When God made covenant with Abraham He promised to bless all the families of the earth. This blessing is the very same blessing God spoke over Adam. We don’t have enough information on Adam, so we don’t know what the blessing entails. However, we see the effects of the blessing on Abraham and his descendants.
Galatians 3:9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
So, the families of the earth that God will bless are those who live by faith. Before we go any further, let’s make sure we know what faith is.
Faith is believing God’s Word despite not having any physical evidence.
In conclusion, if you live by faith God will bless you. Under the blessing God healed Sarah’s womb, Abraham became very wealthy and Isaac sowed seed during a famine and reaped a hundredfold. Under the blessing one will be fruitful, they will multiply, restore the earth, subdue it and have dominion over everything that moves. There is no question God is blessing people today because He must make good on His promise. Early on when the revelation of the blessing came, I struggled to believe God would bless me. It seemed like He was selective who He would bless and who He wouldn’t. So, how does a person position themselves to be blessed?
Romans 1:16-17 I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one who believes. For there is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, the just shall live by faith.
This is Paul’s testimony, he said the Gospel of Christ is what brought him salvation. He got the revelation that he was justified by the blood of Jesus. If the Gospel of Christ has not convinced you that you are righteous, you will struggle with the blessings. We have but two choices: either we are justified or we have a sin consciousness. When a person has a sin consciousness they never believe they are worthy of God doing anything good for them. As a catholic I was always told I was unworthy because the Roman soldier told Jesus that he was not worthy of Jesus coming to his home.
Religion is very good at giving a person a sin consciousness, this can become a stronghold in one’s life that only the truth can make them free. I thought I was free of my sin consciousness until one day I realized I didn’t have the faith in God to heal certain defects! I just couldn’t see the Lord growing out an arm or a leg when I prayed, I was lacking faith for miracles.
John 11:40 Jesus said to Martha (Jerry), did I not say that if you would believe, you would see the glory of God?
A sin consciousness is like a filter, it blocks all the things that God has promised to bless us. There is only one solution, the truth. If we don’t have enough truth, we will fall short from what God wants to do for us and with us.
I know the grace of God,
it came from His love for me.
Jesus was a wealthy man,
but the curse made Him poor so I could be increased with wealth.
Jesus is my Passover,
I eat His body and drink His blood.
I have His life within me,
a life of peace and abundance.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
