Do you know that you are blessed?
There are believers who are blessed and know it AND
There are believers who are blessed and don’t know it!
Which one are you?
What is the blessing of God? Is it more ‘stuff’ or material wealth? Is it having complete peace and joy?
The blessing of the Lord is His divine spoken favor over you in every area of your life.
When we take the blessings of the Lord found in His word and mix it with faith it will produce abundance, overflow in our lives.
Once you are blessed by the Lord, NO ONE and NOTHING can stop this blessing or reverse it – except you by not receiving by faith.
“Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.” Num. 23:20
The many blessings of the Lord can be found in His promises throughout scripture. In the article, I will focus on the blessings found in Deuteronomy 28:1-13.
Deuteronomy 28:1-2 states the condition to receiving the blessings of God which is obedience to God – “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God.”
As believers, we can freely access these blessings because Jesus was fully obedient, and we are now in Him.
“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
On the cross, Jesus not only died for our sins, but He also became a curse for us so that we may receive the blessing of God.
Galatians 3:13 says, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.”
