Mighty God, Mightily Blessed

Genesis 26:12-17

‘Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him. And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him… And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we…’

I find it strange that some people believe in a mighty God, but not in the truth that that mighty God wants his children ‘mighty upon earth” (See Psalm 112:2, KJV). You see, it’s only natural that the Almighty wanted to share his power and his wealth with his children. And it’s only supernatural that he has! Through Jesus we have been abundantly blessed, with every mighty blessing the Almighty has! God blessed you, not because he had to, but because he wanted to, and he hasn’t blessed you with a ‘buy now, pay later’, or a ‘look now, taste later, blessing. No, he has blessed you with the blessing of Abraham, a blessing you can see fully made manifest, a blessing you can enjoy in every area of your life!

Like Isaac in Genesis 26, who was abundantly blessed (I mean, he sowed and then in the very same year received a ‘hundredfold’), you are blessed – even more so as you are in unhindered Union with the Blesser himself! Isaac enjoyed the blessing of Abraham and walked in such manifest blessing that he ‘waxed great’ and even made a pagan kingdom (bare in mind that Isaac had more of a household than a nation) envy him and beg him to leave and admit that he was much mightier than they. Now, do you think that a man who received God’s blessing from the outside (as in, through a friendship covenant), has it better than you, who is ‘in Christ’? No! In Christ you are blessed, and like Isaac, but more so, you can walk in tremendous blessing! Now, there are a few differences: instead of making others fear, you become a light of attraction for the Kingdom of Papa, and instead of having a great possession of flocks, you can enjoy a more contextual material gain (unless of course you’re a farmer and would like an increase flocks and herds). But, never mind the differences, the truth remains that you can enjoy the blessing of Christ in every area of your life!

So, today know that your Papa loves you, and hasn’t given you a ‘look now, taste later’ inheritance, but the very blessing of Christ, which you can see and enjoy in the here and now! Perhaps, today allow your heavenly Daddy to encourage you in this reality – sit on his knee and co-know with him the truth that you can experience manifest Salvation, manifest prosperity!

Enjoying Spiritual Treasure

John 1:16

‘And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace’ (KJV)

Some people relish in the idea of lack; to some the concept of living in lack and ‘just getting by’ is appealing, and there are many possible reasons for this. One is the religious ego, or the power people feel they have over those who aren’t as ‘trusting’ as they are. But, in short probably the main reason is that they see poverty as a virtue, as a holy lifestyle which requires their devotion and trust. Thank God that he doesn’t see it this way! In God’s mind poverty has always been a result of the curse, and he has never willed it upon any of his children! God himself has only ever been poor in Jesus on the cross, and that was for our sake – ‘so that you through his poverty might become rich.’ (KJV)

It’s important that we know a few things concerning prosperity and poverty; one is that poverty was a result of the curse. Another is that there is nothing wrong with you if you aren’t seeing your provision made manifest just yet (you aren’t under the curse, you are free from the curse, See Gal. 3:13-14). One more is the truth that you have the very same spiritual riches and prosperity of the Trinity – indeed, ‘of his fulness’ you have received! And another is that you can see this prosperity made manifest and enjoy the provision of your Papa in every area of your life. Oh, and another is that being poor is overrated, it’s not holy or unholy, it’s just a contradiction to the truth you can experience. YOU are holy and YOU are complete, and as you enjoy your holiness and fullness you will see glorious manifestation of the provision and prosperity of your Daddy God!

Know today that whether you have, in terms of wealth, plenty or little, your spiritual bank account, your spiritual treasure chest is FULL with the innumerable riches of the Godhead! Know that you have the prosperity of the Christ! Know that you can see this made manifest! Rest today in the reality of the sufficient one within, don’t buy into the religious lie that God isn’t interested in seeing you prosper, and don’t buy into the lie that it’s better to be poor. You are already rich! In Christ you are prosperous, and as you enjoy this reality you will see this prosperity tangibly manifest and flood into every area of your life!

