Heirs Of The Abrahamic Blessings – Pastor Chris
Tuesday, July 4, 2017
…That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith (Galatians 3:14).
The Lord Jesus did all that He did so that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles, and it has. Now that you’re born again, you’ve received the promise of the Spirit; you’re now the seed of Abraham. Galatians 3:29 says, “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
You’re an heir of the Abrahamic blessing. Therefore, it makes no difference how hostile the environment in which you find yourself, you’ll always win! You’ll always come out prosperous, because you have the inherent ability to prosper. You’re graced for excellence. Christ in you is your power to condition your environment to produce the results that you want.
When the children of Israel went out of Egypt, they carried their own atmosphere. Through the desert, the presence of God was with them such that they didn’t perish in the wilderness, despite being there for forty years. Psalm 105:37 says, “He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.” Nehemiah 9:21 says, “Yea, forty years didst thou sustain them in the wilderness, so that they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not.” If this could happen for them in the Old Testament, consider what blessings we have today in Christ Jesus!
The Bible says Christ, whose we are, and by virtue of whom we’re the seed of Abraham, is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises (Hebrews 8:6). It gets even more glorious, because all these “better promises” have all been fulfilled in Christ.
What we have today is a life of transcendental blessings. You’re blessed beyond measure. Failure, sickness, disease, lack and death are not, and should never be, a part of your life. It’s impossible for you to be poor or fail, because as Abraham’s seed, you’re ordained to succeed. Fruitfulness and productivity have become your birthright.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the manifestations of your goodness and kindness in my life. As the seed of Abraham, I walk in righteousness, victory, health, and dominion today, conscious that I’m blessed to be a blessing, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
