Rebuke the devourers for my sake: anyone kind to the poor lends to the Lord and He will reward them
for their kindness, we all want the blessings of God but not all of us are working to get the blessings of the Lord.
Many believe that once they have given their tithe and offering they have given,
which is normal but it doesn’t end there, God loves a heart that gives and he bless them a lot,
when i say blessing i don’t mean the figure in your account, God blesses them differently.
Someone that is passing through a problem and the person runs to you for assistance if you give him
little of what you have, God is pleased with that kind of heart and blesses it, the kind of blessings that flow
to the children’s children. Someone that’s ill but doesn’t have that ability to treat him/herself and
you know that you can be of help and you help that person, things like these moves God to open doors of blessings,
it doesn’t need to be a person you know before you help. If you contribute to the work of the Lord
it may be little but it counts, all these please God to open doors of abundant blessings when you have
enough material things like clothes, shoe e.t.c and you know that someone else doesn’t have if you help
that person God will be moved by that. If you help orphans with the little you can and help them
to have a better future God will be pleased, you can put a smile on the faces of widows,
rebuke devourers for my sake, the Lord will rebuke devourers for your sake, givers never lack
when you do it wholeheartedly God is always pleased by that, when you sow seed in someone life
don’t expect the person to pay you back but surely that blessings will come back in multiple folds,
don’t say you have no reason to help a person with complete hands and legs,
helping others leads to blessings in different ways.
Let look at the story of Elisha and the Rich Woman from Shunem: Elisha often goes
to Shunem and there’s a wealthy woman that always invite him for a meal when he’s there,
the woman called her husband and told him that “i am sure that this man who comes here
so often is holy, let’s build a small room on the roof, and flourish it so he can stay there whenever
he visits us which they did. One day Elisha went to Shunem with Gehazi and she gave them the room,
Elisha asks her if there’s anything they can do for her, she said that there nothing but she doesn’t
have a child, Elisha told her that by this time next year you will have a son, she had her doubt but it came to pass.
After some years in harvest time her son went to meet his dad on the farm but all of a sudden
the boy screamed that his head hurts, his father told one of the servants to take him to his mum,
the boy slept on his mother’s lap and in the evening he died. The woman went to Elisha and told him
and explained everything to him, he told Gehazi to take his stick and put it over the child but he didn’t wake up,
Gehazi told Elisha and he went there he saw the boy lying dead on the bed and he locked himself and
he prayed to God then he lay down on the boy, placing his mouth, eyes, and hands on the boy’s mouth,
eyes, and hands, as he stretched out over the boy his body started to get warm and he walked over the room
and stretched over the boy again, the boy sneezed seven times and then opened his eyes.
Elisha called the woman and he showed her, her son and
she fell at Elisha’s feet and she took her son
and went in 2 Kings 4:8-37(KJV). Look at the little help that woman did to Elisha but she reaped out of it,
yes the child died but she has sowed a seed in the Prophet life,
and because of that God revived the child, God bless the heart that gives and share and God will
showers his blessings and he will also rebuke devourers for their sake, rebuke devourers for my sake.
Let me share with you a real-life story
There’s an old woman with her children she loves to help others one day a lady was on a journey and
the address is where the old woman is, the lady was holding a five-year-old child and they are asking
for directions but someone brought her to the old woman, the old woman asked who is she looking for,
she replied and said she’s looking for her brother but since morning she couldn’t find the location,
the woman hospitalized her and told her that her brother name sounds familiar but for now she
should rest because she has been trekking all day and she looks tired. She slept at the old woman’s house
Overnight, when the day breaks the old woman’s children helped her to find her brother
in the neighbourhood where they found him, when they found him he appreciated the woman and
thanked her a lot. After some time one of the old woman children went for a source in another state
but she doesn’t know anyone there, where she lodges she ran out of cash to pay so they threw her
out and when they threw her out she saw a sister and asked her for help she explained her situation to her,
the lady took her to her family house and accommodated her out of humanity and she felt
like she was living with her own family, they accommodated her till she finished her source,
she felt so relaxed and comfortable living with them. What her mother did then became a blessing to her,
it’s a blessing to help and give to others, it always comes back in multiple folds but it isn’t good to help
when it isn’t from the heart and most importantly as Jesus said But when thou doest alms,
let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth. When you give you should see it
that you give to the Lord, someone that sowed his seed and almost empty what he has,
that person should expect that when the blessing is coming, it will come abundantly and
God will open heaven to that kind of person so that kind of seed sowing it’s important to do it
wholeheartedly and surely God will rebuke devourers for your sake. If you do something because of God,
God will always reward you because he sees your heart that you did it because of him and he will surely
rebuke devourers for your sake. Some will say that they won’t help anyone again because a person
betrayed their trust the Bible says in Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good (KJV).
Jesus said in Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down,
and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.
For with the same measure that ye mete withal, it shall be measured to you again (KJV).
And he also said in Matthew 6:3-4 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know
what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself
shall reward thee openly (KJV). And he said in Matthew 10:42 And whosoever shall give to drink
unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you,
he shall in no wise lose his reward (KJV). The Bible said in Hebrews 13:16 But to do good and
to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased (KJV).
Oh Lord rebuke devourers for my sake.
I pray into your life these prayers.
1. The Lord shall manifest his power in your life and transform your finances, in the Jesus mighty name.
2. The gate of your financial blessings and joy shall be opened in Jesus name.
3. Anything standing against your financial breakthrough shall be destroyed in Jesus mighty name.
4. Heaven over your finances shall be opened in Jesus mighty name.
5. God will continue to shower his blessings upon you in Jesus mighty name Amen.
