Sevenfold blessings in considering the poor...

Ps 41: 1-3

The Word declares that there are blessings for those who consider and give to the poor.
"Bless" means empower to prosper.
God gives you His ability to get results!

Here are the blessings that God will bestow upon us when we help the needy:
  1. The Lord will deliver us in time of trouble.
  2. The Lord will preserve us. He will put a hedge of protection around us and He will keep us safe.
  3. He will keep us alive. We will have long life.
  4. We will be blessed on the earth! Another version says happy. 
  5. We will not live life to the expectations of our enemies. God will not abandon us to the power of our enemies (GNB)
  6. God will be our strength even in times of adversity.
  7. God restore and transforms us!
Sevenfold blessings are promised to those who are interested in helping the poor and needy.
Find someone in need today and sow a seed of love and a gift of finance, food or clothes...then pray the verses above. God watches over His Word to perform (Jer.1:12)
"What you make happen for others, God makes happen for you!"
