As I was praying the other day, I saw giant platters that were served to people. There were snacks and drinks on the platter that I had never seen before. People were grabbing some of the snacks with excitement and leaving some on the platters. As a matter of fact a lot of snacks were left. The idea was that God serves us blessings. He comes into our lives with giant platters of blessings and we accept some of them and reject some of them. We don’t fully believe that we can have it all. We don’t fully believe that all these blessings can be for us.
We shy away from some major blessings because they are too good to be true. They are too big and too amazing but the Lord is telling us “Help yourself to all of My goodness.” God’s blessing are rich treasures from Heaven dropped on earth. They have to be received with faith. Today I want to encourage you to trust and believe that God has great things for you. Help yourself to the heavenly snacks. Help yourself to the snack that are out of this world. Help yourself to God’s goodness. It is for you. It is available today and it will bless you greatly!
Help yourself to God’s best. Reach out for the miracles. Reach out for the blessings. Reach out for His peace. Reach out for His joy. God has your best interest in mind and when you take the time to get to know Him, you learn about His goodness. His goodness is a bridge that can fill all the gaps in your life. I had so many gaps in my life. There was a lot of void and emptiness. I had lacks and failures in my life. I didn’t even know what I was missing. When you don’t have the goodness of God, you can’t understand that there is better out there. I used to think that I had what I deserved and I couldn’t expect more. I couldn’t want more. The little I had was not enough but it was what I thought was meant to be mine. Then I received Jesus as my Savior and I found out there was more to life.
I found out that life with Him was a major collision between Heaven and earth. My eyes were opened to some great possibilities but even then I didn’t know I could help myself to God’s goodness. I had glimpses of His beautiful love but I was too coy to grab it. God’s love is the biggest gift there and it is available to you and me. We ought to expect His love and we should get ahold of it with faith. Faith is the hand that helps us help ourselves to God’s goodness. Faith allows us to tap into God’s best. Faith gives us access to God’s blessings and it shows us that His blessings keep on coming. I am sitting at the table the Lord set before me and I am helping myself to all the love and all the goodness I can get.
Friend, enjoy the table the Lord has set before you. Sit at the table every day and eat the good things of the Lord. Learn that you are entitled to His best. Learn that everything He has put before you is rightly yours. Help yourself to joy. Help yourself to peace. Help yourself to hope. Help yourself to breakthroughs. Help yourself to blessings after blessings. Help yourself to the impossible made possible. Help yourself to Jesus. Fill yourself life with Jesus. Fill your heart with Jesus. Fill your day with Jesus. Have Jesus’ words at every meal. Make your day a living feast where the Lord’s words are your main source of nourishment. Help yourself to wisdom and knowledge from God. Do it all with faith. Don’t hesitate. Don’t fear.
Sit at the table and help yourself to the amazing life the Lord has for you. Today might not be your best day but as you reach out in faith and help yourself to the best, your day will change. Praise and thanksgiving can change any bad day into your best day so make them a habit. They will give you a helping of hope and a helping of peace. Help yourself to the promises of the Lord, friend. Do it daily and do it with gusto. God has great blessings for you that require a little bit of faith on your part. Keep believing and keep trusting Him. His goodness endures forever! Stay encouraged. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
