"The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it." Proverbs 10: 22 (NKJV)
Bible Readings: Luke 5: 4-5, Genesis 12: 1-3, Galatians 3: 29, Genesis 24: 4, Malachi 2: 7-12, Hebrews 7: 1-7, Ephesians 6: 1-2, 1 Peter 2: 17, Genesis 18.
To succeed, you need heaven's approval. Blessing also means grace. It is that divine unmerited favour. Wise people look for blessings before doing anything. The blessing is what separates the successful from the unsuccessful. The blessings is what makes you wealthy. Whatever you want to do, seek for the blessing. Many people are not getting the blessings because they are not doing the right things.
There is a difference between blessings said from the lips and from the soul. You have to do some things to provokes the blessings. They include;
⁃ Tithe: When you know how to tithe, things will be easy for you.
⁃ Sacrificial offering: Be a sacrificial giver. If you can be a dangerous giver, you'll receive dangerously.
⁃ Kingdom offering: Anything that will advance the kingdom, be ready to do it. Be responsive to the things of God.
⁃ Kingdom assignment: Soul winning!
⁃ Honour: It is key. To live long, you must honour. If you want to go higher, you must honour people. Honour is valuing people.
⁃ Humility: Be humble!
⁃ Thanksgiving: Attitude of gratitude opens more pores of blessing.
