You Are Blessed

Wednesday June 29, 2011

Num. 23:19-20 tells us about God: He doesn’t lie, repent, or change His mind; He does what He says He will do. He speaks and then acts on His Word. When the Bible says, “Behold”, or “Verily, verily”, or “Of a truth”, it means that it is something amazing, something that is hard to believe. God commands a blessing, and His blessing cannot be reversed. In Ps. 30:5 we learn that God’s anger is momentary, but His favor lasts for a lifetime. His anger comes and goes, but He doesn’t change His mind about His favor and blessings. His favor doesn’t wear off. Eph. 1:3 says that God has (past tense) blessed us with every spiritual blessing. His blessings are not because of our performance, but because we are in the Kingdom of God. You don’t have to wait for the blessings. You are blessed. Deut. 28:1, 2 states that blessings shall overtake you. Under the Old Testament, blessings came from obedience to the law. In the New Testament you are blessed and then opportunity finds you. Everything you put your hand on is blessed. Expect the best, bounty, plenty, what you’re looking for, blessings. Speak and see blessing. Is. 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Don’t allow Satan’s power and witchcraft to put you in fear, and don’t let your thought-life tend toward the negative.
