Day 14

We have been studying "the blessing" over the last week. By now, whether you feel it or not, the evidence that you are in fact "blessed" from God's point of view should be enough to convince you that it is a spiritual fact. You are blessed simply because He says you are. Jesus Christ redeemed you from the curse of sin that the blessing of Abraham would come upon you (see Galatians 3:13-14).
What did you receive when you received Abraham's blessing? For an explanation you must look at Genesis 12:1-3: "I will bless (Hebrew barak "endue with the power to be successful, prosperous, and fecund") you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless ("endue with the power to be successful, prosperous, and fecund) those who bless you...."
As you go about your day,try two things:
1. Consciously receive and confess you are blessed;"
2. Bless (endue them with the power to be successful and prosperous) someone else who has been redeemed from the curse (don't forget to start early so look for someone in your family)!
