God Will Bless Your Effort


“The LORD shall open unto thee His good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in His season, and to bless all the work of your hand: and you shall lend unto many nations, and you shall not borrow” (Deuteronomy 28:12)

I always feel so sorry for people who complain of unemployment. How can anyone complain about unemployment in a world this big? If you’re a child of God, you don’t need to cry that you don’t have a job; simply create one. Some, after reading this, might say sarcastically, “You make it sound so easy.”

This world abounds with opportunities. The truth however is that the wealth of the world and its riches belong to God, and He’s made them available to you: “And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places that thou may know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, Am the God of Israel (Isaiah 45:3).  It’s up to you to decide to take advantage of the vast supplies in the earth. If that’s your decision, then ensure that you do something with your abilities.

When God called Moses, He asked him, “What do you have in your hands?” Moses replied, “A rod” He could have said “Nothing” because there wasn’t anything special about the rod until the power of God came upon it and it became the rod of God with which He performed miracles. It’s not enough to just sit down and dream. A dream that can’t begin today will never materialize. There must always be a connection between your dream and today. The connection has to be by faith and the Bible says faith is not complete without works.

What skill do you have that God can bless? Remember, you may start out small but when the power of God comes upon your effort it’ll prosper beyond your dreams. The Bible says there’s profit in all labour (Proverbs 14:23). So, if you don’t labour there will be no profit. That’s why you can’t afford to not have a job. If there’s no work, there’ll be no pay. There must be something you’re doing; there must be a point of contract for God to bless you. He wants to bless your effort and give you greater ideas.


I believe in the ability of God in me to do creative things. I put that ability to work today. My spirit is alert to receive and I am prompt to respond to ideas from God in everything I do; for I know that whatever I lay my hands upon to do prospers, in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
