Be For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. Psalm 5:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Blessing travels in the direction of the obedient.
Previously, we saw the power of the Blessing and its impact in the life of the blessed. It is also important to understand how you can activate the power of the Blessing so as to experience the practicality of the Blessing.
Now, the first key that activates the Blessing is, Obedience to God and righteousness.
In the Book of Deuteronomy 28:1-2, the Bible says, ‘…if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God,… all these blessings shall come on thee….’
So, obeying the Voice of the Lord is a trigger for the Blessing. The Blessing travels in the direction of the obedient. Abraham obeyed God and he was blessed. Obeying blessing-provoking instructions from the Scripture and prophetic instructions from the prophet God has placed over you, is a doorway to the blessing.
Also, according to our anchor Scripture, the Bible says, For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. So, the righteous are positioned for the Blessing. Righteousness attracts the Blessing but crookedness and wickedness kill the Blessing. Righteousness involves living a God-pleasing life; a life devoid of sin.
Beloved, as you obey God and work in the path of righteousness, you will experience God’s Blessing, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: The Blessing travels in the direction of the obedient.
1. Study the Bible consistently and continually; locate Blessing-provoking instructions and follow them tenaciously.
2. Avoid the way of crookedness and iniquity.
3. Get and listen to the message titled The Tragedy of Evil Money by Dr Paul Enenche.
PRAYER: Lord, I make demands on the grace to walk in righteousness. Cause Your Blessing to rest on me and my family, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
