"I will bless you and make your descendants into a great nation. You will become famous and be a blessing to others."
On several posts, I have spoken about God’s plans of prosperity and success for our lives and about how God can give you an increase in what you do and in every endeavor you'd take. And these promises are ALL true.
A lot of Bible verses can prove this point, here are some:
Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
You have caused men to ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water; But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.
And a lot more verses/promises out there that we can believe in and claim for ourselves. Indeed this is a given FACT: God’s plan for you is to give you hope and a future!
But the cycle doesn’t stop there because the same Bible that says we will be blessed SO MUCH also says this:
"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.
In Gen. 12:2, we see GOD promising to bless Abraham and to make his name great and make him into a great nation. But God didn't stop there instead continued by saying “and you will be a blessing”. In other versions, “…and be a blessing to others”. And you are Abraham’s seed.
And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Being a seed gives you two things. First, you get to have the privilege of being blessed and for being recipient of the promises spoken to Abraham. Second thing is the accountability and responsibility for you to be, like Abraham a BLESSING to others.
We can believe that we will be blessed and I am sure that it will be done as God had promised but the question we should ask ourselves is this:
“Are we willing to be channels of blessings to our friends, family and others after we've been blessed?"
God Bless you!
