Saved for greatness!
Welcome to another amazing week!
What you believe is what you become. The report you believe about God determines the extent of His performance in your life.
If you believe that God only cares about the forgiveness of your sins at salvation and nothing else, you are limiting His performance in your life.
Our faith determines the extent of God’s performance. If you believe that the only thing God has done for you is the redemption of your soul you may miss out on the other benefits God has for you here on earth.
Psalm 103:1-5 offers a robust example of the other benefits of salvation: “Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not all His benefits. Who forgives all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowned thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things: so that thy youth is renewed like the eagles.”
Christ has made provision for your total healing, total protection, total favour, total prosperity, etc. as you open yourself to the reality of all God has provided, you will benefit from these provisions.
The Blessing of Abraham
Galatians 3:13-14 says, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law…. that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ, that we might receive the promise of the spirit through faith.”
At salvation, we have the awesome privilege of receiving the Abrahamic blessing. This means that through the sacrifice of Christ we have a covenant inheritance according to the words God spoke to Abraham. You are entitled to the same package of blessings conferred on Abraham. You need this understanding to fully sink into your heart.
The hallmark of Abraham’s blessing is ‘Greatness’ so you are destined for greatness.
“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, get thee …. unto a land that I will show 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.” Gen 12:1-2.
Some of us are familiar with the song that talks about the blessing of Abraham belonging to us but do we really believe it? You are blessed not cursed; the blessing of Abraham will swallow every curse in your life.
There’s a seed of greatness within you, which when cultivated and properly nurtured will make you a blessing to all around you. You are not a non-entity. You are not a liability to your family, you are a blessing.
There are several examples of inventions that have transformed the world i.e the invention of cell phones, computers, automobiles and several others.
You have the capacity to develop an idea, product or a business plan that will greatly impact the world. Supernatural deposits on your inside when given proper expression will eventually translate to global impact.
In his days, Joseph interpreted dreams that led to the economic dominion of Egypt – the whole world responded to a man’s idea. What God did for Abraham, Joseph, Daniel, Nehemiah and many others, He will do much more for you. He only needs you to agree. You have the capacity to be a blessing to your world.
