BLESSED BY GOD

8th Oct 2023

Scripture Reading: GENESIS 26: 1-14

Focus

“Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;” (Genesis 26: 3)

In our Focal Scripture, God proclaimed that He would bless Isaac. To bless is to empower one to prosper. So God proclaimed that He would empower Isaac to prosper. God proclaimed that He would give Isaac the enablement to make progress. This was a season of famine in the land, and God responded by putting a blessing upon Isaac. Notice also that by this blessing, Isaac received a huge harvest despite the famine.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: the blessing is upon you. God is releasing upon you the empowerment to advance against all odds. God is causing you to make progress despite the roadblocks that may be on your way. God is empowering you to rise to levels that you have never attained before. God is empowering you to break the limits you could not break in time past. God is empowering you to enter new realms of higher results.

Isaac was blessed to the extent that even Philistines envied him. Isaac was blessed to the extent that people who didn’t know and worship God, envied him. Hear me as I hear the Lord: the blessings of the Lord upon you is about to make you the envy of many. The blessings of the Lord upon you will cause men to desire to be like you. The blessings of the Lord upon you will cause men to seek to know and worship your God.

When God proclaimed a blessing on Abraham, He decreed that anyone who blesses Abraham is blessed, and anyone who curses him is cursed. By reason of the blessings of God upon you, anyone who blesses you is blessed; and everyone who dares to curse you or make satanic enchantments against you, is cursed. No power of hell will tamper with the blessings of God on your life. No famine will swallow your blessings.

The blessing is upon you, and there will be no room for negativity. The blessing is upon you, and you will prosper beyond limits.

Declaration

I am blessed beyond a curse; I advance like Isaac, in Jesus’ name!
