(1 Timothy 6:9 – NIV) Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
I know you want to be blessed. Everybody wants to be blessed in almost every area of life: finance, health, relationships, etc. It is a good thing to be blessed. While it is not wrong to be blessed, many chase after the blessing more than God. Many people want to be blessed by God, but they do not want to surrender their lives to God. If you want to attract the blessings of God, you have to be born again.
To be born again is to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and accept Him as your Lord and Saviour. It is to believe that He is the One Whom God sent from heaven to die for the sins of the world. When you believe in Jesus, you have been enlisted as a child of God, which entitles you to the blessings of God. The blessings of God s specially prepared by God for those who worship and serve Him through fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ. Below are more kingdom principles to attracting the blessing of God in one’s life:
- Giving: Giving is another way to attracting God’s blessings. The Bible teaches the principle of sowing and reaping. If we want to reap blessings, we sow it (Galatians 6:7). Choose to be a blessing to others, and see how God blesses you so that you can continue to be a blessing. You should not wait until you have the whole world before you can give and do not allow your present condition to determine your giving, such mindset rather withholds God’s blessing from a man. Wherever sacrifices are made, there God meets us and blesses us. Give out something today and you will attract God’s blessing to yourself. Be a blessing to others.
- Faith: Another way to attracting the blessings of God is to have faith in God. Faith is obeying the Word of God and believing you can get some particular thing from God without losing hope in God. Faith is absolute trust in God and total confidence that God will do it. To receive blessing from God and for God to use you to bless others, you must have faith in God, just as Abraham did. Abraham had faith in God and when God saw Abraham’s faith, God bless him in return for his faith in Him.
Child of God, God blesses a cheerful giver and lavishes His blessing on those who have faith in Him.
