A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that makes haste to be rich shall not be innocent. ~ Proverbs 28:20
Brother Kenneth E. Hagin used to say, “God may not settle up every Saturday night, but He does settle up!” I believe this year of 2011 may be a time of God settling up with those who have been faithful. However, there is a subtle trick of the devil that we need to be aware of. That trick is to get people to give up right before their time of harvesting.
I’ve seen it before….. right before people get ready to get good and blessed by God they lose heart and give up; they quit being faithful. Many times they justify it by saying, “Hey, I’ve worked hard all of these years, I’ve been faithful to God and to the church. I just need some time off. After all, I deserve it. Let someone else carry the load for awhile.” This is just a trick of satan to keep you from reaping the harvest God has for you. Don’t fall for it! The Bible is very plain, “WE SHALL REAP IN DUE SEASON, IF WE FAINT NOT!”
So my advise to you is… if you’ve been one of the faithful ones, keep at it. If you’ve not been faithful, start today and you can get in on the blessings of 2011!
