3 Major Source of Blessings to your Life as a Christian
It is God’s desire for his people to be bless and very great, it is God’s agenda to bless the work of your hand, struggling and pain ends at redemption when you gave your Life to Christ, remember that he has paid the full price for your salvation and by that you have access to your inheritance, the system of God is such that he will meet every of your needs according to his riches in glory, but there are so many questions that flows through the heart of men as to why they are yet still struggling around and why things are not working, the way it ought to.
I will be sharing with you 3 major channels of Blessing into your life as a child of God, it is important that you know them so that you can appropriate them, remember the scripture says – My People perish for lack of knowledge – Hosea 4:6 .
So what you don’t know you can’t get, and that is why we have created this blog to equip you continually on the truth and reality of God’s word and promises for your life.
There are certain channels that God himself as design for your glorification as a child of God, and why do you need to know about this channels?
Because, untill you follow the right channel you might never get to your destination in Life.
God’s Blessing only flows through the right channels, when we choose to follow in Faith and obedience of his word.
Our Father of Faith “Abraham” experienced a covenanted order of Blessing from heaven,
So in my here list here is
- God’s (Divine Blessing) : This is God himself coming down to Bless you, there are certain things you do, not necessarily prayers alone, there are quiet a lot of things you do, that provokes God’s blessing in your direction and upon your life. Remember the Bible says – “The Blessing of the Lord maketh rich and addeth no sorrow in it” – Proverb 10 : 12. So from that scripture, we agree that there is something called the “Blessing of the Lord”, then when Jabez was praying the other day, he requested of the lord saying, Bless me, Bless me oh Lord, Bless me indeed and enlarge my Territory – 1 Chronicles 4:10. And the Lord answered his prayers, Jacob the other day, had an encounter with the lord and God so good, it was documented in the scriptures, Jacob was not a poor man right from time, but yet he understand that there is more to the blessings of God than what he has seen in his life at that time, so he decided to request of The Lord, fresh release of the blessing of God, and his name was changed to Israel – Genesis 32:26. and let me clear your wrong perception here, some Christians thing God does not want them to be bless and prosperity, but his word made this profound, in 3 John 1: 2 –Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. So God as prosperity agenda for his people, also let us check two more scriptures that prove God’s prosperity will for his people is guaranteed! Psalm 35 : 27 – 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. 2 Corinthians 8 : 9 – For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. So The Blessings of God is real, God delighting in your life and willingly choosing to bless you by himself, we also found that in Malachi 3 : 10 – Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. So God wants us to be bless, he as a blessing agenda for us, and he promises the other of blessing that there will not be room to contain, when we are found faithful in honoring the lord with our tithes and offering. by your faithful with God in stewardship, offering and tithing, been a blessing to humanity and to the kingdom of God, you are bound to provoke the blessings of God in your direction. You can not be walking with the spirit of God and you will not be blessed, the holy spirit at work in you is a major custodian of blessings and praying, Tithing is the key to unlocking the covenant of God’s prosperity agenda for you as a redeemed child of God.
- Priestly Blessing : This as to do with the vessels of God, those whom God uses to bless you and to help you feed from the Lord’s table continually as you seat at the feet of Jesus. The Pastor or Prophet of God over your is spiritually a major source of blessing to your life, the servant of God whom God use to teach and feed your spirit both on Sundays and during the week, he carries blessing that you need in the journey of life as a believer, we must have this clear understanding that you don’t disregard spiritual authority and leadership in your church, it is dangerous, because you are just about to shutdown source of your glorification, remember the bible made it clear in Hosea 12 : 13 – And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved. also in 2 Chronicles 20: 20b the bible says – Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. So your pastor/prophet is a source of Blessing to your life, and you partake of the blessing from this channel basically by service and honor, when you join the work that God as given to them to serve and make it become a reality, then you are surely going to be blessed by their God. Elisha was serving under Elijah and he end up with double of Elijah’s power. Don’t play with the spiritual parents, don’t play with your spiritual parents, believe them, serve their God and you will be a partaker of their Grace.
- Parental Blessings : This is the third channel of Blessing that God as provided for you as a Christian, and no matter how poor they are, so long that is your background parents, you didn’t choose them, God gave them to you, you are to honor them. Sometimes we look away from this channel because some parents are very poor, they are nothing to right home about, however we understand from scriptures that they hold a blessing in their hand for you and you must do all you can to ensure you are blessed of them. They are the car that transport your journey down to the earth and obtaining blessings from them basically is via “Honor” we saw that in the scriptures – Ephesians 6:1–2 – Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) . Honor them, value them, in the little or big way you can, continually be a blessing to them, materially, financially, as the lord helps you, the word of blessings that comes forth from their mouth upon you will eternally open you up to greatness in Life. In the bible days, it was obvious that parents are used to calling their children when they are about to depart and bless them, we saw this in the case of Isaac and Jacob, also we saw it in the case of Ruben, when he was cursed by his father for sleeping with his father’s wife, and the life of Ruben was scattered by the virtue of that word.
I pray the lord grant you deeper understanding in the name of Jesus Christ.
By Faith in Obedience of God’s word, you can attract the blessings of heaven in your direction, both by been faithful in Tithing, Offering and other kingdom vows and covenant practices, however do you know walking in righteousness is also a major facilitator of God’s blessings?
The bible states that clearly in Proverb 14 : 34 – Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. So walking in truth, and righteousness is a major facilitator of glory and blessings upon any individual, community and nation.
Give yourself fully and appropriate these channels of Blessings to your life and see how the Blessings of God will flow in your direction! God bless you.
