Divine Blessing by Patrice Tsague

“Now the Lord had said to Abram:  Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you.  I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make you a blessing.” ~ Genesis 12:1-2

How would you like to conduct your business knowing that you have been granted favor by the almighty God Himself? The creator of the universe came to you privately and assured you that not only will your business thrive but that you will help others to thrive as well.  How will this impact your attitude towards the economy?  How will this impact how you see the difficult moments of business?  Will you approach things differently than the way you currently approach them?

That was the case for Abraham, a business man who received a vision from God which led him to forsake the false religion of his father who worshiped many gods and embrace the one true God.  He went from being a worldly business man to being a kingdom business man.  Even though Abraham lied about his wife, was impatient with God (which led to the birth of Ishmael) and suffered through famine in the land, God’s promises to him still came to pass.  However, God’s promises to Abraham depended upon his obedience and not upon his perfection. Abraham was divinely blessed by God.  If you are a born-again believer and operate a kingdom business, you can walk with confidence and assurance of guaranteed victory because like Abraham you have been divinely blessed.

Divine blessing is walking in the favor of God. It is a release of power, protection and grace from heaven to enable you to accomplish your earthly assignment.  Unfortunately, many of us walk in unbelief even though we have been blessed by the Father.  We confess the right things with our mouth but our inner thoughts deny the very words we confess.  We wonder why our circumstances are not better if we indeed have been blessed by the Father.  We assume that being blessed means being trouble-free and perfect – we rationalize that since we are not trouble-free and perfect we therefore cannot be blessed.

Being blessed does not mean a trouble-free life, but it means freedom in the midst of trouble, peace in the midst of trials and faith in the midst of disappointments.  Walking in divine blessing gives you an internal assurance that no matter your circumstances you will be victorious. The battle has already been won in the spiritual realm and all you’re waiting for is its manifestation in the natural.  The key, however, to the manifestation is belief. This belief must come from a heart and mind that is cleansed of all negative thoughts. It must be like purified water running through the faucet and sweeping all the dirty water away until nothing but clean water comes out.

How do you walk in divine blessing?

  • Be convicted of the Lordship of Jesus Christ in your life
  • Be clear of His divine instructions for you
  • Walk in unconditional obedience to those instructions
  • Maintain an active and consistent prayer life
  • Walk in righteousness
  • Guard your heart with all diligence
  • Confess and act on the Word of God no matter the circumstances

Walking in divine blessing is not what you do, it is who you are.  It is a state of mind and has nothing to do with how perfect you are but everything to do with putting your complete trust in the perfect One.  Do not let the devil use your mistakes and shortcomings to intimidate you but rather trust that in spite of your mistakes and shortcomings your God is able to fulfill His promises in your life because His word will not return to Him void.
