Maybe you’ve heard this imaginary heaven story before…
A few angels approached the throne and said, “Lord, there is a mortal on earth asking for your blessing on a project he is working on. How would you like to bless him?” The Lord asks, “What did he send his faith in?” The angels replied, “He sent his faith in a thimble.” The Lord responds, “Fill the thimble with blessings and send it back to him. According to his faith be it unto him.”
The angels came to the Lord again and said, “Another mere mortal is asking for blessings from you.” Again the Lord inquires, “What did he send his faith in?” The angels replied, “He sent his faith in a fifty- gallon barrel.” With a smile, the Lord responds, “Fill the barrel with blessings and send it back to him. According to his faith, be it unto him.”
The blessings in my life have grown proportionate to my faith. This doesn’t necessarily mean I’ve received more blessings because of my faith. What it does mean is my faith has opened my eyes to blessings I once ignored.
How big is your faith?
Are there blessings your eyes do not see?
Matthew 9:29, “Then (Jesus) touched their eyes and said, ‘According to your faith will it be done to you.'”