A Detailed Love

3 John 1:2 (KJV)

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

God’s heartbeat is family; ‘In the beginning God’ isn’t just a clever introduction to the bible, it is a declaration of God’s form of existence – family! The Hebrew word for ‘God’ is the word ‘elohiym’, and this word is plural. Some see this to be of little consequence, but to the New Testament believer it is obviously a reference to the family of the Godhead! Not only has God always existed in family (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), but he created humankind to share in this family. God’s purpose for creation was family. And, it hasn’t changed! God’s heart is family – God’s heart is you! Papa’s love for family is detailed, and as such, is full of pleasant blessings and surprises! God wants his children to know and believe his love for them and the riches and blessings that Jesus has provided!

You are the love of God’s life; you are God’s reason, his poem! Papa adores you in such a personal and intimate way. Papa God desires for all of his children to understand their place in his family, and his detailed love for them. Because of Jesus and his Finished Work you are now part of the circle of the Trinity! You are in the family! As such you have an inheritance; as such it is your birth-right to be blessed! Believe that these glorious blessings are yours. Believe that through Jesus, you have an irrevocable right to the riches of the Trinity and that you can know this inheritance, just as it is your right to know the love of your God and your identity is his family!

Daddy loves you and his heart for you is blessing. John’s salutation in 3 John echoes the heart of our loving Saviour. Daddy God says to you today; ‘Beloved, my love for you is personal and detailed. My heart for you is blessing. Go through life knowing that I am with you and because I am with you, blessings are chasing you down!’ That’s God’s heart for his children! Daddy doesn’t want us striving, begging, and pessimistic. He wants us expectant of good days, because he loves us, and his love for us is detailed!

According to His Riches

Philippians 4:19

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

‘God is El Shaddai, not El Cheapo’ – Andrew Wommack.

Haha, I love this quote. A lot of Christians rarely forget that God is the Almighty and that he is rich beyond compare, but a lot of believers do often forfeit the peace of knowing that God wants to be the Almighty in their lives and that he has shared his riches with them! God HAS shared his wealth with you, in fact he has shared his life with you (see 1 Pet. 1:4, 2 Pet. 1:4, Col. 3:4). And, he delights in showing you your inheritance (what’s been provided through the death, burial, resurrection, and accession of Jesus). It is his pleasure to reveal what’s included in your treasure chest of grace! What’s more, is that you discovering your inheritance is actually a testament to God’s grace! Hear God say to you today; “My Beloved, I so love you! I want you to relax, receive my love, and open every present that is bestowed upon you. Don’t leave one unopened!”

In the light of this good news, what circumstances are you worried about? What situation are you deeming impossible? Whatever it is you’re facing, God says, “I’ve got it! I’ve got it covered. I have personally paid the bill for whatever breakthrough you need”. So, don’t focus on your worries, or even your contradictory circumstances, focus on his over-supply that is ready to flow into every area of your life!

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19). This verse reminds us that God’s supply is rich! That God’s supply is not in accordance with our need, but in accordance to the riches of God’s grace! Focus on that today. Don’t live in demand, live in supply. Don’t live in reaction to negative emotions or circumstances, live in response to God’s love, grace, and supply!

Restful Increase

Genesis 13:2

‘And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.’ (KJV)

God desires that we, his beloved children, prosper in all things. He loves to see you enjoying good success, material wealth and health and wholeness! In-fact, he wants you blessed so much that he endured the cross, he became for you prosperity; “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.” (KJV). Jesus is salvation, Mr. Prosperity, and he gave himself so that you might share IN him! Because of Jesus you can righteously prosper in all circumstances! Because of Jesus you have already received the spiritual gift of prosperity!

God desires that his children believe and rest in the spiritual gift of prosperity and see success manifest and be mirrored in their lives. This is what happened to Abraham. Abraham received a spiritual treasure and promise (Gen. 12:2-3), which was then mirrored and manifested in his tangible, outward life. Abraham manifested many blessings; health, long-life, wealth. In-fact the bible says he was “very rich in cattle, silver, and in gold” (Gen. 13:2). Abraham wasn’t just successful spiritually. No, he received a spiritual promise which made him successful and prosperous in every area of life.

That’s what God desires for our lives! He has even given us the same spiritual empowerment and blessing he gave to Abraham; “If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:29, NIV). You can expect good days and prosperity because of what Jesus has provided for you. Put your faith in the spiritual reality, and instead of worrying, depend on the blessing!
