THOUGHT OF THE WEEK - Initiate Your Blessings

ChrysanthemumAsk and it will be given to you; seek and you will find.” ....Matthew 7:7
You must initiate your blessings.  Never allow the enemy to use your emotions against you!
If you never ask for anything you will never receive anything. God will not release blessings to someone who will not speak up.  He teaches emphatically the necessity of being an initiator.  If you don’t initiate it, nothing significant will ever occur in your life.  If there is no asking, seeking, and knocking, there will be no giving, finding, and opening.
Too many people sit around and wish something would happen.  This will make you stagnant and miserable.  If you have dreams and aspirations, move toward those goals with vigor and precision.  Most Christians feel that God will do it all. That’s not true. 
You have to make your actions line up with your convictions, or you will live a fruitless life. What is even worse is the fact that in your old age, you will have to eat the fruit of what you did in your youth. Be careful what you cook!  Initiate your blessing.
