"Our barns will be filled with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields.... Blessed are the people of whom this is true; Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord" (Ps. 144:13,15 NIV).

When you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, you were born again and became a child of God. You were translated out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God. Your citizenship is now in Heaven, and in Christ you have become a recipient of Heaven's vast resources. As a joint-heir with Jesus Christ and an heir of God, you have become a partaker of all that God possesses. You are a blessed person!

God also made a covenant of provision and blessings for His people under the Old Covenant. Once when a Moabite king tried to entice a prophet to curse the Israelites, the prophet responded, "Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and He [God] Hath Blessed; and I cannot reverse it" (Num. 23:20).

How much more should we be walking in the irreversible blessing of God under the New Covenant, which is a new and better covenant established upon better promises (Heb. 8:6)!

To hear some Christians talk, you would think God is in the business of subtracting blessings from people instead of adding blessings unto them. But that is not what the Bible teaches.

God has already blessed us with all spiritual blessings in Heavenly places and with all things that pertain unto life and godliness (Eph. 1:3; 2 Peter 1:3). But we have our part to play too. We must cooperate with God by studying and meditating upon the Word, and by being doers of the Word in every situation of life, not just when we feel like it.

It will cost you something to walk in the abundant provision and blessings that God promises in His Word. It will take time and diligent effort to make God's Word your top priority. But it's a small price to pay in order to walk in the fullness of your inheritance in Christ.

When we come in line with God's Word and operate by His principles, we will begin to experience for ourselves the blessings of the inheritance purchased for us by Christ. We will have more than enough, because God is the God who is more than enough, and He will abundantly supply our every need!

Blessed, not cursed, are the people whose God is the Lord. The inheritance Christ purchased for us at the Cross is a blessing that cannot be reversed.
