SCRIPTURE: And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:28
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you begin with the Blessing, you must end with dominion.
The Blessing of God is confirmed to be the answer to resistance and opposition, strife and rivalry. The Blessing positions the blessed in the realm of absolute dominion and authority. In a world where humanity is faced with all manner of resistance, opposition and oppression, the Blessing of God is the way out.
From our anchor Scripture, God blessed Adam and Eve saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion….
So, the Blessing positions the blessed in the realm of dominion and authority. If you begin with the Blessing, you must end with dominion, and dominion terminates resistance in life. This implies that a blessed person cannot end as a loser in life.
Abraham was at the background before the Blessing came upon his life and that Blessing took him to the forefront. You cannot be blessed and remain at the background.
A blessed person is in charge wherever he goes. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob were all in charge in their generation by the power of the Blessing. Joseph was in charge even in the prison because the Blessing was on him.
Beloved, desire the Blessing of God if you want to have dominion over the forces of resistance and fulfil your destiny.
Remember this: If you begin with the Blessing, you must end with dominion.
1. Determine to be established in God’s Presence always for the impartation of the Blessing.
2. Refuse to accept defeat; make demands on the force of the Blessing for the termination of anything resisting your progress in life.
