DESIRE FOR ONE THING
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house and test me now on this,” says the Lord of Host, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and POUR OUT A BLESSING until it OVERFLOWS.
Is it unusual that we are looking for so many things yet the answer of God could be found in only ONE THING?
Is it amazing that we try to do so many things to please God but the basic secret of doing this is to have ONE FAITH?
Hebrew says that “without faith, we cannot please God”.
Remember that God is not counting how many we are in our community, or how many we are in our ministry because we may be many yet He wants that we are ONE.
We may have different languages, dialects, cultures, and traditions, and we may be having different attitudes and behavior, but let us all set aside all of this as God is looking only for one language, one praise, one attitude and that is being ONE IN HEART, One in Voice.
Though we are many, let us make ourselves ONE in spirit to Worship ONE GOD.
ONLY ONE THING IS NEEDED
We are so busy and troubled by all the worries and trivial things of this world but Jesus said to Martha in Luke 10:41 “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered in so many things; but ONLY ONE THING IS NECESSARY, for Mary has chosen the better part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
John 6:27 “Do not work for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set the seal.”
When we received His Words, we received Jesus. We received God.
Because Jesus is the testimony that God is true. Jesus’ testimony set the seal that God is true. (John 3:33)
That ONE CHOICE to believe in the Son of God give us ONE GREAT REWARD, it’s the ETERNAL LIFE.
THE POWER OF ONE CHOICE
We are what we are because of the choices we made in the past.
We become what we want to be by the CHOICES we make today.
If we are in that failure today because we had those poor choices in the past.
If we are miserable today because we choose to be.
If you want to be successful in your life, what is the choice you do today to achieve that goal?
If we desire to possess ETERNAL LIFE, is our choices and action leading us to receive God’s wonderful promise?
In this world, we are laid and offered so many CHOICES but in the end in we have to decide between two choices.
To be holy or to be folly.
To eternal life or eternal death.
THE POWER OF ONE DECISION
When a man found a field with treasure, he chooses to sell his properties to buy that piece of land.
In the parable of a man who found a pearl, he decided to sell everything to possess the pearl.
In life, to possess the true treasures we have to decide.
Are you willing to deny yourself, sell everything you have and sacrifice to possess that ONE THING?
It is not easy because selling everything is denying yourself. You have to put your life into it in exchange for something good.
Are we willing to delayed gratification to accomplish our purpose and our mission?
We forsake something temporary for a life that leads to eternity.
We forego trivial to possess and achieve what is eternal.
Being successful requires your life into it.
The road to success is not a straight path. But rather it is complex, but with knowledge, guidance, and perseverance, nothing is impossible.
Our success depends on the severity of our desires.
God says, delight yourselves in the Lord and He will give you the DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.
THE POWER IN ONE
Understanding the power in one can unleash the floodgates of blessings in our life.
Understanding God’s work is important.
God created men from His single creation. From one man, He formed his wife. They became two.
But God said that when a man and woman joined together they become ONE FLESH; not two but ONE.
God created the plants but He doesn’t need to recreate them every now and then rather, from ONE SEED it becomes a TREE, and from one tree it can create a forest.
We ask God for so many blessings, but actually, we need only a blessing because out of that blessing God can overflow it that we don’t have room to store.
THE FLOODGATES OF HEAVEN
When God blesses you, you don’t need many blessings.
What we need is ONLY a blessing.
In Malachi 3:10 “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test me now on this,” says the Lord of Host, “if I will not open the floodgates of heaven and POUR OUT A BLESSING UNTIL IT OVERFLOWS.”
To access God’s blessing is to know the key to UNLOCK the floodgates of heaven.
In Mt 7:7 Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened
Because in 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people who are called in my name will humble themselves and pray and SEEK my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven will forgive their sins and heal their land.”
NO ROOM TO STORE
Are we ready to receive a blessing that there is no room to store?
You don’t need blessings you need only a BLESSING.
Because God can give one person, one event in your life, one opportunity, one call, one smile that can open the doors to lead to more blessings.
Just declare that you’re blessed and say it “I AM BLESSED”
Blessing is not a SITUATION but it’s a DISPOSITION.
When I have an I-phone I am blessed. When I have a car, I have a job I am blessed, I have clothes am blessed but when my phone is gone, my job is gone I am still blessed because the things that are in me do not determine my blessings but the God that I believe and trust.
You are blessed when in spite that you have a migraine, you are sick you’re still alive. In spite that you have no job, despite all your affliction, you are still alive because we are blessed.
God is about to bless you where have no room to store.
DESIRE TO BE A BLESSING
The ultimate purpose of blessings is for us to be a blessing to others.
God is about to bless you that you will be a blessing to others.
The sick that you will be touch shall be healed.
Those whom you will minister shall be blessed.
Don’t search for blessings because if you desire to be a blessing, your blessings will be full.
Blessings will follow if you walk not in the path of the ungodly but his delight is the Lord.
He will give you ONE PERSON. Like Naomi to Ruth; Like Boaz to Ruth & Naomi, like Elijah to Elisha, like the butler to Joseph; like Moses to the Israelites. Like Coach Roach to Manny Pacquiao. Like PRRD to Senator Bong Go.
God will bring one person that will influence your life and leads you to your destiny.
He gives you a person to bring you to your next blessings that will open a door to your destiny…
I and my wife desire to be an investor and our prayer are to have a mentor, then a friend of mine invited us to attend a seminar and that event was another door that opens to a new venture of knowledge and knowing other positive-minded investors.
One lock to open the door, but we need only one master key to open everything.
God will release one thing in your life that affects the whole thing…
One message, one inspiration, one word…could change the trajectory of your life.
One decision that shall turn the event of our life.
ONE STEP COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE
One step will make a difference.
Like Peter when he step out of his boat, he experienced what no other people had experienced; walking on top of the water.
Every journey always begins with a single step.
We may not experience the abundance of the blessings that are prepared for us because we fear stepping out of our boat of the comfort zone.
Your fear is holding you back from stepping out of your past.
Your fear is holding you back from stepping entering into a new relationship after the break-up, new investment, and business venture past set back.
Sometimes, our blessing is not on our boat.
Sometimes our destiny is not on that boat and for us to reach our destiny is to take that one leap.
If we continue to hold on to that boat and sleep comfortably on the bottom deck, God can use storms to destroy that boat and even throw us to be swallowed by a fish only to accomplish His purpose in our life.
Never grieve on the broken boat but pick up whatever is left as God has prepared something new for you. Be ready to step out of your boats.
ONE SAVIOR, ONE CHANCE
The sin of one man tainted all the next generation with original sin. But with one man, He redeemed the bondages of many.
We have One Jesus, one Cross that saves millions of lives.
One savior, one God, one Redeemer.
We are all sinners, we have all inequities, we are slaves and bondage of our sins and we need only one sacrifice, one Jesus to free us from where we were and from where we are.
Justice says your curse but mercy is your chance, if you have been given ONE chance will you accept Him today.
May God blesses you with that ONE THING,
