“How to receive the Blessings of God”

As God begins to move in this season, you will begin to see and hear about the many blessings of God in the lives of others. God has already begun in this season to bless people with healing, while many others are dying of the same thing. You will begin to hear how God is blessing individuals with provision while others continue in want. You will begin to see many people walk in the blessings of the peace of God while all hell is breaking out in their lives. 

The word “blessing” means “God’s favor and/or protection.”  And right now, you may need God’s blessing in a certain area of your life. You may need God’s favor and/or protection in your marriage, your health, or maybe in your finances. 

You may need God’s blessings on your job, in your household, in your mindset, and thought process because the enemy has been tormenting you. But the problem is that you do not know how to obtain the blessings of God; you don’t know what to do to get God to bless you. 

You have prayed, cried out to God, worshipped, and done everything you know how to do but it seems like the blessings of God continue to pass right by you and go to the next person. 

I don’t know who I am talking to, but the Holy Spirit of God says to you today that the reason why the blessings are not coming your way is simply because you keep holding on to what you feel, what you think, and what everyone else is saying about your situation instead of holding on to what God says about that situation. 

You keep holding on to what the world says about your financial situation, instead of holding on to what God said in Deuteronomy 8:18, “But thou shalt remember the LORD thy GOD; for it is HE that giveth thee power to get wealth.” I know your bank account is saying it isn’t going to happen right now, but hold onto what God said.

When your body, or a family member’s body, is racked with pain and there seems to be no release, don’t hold on to that, hold on to what God said, “With his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).

Yes, the world, the flesh and the devil are throwing everything but the kitchen sink at you, and it appears there is nothing you can do about it, but don’t hold on to that, hold on to the fact that God said “No weapon formed against you will prosper” (Isaiah 54:17).

The thing that needs to be done in/for your life seems impossible, and the enemy of your soul continues to torment you by telling you what you can and cannot do, but don’t hold on to that. Hold on to the fact that the Word of God says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13).

What I am trying to tell you is this, if you want the blessings of God to show up in and for your life, if you want the divine favor and protection of God, then the one thing you must do to obtain those blessings is to keep the Word of God in your heart, mind, and soul. 

You say, “I want the blessings of God in my life, Pastor Erick, but how do I keep God’s Word in my heart?” It is very simple, just say what God said about the situation, even if you don’t feel like it, even if you don’t know how God is going to get it done, and even if you don’t understand it. 

Say what God said, even if it makes you look foolish and even if you look or sound crazy, because when you say what God says, His word begins to occupy your mind, and settle in your heart and in your soul. You have to remember this truth, found in 1 Samuel 16:7, “For the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

So, when God looks upon your heart and sees His word written on the tablet of your heart that releases His blessings, when the Lord looks at your thoughts and sees His word flooding your mind that releases His blessings, and when the Lord looks upon your soul and sees His words settling in your soul, that is what releases the blessing of God for your life. 

For it is written, “But He (Jesus Christ) said, Yea rather blessed are they that hear the Word of God and keep it” (Luke 11:28).

You want the blessings of God to show up in your life? You want the favor and protection of the Lord God Almighty? Then keep His word roaming through your mind, keep His word written in your heart, and let the Word of God settle in your soul by saying what God says on a daily basis. Do this and watch God bless you in ways that will blow your mind. Hold on to God’s Word today, even if you don’t feel like it, and watch God show the world that you are His and He is yours. 

Be Blessed.
