Understanding your part in the covenant and the promise – Part 2
Proverbs 10:22 – The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.
But how does the blessing make rich? The blessing is the anointing or the endowment to prosper, it is intangible and invisible but its effects are real. It is like the coat of many colours of Joseph that is on you and makes everything to work in your favour, while Joseph’s coat was visible yours is invisible. Even when the physical coat was removed by his brothers, the invisible coat was still on him and making things to work for him such that every where he found himself, the blessing pushed him to the top. In Portiphar’s house, he became the head servant because he possess wisdom to manage affairs of the house, administrative skills and his loyalty was unquestionable until he was framed up and accused wrongly. In the prison, he came on top because of these skills and in addition the gifts of dreams and interpretation of dreams. All these skills, gifts and talents are as a result of the blessing.
Galatians 3:14 – That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
If you look at the above scripture, the receiving of the promise of the spirit through faith can only be actualized after we have received the blessing. The reason you are filled with the Holy Spirit today is because the curse has been removed and you have the blessing. Having the Holy Spirit is having the power, the spirit of knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Having the Holy Spirit is having access to the mind of God. Having the Holy Spirit is having the same ability that Jesus had when he was here. He knew what to do when he was faced with financial challenge and he knew the right buttons to press to make things happen. The scripture states in 1 Corinthians 2:12 now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Since you have moved from curse to blessing, you have the spirit of God to direct and lead you into all that God has reserved for you to prosper, you have the spirit to tell you what to do and when to move. Friend, this is awesome, the bible says Ephesians 1:3 Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ. If the blessing is in the spiritual realm then we need to bring it into the physical realm and that can only be done by the spirit. So what does the blessing do? It gives room for the Spirit to rest upon you and by the Spirit you have access to heavenly treasures and riches.
