Topic: Blessed And Preserved
You cannot be a focus of Divine investment and still be a victim of enemy devastation.
SCRIPTURE: Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord. His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies. Psalm 112:1,7,8.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot be a focus of Divine investment and still be a victim of enemy devastation.
It has been established that the Blessing of God is a multi-faceted endowment. The Blessing combines many good things. Let me give you an example: the Blessing of God combines Divine provision with Divine preservation. To be blessed by God is to be preserved by God. To be blessed is to be made by God (Proverbs 10:22).
Now, you cannot be made by God and be unmade by the devil. You cannot be a focus of Divine investment and still be a victim of enemy devastation. Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that the blessed man that fears the Lord cannot be afraid of evil. The Blessing of God is a preserver.
Now, how does the blessing of God preserve?
Take a look at these four points:
1 The blessing positions the blessed in the place of dominion (Genesis 1:28).
When a person is blessed, he is not only empowered to be wealthy but also positioned in the place of dominion.
2 The blessing establishes the terror of God around the life of the blessed (Genesis 9:1-2, Genesis 35:5).
The terror of God is around the life of the blessed.
3 The blessing establishes the hedge of Divine protection around the blessed (Job 1:10).
There is a hedge of Divine protection called the blessing hedge on the blessed. It is an impenetrable hedge around the blessed. This hedge was on the life of Job.
4 The blessing establishes the rebuke of the Lord against the enemy over the life of the blessed (Genesis 31:24).
When the enemy comes against the blessed person, there is a rebuke hanging and waiting for him (Isaiah 65:8).
Beloved, I decree the blessing of the Lord upon your life in Jesus Name. I decree that you are preserved from every negative force of darkness, in Jesus Name.
REMEMBER THIS: You cannot be a focus of Divine investment and still be a victim of enemy devastation.
Go through the study again.
Determine to be faithful in your covenant practices in order to connect the Blessing of God.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the impartation of Your Blessing on my life. Surround me with Your terror against my enemy Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
