Love: the master key to overflowing blessings (b)


Benefits of being kingdom minded

 

Being kingdom minded engenders divine favour and open rewards. What others are running after will be running after you. Traffics can be redirected for your sake

1 Kings 17:13-16 KJV
“And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. [14] For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth. [15] And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. [16] And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord , which he spake by Elijah.”

Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

If God’s Kingdom does not holds any attraction to you don’t expect God to commit Himself to your welfares.

 

How can I love God?

 

Obey God’s commands

 

God is a commander. He primarily operates on commandments which are nonnegotiable. His commandments are attached together with blessings and benefits. Obedience to God’s injunctions is the capital evidence of love.

John 14:21 KJV
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

Sometimes, God’s injunctions or instructions might look very stupid, it might look too simple. But listen, that is the answer to your problems.

One thing I would also like us to know is that there is no fear in love. Anxiety is the cardinal evidence of doubt. U can’t love your spouse and be afraid of him/her.

1 John 4:18 KJV
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

Love: the master key to overflowing blessings


Love: the master key to overflowing blessings

Love is a combination of the word that we receive, believe and obey.

John 14:21 KJV
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

Every genuine love requires a sacrifice. The alter of sacrifice is the alter of sworn blessings. It requires a sacrificial approach to move God.

Genesis 8:20-22 KJV
“And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord ; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. [21] And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. [22] While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”

Be kingdom minded

Being kingdom minded means allowing the interest of God’s kingdom be at the center of your life. By making the God’s kingdom your priority in life. This is where the supernatural grace flows. Kingdom mindedness is the cardinal mark of love.

Matthew 6:9-10 KJV
“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. [10] Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”

In the lord’s prayer after Thanksgiving, the next item is the kingdom of God before asking for daily bread. That shows your God’s heart beats for His Kingdom.

Most of the things we called prayers are noise. Most of our prayers are self-centered. If you can change the focus of your prayer towards the progress of God’s kingdom, you will see blessings overflowing in all spheres of life naturally.

Engaging on the prayer alter on behalf of the unsaved to be saved – I call it ‘prayergelism’-  is part of being kingdom minded. Embarking on outreaches, evangelism are part of being kingdom minded. You don’t have to struggle to get things done in life. Just  understand the key that unlocks the supernatural.

Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
