TOPIC: BLESSED BY BEING A BLESSING
(SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
SCRIPTURE: 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
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The extent you are willing to be a blessing is the extent to which you will be blessed by God.
It is true that no one can be blessed by God until he is or can be a blessing to others. This is why God told Abraham, ‘I will bless you and thou shall be a blessing…’ (Genesis 12:2). When you make up your mind to live as a blessing to others, especially to the less privileged, then you trigger the release of the Blessing of God upon your life (Psalm 41:1-3). This is another activation key to the blessing; it is the willingness to be a channel of blessing to other people.
God blesses us to the extent in which we agree to be a blessing to others. The extent you are willing to be a blessing is the extent to which you will be blessed by God. This entails being a blessing to the Kingdom of God and to humanity especially the less privileged. When your life is flowing like a river reaching out to the poor, the kingdom, family members, etc., it cannot dry.
In Psalm 132:1-5, we see how David decided to be a blessing to the Kingdom of God and that decision brought him to a realm of irrecoverable blessing (1 Chronicles 21:1-3).
Beloved, it is a new day for you. The Blessing of God is coming on you as you make yourself a blessing to others, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: The extent you are willing to be a blessing is the extent to which you will be blessed by God.
1. Look around you, locate someone who is less privileged or an orphan and be a blessing to the person.
2. Be involved in Kingdom projects.
