The opening verse is very profound. It shows the power of the blessing of God. It says and God blessed them, mankind, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea. Let’s look at the elements or components of the blessings seen in Genesis 1:28. It says, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion. These 5 elements hold access to the heart of God as to the blessing. The blessing involves fruitfulness, multiplication, replenishing the earth, to subdue it and have dominion over it. The blessing makes for fruitfulness, multiplication, replenishing, subduing and dominion. The blessing is a strong force of dominion in the earth today, without which there cannot be explosive dimensions of increase. The blessing is all that man has with which he exercises dominion over the earth. When the blessing is activated, the earth yields her increase, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field. There is no substitute for the blessing; that’s all you require to fulfil your God-given mandate.
Blessings are supernatural virtues released by God to aid our operations on earth, and to bring us into the fulfillment of God’s plans and purposes without stress. When a man is blessed, the works of his hands tend unto increase and progress; he moves forward and that with ease and fluency. He cannot be resisted successfully. A blessed man always has the advantage, no matter what. Distinction is by the blessing. Success is by the blessing. The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. The blessing brings wealth, prosperity, riches and honour, longevity and vitality. The blessing eliminates sorrow through the ministry of joy. The oil of joy is of the blessing, and it eliminates sorrow, weeping and gnashing of teeth. As the seed of Abraham in Christ, you are a partaker of the blessing of God on father Abraham (Galatians 3:29). Those who are of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. You have been blessed with God’s blessing in Christ. You need to know how to turn it loose. It is good to know that you are blessed, but that’s not enough. You need to know how to press the button for a release of the blessing of God on your life.
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
In the Name of Jesus, I affirm that I am blessed in Christ Jesus. The blessing of the Lord is upon me and mine for fruitfulness, increase and productivity. I have dominion. I have the advantage of the blessing, and by it, I prosper in Jesus’ Name.
