The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. (Prov. 10:22)
The blessing of the Lord is not a material thing, but it produces tangible material effects in our lives. The old testament saints operated in the natural aspect of the blessing of the Lord, which was mostly manifested as prosperity. There is such a thing as divine prosperity, and it is founded on the working of the blessing of the Lord.
God’s blessing is an empowerment that causes the works of your hands to produce much more than expected. In reference to Isaac, the scripture says “then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him”. (Gen. 26:12 ). Everyone probably planted the same seed, on similar grounds, but had a different harvest. Isaac had a hundred-fold because God’s blessing was a higher power was working in his life.
The wonder of grace is that the very blessing of Abraham has come to us by faith in Jesus Christ, and prosperity is part of the package. “That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith”. (Gal. 3:14 KJV). We receive the blessing of the Lord by faith in Christ. You do not need to DO anything to be blessed, including giving and tithing. You release that blessing to work by giving. You are already blessed, so you can safely QUIT trying to get God to bless you.This mindset shift is important. Start living from this perspective, that you are blessed, with all the natural and spiritual aspects of that blessing. All that is left is to know how to make that blessing work in every aspect of your life.
The Word in your mind and mouth (1 Tim 4:15; Josh 1: 8)
Meditate on that Word above, keeping it in your mind and mouth.
Water the Seed( word) to grow. Invite the Spirit’s strength! (Isa 32:15; Zach 4:6)
Thank the Lord that you have been blessed in Christ by faith.
APPLY THE WORD TODAY!
Your door to a blessed life today is doing God’s Word. Refuse to be a hearer or reader only! (James 1:22-26)
Live from the blessing perspective. Go to work or your business with the mindset of being blessed and a blessing. Expect to be different, and believe that difference in everything you do because of the blessing.
