I have been wondering what I could write about on this weeks topic.

I thought when did God first bless?

The answer is God Blessed the human race in the begining.

God has always wanted man to enjoying happiness

pleasure, contentment and good fortune.

This is the first blessing God did and it has been recorded in the Word.

Genesis 1:22

And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

Genesis 2:23

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Genesis 5:2

Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

Genesis 9:1

And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

Genesis 12

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

If you want to be blessed by God just make him the center of your life.

Let your life revolve around God.

You can bless God.

God is blessed when we praise Him.
Thanking Him for the many, many blessings He has given to us.

Very fitting Norma, the last submission, speaking about Gods' first blessings. (And I thought I was going to be last, I forgot about the west coast)(:
