Living The Blessed Life: Alignment with the Blessings

Romans 4:6 AMP
And in this same way David speaks of the blessing on the one to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

Have you ever driven a car whose wheels are out out of alignment? It’s almost like it has a life of its own. You direct it in one way but pulls in another direction because it is out of alignment.
The same happens when we try to embrace and benefit from Gods blessing when we are out of alignment, we keep pulling in a totally different direction from the blessings and we end up getting frustrated.
The blessing of God flows in the life of one whom God credits righteousness a part from works. This means that it has got nothing to do with what we have done instead it about all God has done and us aligning ourselves to it.

Ephesians 2:8‭-‬9 AMP
For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God; not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation].

Aligning ourselves with the blessing is a work of faith. It is a gift from God that we access by faith by believing and embracing the complete work that Christ did on the cross. That is such good news because it means that God did all the work and we are the beneficiaries. No one can have an excuse.
In other words aligning yourself with Christ and the work he did on the cross once and for all is aligning ourselves with the blessing of God.
Remember Abraham our father of faith believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness and God blessed him.
If you live Christ and are walking in obedience to his commandments then you are a carrier of the blessing. Activate it, manifest it.

Reflective Thoughts.
Have you aligned yourself with Christ and the work he did on the cross?


How has that changed your life?

Is the blessing active and evident in your life, can the fruit be seen?
