 Receive The Blessings And Promises Of God

God has already blessed you, he has already spoken blessings concerning your life. But, you don't see them until you line your words up with them. Blessings and curses come out of your mouth (James 3:10). So whatever blessings of God you are not seeing is because you are not saying. Old Testament people knew the power of speaking blessings. Blessings are words that speak good of something. Everytime God blessed He did so saying (Gen. 1). Jacob deceived his own father to have him speak blessings over him. And God blessed him just as his father said.

God has already given you all things that pertain to life and godliness and all spiritual blessings. But, you receive them by lining your words up with his. Take the children of Isreal for instance, God told them He had given them the land but, they said differently. When the 12 spies came back from spying out the land 10 brought back an evil report of unbelief. They said there are giants in the land and we are not able to take it. But, 2 of the 12 spies said that they were well able let's go up at once and take it. The whole congregation agreed with the 10 spies and that whole generation failed to enter the Promised Land. Everyone 20 years of age and older failed to enter the Promised Land. The 2 spies that said we are well able and the younger generation received the Promised Land.

God promised Abram a son with his wife. After years had passed God spoke and told him He was changing his name to Abraham (which means father of many nations). God got Abraham to call himself father of many nations. Notice God got his mouth to line up with the promise. And when his mouth got lined up with the promise Abraham received the promised child. Get your words lined up with God's word. God has done his part now it's up to you to receive the promises and blessings of God.
