TOPIC : PATHWAYS TO THE BLESSING

SCRIPTURE :Proverbs 10: 22. The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! We established yesterday that the blessing of the Lord is a spiritual force. Today, we shall be considering the pathway to the blessing.

It is the blessing of the LORD that makes rich, not the amount of money you have in your account or the investments you have!

One attack from the devil can wipe out all your investments including the money in the bank. So what makes you rich is called THE BLESSING!

What are the pathways to the blessing of the LORD?

1. The way of salvation (Eph.1:3).Salvation confers upon you a dimension of the blessing;

Ephesians 1: 3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

For the redeemed, there is a dimension of the blessing of God they have access to that distinguishes them from the unbelievers. Being saved genuinely offers access into the blessing.

Are you saved? If no, you can be saved now! You are not safe until you are saved by grace in Christ Jesus. Give your heart to Jesus now!

However, it takes vision to access the blessing! The blessing exists in spiritual form and are given in heavenly places! It is only accessible by vision. This explains why you could be saved and still be poor because it takes understanding to convert what exists in spiritual form to physical reality and that can only happen by vision.

Beloved, have you gotten vision for life? Have you gotten vision for the year? Your blessing is tied to what you can see. This is why God asked Jeremiah “what can you see”(Jer.1:11).

2. The pathway of obedience (Deut.28:1-14): When salvation opens the door, obedience procures the blessing. Salvation releases the spirit of obedience because it takes obedience to receive and retain the blessing.

The first Adam lost the blessing on the altar of disobedience while the last Adam received it on the altar of obedience :
_Philippians 2: 8. And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death , even the death of the cross_ .

He obeyed to the point of death and that was what retrieved the stolen blessing.

There are people who are praying for the blessing, while there are those the blessing is pursuing by virtue of their obedience! The Bible said:

Deuteronomy 28: 2. And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.

Beloved, If you satisfy the condition of doing what God commands, the blessing comes on you naturally.

For instance, I will give two examples for time sake:
a. The obedience of living right

_Proverbs 14: 34. Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people._

You can’t live in sin and expect the blessing of promotion! When you live right, you enjoy God’s promotion naturally.

b. Obedience of Tithing (Malachi 3: 10). :
You will not enjoy the blessing of financial security if you fail in the payment of tithe. It is what keeps off the devourer from you. Besides, the tithe also keeps the heaven over your life open for continuous flow of the blessing.

Beloved, let’s look for God’s commandment to observe and do! It is the commandment that makes you a commander because it is only doers of the word that get blessed.

However, your vision about tithe determines to a large extent the blessing that comes through it. If you can’t see the blessing inside your obedience, it will not produce results! Catch the vision behind tithing and enjoy the blessing that follows.

Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. Don’t gamble with your eternal soul. Give your heart to Jesus today.

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today,
– Father, I receive grace to obey your word promptly in Jesus name.

Prophetic Declaration:

– I prophesy the release of the spirit of obedience upon you now in the name of Jesus
– From today, you will enjoy cheap victory
– The blessing that makes rich without adding sorrows to it receive it now in Jesus mighty name.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
