the blessing

How great would it be if we grew up seeing, hearing and believing that God always wants to bless us and that that blessing will turn around situations in our favour?

Sadly though our understanding of what blessing means has been watered down so much that now it’s often just  something people say when someone sneezes. But it’s so much more than that. A God kind of blessing carries substance and creative power from heaven, and when activated this type of blessing will cause us to expect good things, to believe again, and to release our faith for increase and new things. It causes us to be fully persuaded that God will do all that He promises.

It’s one thing to see the blessing work for someone else but it’s another thing to expect and believe that it will operate the same way for us. This is where our minds and hearts often need to be renewed as to what we expect because whatever we carry on the inside will cause us to believe for good or to expect disaster.

Many times I have caught myself thinking negatively or expecting something to go wrong, only to realise that my mindset and beliefs are contrary to what God wants for my life. That’s why God wants us to renew our thoughts with what He says about our lives and futures, because when we do our lives will literally be transformed as we start to expect and look out for the blessing. We in a sense begin to draw awesome things into our lives.

The bible says, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)

That’s what Jesus came to proclaim; the happy gospel; gospel meaning good news. He encapsulates the blessing. He is the Blessing. Jesus demonstrated how powerful He, “The Blessing” is when He healed the sick, raised the dead and conquered sin and death. And He is the same today as He was then.

Today, check your thoughts and mindsets. Are you expecting good things, to happen, or do you expect bad? Where does the blessing need to be activated in your life, because that’s what Jesus came to proclaim and deliver?

Turn to Him today, and activate by faith and trust in His goodness the power of the blessing to override and nullify every curse, negativity, fear and sickness in your life. Trust him to turn things around for you, to make all things work out for good and in your favour regardless of the circumstances.

Jesus has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us.” (Galatians 3:13)

 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”(Romans 8:28)

Prayer: Lord thank you for the blessing that is found in you. I reject the curse and it’s operation in my life and I expect good things to happen today as I walk in step with you. In Jesus Name Amen.
