Hello everyone, in today’s Bible studies, we will discuss how to get God’s blessing on this wonderful world. Believing God is a blessing, God has blessed us with all spiritual gifts in Christ Jesus. Therefore, it takes more than that to walk in the divine blessing on this world.
To get God’s blessing on this wonderful world, we need to follow the steps God has laid for us. So let’s explore more from the Bible:
Honor your parents in the Lord
The very first blessing God lavished on us on earth is by honoring your parents. (Exodus 20:12) It applies to whether they may be good or bad.
Asking God for a blessing
God is the author of everything, including material blessings. I have seen many Christians envying other Christians because of their wealth, promotions, and the like. The question is, why do you covet in the first place? For it is God you provide everyone according to their needs. However, you need to ask God for your portion. We don’t ask; that’s why we’re lacking.
You may say I have been asking, fasting, and believing but haven’t received anything right in my life. Well, James has the answer for you. Let’s read James 4:3 together, “You ask, and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your passions.”
Our motives for asking is not in line with the will of God.
Learn how to give
Proverbs 11:25 read, “The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself.” Ask victorious Christians what they do? You would realize they all have one thing in common. They pay their tithes, give to the church, donates to charity, and always be a blessing to others. Remember, there is still a blessing in giving than to receive!
Learn how to give, and you’ll get God’s blessing on this wonderful world. To reap blessings, sow it.
God’s blessings to us: The ultimate pathway
For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees, and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.
A beautiful scripture summarizes what it means to live a life with God here on earth even in difficult times. It’s a simple formula: love + walk + keep = bless. It starts with the word love.
Love: We are to love the LORD our God. Love is a choice, but we can’t love someone very well if we don’t know them. The better we know God, the easier it is to love Him since He is outstanding in character. When we seek Him, spending time with Him, enjoying His presence, we fall more in love with Him.
Walk: We are to “walk in His ways,” not our own. His way is one that is others-centered. The world teaches us to be self-centered, but God points us toward others, so we can observe for our neighbors’ needs and do what we can to help lighten their loads.
Keep: We are to keep His commandments to love God and to love our neighbor. The more time we spend in His Word, the more we come to understand what His commandments are and what it means to love Him and our neighbor.
Bless: The result of living life God’s way is that He can then “bless you in the land.” He desires to bless our lives so that we can then be a blessing to others.
Final thought to get God’s blessing on this wonderful world
As believers, we receive God’s blessings when we learn to walk in His way and keep His word faithfully.
“LORD, we desire to live in the center of Your will all the days of our lives.” AMEN!!!
