THE POWER OF GOD'S BLESSINGS
“Have faith in the LORD your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.” 2 Chronicles 20:20
This generation has lost a sense of value for blessings. So, we have gone the other way trusting in our strength, skill and energy. That’s why many are frustrated. Esau wept because his generation had an unusual value for blessings. He wept sore saying, “My father, my father, don’t you have just one blessing for me?” (Genesis 27:38).
There are too many blessing-dry lives that are struggling with strength and skill, that they are constantly trapped. Blessing is, therefore, the greatest asset of destiny.
Wherever you find greatness in the kingdom, at the root of it is imparted blessing.
Knowledge may empower you; it is blessing that will position you. Your repositioning is a function of blessings. Jacob said, “I won’t let you go until you bless me.” The angel answered and said, “What is thy name?” He said, “Jacob.” The angel said, “Now there is a change of position. Your name shall no longer be Jacob but Israel” (Genesis 32:26). Blessing was responsible for the re-positioning of Jacob into Israel.
Matthew 5:14 says, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.” Also, Proverbs 11:11 says, “By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted…” So, what builds a city into the ‘topmost’ top is the blessing. The blessing of the upright means the blessing of the ones appointed or anointed to bless. I’ll like you to know that prophets carry a covenant mandate of blessings. Prophets are God’s instruments for impacting blessing to His people.
Prophets are mother eagles; it is by them that the eaglets become eagles. You will never become an eagle by yourself; you can only be an eaglet by new birth. So, you are built by blessings! Look at Abraham the great, the symbol of supernatural blessings. He is the heaven’s symbol of blessings.
Prophets are actually commissioned to bless. You can’t stop a blessed destiny from blossoming.
What does it take therefore, to connect with prophetic blessings?
Every blessing is contacted with the heart. God searches the heart to determine what is permitted to arrive in your hand (Jeremiah 17:10). So, you need a re-positioning of your inner man to connect with every covenant blessing,
Receive them! Receive the carriers of the blessing you desire. Receive their person …He that receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward (Matthew 10:41). Receive them as the instruments through which the blessings can flow to reach you. You remember the Shunammite woman in II Kings 4:8? She received the prophet, and her closed case was re-opened. The prophet you don’t receive can never be a channel through which you can be blessed.
- Believe them! You know faith is also of the heart. It is with the heart that man believes. So, you must believe their ministry. If you see one who speaks and it comes to pass, be afraid. Why? When you mock him, you become a mockery. Believe him! “Have faith in the LORD your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.” 2 Chronicles 20:20 “And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved”. Hosea 12:13
- Honour them! Prophets are spiritual fathers both to kings and to peasants. There is no king who despises the word of a prophet and does not pay dearly for it. A son honours his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour (Malachi 1:6). Every father is entitled to the honour of his children. So, when you find your spiritual father, then you owe him honour. May your life be opened-up for the blessings that God has reserved for you here. Honour them!
- Follow them! Elisha followed Elijah until his desire was delivered to him. I followed the prophet, Kenneth Copeland for 30 years, before I had the first opportunity of sitting together one on one with him. I followed and followed until the mantle visibly and practically dropped on me.
- Obey them! These things don’t flow automatically; they flow by a covenant positioning. Obey them because they are spiritual commanders. Obey them because they bear divine command from heaven. They are principal agents of God’s blessings. Jesus Is Lord!
Because blessing is the cure for curses, every curse on your life by this prophetic blessing is averted!
Every struggle of your life is turned into miracle!
The sign you have been longing for is your portion today!
As these mantles are delivered into your hands, a duplication of the grace at work here becomes your portion!
Every spell on your life is turned around to blessings!
Every demonic oppression on your life, every sickness and disease in your body, I command it cast out in the name of Jesus!
