“God’s Excessive Agape”


Bishop Houston Fountain of Life
Deuteronomy 28:2
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.

Praise the Lord Beloved.
You know some people have a very dim viewpoint about what God will provide for them materially. 

Sure, they trust Him to feed and clothe them, but they don’t trust Him to feed and clothe them very well!!!

Somehow, they’ve gotten the idea that God’s an old penny pincher who will do little more than put rags on their backs and beans on their tables. But that’s not what Jesus told us. He said in Matthew 6 that God would clothe us better than He clothed Solomon. 

Beloved, that one statement alone proves that God wants to do more than just meet our basic needs. He wants to bless us abundantly. I know that from personal experience.

Several years ago, I came home and went to the mailbox and got the mail out of the box as I normally do when I get home before First Lady, Donece.

When I opened the mailbox there were only 3 envelopes in the box. 

So, I went into the house with them and set my things down went to my recliner and opened the first envelope it was a promotion from a local retail store that had just opened in my area. I opened the second envelope and it was a reminder for a Dr.’s appointment. Then I opened the third envelope and to my surprise was 3 checks inside that totaled 3 zeros after the comma that had numbers in front of the comma. They were sent to me from 2 men and a lady who’d been blessed by the Lord through my ministry.

Now, I was perplexed because CHOF Ministry don’t solicit anything worldly or monetary. All we ask for is People’s Agape. We believe God will supply all our needs and He has.  

“Lord,” I said, “Thank You for the blessing
but You have always provided our ministry’s needs. I didn’t ask You for this money, and I wasn’t believing for these checks. Why did they come to my mail box?”

Then the Lord spoke up on the inside of me:
“Have you ever read the scripture in Deuteronomy that says blessings shall come on and overtake those who hearken to My voice?”
I answered and said “yes Lord I have” 
He said, “Well, son, you’ve just been overtaken.”

Now, am I saying God gave me those checks just so I could enjoy them? Yes!!! That’s exactly what I’m saying.

First Timothy 6:7 says, “[He] giveth us richly all things to enjoy.” 

Beloved, God is a loving Father. He gets great pleasure from blessing His children. God is spendthrift where we’re concerned. But don’t let that worry you. He can afford it.

Beloved, once you truly believe that and begin to hearken to His voice, it won’t be long before His blessings will be overtaking you.

“To God Be the Glory!!!”
