Daily Read - 1 Chronicles 26:12-27:34; Romans 4:13-5:5; Psalm 14:1-7; Proverbs 19:17
He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord,
And He will pay back what he has given.
New King James Version
You may mock the plans of the poor, but their refuge is Adonai.
Complete Jewish Bible
It grieves Me to look into the hearts of My people and see ungodly attitudes toward the poor in this world. Judgment and prejudice hide in secret places deep within many who call Me Lord. This cannot continue in the church if you desire My manifested presence to come. Things must radically change preparing the way for My glory.
Those who give their lives to help the poor and needy hold a special place in My heart. Each time My people reach out and touch these precious ones, a deposit is made in heaven and is written on the inner chambers of My heart. I see each act of kindness extended to the needy and I repay each with abundance and overflow.
Likewise, I hear the disrespect and mockery that some project towards those in need and this brings Me great disappointment!
My Kingdom come brings hope and healing, not judgment and pain. The church is to demonstrate the magnificence of My goodness bringing light to all people, especially those who live in desperation.
One of the greatest treasures given to the poor is the revelation of My blessing. I desire all to enter into and receive My abundant life. Allow My Spirit to flow through you in such a way that it brings freedom to those who believe they are to accept poverty as a lifestyle. Declare My blessing over the poor, watch the chains of slavery break off and fall into the abyss of hell. This is a remarkable sight indeed!
Great rewards follow obedience and the treasuries of heaven are filled with bountiful blessings ready to be poured over those who have made deposits in the lives of the hurting.
I love the poor and I provide a place of refuge for each of them. I hear their cries and feel their pain. Who will reach out and touch these precious ones for Me?
Someone is waiting on the other side of your obedience.
Lord Jesus, forgive me if I have ever despised Your precious ones. I want to be a vessel of honor who brings Your hope to all people regardless of who they are. A spirit of poverty affects all areas of a person's life, spirit, soul, and body. I want to lead those enslaved by this spirit into the freedom of Your abundant life. Lord, I dedicate myself to minister and touch the hearts of the hurting with the revelation of Your goodness. I say, "Yes, Lord, here I am, use me!" Amen!
Give and it shall be given to you!
