Topic: Blessed for a Purpose
Genesis 12:1-3; Job 29:12-17
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created, blessed and anointed. We have established in the past two days that God definitely created and anointed you for a purpose. Today we will study how God blesses you for a purpose.
You are blessed to be a blessing to others. God touches your life to touch other lives. Others must benefit from the grace of God on your life. God blessed Abraham to be a blessing to all the families of the earth. God’s blessings on him was not only for him and his immediate family. It transcended many generations (Genesis 12:2-3). Job declared that the blessings of the Lord upon his life enabled him to give life to the poor, weak and needy (Job 29:12-17).
One is not truly blessed until one’s blessings impact other people’s lives. Blessings that last are those that make positive impact on others. Blessings which feed the selfishness of those who have them leave the rest of the world to suffer.
1. Pray that God will bless you and the work of your hands enough for you to be a blessing to others.
2. Pray also God will show you the right way to use His blessings upon your life to enhance His work.
