The Blessing

I am reading The Blessing of the Lord by Kenneth Copeland. It is an awesome book and I have learned so much. The main thing that I have learned is that it is God's will for us to live under the Blessing. God created the world to house His family. He made the garden with everything they would ever want or need. He made man to walk with Him and talk to Him and enjoy the garden.

God is still the same today as He was back then. He wants to live with us, walk with us, and to enjoy time with us. He wants to walk with us in the cool of the evening. He wants us to share what we think, want, or need with Him. How awesome is that!

The first thing He said to His new man was the Blessing, the very first thing. That must mean it is important to Him. "The Blessing is the very creative force of God. It created all that we see. We've lost the power of the word blessing, which means 'to empower.' It's God's empowerment, His power that established the universe. He put the same creative power and anointing on Adam and his wife--mankind--who were created in His image, and told the to replenish the earth, be fruitful and dominate it in love. His last work was not the creation but the Blessing of man."

God sat out to restore The Blessing after Adam gave it away. The Bible is filled with The Blessing but now God made it available to us through a covenant. God Blessed Noah and his sons. (Genesis 9:1) God started it all over again. The first thing He said was "Be fruitful and multiply."

Centuries later, when Jesus was crucified and made a curse for us (Galatians 3:13), God made a way for The Blessing of Abraham to come, not only on the natural descendants of Arbaham, but also on the gentiles. Because of Jesus' redemptive work on the cross, we also can walk in The Blessing.

You can see The Blessing at work through the whole Bible. It is what God wants for each of us. Proverbs 10:22 says, "The Blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He added no sorrow with it,"

Most of the above is taken from Kenneth Copeland's book. I recommend you all read it. It is good to know how much God loves us and wants us to prosper and be in good health. I love you all and when I say God Bless you I mean I want God to open up the window of heaven and pour out The Blessing on each and every one of you.
