SCRIPTURE: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee,…And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son,…and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. Genesis 12:2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Do not be afraid of daring the undareable if the Blessing of God is upon you.
Recorded events in the Scripture and diverse experiences of life have made it clear that it takes a greater force, which is the force of God’s Blessing, to overcome the forces working against one’s fulfilment in life.
In Genesis Chapter Eleven, the Bible makes it clear that Abraham’s father, Terah, was going to Canaan but he died on the way, in the land of Haran. He had three sons: Nahor, Abram, and Haran, the father of Lot. Haran died before his father. Nahor existed without relevance. So, in their family, they had the trinity of setbacks – starting without finishing, living without relevance and dying before time or premature death. That trinity of calamity was in existence in Abraham’s family before the Blessing came upon him, exempted him, distinguished him and made him the first to fulfil destiny.
So, the Blessing of God in the life of a person forbids the existence of embargoes. It empowers the blessed to exist as barrier breakers, obstacle crossers, limit overcomers and territory takers. It also establishes the blessed as generational pace setters, standard bearers and reference points.
Beloved, when the Blessing is upon you, you reach where no one in your family has reached. So, do not be afraid of daring the undareable if the Blessing of God is upon you.
Today, I declare to you that where your family members have never reached in life, you are reaching there by the power of the Blessing, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Do not be afraid of daring the undareable if the Blessing of God is upon you.
1. Always believe that your case is different.
2. Dare the impossible and hold unto the Word of God concerning your life for a breakthrough.
3. Refuse to confess negatively; be positivistic, enthusiastic and optimistic.
PRAYER: O Lord, I subscribe to Your barrier-breaking Blessing upon my life. Make me a pacesetter in my generation, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
