The Lord God spoke to the children of Israel through the prophet Moses and said, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live (Deuteronomy 30:19).
In order for a believer to truly live the blessed and victorious Christian life he must first, choose to be blessed, and then appropriate or authorize God’s promise of blessing in their life on a daily basis.
When God made Adam in his likeness and image he also gave him dominion over all the earth, which means He gave man earth as his domain to rule and reign. He then blessed Adam and instructed him to be fruitful, multiply, replenish and subdue the earth. Generations had passed and then God called Abraham from the heathen land of the Ur of the Chaldees and informed him to leave his country, family and father’s house. God then stamped Abraham with the same blessing upon Adam and said “I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curse you: and in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”
What does this have to do with us? We all know the first Adam failed in his original assignment but the last Adam (Christ Jesus) didn’t. Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God and Lion of the tribe of Judah overcame satan, death, hell and the grave and gave us the right to be children of Abraham and sons and daughters of the Most High God.
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond or free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye are Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise (Galatians 3:26-29).
The same blessing and promise God gave to Adam and Abraham he has given to you and me. You and I are blessed to be a blessing! Every day appropriate that blessing upon your life sand claim your victory in every area of your life. Healing, deliverance, safety, and provision are all yours in Christ Jesus. Put the word of God in your heart and speak it out of your mouth. Build your life upon the foundation of the word of God, keep the door of unforgiveness and other works of the flesh closed to the enemy, and keep a praise of thanksgiving and adoration on your lips, for what God has spoken will come to pass.
God has given us keys to the kingdom of heaven and whatsoever you bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatsoever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Don’t just take what the enemy dishes out to you, stand on the promises of God and fight on and receive the blessed life God has for you and toward others he has paced in your pathway.
