DAY 12 THURSDAY: NOVEMBER 2020

YOU ARE A BLESSING TO YOUR GENERATION!

Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and your shall be a blessing” (Genesis 12:1-2).

God is interested in you and your welfare; He wants to make you a blessing to your generation in life. This was the covenant that God made with Abraham and it is yours in Christ Jesus. It is high time, you see yourself the way God is seeing you in life. You are a blessing to your generation and nothing can stop you from being a blessing in life. God created you in His image and likeness; He mandated you to be fruitful, subdue and dominate the earth in life (Genesis 1:27-28). Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to be a blessing to his generation in life. A life that is indeed blessed is absolutely a life that will bring glory to God in life forever.

Joseph is another case study of a man who was a blessing to his generation in life. Just imagine what the world would have been without Joseph in his lifetime in life. He was sold by his brothers into Egypt as a slave; he did not bother because he knew who he was and the God he served in life. Indeed, from slavery he became a prisoner; yet, remained a blessing to his generation in life. From prison, he became a Prime Minister of Egypt. Therefore, whenever a Christian learns to put his trust in the Lord and remains focused, he definitely receives the grace to be a blessing to his generation in life. A life lives in honor to God and in obedience to His Word is of course a life that is absolutely blessed in life forever.

However, whatever business, profession and occupation you find yourself; be diligent, faithful to God and give your tithes and offering in life. As you remain faithful to God, He will surely prosper and make you a blessing to your generation in life. Nothing in life will ever make you to fail as long as you put your trust in God. God has called and empowered you to prosper so that you will be a blessing to those in need around you in life. In fact, everyone in Christ Jesus is indeed called to be a blessing to his generation in life. Therefore, a life that is blessed is absolutely a life that is lived to the glory and honor of God in life forever.

Daily Tip: As a Christian, you are indeed a blessing to your generation in life; therefore, fulfilled your destiny in Christ Jesus forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
