On one of my husband’s outreaches to Mexico, a 7 year old boy approached him and asked him these questions: “Are you from the United States?” My husband said, “Yes”. The 7 year old boy then asked, “Do the clouds stop at the border?” It was a very cloudy day and in this little boy’s mind, he thought that the clouds stop right at the border and went no further. My husband said, “No, the clouds do not have borders.”
Maybe some of us have the same questions about God but instead it would be said like this: “Does God bless only certain people, certain states, certain countries, etc...”
God does not limit His blessings with borders. The Bible says that God does not show favoritism but accepts from EVERY nation the one who fears Him and does what is right.
In every nation, every kind of person is welcomed. This is precisely what Christ told the apostles in Matthew 28:19 when He said, “Go therefore and make disciples of ALL the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
If you feel God’s blessings have not reached your “borders”, all you may have to do is raise your “security gate” and let Him into your heart.
The Bible is very clear in saying that God accepts from every nation the one who fears Him and does what is right. Many times it is us that limit His blessings in our life. Let Him in and allow Him the opportunity to bless you with this promise and reassurance: “I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
