Today, I went to make my son a cup of tea and although I’d remembered to put sugar in the cup, he still complained that the tea had no sugar. Before putting more sugar in, I scraped the bottom of the cup with a teaspoon and found the sugar there, waiting to be stirred!
On my way to work, the tea incident reminded me of yesterday’s teaching by Bro. Johnson on Ephesians 1:3 which says, Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ
But the question is, how do we connect to the ‘source’ so that the blessings can flow into your life? This being rather difficult to understand because of a lack of imagery, Bro. J came up with the following analogy:
Imagine that you’re having a bath and suddenly the water stops flowing. Later you go to the roof (Hopefully, the water did not stop when you had soap on your body J) and see that the tank was full and the only reason could be that something had happened to the pipe. So, only once the pipe is repaired, YOU (not anyone else) will OPEN the tap and let the water shower your body.
Much in the same way, our ‘spiritual tanks’ have been loaded with blessings from the Lord, but the only way to ensure that the blessings flow into our lives is to keep ‘maintaining’ the pipe (=THE WORD OF GOD) that connects you to the source. But even then you still have to activate the flow by turning the knob/lever (=CONFESSING THE WORD/BY BEING A DOER OF THE WORD) to let the ‘springs of living waters’ flow that Jesus promised us!
So friends, don’t forget to ‘stir’ your spirits up to allow the blessings to bring sweetness to your lives. REMAIN BLEST ALWAYS!
