MORE THAN BLESSED
“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing…” (Genesis 12:2-3).
If you’re born again, you’re more than a blessed man or woman: you’re actually a blessing. Most of God’s people need to grasp the greater truth that they have become the blessing! Not only did God bless Abraham, He also made him a blessing: “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2).
This didn’t end with Abraham, for the Bible says “…If ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29). To be in Christ means you’re born again, thus all the blessings God endowed Abraham with are now your present-hour possession, making you a package of divine blessing. I would to God you’d realize what a blessing you are as a Christian. No matter the health condition a person may have, just touching you in faith could heal him or her. That’s because you carry something inside you: “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels…” (2 Corinthians 4:7).
The Bible says you’re the temple of the Holy Ghost (1 Corinthians 3:16); that makes you the embodiment of the fullness of the blessings of God. That’s why it’s a blessing in itself to all those who are acquainted with you; they’re blessed, just for knowing you! Living daily with this consciousness will eradicate every sense of need or lack from your life. You shouldn’t suffer or put up with sickness or live a beggarly life, for you’ve been called to inherit a blessing.
Live up to your calling. You’re full of the blessings of God. There’s no blessing in this world or in heaven that you should be asking God for, because all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21). You ought to be basking in superabundance! Others who come in contact with you should partake of the goodness of God in your life.
