Day 13

Today we are going to look at another aspect of "the blessing." Earlier we saw that the word barak (Hebrew for "bless") meant to be endued with power for different attributes, for example success,prosperity and fecundity. Fecundity means to be very productive or to be creative intellectually. It has been pointed out by others that no country needed a patent law until it received the Gospel message. There is something about having Christ that does something to your mind. You begin to walk in a power that enables you to be more than you ever thought possible. The Bible says that those in Christ have His mind (1 Corinthians 2:16). Confess that you have the "mind of Christ" today. If you make a mistake it still doesn't change the fact that you have His mind.
Do you find this hard to believe? Have you allowed what others have said or are saying to persuade you that you are inferior in some way intellectually? Well guess what; one that is intellectually perfect (the Word of God) has declared that He (Jesus) is your wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30). Now don't stop there because this is not a place of arrogance, it is a place of great humility. Verse 31 says "Therefore, as it is written: "Let those who boast boast in the Lord." Today, know that you are intellectually blessed and make sure that you give Jesus the credit (not man)!
