TODAY’S DEVOTION. THE BLESSING BRINGS PROSPERITY PART 2.
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE. “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply and replenish the earth,and subdue it:and have dominion …” (Genesis 1:28 KJV)
God released all the divine resources man would ever need to expand the Garden of Eden until it filled the whole earth. Through THE BLESSING, God equipped mankind completely that on the seventh day of creation, He did not even show up for work. Instead, “he rested” (Genesis 2:2). God rested not necessarily because He was tired, He was through. He had done all He needed to do. He did not have to stay on the job, blessing His new family’s every endeavour. He sat back to enjoy their fellowship, watch them exercise their dominion and let THE BLESSING do what it was designed to do.
God did not rest for long because Adam messed up the plan. He succumbed to the devil and turned THE BLESSING into a curse. As a result God had to come up with a redemption plan. He took on the task of getting THE BLESSING back to mankind, which is where it always belonged. All His children are BLESSED. That was God’s will from the beginning and His will never changes.
After the flood when mankind got a fresh start through the family of Noah, we find God once again releasing THE BLESSING upon them by saying the same thing He said in the Garden of Eden, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth” (Genesis 9:1).
At that time, Noah’s sons Shem, Ham and Japheth represented all the races and nations that would ever inhabit the earth. All of us are descendents of those three men. Once again, all of mankind was BLESSED.
Help me Lord Jesus to live in total obedience to your Word in order to continually enjoy the blessing that brings prosperity. Amen.
