A Downpour of Joy

            Have you had your Joy Juice today? God wants to drench you from head to toe with His abundant love and JOY!

            From an early age, we’re taught about “keeping score”.  In sporting events, we know  who wins the game by keeping score. In business, legders have to be kept so that the company can be run efficiently and effectively.  And in many relationships, people keep score of all the negatives.

            Because of our experience with “keeping score”, we sometimes have a skewed mindset of how God keeps track of whose turn it is to receive a blessing. THANK GOODNESS, GOD DOES NOT WORK THE SAME WAY WE DO!  He doesn’t have a bookkeeper angel who says: “WAIT, God, you’ve already blessed him three times this week.”  Or “Pardon me, God, but don’t you think you’re over-blessing her?”

            God doesn’t set a quota for His goodness and blessing. We must never hesitate to go to our loving Father and present our requests to Him. I’m not talking about selfish requests….but prayers which indicate that we desire HIS BEST for us. If our heart is in tune with His heart, then we will ask for blessings according to His will.

            Listen to this verse from Malachi 3:10: “And try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.”

            Pull out your umbrella and get ready to dance your joy jig in the puddles of blessings that He will rain down on you!

            Start looking for that downpour of joyous blessings!
