God speaks thru Moses in Deuteronomy 28: 8 and says:                                                                                                "The Lord shall command the blessing upon you in your store house and in all that you undertake.  And God will bless you in the land, which the Lord your God gives you.” 

The Bible frequently refers to “the blessing.” Blessing in the Bible means many things: vitality, health, longevity, love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and gentleness.  We find in studying this word “blessing,” it is an extremely effective word (positive) to use.  Because we are truly blest by God. God’s blessing is in us to give to others – family, friends, strangers and expecially the disenfranchise in our society. 

Recently, God has been leading me to begin each day by blessing my wife and our families through prayer and myself too.  I also bless our home, health, and those I minister too, whether it is my congregation or ones I know in this area.  When we bless someone, we are, in essence saying:            “May all of God’s good plan for you come to pass.”  I have been completely impressed by the importance of giving the blessing that I usually do so early in the morning.  I am finding that starting my day with blessing in my thoughts and words makes the day a whole lot better.                  

When we bless our enemies, we place them in God’s hands and trust that God’s best for them will be worked out in their lives, including the recognition and the repenting (seeking forgiveness) for their sins. So my friends, be aggressive in releasing the blessing each day and you will be in agreement with our Triune God, for God is certainly the One who blesses.

My friends pray this prayer with me:

Gracious God, teach me to bless others and not curse them. You have blessed us, and we want to always release your blessings to others. We want them to experience your good plan for their lives. O God, bless each thing we lay our hands on – let us be doers. And thank you God of grace for truly blessing us.

Amen (S0-Be-It) Pastor Ken
