3 John 1:2 AMP
Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually].
When it comes to being blessed, many of us tend to consider one aspect and that is the cheque book but that is not a complete picture. I have read of people who had lots of money and material possessions but they had no peace. In fact it was so serious because they became paranoid always believing someone was out to get them thus they lived a life of seclusion away from others holding on tightly to their wealth until they died. How is that a blessing? It sounds more like a curse.
Gods blessing is wholistic it touches the spirit soul and the body.
Gods blessing regenerates the spirit and that which was once dead and separate from him is given a new life and a new connection.
His word changes our soul, our will mind and emotions. The more we read it and apply it the more we are washed and changed as our mind is renewed day by day and this then affects his we live because as a man thinks so is he.
Proverbs 10:22 AMP
The blessing of the Lord brings [true] riches, And He adds no sorrow to it [for it comes as a blessing from God].
His blessing brings true riches the kind that has no sorrow attached to it, meaning we are blessed emotionally as well and our hearts are at peace. Because we are healed and blessed emotionally material wealth that comes our way becomes a resource that we use to be a blessing to others and to progress the work of the Lord.
We are blessed physically as well, the bible tells us that by His stripes we were healed. Provision has already been made for us to walk in divine health.
That my friend is what it means to be truly blessed and the good news is that we are carriers of that blessing because we are in Christ Jesus. May we learn to activate that blessing.
Are you blessed Spiritually? Are you born again, if not why?
Are you blessed emotionally is your mind being renewed day by day? If not, why?
Are you blessed physically and materially as well? If not why?
Remember the blessing of the Lord maketh rich and adds no sorrow to it. That the blessing you carry, activate it.
