I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living (Ps 27:13)~ There is nothing like the believing hope of eternal life, the foresights of that glory, and foretastes of those pleasures, to keep us from fainting under all calamities. Life can be awesome one minute and a downpour of trials the next, but seeing God work, even in someone else’s life somehow strengthens me to bear up under my own burdens. Knowing that God is always at work for us keeps me inspired to pray in faith, knowing that ultimately He will deliver me in trials and keep me from destruction.
Sometimes YOUR blessing comes from seeing Him bless SOMEONE ELSE! Let us encourage each other to wait on the Lord, with patient expectation, and fervent (passionate) prayer. Since we know that much comes from the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous in God, we should be that much more inspired! Plus, It may bring the deliverance of your own favor! Try praying for someone else today and even better, try praising The Lord for blessing someone else’s life; and watch what these selfless acts bring you! The key here though is not that YOU get something out of it, but that to GOD goes the glory! When you are truly asking the best for someone and truly thankful and praising because of what God does for them, the blessing of warmth in your own spirit will take place. Believe me, you will find that blessing to be much more than you might ask or think! Take true joy in seeing someone else blessed and in turn may YOU be blessed!
