The blessing of Abraham

 

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 12:1-3

God promised Abram (later named Abraham) that He would bless him and make his name great. This was a promise to Abraham and his seed. You may be thinking: “Good for Abraham, but what does that have to do with me?”It has everything to do with you! As a born again Christian, you are the seed of Abraham and therefore share in his inheritance.

That means that everything God promised Abraham belongs to you also.God’s desire is for your name to be great. He does this by putting His grace on it. To have your name graced means that your name carries favour with it and opens doors. Wherever you go, the favour of God prospers your way.

It means that people will go out of their way to do good to you and bless you. Whether it’s at school, work or home, you’ll witness the blessing of Abraham on your life. But there is a condition attached to this promise even to Abraham and the condition is this:

“I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.” (Genesis 17:1)

The implication is obvious. God expects us to live in such a way that His “face” (Person, Character, Presence) is always “before” us so that our “walk” (lifestyle, behavior) is “perfect” (complete, whole, healthy), with nothing inhibiting the relationship  with Him

Prayer for Today: Through the Blood of Jesus Christ, I have entered into the blessings of Abraham in whom God bless with all things. Galatians 3:16

  1. As I recall the Swift Boat attacks, they were being proper inside their general accusations. Kerry experienced significantly embellished his record, in some scenarios he even lied. Some thing about getting in or near Cambodia at a particular point, for example… nSo, yeah, the OPSEC video/campaign springs from distinctive motives, but let’s be extremely careful how we discuss the Swift Boat campaign (1st by not using the pejorative “attacks”, Mr. Tobin). Individuals men (not all of them Republicans) did the nation a great service by revealing what a blowhard and fraud the Democratic nominee was. Immediately after all, at Kerry’s nomination he was celebrated for a well-loved warrior. Like a great deal of about his pre-presidential operate image, which was bunk. nThe lesson Ms. Cutter really should have uncovered was that individuals will not appreciate staying performed for simpletons. In its place, she took away the standard liberal impression whenever men and women like her are caught within their personal web namely, that liberals are constantly the victims of indicate conservatives.

  2. Fred, great things. Right here it can be with all the bark on….”there take that democrats and liberals” will be the impression conservatives will make about the region. Wrong? Color should really not be described as a component in choosing a VP and Drudge is drumming up controversy with his postings…..we must recognize which the media does that . Appear for that actual real truth and respect the great factors his column does. Its a slippery slope but it surely is usually navigated. One of the things all us media folks are guilty of is striving to receive audience. When you could exist without having that it will be of great service and reflect the actual second amendment intentions. possess a good day charlie
