Proverbs 10:22 says that the blessing of the Lord makes rich and adds no sorrow with it! So, are you blessed? Galatians 3:9 says that they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham! So, are you of faith? If you are of faith then you are blessed! God told Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3 that he was going to bless him beyond measure, and he did!
I believe there is a key to how this blessing flows, the key lies in wisdom. We have to operate in the wisdom of God. Proverbs 4:7 says that Wisdom is the principal thing: therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding... 1 Corinthians 1:30 says that Jesus has been made unto us wisdom... So the key to walking in the blessing lies in receiving the wisdom that Jesus has revealed unto us through his Word. Jesus Christ actually is the Word. John 1:1-14 says that all things were made by the Word and that the Word was God. In verse 14 we read that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us! The Word is Jesus, and now the Word is given to us through the Bible.
The Bible is full of wisdom. The blessing operates in our lives through 5 areas. Spiritual, physical, mental, social, financial. These are the areas that we operate in every day. So if we are blessed then we should be seeing increase in these 5 areas... If you do not think that increase is coming in these areas, then ask God for wisdom. It says in James 1:5-6 that if any man lack wisdom, let him ask of God.... Since Jesus has come to live in our hearts, then that means that wisdom is on the inside of us, what we must do is learn to draw it out, and the keys to doing this are found in God's Word , The Bible! I pray that you receive this message and that it becomes a stepping stone for you to begin or continue to draw on the wisdom of God!
