Blessed With Good Success To Be A Blessing

May 20, 2011

I think many people get the wrong idea when you mention favor from God or preaching how God prospers people.  I think many people think that it means God will give you whatever you want and make you as wealthy as you want.  Being favored and blessed by God never takes you out of His will or away from your family, friends or His church.  God knows better about what you need than what you do.  Being blessed and favored by God puts you in a position where you can bless others.  Many people who have sudden wealth or wealth in general may not be under the blessings of God because of where their heart is.

Keep in mind the bible does not say that money is the root of all evil.  It says that the love of money is the root of all evil.  Do you know that you can love money and not have any?  Do you know that you can have tons of money and not love it?  Just because you do not have money does not mean that you are not obsessed with it.  Having money does not bring evil, it is the obsession with it that brings evil.  Many people also think that the only way to be holy is to be poor.  I believe that as new covenant believers that we are the seed of Abraham and Abraham was blessed to be a blessing to all generations that followed.

We are not just talking about money since we are a fitness ministry, but how can you bless people if you are not blessed first?  How can you teach people things if you have nothing to teach them?  Wisdom is given to people from God so they can impart their Godly wisdom on others.  You cannot give wisdom to people until wisdom is first given to you.  You cannot bless people until you have first been blessed.  Finances is a part of the blessings but it is not the only blessing.  Any blessing we give people is first given to us.  Laboring, and constantly in a state of defeat is no way to be a blessing to others.  Reigning and life and living in victory is the only way to bless others.  You are blessed by God so you can be a blessing to others.

I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.   —   Genesis 12:2

God wants to bless you so that you can be a blessing!
