Acts 20:35 “And I have shown you everything, that it is necessary to labor and to take care of those who are weak and to remember the words of our LORD YESHUA, WHO said, ‘He who gives is more blessed than he who receives.’”
As HIS love breathes through
our vessels, carried out are
With HIS vision on display
for us to join, if we comply.
Else another shall be sanctioned
by HIS sovereign will directing
till our blessings and each
hope become quite clearly,
Then, by choosing well, shall saints embrace CHRIST’s
readiness to stand,
and with HIS hands and feet compelling; move as planned, refilling souls.
As HIServant co-missioned with you,
Devotional: Co-missions are those on which multiple vessels are sent. Some are done in tandem with each vessel fulfilling the same work. Others are done in order such as first planting, then watering / nurturing.
1 Corinthians 3:6 “I planted the seed and Apollos watered it, but GOD made it grow.” It is solely GOD’s loving purpose growing those who are HIS!
The irony of wanting to be blessed is that the greatest receiving of blessing comes through the greatest outpouring on and into others. It isn’t of a transactional nature where we go through the motions, absent of love.
We have CHRIST’s example and level of giving which none of us can ever live up to, let alone come anywhere near to matching!
The effort is substantial. Yes, there’s hard work clearly involved with receiving such wondrous blessings. But as Iron sharpens

What is within us might seem of little value. Maybe no one has ever nurtured the seed of life inside your frame.
But there is tremendous worth!
We only realize this as we accept that the paths HE places on…
will take us to someone who WILL see and experience the contents
HE deposited into us…as
Psalms 24:3-5 “Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who shall stand in HIS holy place?
He that has clean hands, and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul to vanity or sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the GOD of his salvation.”
Be patient and humbled while continuing to pour out whatever gift HE grows within your vessel! Then Acts 20:35 will come to life for you…bringing Life AND HIS rich blessings!
Amen and amen!
