To the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham. —Romans 4:16
Abraham and his descendants looked forward to the promise of becoming a great nation, receiving blessings, having a great name, being empowered to bless others, and knowing God would curse those who cursed them. They were also promised an eternal right to occupy a land of prosperity into which God Himself would bring them.
As born-again believers, we are partakers of all those same promises through Jesus Christ. "For all the promises of God in him [Christ] are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" (2 Corinthians 1:20). It is the nature of God to bless us and bring goodness into our lives—"O taste and see that the Lord is good!" (Psalm 34:8).
Covenant people live under an open window of God's blessing. You have a right to live in the land of blessing and prosperity that God will lead you to when you obey the laws of the land (Deuteronomy 28).
If you are not living under the blessings of the covenant, determine today to be obedient to His commands and see Him pour out a blessing you will not be able to contain (Malachi 3:10).
Lord God, I bow down before You to worship you
and serve You. I submit myself totally to Your will.
I receive the truth that I am blessed
to be a blessing. Amen.
