Wherever You Go, the Blessing Goes
By Joel Osteen - Sep 20, 2010
A couple of weeks ago, a young lady was telling me that she was having the best year in her sales career that she ever had. She was so excited. Other people in her office are down and the industry is slow in general. But she said, "Joel, it seems like every time I turn around a new client is coming my way." She explained that on three or four occasions, she was just at the right place at the right time. Unexpectedly, business was dropped right in front of her. She said, "I'm supposed to go out and find customers, but it's like customers are always trying to find me."

One thing I can tell you about this young lady is that she is a giver. She volunteers at the church. She gives her time and resources. She honors God with her first fruits. She's living what the scripture says, "When you obey God's Word because of the commanded blessing on your life, increase and promotion are going to chase you down." Not just in the good times when the economy is up and everybody is doing great. No, even in the slow seasons you can expect Jehovah-Jireh to show up and increase you in spite of the circumstances.

Psalm 37 says, "Even in famine the righteous will have more than enough." Notice, it doesn't say "barely enough," it says "more than enough." Why is that? Because wherever you go, the blessing goes. Your company should be glad to have you because when you show up, the blessing of God shows up. Be encouraged today to keep being your best and following God's Word because there is a commanded blessing on your life. He wants to overtake you with His blessings and prosper you in every area of your life!

All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you obey the LORD your God (Deuteronomy 28:2, NAS).
