TOPIC : THE BLESSING OF BEING A CHANNEL OF BLESSING
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: One way to remain permanently blessed is to remain a channel of Blessing.
The Scripture makes it clear that it is the Will of God for His children to exist in the realm of enviable Blessing. God’s Purpose for His children is for them to become channels of Blessing.
According to our anchor Scripture, God seemed to have told Abraham, “If you are ready to be a blessing, I will bless you. If you want to be a flowing river, your river will not dry”. The truth is, one way to remain permanently blessed is to remain a channel of Blessing.
Now, the question is, what are the categories of people that God wants us to be a blessing to?
1. Being a Blessing to the Kingdom.
God wants us to be a Blessing to the Kingdom. David made up his mind not to give sleep to his eyes until he became a blessing to the Kingdom of God (Psalm 132:4-5). And that decision brought him to a realm of unstoppable blessing.
2. Being a Blessing to the Poor.
In Genesis 14:14, Abraham raised other people’s children in his house. He trained and armed them. No wonder he was a blessed man.
The Lord will always deliver anyone that blesses the poor (Psalm 41:1).
3. Being a Blessing to the Family.
If your parents eat from you and bless you, no witch can curse you. If your wife and your children eat from you and bless you, no devil can reverse that blessing.
Ephesians 6:1-2 says,
Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
Obedience is different from honour. To obey your parents means to carry out their instructions, but to honour your parents means to communicate value, appreciation or to give them of your resources. It is a doorway to the Blessing.
Beloved, determine to remain a flowing river and you can never run dry of the Blessing.
REMEMBER THIS: One way to remain permanently blessed is to remain a channel of Blessing.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to become a flowing river of Your Blessing to others. Let Your Blessing not stop with me, Lord, in Jesus’ Name
