SCRIPTURE: In the beginning God created the Heaven and the earth. So God created man in his own image,…And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion…. Genesis 1:1, 27,28
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Blessing of God is more crucial than money for the beginning of anything.
Previously, we saw that the Blessing of God is one of the most powerful forces on earth. The Blessing is also the curse-proof, struggle-proof garment that God Himself put on a person. It is something God decorates a person with in order to exclude him/her from the realm of curses, limitations and struggles.
Now, let’s look at one of the benefits of the power of the Blessing:
The Blessing imparts the supernatural force for the commencement of a new beginning.
The Blessing is more crucial than money for the beginning of anything. In Scripture, we understand that whenever anything new was about to be inaugurated, God started it with the Blessing. At creation, God did not give Adam money or certificate but the Blessing. So, you can begin a new home, business, or ministry with the Blessing and it cannot fail.
Now, I would like you to take note of the following:
1. The Blessing is needed for victory over stagnation or inertia
It is the Blessing that makes a person overcome what is holding others back.
2. The Blessing is the force behind every supernatural success story
To be blessed is to be successful.
3. The Blessing is the factor for doing what others have not done before and doing it excellently
Beloved, make up your mind to be blessed by God no matter what it would cost you.
Remember this: The Blessing is more crucial than money for the beginning of anything.
1. Make demands on God’s Blessing upon anything you are doing or intend to do.
2. Determine to follow the Will of God always.
3. Be involved in covenant practices like tithing, giving to the poor, the less privileged and for Kingdom advancement.
PRAYER: O Lord, I cannot succeed in life without You. Please release Your Blessing upon me and upon all I do, in Jesus’ Name.
