“And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.” (Matthew 14: 19)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
In our Focal Scripture, Jesus blessed the loaves of bread and two fishes, and gave same to His disciples who distributed same to the multitude. Jesus put the blessing on the loaves and fishes, and He passed it on to the multitude. In the hands of the disciples, the loaves and fishes multiplied. The loaves and fishes changed hands, but the blessing was already on them, and they multiplied. Though they were broken, they multiplied.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: the blessing is on you. The blessing of multiplication is on you. The blessing of access is on you. The blessing of growth and increase is upon you. The blessing of divine visitation is upon you. The blessing of divine exemption is upon you. The blessing of endless congratulations is upon you. The blessing of distinction is upon you. The blessing of divine enthronement is upon you. The blessing is on you.
Hear me as I hear the Lord: your matters may change hands, but the blessing is upon you, and it will speak. You may change environment, but the blessing upon you will speak. You may move from favourable policy makers to unfavourable ones, but the blessing is upon you. You may move from favourable superiors to unfavourable superiors, but the blessing is upon you. You may move from place to place, but the blessing is on you.
The loaves and fishes were ordinarily not enough considering the number of people who needed to be fed, but because the blessing was on them, there was multiplication, and in the end, there were huge leftovers. The blessing caused unexplainable increase. The blessing upon you will cause unexplainable increase. The blessing will give you results you did not bargain for, and will take you to places you ordinarily won’t enter into.
No matter what happens around you, never forget that the blessings of God are upon you; and if the blessings be upon you, you will not remain small.
2 Corinthians 9: 8 says: “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:”
Declare With Me: The blessing is upon me; I cannot remain small; I grow, I increase, in Jesus’ name!
