7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.
8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Happy weekend beloved, Our God is a God of abundance. After blessing you, He can make you a channel of blessing too.

May God bless us all as we journey through April and beyond.
Today’s Powerful Confession: I confess today that without Jesus, I can do nothing, I acknowledge that my sufficiency is Christ and my relevance is in Him. Therefore my possibilities are Godsized and not man-sized. I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. I enjoy of the abundance of heaven because I serve an abundant God who gives it to me in abundance. There is no impoverishment or decline in my life in Jesus’ name, Amen. Hallelujah!
OPEN HEAVEN 22 APRIL 2023 MESSAGE
Our God is very generous. When He decides to bless, He does so abundantly. For example, when the wedding hosts ran out of wine for their guests, Jesus gave them much better wine in abundance (John 2:1-11). Psalm 68:19 says, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.”
In Deuteronomy 28:1-2, He talks about great blessings — blessing so great that they’ll overtake you. The kind of blessing that will cause you to say, “Lord this is too much” will begin to come your way from now, in Jesus’ name.
Beyond loading you with blessings every day, God can make you so blessed that you will become a blessing to others. That is what He did through Solomon. In (1 Kings 3:13), God said He would bless Solomon so much that no king would be like him all through his life. Solomon’s blessing caused the Israelites to be blessed also. (1 Kings 10:27) says, ‘And the king made silver to be in Jerusalem as stones, and cedars made he to be as the sycomore trees that are in the vale, for abundance.”
God can do the same for you. He can bless you so much that no one in your generation will ever be poor again. This type of blessing however, comes to those who give sacrificially to God like Solomon did in (1 Kings 3:4).
In 2007, one young man came to me, saying he wanted to pay for the feeding at our next convention so I gave him a conservative estimate of what it would cost to feed one million people twice daily for a week. He said he would get back to me. I didn’t expect to see him again, but he came back the following week as promised and paid for it.
Apparently, he had gone to get a loan from a bank because he couldn’t afford it. Before long, the same bank he took the loan from invited him to become their Managing Director. If you are willing to give sacrificially to God, He will also make you so blessed that you will become a blessing to others.

OPEN HEAVEN 22 APRIL 2023 HYMN
HYMN 17 – THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS
1. “There shall be showers of blessing”
This is the promise of love;
There shall be season refreshing
Send from a savior above
Showers of blessing
Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy drops round us are falling
But for the showers we plead.
2. “There shall be showers of blessing”
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys;
Sound of abundance of rain.
3. “There shall be showers of blessing”
Send them upon us Oh Lord!
Grant to us now a refreshing;
Come now and honour Thy Word.
4. “There shall be showers of blessing”
Oh, that today thy might fall,
Now as to God we are Confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!
5. “There shall be showers of blessing”
If we but trust and obey;
There shall be season refreshing,
If we let God have his way.
