Thursday, September 03You Have Inherited The Blessing of Abraham
Hebrews 6:17; Romans 8:17
Galatians 3:29 "And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."
The man in Christ is a possessor of the blessing of Abraham. In Genesis 12:1-2, God promised to bless Abraham if he comes out of his country and his kindred to a place that He would show him, that He would bless him and make him a blessing and make his name great, and bless them that bless him and curse him that curses him; and extend the blessing through him to the ends of the world. This blessing that God promised to place on Abraham if he obeys Him was the same blessing that Adam disconnected from through disobedience in the garden of Eden. Genesis 1: 28 says God blessed man and said, "Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it and have dominion". It is the blessing of increase by the hand of God, not the struggles of man. It is the blessing that comes by faith in God and in His eternal Word. Adam disobeyed God through unbelief, but Abraham obeyed God through faith.
Our opening Scripture talks about every believer in Christ being the seed of Abraham and heirs according to the promise. All who have reposed confidence in Jesus and His finished works on the Cross have come into this blessing of increase and prosperity. 2 Corinthians 5:17 speaks of the believer being in Christ and being a new creature through faith in Jesus Christ. This is what it takes to be Abraham's seed and a heir according to God's promise and blessing to Abraham.
Beloved, just as Abraham believed God and he inherited the blessing so has everyone who has reposed faith in Christ, Abraham's seed, inherited the blessing of increase and righteousness through faith in Him. Now, keep walking by faith and absolute trust in Jesus Christ and as you act on the Word of His grace to you the blessing of increase and prosperity will keep flowing ceaselessly in your life.

My Solid Front (Confession)
In Jesus Name, I declare that I am an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ Jesus. I make bold to say I have received in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham, and that by grace and God's unmerited favour I increase beyond measure in Jesus Name. Amen.
