Your Circumstances Cant Stop the Blessing
If ye be Christs, then are ye Abrahams seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Once, when there was a famine in the land, Isaac considered moving to Egypt to escape it. But the Lord appeared to him and said, Do not go down to Egypt…. Dwell temporarily in this land, and I will be with you and will favor you with blessings…and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father (Genesis 26:2-3, The Amplified Bible). Keep in mind, famines back then were just as awful as they are today. Im sure it was just like the pictures we see where the babies bellies are swollen from starvation and their arms and legs are little more than skin and bone. Yet right in the midst of it all, Isaac sowed seed in that land and received in the same year a hundred times as much as he had planted, and the Lord favored him with blessings (verse 12). I want you to know, thats what the blessing of Abraham will do. It will enable you to prosper, no matter whats happening around you. It will cause you to increase in the midst of recessions, depressions and every other kind of economic calamity the devil can dream up. If youre the seed of Abrahamand you are if you are born againyou shouldnt even worry about such things. They dont have to affect you. Youre not dependent on the economic cycles of this natural realm. Youre not dependent on what the Federal Reserve does. You are dependent on your covenant with Almighty Godand that never changes! He never alters the Word that comes out of His mouth, and He has said you are blessed! Whats more, Hes said youre a blessing! That means the company or corporation you work for will be blessed just because youre there. Well, I dont know about that, you may say. Im just a clerical worker, and the company I work for is full of heathens! So what! Genesis 41 tells us that Abrahams great-grandson Joseph started out as a slave in the ungodly nation of Egypt. But because he was the seed of Abrahamjust like you arehe ended up saving that nation from being destroyed by famine. Not only that, he became the most powerful man in the nation next to the Pharaoh himself. The entire country was blessed because of Joseph and his covenant with God. You were re-created to live above the circumstances of this worldnot in subjection to them. Stand up. Release your faith. Put the Word first place in your life. Put your name in the promises of the Bible and speak them to your circumstances. The truth is, they cant stop the blessings of Almighty God!Ezekiel 34-35; Psalm 110I am Christs, therefore I am Abrahams seed and an heir according to the promise. Galatians 3:29
