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 know the hearts of My people who hold unrighteous views toward the poor in this world. Judgment and prejudice hide in secret places deep within many who call Me Lord. This cannot continue 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 you reach out and touch these precious ones, a deposit is made in heaven and 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. Great rewards are stored in the treasuries of heaven for those who have poured into the lives of the hurting. Likewise, I hear the disrespect and mockery that some project towards those in need and this brings great disappointment!
My Kingdom 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 abundant life. Allow Holy Spirit to flow through you in such a way that it brings freedom to those stuck in belief systems of poverty and lack. Declare blessing over the poor and watch the chains of slavery break off from their lives. This is a remarkable sight to witness.
I love the poor and hear their cries of 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 when I have despised or judged Your precious ones. I want to be a vessel of honor who brings Your hope to all people regardless of their situation. A spirit of poverty affects all areas of a person's life - spirit, soul, and body. I want to lead those held captive 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!
