Sweat-Free life of Abundance!
1. Obedience
2. Faith and trust in Him
3. Be a Covenant sons/daughter of God

INTRODUCTION:

God is a master planner and a provider.  He has made adequate provision for our needs, just as He provided for the needs of Adam and Eve before He created them, so has He made provisions for everything we need. Jesus said your heavenly Father knows what you need, even before you begin to pray. 

Therefore what is remaining is for you to have the faith - Trust that He will fulfill His promises.  God also want to see your obedience as a indication of your faith. Obedience is important because some of the promises has commands attacked to them, which makes it difficult for you to draw down such blessings without fulfilling the instructions.

Do you need a miracle from God?

If you need a blessing or even a miracle, something only God can do for you, then one way to get what you want from God is to be His lover. If you need healing and you have the healer Jesus Christ, healing becomes easy for you to obtain.

God love people that love Him and obey His word and instructions. But, if you do not love God, but you love His blessings, you may experience frustration trying to draw down the promised blessings.

While it's not wrong to want to be blessed, the moment we chase after the blessing more that we do for God, there is going to be a problem. Paul warned those that will be rich in this world to be careful.  He says:

"But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish and harmful lusts, which drown men in ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all evil. While coveting after money, some have strayed from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." (1 Timothy 6:9-10)

Do you want to be blessed? I'm sure you do. Everybody wants to be blessed in almost every area of life: finances, health, relationships, name it. It's a good thing to be blessed. I encourage you to go for the blessing without sorrow, that is the blessing from the Almighty God.

In Deuteronomy 28: 1-2, the bible says there are conditions for receiving God’s provision and favor. It says:   “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God” 

The promises of God you desire are available if you can obey the word of God.  Even when the promise you want does not have any command attached to it, it is still very important for us to obey God's word as covenant children of God.  Also, identify what God is asking you to do and begin to do them.



Here are some of the requirements for getting blessed according to the Bible.

 1) Keep God's commandments

Love the Lord with your spirit, soul, body and with all your strength. Love your neighbour as yourself.  The love command is the most important of all commands in the bible for receiving blessing. God loves to bless those who obey Him. If you love the Lord, then you will have no problem loving your neighbours.  But if you cannot love your neighbours, then the love of the Father is not in you.  In Mathew 25, Jesus said it clearly that if you love and take care of your needy neighbours, visit them in prison, cover their nakedness etc, you are taking care of Him.  Loving your neighbour is loving God.

 2) Honor your parents

God wants us to honor our father and mother no matter how imperfect they may be. This is the first commandment with a promise attached to it, to show how important it is to God that we honour our parents.  And when we do that, God promises to prolong our days on earth Exodus 20:12

3) Asking for the benefit of self and society:

Why be jealous of other Christians when we can ask our Father God to bless us too? James tells us not to covet what others have. Instead, we are to ask God for blessings.

"You lust and do not have, so you kill. You desire to have and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have, because you do not ask." (James 4:2).  James says maybe we're asking God for the wrong reasons – maybe it's because we are jealous of others, or perhaps want to be blessed for selfish reasons. That is so wrong.

James tells us, "You ask, and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your passions." (James 4:3)

4) Be a blessing to others

The Bible teaches us the principle of sowing and reaping. Simply put, if we want to reap blessings, we sow it. Choose to be a blessing to others, and see how God blesses you so that you can continue to be a blessing.  Proverbs 11:25 tells us, "The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself."

5) Simply be in Christ

The best way to be blessed is for you to abide in the Lord.  In John 15:7 Jesus said If you abide in me, and my word abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done for you.

6) Paying your Tithe:

In Malachai 3:8-12  God challenged His sons/daughters to bring the tithe into His house and storehouses, so that there will be meat in His house and see the numerous blessings He would release upon them.  He promised to open the windows of heaven and rain blessings upon them.  He would also rebuke the devourer for their sake, so that they will not suffer loss in any area of life,

7) Trusting Him

Promotion and all good blessing comes from God and He gives it to us at His time.  Avoid trying to promote yourself or cheating your customers and business partners to profit, thinking you are smart.  Trust God for your provision, while you continue to work hard. God’s way is better than yours. Resist the desire to take matters into your own hands and instead trust Him for questions or problems you have. 

 8)  Have faith in God

In Mark 11:22-24, Jesus Christ asked us to have faith in God and also in Him (Jesus).  He says anytime we ask God for anything, it should be in faith, doubting nothing at all. When we ask in faith, believing we have received what we are asking for, it shall be done for you. 

9)  Fear Not

Fear will keep you paralyzed, unable to make Spirit-led decisions or respond in God-ordained ways. Second Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Fear is never of God.

10. Praise and Worship Him daily -  Today is a good day to start experiencing the Blessings of God. Make time to praise and worship the Lord daily.  Even if it is for 10 minutes, the moment it can be consistent and regular, your blessings cannot elude you. Put these principles into practice and you can be sure of a more fulfilling Christian life ahead of you.

Beloved, there is nothing more important for your salvation, spiritual growth and maturity than Knowing the Almighty God.  Begin today to have quality time studying the Word of God.  It is in knowing Him, that your blessing and joy, even peace of mind comes.

Friends, Jesus Christ is coming soon.  Prepare to meet your Lord and Saviour clothed with spotless garment.  

Repent of your sins, believe the word of God and accept His son Jesus as Saviour and Lord of your life. He will give you a new life, victory and eternal life. 

Will you accept Him today?

Say this Prayer: 
Lord Jesus I come to you as a sinner.
I am sorry for my sins, forgive me.
I believe you died for my sins, and was raised for my justification. 
Come into my heart be my Lord and Saviour, 
Give me the grace to serve You in truth and spirit. 
Thank You for saving my soul - I am born again!

His grace be with you all.
