his descendants looked forward to the promise of becoming a great
nation, receiving blessings, having a great name, being empowered to
bless others, and knowing god would curse those who cursed them. They
were also promised an eternal right to occupy a land of prosperity into
which God himself would bring them.
As born-again believers, we are partakers of all those same promises
through Jesus Christ. "For all the promises of God in him (Christ) are
yea, and in him amen, unto the glory of God by us" (2 Corinthians 1:20).
It is the nature of god to bless us and bring goodness into our lives --
"O taste and see that the lord is good!" (Psalm 34:8).
Covenant people live under an open window of God's blessing. You have a
right to live in the land of blessing and prosperity that god will lead
you to when you obey the laws of the land (Deuteronomy 28).
If you are not living under the blessings of the covenant, determine
today to be obedient to his commands and see him pour out a blessing you
will not be able to contain (Malachi 3:10).
LORD GOD, I BOW DOWN
BEFORE YOU TO WORSHIP YOU AND SERVE YOU. I SUBMIT MYSELF TOTALLY TO YOUR
WILL. I RECEIVE THE TRUTH THAT I AM BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING. AMEN.
