FEBRUARY 2023 BLESSING SUNDAY SERVICE – SUNDAY 5TH FEBRUARY 2023
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): MATTHEW 6:33
- Understanding the Blessing of Dedication
- Understanding the dimensions of the Blessing of dedication
- Understanding the way to the Blessing of dedication
The Bible makes it clear that addition follows dedication
The things that are valuable and profitable in life are added to the life of the dedicated
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF THE DEDICATED AND THE THINGS ADDED TO THEM:
- Abraham – Abraham’s dedication to God set him apart from his family and ushered him into the realm of wealth and resources (Gen. 12:1-3; 13:2; 24:1,35)
- The Levites – Dedication to God separated the Levites unto God for service, distinguished them among the tribes of Israel and caused God to become their possession (Ex. 32:26; Num. 18:21; Deut. 10:8-9)
There is no limit to what God can give a man that is dedicated to Him.
How far you want to go with God determines how far God will go with you
Don’t waste your time pursuing the mundane things of this life; waste your time pursuing God and He will give you Himself, and you will become a mystery to people
- Job – Dedication to God made Job the greatest and wealthiest man in his generation (Job 1:1-3, 10)
Job was a man with a notorious God-identity
- Solomon – Dedication to God made Solomon to be the wealthiest and most outstanding king, not just of his time but of all times (1 Kings 3:3-4; 10:23-25)
If the Bible was to be written again, what would they write that you love?
What do you love? What causes the energy of your life to rise? It determines what God can do with your life
- King Uzziah – Dedication to God made King Uzziah to connect popularity, authority, and prosperity in his generation (2 Chron. 26:4-5,9-15, 16-23).
Don’t let any devil tell you that you are wasting your time pursuing God
For as long as you won’t forget the God of your making, you cannot forfeit your making in life.
When you become too big for God, you become too small to remain up; a crash is inevitable
DIMENSIONS OF THE BLESSING OF DEDICATION:
- Provision/Prosperity (Matt. 6:33)
THE WAY OF THE DEDICATION THAT PROVOKES THE BLESSING:

- A public stand for God (Ex. 32:26)
- Committed service to God (Deut. 10:8)
- The reverential fear of God (Job 1:1; Prov. 8:13)
- Affection and passion for God (1 Kings 3:3a)
- Giving and sacrificial living (1 Kings 3:4-5; Matt. 6:21)
- The consistent pursuit of God (2 Chron. 26:5, 16)
Father, thank You for Your Word to me; I receive this Word with thanksgiving, Lord in Jesus Name.

Father, we ask that judgment will begin to answer on the head of every evil man, woman, or politician who has a plan to derail the purpose of God in this season; Father, let the judgment arise and land on their heads, Lord in Jesus Name – Ezra 7:26
