Are Your Blessings Backlogged?
April 23, 2015
I have been talking a lot about being repaid for all that was lost. Some people are reporting that they are receiving their blessings, while others may still be experiencing a backlog or clog in their lives. Here are a few things that may help open blessings over your life.
Sink clog dream
I had a dream just this week in which an over-controlling father was harsh to his family. In the dream everyone respected and honored the man even though he was mean and hurt people. His sink drain was backed-up and I had to step in and remove the old debris and open things up.
I knew the meaning of the dream was that God is revealing places in which we need deeper healing with our image of God the Father. Backed up drains can be a prophetic symbol of unforgiveness.
Modern parable in a movie
Last February I released this revelation in a blog and feel it is also significant for this time:
I watched the movie The Judge with Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr. It was a sad and depressing story about a father who was a judge and was not kind to his children. His children did not flourish and longed for a blessing from their father. The father’s harsh judgments had made him sick and destroyed the lives of people around him.
God spoke to me that this is the condition of many Christians today. People who view God as a judge tend to treat others harshly and it is a misrepresentation of the loving Father in Heaven.
Parents and spiritual parents hold the key to revival. As we humble ourselves and reach out to our children then healing will come. The Spirit of Elijah (Luke 1:17) is coming to turn the hearts of the parents to the children.
A dividing line is here as God is revealing His true nature to people and calling us to be humble and love others.
Love conquers all
Over the past few years my message to the world has been one of love. Jesus said that the greatest commandment of all is to love God, love your neighbor and love yourself (Matthew 22:37-39).
The evidence or fruit of love in a person’s life is pretty obvious. Love overcomes.
Love casts out fear. Love conquers all. Love covers over a multitude of sin.
Forgive and you will be forgiven
Jesus spoke about how judging others and forgiveness is directly tied to us receiving a blessing.
Luke 6:37-38 NIV
Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
One of the major things that you can do today that will radically change your life is to find someone different than you and show them an act of kindness.
This is a time to reconcile relationships and clear the spiritual atmosphere. Forgiving and loving unconditionally is what is needed for us to move into the new season at hand. As you do this, a backlog of blessing will begin to flow into your life.
