I am truly only successful when I hear the cry of the poor. Help me Lord, to share what I have with those who have so little. Help me not be selfish and hoard your blessings for my own wants and desires, but be willing to share with those you bring my way. Open my eyes Lord to those around me who could use a hand up. Help me Lord, to put behind me the thinking of “getting all I can and can all I get”. You bless me to bless others. You shower me with your grace, so I can shower others with it. You give me more than enough, so I can give more than I could ever imagine.
Lord, thank you for the Victory provided for me at the cross, I gratefully receive it by faith. (Note: these “I Declare” devotions are meant to be proclaimed out loud, as a prayer – a part of your personal daily devotions.)
Proverbs 21:13 (ESV) Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered.
Proverbs 22:9 (ESV) Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.
Proverbs 22:16 (ESV) Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.
