Blessed To Bless

“I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.”

Genesis 12:2  

It is rocket science that has many in the technology community in America today eagerly awaiting for the first time in history the launching of humans into orbit by a commercial aerospace company. What isn’t rocket science is that God is a blessing God. From the very moment God reveled Himself to Abraham God made it clear that He wants to bless His people if only we would allow Him.

You might be thinking to yourself, what do I mean by, “if only we would allow Him?” God promised to bless Abraham so that Abraham could be a blessing to the entire world. That’s how and why God blesses us, so that we in turn can be a blessing to others. The most blessed people on this planet are those who seek to be the greatest blessing to others.

It’s not rocket science. Read Psalm 67:1-2 and you will better understand why. “God be merciful to us and bless us, And cause His face to shine upon us. Selah. That Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations.” The psalmist asked God to bless the nation of Israel so the people of God could make God known among the nations by being a blessing to them, thus revealing that God is a blessing God. Like I said, its not rocket science.

Do you desire to be blessed today? If so, just be a blessing to others and experience for yourself what God has promised. Make it a habit every time God blesses you, as quickly as possible bless someone else. Think of yourself like a piece of PVC pipe that carries water from the source to the sprinkler. If the pipe gets clogged, the flow gets cut off and the grass eventually dies. Don’t cut off the supply! God want’s to bless you so that you can keep the flow going and bless others revealing God to them so that God receives greater glory!  

“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”

2 Corinthians 9:6-8
