Today we will be dealing with the 5 Ways to know when something is from God.
God has given us many good things to sustain us here on earth. God has blessed us in all areas we can ever think of that is why the book of Psalms says I’m grateful for your mercies that is as countless as of the sand of the sea. He has done so many things for us that he didn’t leave out any blessings. There are some gifts we get from God that we don’t have to doubt that God is the one in charge of the blessings. For example, He gave us
- Victory over our enemies
- Created an access to Him
- Sent us the holy spirit to comfort us
Examples of good things that God blesses us with;
- Material Blessings, loving families, great friends, houses, cars, magnificent buildings, plenty Money
- Marital blessings
- Financial breakthrough
- Favour in all ramification etc
We are going to be discussing five signs to know that the things we’re getting are from God.
You feel good and happy when you know you’re getting your blessings from God . The bible says will my people believe if there’s no signs and wonders, that’s how we know that somethings are from God especially when something you’ve been asking from God for a very long time is answered.
So, how will you know if God is truly blessing you? , Let’s read the paragraph below;
5 Ways To When Something Is From God
1. Your Prayers Are Answered
Let’s say you’ve been asking God for a long time for a contract that will catapult you into greater glory because it’s worth lots of money, the you suddenly get a call that the contract has been awarded to you, you will be so happy right ? And hour next utterance will be thank you Jesus. This is a sign that God is still in the business of answering prayers and He’s never going to fail His own children.
Do you pray every day? How long have you been asking God for a gift? Have you been praying for a very long time ? If yes, what do you do when you realize that your prayers have been answered? Answered prayers are surely a sign of being blessed. God listens to the prayers of His beloved children. When your prayers are answered we start getting some things from God that without doubt we know He sent His blessings to us though it might not be in a way we expected. The most important thing to know is that when praying we should pray to God according to His will and purpose for our lives.
Prayer according to God’s will means you have to ask for those that are not against His Word. Plus, your motives must be pure and glorifying to God. I doubt God will answer your prayer to harm the people who have offended you. But, on the other hand, He will be pleased if you pray for those who persecute you instead. Imagine asking God to bless you with a car so that you can oppress your neighbors, funny right, apparently God won’t bless you with a car because you’re trying to get God to bless you to use for your own will and bad plan. When praying let’s ask for what we want according to God’s plans and will.
You’re always happy and contented
God’s blessings comes with no conditions. If he blessed you you will just notice that there are somethings that you don’t need to ask for again, our father Abraham for example was blessed in areas, he was so blessed that even God made him the father of many nations , and guess what he lived a long life too and was happy with Sarah. The happiness that comes with God’s blessings is enough to tell us that what we’re currently enjoying is definitely from God and not from human. Even when God sends His blessings through human, He will still make it known to us. When we’re blessed by God all He needs is our grateful heart, Being a grateful person reflects a blessed life. It shows that you have so much to be thankful for every day and you are aware of that favor. That is why a grateful heart is a sign of being constantly blessed.
Also you don’t need to be rich, famous, or get everything you want to be thankful to the Lord. What makes a person grateful is having a sense of contentment. You notice that when you’re blessed by God or you receive something good from God you notice that your whole body system is happy and you will keep on grinning from ear to ear.
You receive overflowing blessings
Many of us don’t know the privileges we enjoy from God,If every day you and your family get to eat at least three times a day, you are blessed. Do you also have a house where you feel safe, secure, and comfortable? If yes, then you are blessed indeed.
Even if you do not have great wealth, but your needs are always met, it means that God indeed takes care of you. How much more if you constantly receive more blessings than what you need? Having resources that are beyond your needs is a sign of blessings. You’re blessed from God when you’re not begging to feed, you can afford to eat three meals a day.. You have the ability to support yourself financially and in some other areas ,you don’t know what God has done for you.
4. You Are Successful In Everything You Do
When you’re richly blessed, by God everything you do becomes easy for , things that look so difficult for others is always easy for you to deal with. If it seems like everything you do turns out excellent, it means that God blesses the works of your hands. May be in your school, work, home, or in the community, others can see that everything you do prospers. If this is you, then you are truly blessed.
5. You Experience Favor Wherever You Go
Being favored is another sign of being blessed by God. The first and most important favor that you have received from Him is the gift of eternal life through faith in Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”Another example of being favored is getting others’ support for your plans or needs. For instance, one would be getting a free ride when you had to walk home in freezing weather. Or you could have received a scholarship for the university or be nominated for promotion at work.
