iDENTiFY YOUR BLESSOR :PROPHET W MAGAYA | Scripture: John 4.6-14 | 6 Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon.
7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)
9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.[a])
10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”
13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
As youth you have a life ahead of you and will live longer than you have lived. Jesus Christ in the scripture had sent the desciples to buy food as he was seated at the well when a woman came to draw water. He asked for water and the woman refused saying Jesus and Samaritans could not correlate. After the conversation they had the woman realized she was talking to the Messiah and that is how news spread.
God does not care about your past mistakes and can still use you. If you take it upon yourself to ensure that your fellow youth turn to God, God will use you. If you want your life to be successful you need to have an eye which sees potential. As a youth you are bound to meet people who will take you to the next level. How are you going to talk to them? In the scripture the woman in question spoke to Jesus like a nobody. When in actual fact she was talking to God Himself.
If you fail to identify a blessor then you are doomed. It was the patience of Jesus that resulted in the woman receiving her salvation. In everyday of our lives there are people who are placed in our lives to raise us up to the next level in life. Some are placed just to say good morning or to give you a blessing of transport. Everyday the devil blinds our eyes not to see those who are supposed to bless us hence we end up with those who are out to harm us.
You need to pray that the Lord opens up your eyes so that you can identify your blessor and not push them away. You need to relate well with the people around you because they might carry very important information that can change your life. You need to be careful on how you talk and address people lest you frustrate them and lose out on your blessing. Your eyes should be able to see beyond the face value. When Jesus was crucified Joseph bought the body because he was friend with the disciples.
Joseph had the eye to see what was beyond. You need to have an eye that sees potential. The poverty spirit will cause you to frustrate the one who is supposed to lift you up. 99%as of the times we are not made rich by our family but strangers. You need to have an eye that can discern and see beyond. One might appear rich and not have a bright future. The current and outward look does not determine one’s tomorrow you need to see beyond. Do not see with your eyes; see with your heart so that you can see beyond. Some people that come your way are there to deceive you and take away your blessing.
The devil does not want you close to your true blessing; he will make you ignore it. When you get into a commuter omnibus you need to greet the person next to you because you might just never know they could be carrying your project. Never take anyone for granted because you never know your end. There is always a good way of saying no; do not slam the door because life had a way of turning around. Never make such a mistake, do not make people hate you because of how you respond to them.
If it is a no there is a way to say it that gives room for tomorrow. There is always a turnaround in life.
How you respond matters most and create a better you. If you are not a good speaker do not speak and if you are not a good negotiator do not negotiate lest you push away your blessor. This life is only won by those who understand the tactic of survival. Praying and fasting must add to creating good relationship. If you don’t do that then you are not going anywhere. You ignore those around you including your own neighbours. You should learn to greet those who are around you and elders you come across in order to attain their favour. Your neighbours should respect you the way you respect them because life is full of mystery. Just a simple greeting can gain you a lot of favour.
Treat people fairly and with respect. Make them be on your side the day you make a mistake. Never meet your blessor before you understand them because you might say things they do not like and offend them and end up missing out on your blessing. When we speak of favour it is a spiritual release that comes from someone above you.
You have to be what your blessor likes not what you like in order to attract favour from them; study a person before you interact with them so as to avoid blocking your blessing.
