SCRIPTURE:And he divided himself against them by night, he and his servants, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah,… And he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot…. Genesis 14:15-16
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:When you are blessed, you are empowered unto victory in battle.
Yesterday, we saw that being established in the Blessing is a non-negotiable requirement for existence in the realm of dominion and authority in life.
Today, we are going to see how the Blessing positions a person in the realms of authority and dominion.
Now, how does the Blessing position a person in the realm of authority and dominion?
1. The Blessing establishes a leadership mandate on the life of the blessed
The Blessing makes leaders out of ordinary people. It puts the blessed in command spiritually, financially, academically, etc. Beloved, whatever makes you blessed, puts you in front ahead of others.
2. The Blessing empowers the blessed for the conquest of resistance
When you are blessed, you are empowered unto victory in battle. In Genesis 14:13-16, Abraham, the blessed, went into battle and destroyed the army of four nations. So, the Blessing is not gentle; it is a powerful force.
Beloved, you are not permitted to be blessed and end in defeat.
3. The Blessing empowers the blessed to rise to the top
No power on earth is strong enough to prevent the rise of the blessed; to be blessed is to rise in life.
Beloved, I decree the release of God’s Blessing on your life, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: When you are blessed, you are empowered unto victory in battle.
1. Make demands on the Blessing of God upon your life.
2. Determine to exercise your dominion mandate as a blessed child of God.
PRAYER: Father, by Your Blessing upon my life, I decree the termination of every resistance against my life and destiny. Nothing can prevent my fulfilment in life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
