As a child of God, He wants to bring you into a new dimension of His supernatural provision, where the fullness of His blessing is flowing into your life! The word dimension means “the degree to which something extends.” The extension of the degree that you and I want to rise has no height, no depth, no breadth, and no limit! How far do you want to go?
Beloved, I believe God will release into your life a blessing unlike any blessing you have ever experienced. This will be the ultimate blessing that God has for you as one of His children. You are one of God’s chosen people. Today, you are chosen of God!
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
You are a child of God. He has marked you for His blessing. The apostle Paul prayed for God to give the Ephesians the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ, and that their spiritual eyes would be opened. Paul prayed:
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,
Ephesians 1:17–20, NIV
God wants to bless you with all that He has and all that He is! The reason God wants to pour His blessing upon you is that you are His child. God does not want to hold back anything from His people. He is our heavenly Father. He delights to release anything that He has and everything that He is to us.
The word blessing has been used so often that it has become common and has lost its meaning. Many times, we say, “God bless you” without really thinking about the full significance of what we are saying. There is no power behind what we are saying because the meaning has been lost. When we refer to the blessing God wants to release in our life, what do we really mean?
The word bless in the Old Testament is translated from the Hebrew word barak. It is used over 300 times in the Old Testament. The word blessing is translated from the Hebrew word berakah, which means “to bless, to release prosperity.”
When expressed by man, a blessing was a prayer that asked for a blessing of the promise that was to come in the future. It was a prayer. With that prayer came a promise. Berakah is also used to refer to God’s blessing pronounced upon men by God’s delegated spiritual authority. The promise was this: You are now marked for the blessing of God.
God wants to bring you into a new dimension of His supernatural provision, where the fullness of His blessings will flow in your life! God wants you to have His favor. He wants to give you what rightfully belongs to you. You are a child of God!
The apostle Peter told the believers:
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
1 Peter 2:9–10, NIV
Christ has redeemed you and brought you into the blessing of the Father. You are marked by God for His blessings! By faith, you are saved and redeemed from the curse! By faith, you are a child of God! By faith, you belong to a royal seed! By faith, you enter into the holy of holies and take hold of everything you need! As a child of God, He has placed His Name upon you and marked you for His blessing!
Beloved, you cannot earn or buy God’s blessings. The key to the release of God’s blessings upon your life today is dependent upon your covenant relationship with Him. You cannot expect to live under God’s commanded blessings if you are not living in a close relationship with the Lord. You must walk in faith and obedience to Him. Through your relationship with His Son, the fullness of God’s blessing has been released upon you. Receive it!
Say this faith declaration out loud: Dear God, thank You for Your promises and blessings. I will walk in faith and obedience to You and maintain a close relationship with Your Son, Jesus. I am a child of God and receive all of the blessings You have promised me because of that. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
II Corinthians 6:18
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
