Topic: Blessed [Sunday, 26th March 2017]
And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people: for they are blessed. Numbers 22:12
The beautiful thing about your life is that it is beautifully and wonderfully endowed with the blessings of God. Even if you have not recognised that you are blessed, it doesn’t change the fact that you are blessed. And hear this, no amount of curses can change or hinder your blessings. Even though you are not yet experiencing the evidence of the blessing, you are still blessed.
In Numbers 22:11, Balak perceived and saw this great blessedness in God’s chosen people, Israel. He saw how the Israelites have been triumphing against all the nations that came up against them in warfare. He knew it could only be the blessings of the Lord, that have propelled them past their adversaries. So, He contracted Balaam, a prophet, to put a curse against the Israelites. But Balaam told him “listen, I received a command to bless; God has blessed, and I cannot reverse it” (Numbers 23:20).
We have great adversaries, the devil and his demons, who would never give up, just like Balak. Balak later got the Israelites to sin and they were duly punished for it. But now, all the punishment for our sins has been laid on Jesus. And even when we sin, which might make us not to have the confidence to exercise of faith to help us experience the blessings God has blessed us with, it doesn’t change the fact that you are blessed. Learn to live in and experience the blessings which is already in you as a citizen of the kingdom.
Keep winning daily.
