Mighty God, Mightily Blessed
‘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!
