I’ve been reading the books of I & II Samuel to my children. 2 Samuel 12:8 stood out to me. How giving is YHWH/God to all of us? He gave David Saul’s house and wives; as well as made him king over Israel and Judah, and then said to him: If that wasn’t enough, I would’ve given you more. Who says that? David had cities, houses, wives, servants, horses, mules, sheep, cattle, other farm animals, gold, silver and more….and God said He would have given him more if that wasn’t enough. How generous and lavish is YHWH/God?! Of course I began thinking about the Father’s generosity in my life. I have the kindest and most generous neighbors. We rarely return from our walks empty-hearted or handed. So many times, these people bless us with smiles and compliments. We have picked fruits, veggies and flowers from nearly every neighbor’s yard with a fruit tree or garden. My sweet neighbor Ms. Mare has given the kids so many neat games, toys and experiences. There’s a man who we met once, that leaves toys and games for the kids on our front porch from time to time.
I remember prior to having children, I wanted two boys and a girl (in that order). Not only did YHWH/God bless me with two boys and a girl in that order, He also exceeded my expectation with my baby girl. She is the MOST JOYFUL person I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. All of my children are absolute delights and blessings from Father. I just love them and I’m so very grateful that He gave me this great opportunity to train them in His way and impact generations to come. I don’t think it’s possible for YHWH/God to outdo Himself, but I think He came pretty close with these four children.
There is so much to thank YHWH/God for. It would take an eternity to list everything, so I’ll just choose a couple more things. I’m grateful for this country (U.S.A.). It might seem tumultuous right now; but it still is a great country. God loves us; and it’s very evident to me. He’s always looking for opportunities to bless us. I’m so encouraged by what’s going on in some pockets of the country…..thousands of salvations, pastors still having services in spite of fines and threats of being jailed, spontaneous worship breaking out in airports and other venues, believers drawing closer to the Most High. I just love it all!
I’ll end this post with a testimony of YHWH/God’s generosity. He is the most loving, kind and generous being ever. I thought to myself one night: “This house needs some flowers.” This was just a thought. I was thinking that a bouquet on the counter would be nice. Two days later, my husband wakes up and says: “I don’t know why, but I have this desire to get flowers for the house.” The very next day we hired a florist; and she has been bringing multiple bouquets of flowers to my home a couple times a month. Is YHWH/God not lavish and generous?! I was thinking one bouquet; but He was thinking multiple bouquets. I’m also grateful to Father for my husband. He’s a man that considers and hears from YHWH/God on everything. He’s definitely one of the best blessings of my life. I love hearing testimonies about YHWH/God’s goodness. How has He lavishly blessed you?
