Can we stand to be blessed?!

My mom and me were out and about yesterday, and I did something nice for her...no biggie, just did her a favor. She kinda just brushed it off and hardly noticed...I teased her, and said, "See there...some folks just can't stand to be blessed!!"

She laughed and apologized, so I teased her the more, but it got me to thinking...

Can we stand to have the favor of God on our lives?! Is that a responsibility too great or do we feel out of our league with His blessings?! Do we quinch the Spirit in this area and try to pass it off for someone else to do?!

Can we stand to have the windows of heaven opened and blessings we seemingly cannot contain fall on us?! Would we be good stewards and discern how to handle being financially blessed?!

Can we stand to have divine healing and strength?! I have known people who had a 'persecution complex' and seemed to relish in pain and suffering...can we stand to walk in health, both in body and mind?!

Can we stand to see our churches thrive with new souls coming into the Kingdom?! Is there 'room' for them in the house or is the sin in the camp crowding them out?!

Can we stand to be blessed by God?!

I'll make this personal to me and then you can see if it applies to you...if 'Mr' Right' (is there such a person?) walked into my life, could I handle it?! Have I made the necessary preparations in my heart and mind to commit and submit according to the Scriptures?! btw, I'm not out hunting, just asking myself...

If the perfect job and opportunity came my way, am I prepared to receive it or make excuses for not doing so?! Am I ready for the promotion or pay increase?!

Can I stand to have God bless my soul and elevate me and use me till He uses me up, or will the 'big head spirit' rise up and kill the anointing?!

Can I stand to be blessed?!

Today I am asking myself these questions and I pray they speak to you as well...

Just ask a majority of major lottery winners or those who come into massive inheritances.

Of course I know that I could handle it no problem!

Giving God the glory is vital in everything we do...
