Some people say “I am thankful but it is only in my heart.” No, you have to be expressive if you are truly thankful. It is arrogance and pride to keep God’s thanks and praise within you. Don’t act as though you kept yourself alive. Don’t act as if you protected yourself.
No man, no devil can curse what God has blessed. A man was asked to curse Jacob but it was too late. Jacob has already been blessed. Jacob was blessed before he was born. God blessed the grandparent of Jacob who is Abraham. It was a covenant blessing Jacob had.
Covenant blessing is irreversible. Covenant blessing does not die when the possessor dies. Abraham died and passed it to Isaac while Isaac passed it to Jacob.
You have been blessed before you were born. It is too late for the enemy to curse you. The day you gave your life to Jesus, you stepped into covenant blessing. The Bible says you are Abraham’s seed and you are heir to Abraham’s blessings.
The blessing is not determined by the car you drive or the house you live. It Is not the money you have in your bank account. The blessing of Abraham is Covenant. You can be rich and not be blessed. But you can’t be blessed and not end up being rich.
Not all rich people are blessed people. Onassis was one of the richest people in his days but he was frustrated and committed suicide. There are celebrities and public figures that are rich and yet live on hard drugs. When you are blessed you don’t need drugs.
Covenant blessing is more than material blessings. Though material blessing is part of it but it is not all about it.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ – Eph. 1:3
We are blessed with all spiritual blessings. We are blessed already. It’s not in the look, it is in the life. The blessing may not be visible in your look but it is in the life that is inside you. If you judge a book by its cover you will make a great mistake. You are blessed but you may not live like you’re blessed.
Being blessed is the state of living a life that is unquestionably favoured by God and man. So, when a man is blessed he is highly favoured.
And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women – Luke 1:28
