How Does God Bless Us (3 Ways)
How does the Lord bless us?
There are so many ways God blesses us.
Blessed people, bless people.
The Lord wants to bless us so we can continue to be a blessing unto others.
We have to thank God for blessing us from things SEEN & UNSEEN.
The Lord may bless us without us even knowing it.
Here are 3 main ways God blesses us with a few scriptures to share through each experience.
#1 God Bless us directly through Him.
God blessed the Israelites in the wilderness with bread from heaven.
Just when they needed it the most, the Lord allowed a blessing to come from heaven to also test them.
Blessings come in many forms & ways.
In this case the Lord allowed a test to take place.
He tests our heart, our mind & our faith in Him.
4 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you. And the people shall go out and gather a certain quota every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in My law or not. (Exodus 16:4)
#2 God blesses us through our own hands.
When we move & operate under the power of the Holy Spirit.
God can move in mighty ways through our very own labor, through our own hands!
2 The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. 3 And his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made all he did to prosper in his hand. 4 So Joseph found favor in his sight, and served him. Then he made him overseer of his house, and all that he had he put under his authority. 5 So it was, from the time that he had made him overseer of his house and all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord was on all that he had in the house and in the field. 6 Thus he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand, and he did not know what he had except for the bread which he ate. (Genesis 39:2-6)
God blessed Joseph no matter WHAT season he was in or what he was going through.
Even being a slave to Potipher the Lord still blessed Joseph's hands.
Not only was Joseph blessing those with his very own hands, but also the household he served in became blessed!
#3 God blesses us through other people.
We become blessed so God can help us bless others.
Blessed people really do bless people.
6 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” 7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. 8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God. (Acts 3:6-9)
Peter was used to heal this lamed man.
As the Lord calls us to ministry, He will allow us to be used to bless others.
This man received a blessing from God in a form of healing that was Peter was used as a vessel in Jesus name!
Again, there are so many ways that God blesses us.
We can pray & ask the Lord to continue to allow us to see these blessings.
& we might not see every blessing, but we can always give praise, honor & glory to God no matter what!
