Securing Gods Blessing #1

zacharydevotional0 Comments

The Blessing of God is not given at random, neither is a respecter of persons. God has given us a Book of Instruction, and has promised that if we choose to obey and follow it that there would not be enough room to contain the blessing that He has for us.

Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.
– Joshua 1:8 NLT

And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God.
– Deu 28:2 AMPC

Did you know God even delights in your blessing?

Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
– Psalm 35:27

Agree with God!

Never be lazy in your faith. If you are not experiencing something that the Word of God so clearly says we can have, find out why! Always know the problem is never with God or His Word. If something needs to change, it’s always us!

But the spiritual man tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things]…
1 Cor 2:15 AMPC

There are several reasons that some do not see the Blessing at the level that they desire. I hope to cover a few of them this month. The first mistake I see many Believers make is that they do not agree with what God says about them. God says they are already BLESSED, but they turn right around, and argue with it!

You must find out who you are in Christ. Find out what God says about you as a person who has been Born Again, and then receive, accept and welcome it in your heart!

If Gods Word says that you are a New Creature in Christ, don’t argue with that! Just take it, Hallelujah! Receive it like a little child and say “That’s right! That’s me! If that’s who the Word says that I am, then that’s who I am no matter what!”

If the Bible says that you are “more than a conqueror”, then stop arguing against that. Stop glorifying and magnifying defeat & failure. Don’t even talk about it. Like Paul and Silas in the prison, start praising God for the victory that you already have in Christ! You are more than an overcomer!
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
– 1 John 5:4 KJV

It takes a truly humble person to begin to agree with the Word!

So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls. – James 1:21

For God sets Himself against the proud (the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful)—[and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble. Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you…
1 Peter 5:5-6 AMPC
