It is our belief in Christ Chapel that it is up to the Church to pray God’s will into the earth because Jesus says: “I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of heaven”. (Matthew 16:18-19). Jesus has given us the authority to release His will on earth through prayer.
“For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; with favour, You will surround him as with a shield.” Psalm 5: 12
The second thing that comes with the blessing of God is favour . The way God pour harvest into our lives is through favour. “Then Isaac sowed… the Lord favoured him with blessing …he waxed great and went forward…” Gen. 26:12(amp.) Isaac had increase, but what comes before that blessing? It is favour God gave him there, so the blessing of the Lord brings favour to your life.
Jerry Savell defines “favour” as getting the worlds best and not paying the world’s prize for it. If you are getting the world’ s best , but not paying the worlds’ price , wont you be saving money? And; if that happens to you on a regular basis, you will be standing head to toe with those in the world in financial matter. The Lord’s favour brings things your way and that is how we reap from God. When you reap like that- with the wisdom of God you keep putting it somewhere you are reaping.
Understand that this favour coming to play in your lives sometimes has to be relative to where you are at so you do not expect that the same way it comes to another person is the same way it comes to you. The way we short cut the favour of God from happening for us is because we don’t walk the way God wants us to; you are not walking in love, this is why we need to be careful. Be a person of love that just walks in the love of God.
The last thing that comes your way through the blessing of God is ‘The anointing of God’ – the anointing is the oil that makes things easier. Whenever God pours things, He pours it via the spirit and when He pours things via the spirit the anointing is there.
Isaiah 10: 27 “..his burden shall be taken away from off…the yoke shall be shall be destroyed because of the anointing” Isaiah 10 :27. The Bible also says ‘the commandments of the Lord are not grievous’ to be borne. Jesus said ‘my burden is light and my yoke is easy’.
Every work that a man does has a burden, there is burden in life but the things that makes things as if they are not burdensome from work, life and from whatever you are involved with, is the anointing and that also comes by the blessing of God.
God gives the enablement anointing is the enablement to do things so you don’t struggle or toil. It is the enablement to make things happen and your life is open to these things that comes via the blessing.
