sharpen your sensitivity to detect whatever step He wants you to take. The ability to be able to accurately follow His leading opens you up to greater dimensions of spiritual blessing.

It’s that season of outpouring! How ready are you?
