…I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing (Genesis 12:2).
Often, when we hear the word “Bless,” not many understand what it means. To bless means to cause to prosper, to favour, to evoke successful outcomes. It also means to infuse with abilities.
So when you say, “God has blessed me” or when God says, “I’ll bless you,” like He said to Abraham in our opening verse, He’s saying, “I’ll cause you to prosper! I’ll favour you! I’ll evoke successful outcomes—successful results in the things that concern you—so that no matter what you do, no matter what happens to you or with you, it’ll turn out for your good.
No wonder Abraham was successful everywhere he went. He prospered exceedingly. He wasn’t successful by the standards of the world; he was far beyond them. He wasn’t successful by human abilities, but was supernaturally enabled of God to excel. He was a pacesetter in his day, because God blessed him. This is what many need in their lives today—divine blessing, and the consciousness that they’re blessed of God. It’ll rid them of the struggles.
Too many are working so hard by human standards and by their natural ability; but they need an edge—divine blessing. That divine blessing changes everything, because of the supernatural elixir, the divine element at work in you. It takes you far and beyond the limits always.
Refuse to struggle like others. You’re blessed of God, which means you have the advantage. The Bible says in Galatians 3:9, _*“So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham”*_ ; that’s you. There’s a blessing in your life that should always put you over. Trust the Holy Spirit to take you on and show you this way and life of absolute success, victory, and dominion. Hallelujah!
God has made all grace abound towards me, and I’m sufficient in His sufficiency, blessed and prosperous, fruitful in every good work. I’m the symbol, and epitome of God’s grace; His blessings are evident and manifest in my life! I magnify the Lord who, not only has blessed me but has also made me a channel of blessing. Hallelujah!
