Extra Toppings!

Sometime last year at work, I was assigned a task that required me to carry out research. This drove me to the point of making inquiries; checked out websites and made few phone calls. After my findings, it was clear that to visit a Resort and to book a lodge comes with some free benefits attached. These benefits include free access into different areas of the Resort and other things.

There are moments that after the mind travels, situations test and tempt you. Life then gets you to a point where you wonder why it’s not enough to be saved and just stop there. Are there benefits to allowing God to lead?

Psalm 68:19
[19] Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

The benefits of following God are numerous and way more than the eyes can see. The Psalmist must have had first-hand experiences and partaken of these benefits for him to have written about them. He reveals to us that the Father ‘daily’ loads us with benefits as extra toppings on salvation. Don’t you just love the sound of that?

Psalm 103:2
[2] Bless the Lord , O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Recently I ran out of money and was wondering how I was supposed to fare myself to work and feed. I worried so much that I ran out of options and I eventually asked the Holy Spirit to take the lead. From that moment till I had things sorted, I enjoyed supernatural provision. Have you counted your blessings since the year began?

David listed out some benefits we enjoy with God on the lead in our lives. You should take advantage of these benefits.

Psalm 103:3-5, 9-10
[3] He forgives your sins–every one. He heals your diseases–every one.
[4] He redeems you from hell–saves your life! He crowns you with love and mercy–a paradise crown.
[5] He wraps you in goodness–beauty eternal. He renews your youth–you’re always young in his presence.
[9] He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold, nor hold grudges forever.
[10] He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve, nor pay us back in full for our wrongs.

The Patriarchs and Matriarchs of old understood the mystery of letting God lead, they keyed into it and the blessings till now are evident in their lives.

All of these and more are the benefits of being a part of the family and putting God in the driver’s seat in your life. Put God in His deserved place and no stone will be left unturned.
