Spiritual Foundations

Don't Block Your Blessing

“…Whatever He says to you, do it.”
(John 2:5, NKJV)

If I offer you a gift, holding out to you with arms extended, but you keep your hands in your pockets… To whom does the gift still belong?

I can't force you to take it.

Yet, sometimes this is how we behave in life. There are gifts that are right in front of us, we have our hands firmly stuffed in our pockets, oblivious to what life is offering us.

there are times when we are so focused on the only thing we can think about (such as needing more money) that we fail to see what God is offering to us in the here and now. Usually, it will lead us directly to what we need provision for.

You might say, “I get that, but I do need money and I don't have my hands in my pockets. But God still hasn't supplied me with the money.”

We'll keep in mind that the “hands in pockets” thing is a metaphor. There may be something else that God is asking you to do or suggesting to you that you are ignoring. As because you're so focused on the outcome, you're missing the process.

You might say that you're working hard, but your timing faithfully, and the your “doing everything right”. And maybe you are. And I certainly don't want to get into a discussion about whether or not we earn God's favor (we don't).

But one thing I know we do is sometimes block God's attempts to bless us. Is the equivalent of having your hands in your pockets when someone's trying to give you a gift.

For instance, if you're holding bitterness and anger in your heart toward someone, or unforgiveness, that could block your blessing.

Today, ask the Lord to help you search your own heart for anything that may be blocking or refusing his power. This is about trying to find something wrong with you, by the way. It's not about trying to “search out sin”. Most of us don't need to search sin out – we know exactly where to find it.

This can be more subtle.

If you're spending all your energy and emotional reserves on harboring unforgiveness toward someone, or you're operating from a victim mindset because you're so “wounded”, you're cutting off access to your own best self. You're limiting the resources you have access to, and you're doing it by choice.

So you might try praying something like this today:

“Daddy, every part of my life belongs to you. I know you have my best interest at heart. Show me anything I need to do, anything I need to change, so that I'm open to receiving everything you want to give me. In Jesus name, Amen.”
