Live Life In His Blessing

God intent was for man was to have a life with His blessing.

Life without God Can be Tough and not knowing that He is blessing us and with us can be disconcerting.

Life with God’s favor and blessing is a life that is assuring.

Story- I had signed the contract for a Hundi Elantra; when we walk out so I could take it was filthy and needed a shampoo job. The attendant at Enterprise asked “Would you mind driving different car for the same price”.

“No I don’t mind”, I told him.

I was standing outside when he drove around in a Red Chevy Camero SS. I laughed and said, “Oh great, I have to behave myself, they profile this kind of car”, as I took the keys.

This is not the kind of car I would rent: but I do admit I love driving this car.

Every now and then God will just bless you with something and you know that it was God and no one else.

 

Read Genesis 12:1-3

1 Now the Lord had said to Abram:

“Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.
2 I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”NKJV

1. How does this verse apply to us today?

2. What does walking in the blessing mean to the Christian?

Reflect on what God told Adam, Noah and now he is blessing Abraham in Genesis.

3. What is he to do with this blessing?

4. Do you realize that the blessing of God is for us today?

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed 5 is 6 the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed 7 us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. 1:4 For 8 he chose us in Christ 9 before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished 10 in his sight 11 in love. 12 NET

5. How does that manifest in real life?

1 Peter 3:8 Finally, all of you be harmonious, 13 sympathetic, affectionate, compassionate, and humble. 3:9 Do not return evil for evil or insult for insult, but instead bless 14 others 15 because you were called to inherit a blessing. NET

6. How does Abram telling lot affect your life? How can you walk in the blessing of God?

Meditate on His word

Psalm 1:1 How blessed 2 is the one 3 who does not follow 4 the advice 5 of the wicked, 6

or stand in the pathway 7 with sinners,

or sit in the assembly 8 of scoffers! 9

1:2 Instead 10 he finds pleasure in obeying the Lord’s commands; 11

he meditates on 12 his commands 13 day and night.

1:3 He is like 14 a tree planted by flowing streams; 15

it 16 yields 17 its fruit at the proper time, 18

and its leaves never fall off. 19

He succeeds in everything he attempts. 20 Net

7. Do you expect God’s blessing in your life?

Pray for God to be with you where ever you go
