Abraham’s Blessing

March 9

I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.  I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”  Genesis 12:2,3.   

God took Abraham from a heritage of idol worship. He found in Abraham a heart that was seeking for truth. They entered in a covenant relationship that included blessing, protection, greatness and prosperity for eternal legacy.  God’s covenant with Abraham included you. Abraham’s blessing is now rightfully yours in Christ.  “He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.”  Galatians 3:14. When you receive the Spirit of Christ, you receive His Spirit of love, power, anointing and glory. 

To maximize your great potential, you must:

1) Grow in Christ by meditating on God’s Word.

2) Respond in prompt obedience to God.

3) Take practical steps to nurture His gifts and talents within you.

4) Surround yourself with people who recognize and encourage you.  

As you take these steps, you will strengthen the foundation you need for greater opportunities. 

When you read God’s promise to Abraham read it as if He is talking to you.  God has promised you blessings, great influence, protection, defense, and great provision.  Abraham believed God and by his faith, God’s promises became his reality.  Now as you believe God the blessing of Abraham will manifest in your life.  Believe, confess, and receive.

Kingdom Declaration:

I believe and receive the blessing of Abraham in all areas of my life.
