i6 and said, “by Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 “blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 “In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice”.
It’s God’s desire that each and everyone of us experience blessings from all sides. When we talk about blessings, we talk about how all the forces on earth and even in heaven are compelled to favor you.

Ask yourself a simple question, ARE YOU OBEYING GOD?
- My father, my father, by your grace and mercy, every strong hold of compromise over my life, I reject in the name of Jesus.
- Oh Lord, please destroy every hindrance to my blessings in the name of Jesus.
- Oh Lord, help me to move along the path of obedience, so that I will be blessed. In Jesus name.
