Talked Into Your Blessing

The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. Deuteronomy 28:8 (NKJV)

Do you ever talk yourself out of being blessed? What you repeatedly say about yourself influences you.  If you say, “I’m just not good with people,” you’ll stop expecting to develop rewarding relationships. If there’s distance in your marriage and you’re always saying, “We’re just too different,” you’ll stop working at closeness.

Negative words such as, “I’m just not smart enough,” “I’ll never get ahead,” or “I’m just not good with money,” will cause you to talk yourself out of the blessings Jesus died to gain for you.

Meanwhile, it’s not your lack of ability or opportunity that is limiting you from experiencing what God has promised you. God didn’t say it was your brain, your looks or anything else in you that would qualify you to be blessed. God has commanded His blessings upon you. They come from Him.

Now, if you’re not experiencing God’s best in an area of your life, don’t feel condemned about it. We’re all on a journey in this life. All I’m saying is that we all need to expect to have God’s blessings and promises in our lives to experience them.

Resist the temptation to look for reasons why you don’t yet have what God has promised you. It’s not because of where you live, the language you speak or the colour of your skin. The problems you have and the people that surround you don’t determine what you can have, and neither do past mistakes or wrongs you’ve suffered.

Everything is possible with God…so speak positively. Expect great things!
