By Pastor Mattew Kassim
"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper." - Psalms 1: 1-3 (NJKV)

There are two distinct ideas about blessing; it is a public declaring of a favour startled with God and an endowed power for prosperity and success.
The physical/ material things you have or posses are not blessings but are by products of blessings. Even if you are suffering now, it doesn't mean you are not blessed.
Blessing is a word that you speak to someone. When God blesses you, he is empowering you to be able to do what your natural self cannot do and you receive provision as an extension of grace. Blessings can be divided into five categories which are; general blessings, individual blessings, blessings from physical parents, blessings from your spiritual parents and blessings of the Lord.
God will take you from where you are not fruitful and he will plant you where you will be fruitful. God expects us to bare fruits in due season. As a blessed man, it is wrong to dwell on one stream of income. When God plants you, you have no choice but to bring forth fruits. If you can only focus on God, when your time comes, you will bare fruits.You are unique on your own. When your action is tailored to God, your prosperity is sure.
There is a difference between work and labour. Work is the will of God. It is when you function according to the will of God. Labour is not the will of God. It is an exploitation to enrich a system. In order for you to multiply, he broke the limitation that will stop the blessings from coming. Because you don't have knowledge or understanding of what you are going through that is why you entertain the things that don't glorify God. God doesn't bless a man empty. Everyone is loaded! The reason why you are not working on those ideas is because you don't know.
