Topic: The Word of God – The Blessing Container [Seeds of Destiny 1 July 2019 Devotional]
SCRIPTURE: And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 16:17
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To despise the Word of God is to despise the blessing of God.
The Word of God is a mine of unsearchable treasure. The Word is pregnant with many benefits for the children of God. One of such benefits is the Blessing of God.
Events at creation confirm that the Word of God is the container of the blessing of God; God’s Word is the depot of the Blessing of God.
Let me give you an example: when God created Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, the Bible said, God blessed them and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it… (Genesis 1:28). It was the Word of God that blessed Adam and Eve; only by His Word spoken upon them, the Blessing also came upon them. This implies that if God wants to bless a person, nation or generation, there is nothing He is going to do beyond speaking the Word. God does nothing outside His Word. So, to despise the Word of God is to despise the Blessing of God.
To further illustrate this fact, in Matthew 16:13-18, Peter got an accurate revelation of Jesus Christ, who is also the Word, and by that revelation, a blessing was pronounced on him. So, the revelation of the Word triggers the release of the blessing.
Beloved, to be in possession of the Word of God is to be in possession of the blessing of God; to despise or lack the Word is to be vulnerable to the curses of life. God’s Word is the cure for the curses of life and the guarantee of the Blessing of God.
Remember this: To despise the Word of God is to despise the blessing of God.
