TODAY’S DEVOTION. THE BLESSING BRINGS PROSPERITY PART 3.
TODAYS 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)
When God restored mankind and established THE BLESSING a second 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. However, the situation did not last long. Ham and Japheth soon followed in Adam’s footsteps and departed from God’s way of doing things.
Instead of obeying Him and trusting THE BLESSING to prosper them, they invented their own system of commerce. They came up with the fend for yourself, dog eat dog, lie, cheat and steal economy we see in the world today. In that system, people attempt to meet their needs without God. They try to satisfy spiritual needs with material things and call it prosperity.
They believe that to be blessed they must be rich, so they spend their lives struggling to make money. Psalm 73:12 says, “these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.”
According to Jewish history, Melchizedek became the king (or lord mayor) of Jerusalem. In Genesis 14:18, we find him serving as priest of the Most High God, ministering the covenant elements to the patriarch Abraham and transferring THE BLESSING to him.
The reason for the transfer was simple. God was still working to get THE BLESSING back on all mankind and He had declared that through Abraham, the man of faith, “all families of the earth” would again be blessed (Genesis 12:3).
Get set for your unending journey into your prosperous place via THE BLESSING. See you at the top.
