Bless And Be A Conduit Of God's Blessings To Others
Bless everybody. Even yourself. Even God. As we bless, we partake of God's sovereign power to declare good to others. Even if we are offended or hurt by others, bless instead of cursing. Blessing is a very potent force sought by all in the olden times of the Old Testament. Blessing was so treasured by the Jews that Jacob even stole the blessings of his elder brother Esau which was Esau's by birthright. Cursing is the opposite of blessing and bring untold miseries and negative consequences to those who are cursed. Balak commissioned false prophet Balaam to make a curse on Israel but God made it into a blessing even making a donkey talked to Balaam to rebuke him.
Man has the potential for good or evil by the power of the spoken word and the power of imagery in his mind. He can ordain good or bad on his fellow man. God gave this power to man when He created him to be the overseer of all of God's creation but under His supreme sovereignty. This power was diminished by the fall of man at Eden but was regained by him through the death and eventual victory of Christ on the cross.
So we pray and we bless as we partake with the power of God to ordain blessings to others. Always bless because the blessings will not only be bestowed on those you blessed but on you as well. That is how God's economy works. WE PARTAKE OF THE SAME BLESSINGS OR CURSES WE BESTOW ON OTHERS. GOD BLESS US ALL.
