HTBB Principle #1 “Blessings for a Lifetime”

♕ Today's Promise: “Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” Psalm 23:6

 Principle #1

God WANTS to Bless You!

As I began reading and answering so many letters over the past few weeks, the intense feeling of my heart was to see more women find the Lord as her Heavenly Husband.

Women come to us for one purpose, to restore their marriages. And though our materials are based on restoring marriages, what each and EVERY woman can come away with (even if she gives up on her restoration) is finding the Love of her life!

Whenever I read any of our MEQs “Marriage Evaluation Questionnaires”, I always feel this incredible urge to try to do whatever I can to encourage her. When I read the details, and the tone of brokenness in their heartbroken confessions, I am often moved to tears and want so much to see their marriages restored, but even more, I want them to find the Prince of Peace and their Man of Valor—the Lord of Hosts.

Isaiah 54:5—

“For your Husband is your Maker, Whose name is the Lord of hosts

And then it hit me— this is EXACTLY how God feels about wanting women to experience our precious Lord! He wants to bless us, He wants to bless you! So much so that He tells us in His Word how we can obtain His blessings!

Isaiah 30:18—

“Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; how blessed are all those who long for Him.”

The Lord is waiting and longing to bless each and everyone who longs for Him. It is His very nature to WANT to bless us!

When He sees our humility, He wants to EXALT us!

When He sees us giving, He wants to GIVE to us!

When He sees our tears, He wants to COMFORT us!

When He sees us struggling, He wants to HELP us!

Sadly I believe that far too often we listen to the world (who doubts God and certainly has no clue that the Lord is gracious) so we sometimes “feel” that He is aloof to our needs or desires. We also listen to the enemy who makes us “question” if God even cares about us at all.

Even Christians who love the Lord still question God’s willingness or desire to give them the desires of their heart, when His Word clearly says otherwise.

Psalm 37:4—

“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”

So the truth is—God wants to bless each and every one of us, not just this year but for a lifetime! He also promises to meet EVERY one of your needs and even many or most of your desires too. He wants to bless EACH and every single one of you with a restored marriage—you must NEVER doubt it—but it means being restored to Him first.

Okay, so I could go on, but instead, I’d like each of us to stop to “Selah.” Stop now and think about what I’ve just said and what He said in His own words. And during this upcoming week, I want to encourage you to think about this and meditate on this one principle.

The Lord is waiting and longing to bless each and everyone who longs for Him. It is His very nature to WANT to bless us!

Next week we will look at why there are far too many believers who are not blessed while there are other believers who seem to be so blessed they cannot contain it. Now it’s time to…
