The Blessing of God is a very strong force in the building of the destiny of people
The Blessing of God is a very strong foundation for the destiny of man

SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF THE BLESSING OF GOD AND THE DESTINY OF MAN:

  1. The Blessing of God laid the foundation for the destiny of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 1:28)
    The Blessing of God literally guarantees the future of man on the earth
    Anywhere the blessing is in place, the future is a guarantee
  2. The Blessing of God upon Isaac laid the foundation for his life and destiny (Gen. 25:11; 26:12-14, 16-21)
    Isaac did not depend on the wealth of his father, he laboured and saw the same results his father saw
  3. The Blessing of God on Noah and his family gave them a new beginning and a future on the earth after the flood had destroyed everything (Gen. 9:1-3)
    The Blessing of God can make a man or woman survive where others have perished
  4. The Blessing of God on the life of Jacob caused such a solid foundation on his life so that nothing he faced along his journey of destiny could strip him of the blessing of God on his life (Gen. 27:27)

HOW DOES THE BLESSING OF GOD AFFECT THE DESTINY OF MAN?

  1. The Blessing preserves the life, destiny and Divine purpose in the life of the blessed (Isa. 65:8)
    You need to be alive before you can fulfil destiny
    The blessing of God is what ensures that you are not killed before your time so that the purpose of God can be fulfilled in your life
    The blessing of God in your life is what guarantees the prosperity of Divine purpose
    The blessing of God is like a Divine insurance policy for life, destiny and Divine purpose
    When the blessing of God is on your life the devil cannot easily access you to destroy you
  2. The Blessing empowers and compels both the earth and the environment of the blessed to yield their best (Gen. 4:11-12; 30:27, 30)
    When the Blessing of God is upon you, the earth where you are standing is compelled to yield its best to you
    When the Blessing of God is upon you, the environment where you are is mandated to release its best to you
    The atmosphere of a blessed person is under the mandate of cooperation
    It is not a matter of where you are, it is a matter of what is on you
  3. The blessing connects the blessed with their God-ordained allocation and inheritance in the earth (Ps. 5:12; 68:19; Matt. 6:11; Prov. 10:22; Isa. 14:27)
    It is the blessing of God that channels to you what is rightfully yours
    The reason why what belongs to you cannot be diverted or denied is the blessing
  4. The blessing empowers the blessed to make progress, surmount obstacles and overcome resistance. (Gen. 12:1; 11:31-32; 12:5; 26:12-16)
    When you stop moving, you start dying
    When you are blessed you are wired for motion, progress, and unstoppability
    You are wired irresistible, unstoppable, and indefatigable by the blessing of God
    If God blesses you, you must go forward and keep on going
  5. The blessing fertilizes and releases the potentials of the blessed for maximum impact on earth (Gen. 1:28; 23:2; 25:1)
    When the blessing is on you everything loaded in you is downloaded to your generation
    You may not look like anything now, but there is greatness inside you!
  6. The blessing of God comes with the direction of the Lord; the blessing travels in the company of Divine direction (Gen. 12:1-3; 25:11; 26:12-23; 26:1-3)
    Those who are connected to His blessing are also connected to His direction
    God cannot bless you and leave you confused
    The Voice of the Lord travels in the company of the Blessing of the Lord
    Isaac did not rely on the wealth of his father but on the secret of his father which was the Blessing of God

WHAT ARE THE SECRETS OF THE BLESSED?

  1. Going all the way with God (Deut. 28:1)
    This refers to obedience
    You are not half-hearted with God or stopping halfway
  2. Being a blessing to both the Kingdom and others (Gen. 12:2-3; Heb. 7:8; Prov. 11:25; Isa. 55:10; Mal. 3:10)
    God cannot release to a man who cannot release
    God blesses blessers and gives givers; he waters them that water
    This watering starts with the tithing
    If you are going to be a blessing to the Kingdom and to humanity, the witch or wizard that can dry up your resources does not exist
  3. Being in Kingdom service (Ex. 23:25; Job 36:11; Isa. 1:19)
    Serve God in soul-winning, in the sanctuary, with your talents and giftings
    Serve the Lord where you are and you will be shocked at the blessing of God that will come on you
    When you work for government they pay you salary, when you work for God He pays you blessings
  4. Connecting with the blessed (Heb. 7:7; Gen. 12:3; Prov. 19:17)
    Connecting with anyone who carries the blessing will irrigate your life
    Anywhere you see the blessed, connect with them and celebrate them
