NOVEMBER 2018 BLESSING SUNDAY – 4TH NOVEMBER 2018
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): PROVERBS 10:22
MESSAGE TOPIC: THE POWER OF THE BLESSING
By: Dr. Paul Enenche
SERVICE OBJECTIVE: Understanding the power of the Blessing
One of the most powerful forces of the earth is the force of the Blessing. It is heavier than the force of money or of human connection (Gen. 1:28; 9:1)
The difference between a blessed person and an unblessed person is like the difference between daylight and nighttime; drastic! (1Chron. 4:9-10; 2:55)
WHAT POWER IS INSIDE THE BLESSING?
1. The Blessing is behind the making of the blessed (Prov. 10:22; Gen. 12:1; 13:2; Gen. 26:1, 12; Jer. 9:23-24)
Blessing makes people and Blessing-made people are superior to effort-made people
Blessing-made people stand out where others stand down.
1a. The Blessing processes and manufactures people from the realm of smallness to greatness, from the realm of emptiness to fullness (Prov. 10:22; Gen. 12:1; 13:2)
1b. The destiny and prosperity of Blessing-made people are independent of external circumstances (Gen. 26:1, 12; Jer. 9:23-24)
If you tie your life to a system, you die with that system; when men say they are cast down you cannot be cast down because you are tied to a system that cannot be cast down
1c. The destiny and outcome of Blessing-made people do not lie in the hands of mortal man
Anything (positive) you need to do to attain the Blessing, do it!
2. The Blessing fertilizes the mentality of the blessed (Gen. 41:39-44; Eccl. 8:1; Prov. 21:5; Gen. 26:18; 26:1, 12; Eph. 1:3; Gen. 30:37-38)
Blessed people are ‘enwisened’ the blessing
Mental fertility is a major product of the Blessing
Divine wisdom is a by-product of Divine Blessing
You cannot claim to be a New Testament Israeli and be a dullard!
DIMENSIONS OF MENTAL FERTILITY PRODUCED BY THE BLESSING:
2a. The Blessing produces productive reasoning, which is also wealth-producing reasoning (Prov. 21:5; Gen. 26:18; 26:1, 12; Eph. 1:3)
2b. The Blessing produces creative reasoning (Gen. 30:37-38)
Anyone married to tradition can never experience transformation; the way it has always been done is the enemy of the way it could ever be done.
Don’t let anybody tell you that it can’t be done!
2c. The Blessing produces strategic reasoning (solution-providing reasoning) (Gen. 41:39-44)
Strategic reasoning is the secret of dynamic existence; when you become strategic your life becomes dynamic; your life begins to flow
3. The Blessing accelerates the life and destiny of the blessed (Gen. 26:1, 12-13)
Blessed people can never be victims of stagnation
The Blessing places a man’s life on autopilot; it places people in the speed lane of life
When you are blessed, you are not permitted to be stranded; the blessing forbids ‘strandation’
HOW THE BLESSING MAKES YOUR LIFE TO ACCELERATE:
3a. The Blessing takes the limits off of life, it takes the brakes off (Gen. 26:1,12-13)
The same way that light is the answer to the night, in that same way the blessing is the cure for the curse
3b. The Blessing powers lives and destinies unto progress
The Blessing on your life is like a Blessing engine (‘blessingator’). It powers your life
3c. The Blessing dismantles oppositions and obstacles to life’s progress
4. The Blessing is a preservative for the life and destiny of the blessed (Isa. 65:8)
Blessed people can never be victims of stagnation
A blessed person is not an easily perishable entity
HOW THE BLESSING PRESERVES YOUR LIFE:
4a. The Blessing makes the blessed impregnable and indestructible (Isa. 65:8; Ps. 105:14-15; Prov. 23:7)
4b. The Blessing establishes the Divine hedge of protection around the life of the blessed (Job 1:1-10; Zech. 2:5)
4c. The Blessing imparts unbeatable strength and might on the life of the blessed making them indomitable and undefeatable (Gen. 26:16)
5. The Blessing establishes the generation of the blessed (Ps. 112:1-2)
The blessed man is great and his children can’t be small; you are not permitted to be a father of vagabonds or mother of jezebels
HOW THE BLESSING ESTABLISHES THE GENERATION OF THE BLESSED:
5a. The Blessing imparts greatness and success on the seed of the blessed (Ps. 127:3-5)
Revelation is the fuel for faith
5b. The impact of the Blessing transcends the generation of the blessed (Prov. 13:22)
Blessed people live beyond themselves
5c. The Blessing imparts durability and longevity to both the blessed and their products
God blesses people to last!
6. The Blessing is a guarantee of fulfilment for the blessed (Prov. 10:22)
It is not what happens to you or around you but what happens in you that determines your destiny
HOW THE BLESSING GUARANTEES FULFILLMENT FOR THE BLESSED:
6a. The Blessing releases a fountain of joy in the blessed (Gen. 40:6-7)
6b. The Blessing forbids the cycle of negativity and adversity
When you are blessed, people like you without provocation
6c. The Blessing facilitates the occurrence of positive events and results that guarantee fulfilment
WHAT TO DO TO ATTRACT THE BLESSING:
1. The maintenance of the lifestyle of integrity (Ps. 24:4-6; Job 1:1;20:4-5)
This is namely, financial integrity
If the Blessing of God is ever your desire, look away from what is not yours; anything that is not yours does not add anything to you
Crookedness is doorway to wretchedness
Anything God has not given to you does not add to you, it takes from you!
Iniquity is a destroyer of possibilities; crookedness is the enemy of blessedness
Until you are different from the world, you cannot make a difference in the world
If your hands are not clean, the blessing is not yours
2. The pursuit of God (Ps. 24:6; Matt. 6:33)
The place you give to God determines the place He gives to you on the earth
Come to the point where everyone, even those who hate you know that God is your number one priority
When the devil wants to deny you your garden, he tempts you with an apple
3. The lifestyle of giving and sacrifice (Mal. 3:10; Gen. 8:22; 9:1; Luke 4:38; Acts 20:35)
No major consumer can be blessed by God
Generosity is doorway to genuine prosperity
4. Existence as a Blessing (Gen. 12:2)
What you make happen for others God will make happen for you
5. Connection and submission to blessed spiritual authority (Heb. 7:7; 2 Chron. 20:20b)
When you are connected to a blessing, it is like being connected by genetics – an elephant can never give birth to an antelope
The Blessing you see around your life is as strong as the Blessing over your life
You cannot be connected to a crocodile and die like a wall gecko! – Dr Paul Enenche
Father, I come before You today to thank You for Your goodness and mercies. Today, I confirm my spiritual connection to the Blessing of this altar. I receive the grace to fulfil the demands of the Blessing, in Jesus’ Name.
