“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26-28 KJV
When God created man in the beginning, He blessed the man, He did not curse him, and so you are blessed. You are a blessed man, your seed is blessed. The works of your hand are blessed. God has commanded you to be blessed, to be fruitful, and to replenish the earth- not to be dominated by the devil, by sin, sickness, disease, lack or poverty. You are redeemed.
It is faith in the word of God that makes the word work for you. And “…faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17. As you have faith in the word of God, faith in the name of Jesus, faith in the blood of Jesus; you can also have faith in the blessing.
You need to find out what the blessing will enable you to do. “The blessing of the Lord maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it” Prov. 10:22.
The blessing of the Lord is the covenant of God that overrides the curse. The curse is out there in the world; sins, sickness, disease, poverty, war, earthquake comes as a result of Adam’s transgression. The blessing is the anointing of God through which divine favour flow.
“And he came to Nazareth…and stood up for to read…And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me…” Luke 4:16-18
Jesus said “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me”, the power is the blessing, and within the blessing is the power to produce.
When God blessed man, He blessed them to be exact duplicate of Himself- a reproduction of God .When God said “Be fruitful” He was passing a power; He was commanding them to be blessed. To be fruitful; to multiply; to replenish and to be in dominion.
