You are blessed.

So all who put their faith in Christ share the same blessing Abraham received because of his faith. Galatians 3:9 (NLT)

By the grace of God, today's message is for you, child of God, you who struggle to believe that you are blessed, perhaps because you look at your finances and it is nothing to write home about.

You whose business/career is stagnant and you are experiencing no growth.

You whose earthly family's history has been that of struggles in almost everything and because of this generational history, you conclude your story will remain the same.

You want to believe that you are blessed but the physical evidences in your life says otherwise.

I say to you today regardless of what you see physically, if you have placed your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the scriptures says 'you are blessed'.

Yes you are!

For you share the same blessing Abraham received.
Study Genesis 17 and see the blessings God pronounced upon Abraham so you know what belongs to you.
Abraham was given everything by God, no limit was placed on his blessings.

How do I move from where I am now to these blessings you are talking about? You may ask.

The word!

How do you mean, you may ask?

I'll explain...

Simon Peter didn't catch any fish though he had laboured ALL NIGHT.
The fishes (blessing) were all there, but Peter wasn't catching them. Why?

The blessing of God is not dependent on your strength, your talent, your abilities or your family connections.
Your blessing is in the WORD and in DOING  what it says.

Let's read Luke 5:5-6

And Simon answering said unto him (Jesus), Master, we have toiled all the night and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy WORD I will let down the net.
AND WHEN THEY HAD THIS DONE, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes and their net brake.

WHEN THEY DID WHAT JESUS SAID, their story changed within minutes!!! From labouring all night and catching nothing  to net braking fishes. That's what I'm talking about!

No anointing service took place, no hands were laid on them, no long prayers were made, they simply did what Jesus asked them to do.....

Jesus said 'Let down your net' then Peter simply did what Jesus asked him to do though his human sense almost got in the way but he obeyed.

Listen to Peter.........

He said 'nevertheless AT THY WORD'

The fishes (blessings) were there all along, they only responded when the word was spoken.
Peter couldn't catch any fish (blessing) because even though he was an experienced fisherman and he tried to do it the way he was trained to do, nothing happened.

The blessings that brake nets only happens because of the WORD.

Am I saying your talents, abilities or hardwork are not useful? Of course not. If you don't work you should not eat so says the bible.
What I am saying is this: It is the blessing of God on what you do that makes you flourish and prosper than your peers.

A man may work and labour hard with nothing to show for it but if that man can have understanding of the blessing of God through the word of God concerning him, he will cease from struggles.

These blessings are activated by studying and doing the word

James 1:25 (NLT)
But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free and if you do what it says and don't forget what you heard then God WILL BLESS YOU for doing it.

One more.....
Joshua 1:8 (NLT)
Study this book of Instruction continually (the word). Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you PROSPER AND SUCCEED in all you do.

A lot of believers don't have time for the word but those who know this secret practises it and it works for them.

You should not look at your present situation and say 'but i don't feel blessed, it has nothing to do with feelings.
You can't listen to people's opinion about you and conclude you ain't blessed.

You can't look around at your circumstances and say 'I really do not look blessed'. No!
You should align your thoughts, words and actions with the word of God.

That's what Abraham did.

After God appeared to him and pronounced him blessed, he didn't feel blessed, he didn't become father of nations immediately, there was no physical evidence to back up what God said but look at what he did in Romans 4:19-20

And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb. he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God.

God has spoken concerning you and He doesn't change his mind.
He pronounced Abraham blessed and Abraham just held to that word, believed it even when all he could see was 'contrary' but he refused to waiver and he got what was promised in the end.

You are blessed in your body, the works of your hands are blessed, your seeds are blessed, your business is blessed, everything that concerns you is blessed and no one can reverse that blessing because you are united with Christ.

Start digging into the word today, agree with what it says, speak it, run with it, refuse any thing short of God's total blessings for your life, don't give in to fear or unbelief, be a doer of the word and it's only a matter of time, you too shall be called a blessing.
