Blessed To Be A Blessing

She came up in the crowd behind Jesus and touched the edge of his cloak, and her bleeding stopped at once (Luke 8:44 GNB).

 

In Genesis 12:2, God said to Abraham, “…I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.” All the promises of God to Abraham weren’t just to Abraham, but to Abraham and his seed. Galatians 3:16 says, “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, and to seeds, as of many; but as of one, and to thy seed, which is Christ.” Notice that it says “…to Abraham and his seed”; not seeds. That seed is Christ; and as a new creation, you belong to Christ; therefore, you’re the seed of Abraham! Galatians 3:29 says, “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

Your union with Christ automatically qualified you as the real descendant of Abraham, and by extension, the heir of the Abrahamic blessings. This means that not only are you specially blessed of God, you’re also a blessing; you’re a conveyor of eternal verities! In you, shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; what a ministry. When you say to someone, “God bless you,” he or she is blessed, indeed, because you’re the distributor of God’s blessings. Anyone who associates with you, just because you belong to Jesus Christ, is sure to receive a blessing from God, because you’re a God-carrying vessel. You’re His living tabernacle.

Irrespective of what anyone may think of you, God has chosen to live in you, and has chosen you to be the dispenser of His goodness. Anyone who has a need, or is in a predicament, can have a miracle just by touching you. If only the people of the world would get to know this truth, their sufferings would be over! Someone afflicted with cancer wouldn’t have to cry or become despondent; he or she could be healed just by touching you, because you’re a God-carrier; a conveyor of His love, power, glory, virtue, compassion and grace.

Having been born again, you’re not an ordinary person; you’re a divine package of power; you carry God everywhere you go. You’re a conveyor of eternal verities.

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for making me the dispenser of your goodness! What a blessing to have the Holy Spirit reside in me in all His power and glory. Thus, to the hurting world, I am your outstretched arm; to heal, bless, and deliver. I’m full of power, even by the Spirit of the Lord, and the glory of God is released into my world through me today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
