The Blessing

Deuteronomy 28: 2 – 14

2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you will obey the Lord your God. 
3Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.
4Blessed shall be the offspring of your body and the produce of your ground and the offspring of your beasts, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock.
5Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
6Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
7The Lord will cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they shall come out against you one way and shall flee before you seven ways.
8The Lord will command the blessing upon you in your barns and in all that you put your hand to, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you.
9The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, as He swore to you, if you will keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and walk in His ways.
10So all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of you.
11And the Lord will make you abound in prosperity, in the offspring of your body and in the produce of your ground in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you.
12The Lord will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
13And the Lord shall make you the head and not the tail, and you only shall be above, and you shall not be underneath, if you will listen to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully,
14 And do not turn aside from any of the words which I command you today, to the right or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

You need to know the blessing. This is your heritage and your birthright. This represents part of your covenant rights with the Father. These verses are what Jesus went to the cross to purchase for you. This is the message of the cross. We were lost. We were estranged from our Father. When we had no way back to the Father, Jesus became the way. Father God wanted us in unity with Him. He wanted us to be blessed. He created all this earth in order to bless us, but we lost our way. So, compelled by His deep love for us, He sent His only son that we all might be reconciled to Him.

We, the church, have become the downtrodden and abased. But Jesus, our Lord, went to the cross in order to put us back in right standing with our Father. He took on the curse and became the curse so that we could again walk in the righteousness with which God adorned us at the beginning of the age. We must now reclaim that heritage and our rights and no longer be the oppressed but rather live as the kids of the King. We must accept our rightful place and step into it. You are the child of the Most High. What more do you need? You are a princess, a prince of the greatest kingdom ever to be. Stand your ground as an heir to the promise and no longer see yourself as a slave nor let anyone convince you of your lowly station in life. The King of all put His son on the cross so that you can stand in the blessing created for you. Celebrate who you are in Him.
