1 Peter 3:9
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
What should proceed from us in whatever form should be summarized to be a blessing. Giving our lives to Christ doesn’t automatically guarantee life though we are called to inherit the blessing which is Eternal Life.
Blessing isn’t what we see with our physical eyes, it is a tangible reality in the realm of the spirit. Blessings are sayings. The blessing is actually the saying that makes provisions available. “The blessings of the Lord maketh rich and addeth no sorrow to it.” We ask God for things we call blessings based on our experience or scope of thinking which is very low and failing but the blessing cultures a Life around us.
He knows we have aspirations and thoughts, he sees every heart. But we don’t know his thoughts, they are not our thoughts. He is going to bring us to his thought this season, he would put his blessing upon us because we have known his name and yet many would know his name and he would bring the matters that really matters.
Christ is the totality of what God is and this blessing has been given to us but we would not be able to make use of it without understanding the way it works. There is a way God guides our life by words and we do them even without knowing. We have to be aware of what has been said because the prophecy is Christ himself.
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
We have to hear and see before we can lay hold upon his blessing. The New Testament is that of hearing. When God made the heaven and earth, his first saying was “Let there be light!”Without light we can’t decode prophecy; the Spirit has to show them to us.
The preaching of Jesus is the laying out of God’s sayings. The Gospel is the revelation of the mystery and the explanation of the sayings of God; walking by faith and obedience brings Gods sayings to manifestation.
The message is that God is Light.
When the Gospel isn’t opened to us, we are lost. Being lost doesn’t just apply to unbelievers. We must wait and allow God to write upon us till his writings become ours. Jesus has been set as the anchor to the Life and no other man is expected to navigate anything. May we continually access help to keep on in the Gospel. Amen!
