Biblical truths about God’s blessings
- God blesses those who are faithful.
(Prov 28:20) A faithful man will abound with blessings.
God loves us unconditionally and His blessings are for everyone who believes in Him. With faithfulness we gain favor with God. When we are faithful, we will be filled with God’s blessings in more ways than we can imagine.
Joseph a faithful servant of God faced many difficulties and trials. He was sold as a slave while carrying out his father's orders (Gen. 37:13-29). He was thrown into prison because he was faithful to his master, Potiphar (Gen. 39:1-20). Joseph was always faithful to God, and in due time God honored and exalted him as the ruler of Egypt.
Faithfulness cause God to release more authority and influence to us because He knows we would do the right thing.
- God will bless our lives if we obey Him.
God gave Abraham a command. The command was “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you” (Genesis 12:1).
God promises to bless Abraham in exchange for his obedience, God continued: “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Genesis 12 :2-3).
After Abraham showed that he was willing to sacrifice his only son God repeated again the great blessing. We see in Genesis 22:18 and “through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.”
Deuteronomy 28:1-3 "If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands………… You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country".
God’s promises and his blessings are conditional. Obeying God in small matters is an essential step in receiving God’s greatest blessings
- God blesses us to bless others.
Blessings flow from God, but they should never stop with us. God generously blesses us so that we can bless others.
2 kings’ chapter 7 tells a story of four lepers who sat at the gate of Samaria at a time when the city was under siege. When they went over to the enemy camp, they were stunned to find the camp deserted. The Lord had caused the enemy to hear the sound of a great army of chariots and horses so that they fled in fear, leaving all of their provisions behind. The four beggars ate all that they could eat. They hid several loads of silver and gold and clothes.
But then their consciences began to trouble at them. They said, “We’re not doing right. This is a day of good news, but we are keeping silent” (2 Kings 7:9). So, they went and told the starving city where they could find abundant supplies to satisfy their needs.
In Acts 20:35, we are told that it is more blessed to give than to receive.
" And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8)
Because God has promised to bless us abundantly, we should be a blessing to others.
