And God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth – Genesis 1:28I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you, I will curse. Through you every family on earth will be blessed." - Gen 12:3That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is on the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed my voice - Genesis 22:17-18Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangs on a tree: that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith - Galatians 3:13-14

Word of the LORD:
After God created Man, He blessed him saying, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth" (Gen 1:28). Man was really blessed. Now think about this: God first created everything man would ever need and then created man and put him in charge of everything. For Psalm 8:6 says, “You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet”. Isn’t it amazing? Man was so blessed. He had everything he would ever need at his disposal. He was in charge of Eden (Genesis 2:15). There was no struggle, pain, strife or curse or anything like that in his life. Man lived a blessed life until the day he sinned. Because of the sin, God got angry and punished them. Adam and Eve were driven out of the garden and man began to live below the blessed life that God originally intended him to live. Man lost the blessing of the Lord upon his life until Christ came. Beloved, are you living in sin? Sin could rob you of the blessing if you allow it to be your master. Look at what happened to Adam and his wife. If you want to be blessed and want to retain the blessing of God, you must be obedient to God and must continue to walk with Him in Christ Jesus. After Adam sinned, there were some other people that got blessed by God as a result of their obedience and sacrifices to God. Abel was blessed. Enoch was blessed. Noah and his sons were blessed (see Genesis 9:1,7). Job was blessed. Abraham was blessed. Isaac was Blessed. Jacob was blessed. Joseph was blessed. David was blessed. Solomon was blessed. Daniel was also blessed etc. If you read through the bible, you will see that God had a relationship with every one of them. He made a covenant with each of them. Now, speaking of covenants, God made a covenant with Abraham and decided that he was going to bless every family on earth through him. God swore that he would bless all the peoples of the earth and that includes you (Genesis 22:16-18). It may interest you to know that our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ came from that lineage. God said to Abraham in Genesis 22:18, "And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed ..." Beloved, that seed is Jesus Christ. God the father knew from the beginning of time and from when Adam fell into sin, that one day, he would send a Second (and last) Adam who would come in the person of Jesus Christ and that through his death, he would restore the blessing to Mankind. So that through Him, every family on earth including the gentile would be blessed (Galatians 3:13-14). Beloved, it is true. Jesus is the way and only way for all the nations of the earth to be truly blessed. Have you opened the door of your home to Jesus so He could be a blessing to your family? I admonish you to do so now if you are yet to, so you can experience the blessing. If you are already in Christ, my prayer is that you experience the fullness of the blessing of God in Christ Jesus and be richly blessed in every ramification in Jesus name.Now, you got to do one more thing apart from believing God’s promises. You got to declare them. Psalm 81:10b says, “….open your mouth wide, and I will fill it”. And Numbers 14:28 also says, “Say to them, As truly as I live, said the LORD, as you have spoken in my ears, so will I do to you”. So you got to open your mouth and decree and declare the blessings. Glory be to God.
Now confess this blessing with a believing heart:
I and my family are richly blessed in Christ Jesus. In Him and Through Him, We have all things because all things belong to Him. We have access to the fullness of God's blessings, God’s glory and God’s grace. Therefore We shall not want. We shall not suffer lack because Jesus has paid the full price for me and has made all things available to us. Everyday He loads us with benefits. We are breaking forth on every side and experiencing breakthroughs in all ramifications. We are bearing fruits and We are fruitful in all ways. We are blessed in the morning, blessed in the day and blessed in the evening. Blessed is our going out and my coming in. Now and always in Jesus name. Thank You, JESUS. Glory ! Hallelujah!! Amen!!!
If you have just said that prayer, believe all you have said because you will soon start seeing the manifestation in your life and in your family. And so shall it be in Jesus name. Have a grace filled and blessed year.Prayer: Father GOD, I ask for the full manifestation of your blessing in my life and in my household. I pray with thanksgiving in Jesus name.
