MORE THAN A BLESSED MAN – Pastor Chris
Monday, September 3, 2018
Now the LORD had said unto Abram… And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing (Genesis 12:1-2).
God didn’t only bless Abraham, He also made him a blessing. For example, Lot was blessed of God, because he followed Abraham: “And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents. And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together” (Genesis 13:5-6). Think about that! Lot became very wealthy because of his association with Abraham.
If you’re born again, the same is true about you, because you’re the seed of Abraham: “…if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29). All the blessings God endowed Abraham with are now your possessions in Christ Jesus. You’re a package of divine blessings! Living with this consciousness will eradicate every sense of need or lack from your life.
God doesn’t want you in need; He already made all things yours (1 Corinthians 3:21). Romans 8:17 says you’re an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ. There’s nothing you don’t have, and can’t do. You should never be need-conscious. He’s brought you into a large place, a place of wealth divine. Therefore, be the blessing He destined you to be.
You’re God’s contact-point of blessings to your world. When He seeks to bless someone, He locates you; you’re His partner and channel of blessing to your world. Anybody could receive a blessing or miracle from the Lord just by their association with you.
For example, no matter the sickness someone may be suffering from, he or she could get healed just by touching you. That’s because you’re God’s house, His living tabernacle (1 Corinthians 3:16); you’re the embodiment of the fullness of the blessings of God. Hallelujah!
Precious Lord, I thank you for blessing me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I’m conscious that I’m blessed and I have all things that pertain to life and godliness. Therefore, I live a glorious life, dispensing your blessings to my world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
