Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen! How are you doing? How has your week been? Once again, we are drawing closer to the end of another week! Are there some lessons you have learnt about God this week? Through Sammie’s Daily Dose or elsewhere? Do share with some of these lessons with us! We would love to hear from you!
Today, we continue the Genesis Story with Part 153. Today’s message is to take a look at some of God’s blessings to us (His children). I am excited to know that God loves me and has blessed me immensely. I hope you are too!
In two weeks, the Genesis Story will be over! Yes! After a year, we have finished this amazing book of the Bible! We are open to your suggestions of the next book to look at! What is your favourite book of the Bible? Have we looked at it? If not, let us know; your favourite book of the Bible may be the one we pick!! Now, let us get right into the message!
There are many Christians who know that they are blessed. They have heard it severally; however, they do not know the extent to the blessing. Others, are oblivious to the fact that God has blessed us! Do you fall in one these categories! Well, today, the Holy Spirit wants to encourage to accept and believe in God’s blessings for His Children!
In Genesis 28 verse 4, Jacob was reminding his son, Joseph, of the blessing he received from God! Yes, like Joseph, we sometimes, need to be reminded of the blessings God has showered upon us! We are sometimes too focused on our situations and circumstances, that we forget the truth that keep us strong and standing firm!
Today, know and be reminded that by Faith you are a part of the spiritual Israel. You are a part of the great nation- Israel. You are great! You are strong! You are a conqueror! You are mighty! Just by those words, God told Jacob in verse (as we have seen); you are preview to this and many, many more. You are fruitful! You are successful! You are God’s children! Never forget that!
The question is, “How do I become a part of this blessing?” All you have to do is to get the word, believe it! This meditate on it and let in sink into your heart! Then it becomes a part of who you are! That is the key! Today, make a decision to be a part of this blessing! Yes, you can be a Christian and lose out on this blessing! I don’t think you would want that!
As we go through this uncertain period, rebuild your faith and take a hold of all your blessings! Let them drive you and help you! Do not focus on the things you cannot solve or handle! Set your mind and your heart on the things that are certain- that is God’s word and God’s promises over your life. They have never failed; they will not begin to fail now!
Watch and see God’s blessings spread to every aspect of your life (especially in this period!)
Remember to continue to be safe! Continue to follow the health and safety guidelines provided by your national health agencies. God’s got this! Victory is here! God bless!
The prayer below is for anyone who does not know God or maybe has been apart from God for a while. God is here to pour His favor over your life. All you have to do is call out to Him. Make that decision today!
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out!
