TOPIC: HE HAS MADE YOU A BLESSING
And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice (Genesis 22:18).
In Genesis 12:2 God spoke to Abraham and said, "…I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing." You’d observe that this was entirely God’s idea. Abraham didn’t ask to be great; it was God’s dream for him.
It’s also important to note that God wanted to make Abraham great so that he (Abraham) could be a blessing.
Having been born again, you’re the seed of Abraham and that means not only are you blessed, you’re also a blessing. God wants others to benefit from your blessing. He already said to Abraham, "…in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed..." Therefore, it’s your calling to be a blessing to your world; it’s your inheritance to effect positive changes in this world! You’re in this world as an agent of change. Therefore, think of ways to positively impact the world of your time.
Many of God’s people agree that God has blessed them, but they need to catch the revelation that they’re the embodiment of a blessing! Galatians 3:29 says "…If ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise." To be in Christ means you’re born again, and as a result, all the blessings of Abraham are now your present-hour possessions. You’re a bundle of blessings!
You’re the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16); that makes you the embodiment of the fullness of the blessings of God. That’s why it’s a blessing in itself to those you meet, because you carry the blessing of the Gospel. Have this consciousness, and do something today to bless your world.
Dear Father, I thank you for making me the embodiment of divine blessing, such that everything I lay my hands upon prospers, with everyone I meet receiving an impartation of blessings. Thank you for a divine flow of your blessings in me to others, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
