ACTIVATING THE BLESSING

TOPIC : ACTIVATING THE BLESSING

SCRIPTURE : Numbers 6: 24. The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! We have carefully looked at various pathways that lead to the blessing. Today we shall be considering how to activate the blessing.

A. Understand that the blessing is what God released upon creation to preserve it from decadence(Gen.1:28).
B. The blessing is transferred through spoken words(Num.6:23)
C. There are men who God has given the privilege to be dispensers of the blessing on earth. They are spiritual parents and your biological parents.

In this study, we shall look at activating the blessing through your priest/spiritual parents.

The priests are God’s vessels of dispensing His blessing to mankind. The first priest was Adam, although his ministry was limited to his family. However, it was at the time of Moses that the priesthood was properly constituted and the instructions for dispensing the blessing was passed:

Numbers 6: 23. Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, 24. The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

Today, we are new testament believers and as such some have argued that we are all priests! But they forget that our being priests is to take the incense of prayer to the Throne of Grace.

Even though we are all priests, God has still called men from amongst men and engraced them to function in a particular way, it is this function that is termed ministering!

How then do you activate the blessing?

Therefore, if we must activate the blessing, we must honour men with uncommon grace know as the priest or our spiritual parents! It is the honour we sow as a seed that determines the harvest that comes to us as blessing. Many believers have neglected this truth and have remained small! I said it at the beginning of the month, the blessing is by vision, so it takes men of vision to recognize the vessels that carry their blessings and then through honour activate it.

What is honour?

According to Merriam Webster dictionary, honour means to show appreciation, respect, or affection for (someone) with a public celebration. Honour also means to show regard, to hold someone with high esteem both in your heart and in the public.

Please note that honour begins with the heart.

The Bible said;

Jeremiah 17: 9. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 10. I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, …..

Honour begins with discernment! You must be able to identify those who deserve to be honoured in your heart, then come publicly to show you honour to that person. Please note that, if you don’t honour an individual in your heart, all the public show of accolades or respect is a waste of effort. The primary place honour begins from is your heart.

Most people honour men in the public, but dishonour them in their heart. God is not only interested in public show of honour, He is also interested in the honour in your heart (Jer. 17:9, 1Sam. 2:3)

How do we honour?

  1. With our heart
  2. With our words
  3. With our substance. It is called honorarium. Please note, God watches our hearts before any action of giving a gift or saying a word to honour someone. God weighs your action if truly you are mocking or you are honouring (1Sam.2:3).

This is why you can hang around heavy grace for years yet the grace is not profiting you, it is not blessing you. The carrier of the grace could be your class mate, it could be your junior, it could be your husband or wife, it could be your child, it could be your friend or neighbours. All you need to do is just honour grace and the vessel that carries the grace you desire, with all your heart and with your seed! Even if the person refuses to open his mouth to bless you, God will not permit you to go without a reward for your honour.

Remember this: Heaven is real, Hell is real. Your choice on earth determines where you will spent eternity.

Prayer points:

  • Father thank you for your word to me today,
  • Lord, I receive grace to honour the vessels carrying my desired blessing in Jesus name.

Prophetic Declaration :

  • I prophesy as you honour the custodian of the blessing, the blessing you need for a turn around story will be released upon you today in Jesus name.
  • May you not miss the vessels God has ordained for your lifting in life in Jesus name.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
