The blessings are the manifestation of The Blessing upon our lives. It’s God’s goodwill and good deeds being with us. It’s a supply of God’s possessions to us.
The Impact of The Blessing
(Proverbs 10:22; Job 1:10; Isaiah 51:1-2).
Wherever you see Blessing, increase must follow.
(Genesis 26:12-14; Genesis 30:27-33,43).
Whenever there’s the blessing, it makes us rich.
You will not only increase but you will increase exceedingly.
You have to have the blessing mentality - (Psalms 1:1-3).
Assignment: Read Deuteronomy 28 to understand more of the blessings and the curses (things that shouldn’t be in your life).
It is possible you have the blessing but you are not using it. The blessing needs to be activated through the following:
1. The Blessing mindset - (Psalms 1:1-3).
2. Obedience - (James 1:25).
5. Being a blessing to others - (Genesis 12:2).
6. Having a higher spiritual authority speak over your life - (Genesis 27:26-29).
7. By tithing: We tithe because we are connected to Abraham’s blessing, not Moses’ - (Genesis 14:20; Malachi 3:9-12).
You don’t give your tithe to the poor. Your tithe is holy. You give it upwards not downwards.
Speaking the Blessing is the authentic way designed by God for the Blessing to pass from generation to generation - (Hebrews 7:6-7; Hebrews 11:21).
You cannot cajole God. Obedience is better than sacrifice. You have to walk in obedience.
Jacob activated the blessing by tithing - (Genesis 28:20-22)
You don’t tithe from what is left. You tithe first so what is left is blessed. The tithe is your first 10%.
Things would have been rough for Jacob if not for his relationship with God - (Genesis 31:41-42).
Tithing is a covenant between you and God and whenever you keep your side, God keeps his side - (Genesis 31:10-13).
