I was spending the time praying in my Dad’s church that Saturday. When I was about rounding off, Dad walked in for meeting that was about to start.
I went to greet him. Then he said, “I have seen the video devotionals. They are powerful. I love that thing you say at the beginning”. I repeated what I used to say.
Dad said, “God bless you”. The moment I was saying amen, I was already on my knees. If all he wanted to say before was “God bless you”, a tap opened and more began to flow. For some few days after then, people were blessing me for all the reasons imaginable and at times, unimaginable.
Beloved, there is a posture that attracts more. All Solomon would have gotten would have been maybe wisdom but there was a posture of humility that he took that attracted more.
Solomon did not grandstand as a king. He simply told God that he did not know how to govern the people that he has been enthroned to lead. He asked for wisdom.
See the response of God to Solomon’s posture:
I will give you what you asked for! I will give you a wise and understanding heart such as no one else has had or ever will have! And I will also give you what you did not ask for—riches and fame! No other king in all the world will be compared to you for the rest of your life!
1 Kings 3:12-13 NLT
Did you see these two lines?
I will give you what you asked for!
And I will also give you what you did not ask for
The posture of Solomon attracted more. There is a posture that the Lord saw and gave Solomon more than he asked.
Beloved, the posture of your heart is a key to drawing from your father- biological and spiritual. The Words of a Father over your life are very powerful. Make sure you stay in a posture that draws more and more.
It could be as simple as a loud Amen when they bless you even when it is on the phone. It could be as simple as getting on your knees. They will end up pouring more than they intended.
As a Pastor, there are times I want to say blessings over a person but I pick a restrain because of their attitude. I simply say a casual prayer and move on. But there are some that you wanted to say a simple prayer but it turned out to be an overflow of blessings.
What is the posture of your heart?
There is a posture that attracts more!
