Blessings as we walk

When God is teaching me a truth it seems He whispers into the ears of everyone we listen to that we need certain information. It's exciting to know He's the one orchestrating it. Right now it is about saying blessings over everyone.

Ephesians blessing 1:3,4 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ..." vs 16-19 .."do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe."

Colossians blessing 1:9b-12 "...we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding so that you may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience, joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light."

God gives blessings throughout His word. I'm working on finding them, lifting out the words that pertain to those I want to bless and making one complete blessing I can say over my family and friends. Blessings bring power and authority as well as success, health and financial favor.

God delights in delegating His power to men when He finds believing and obedient servants who will accept the responsibility and exercise it. He wants those who when mountains rise in their way speak to them and command them to depart into the sea instead of crying to Him to fix it. When we speak to the obstacle there may seem to be no immediate response. But as day by day, we maintain the attitude of authority knowing we are commissioned to use the name of Jesus Christ and His shed blood, there will come a trembling and a shaking and a removing and the mountain will slide from its base and disappear into the sea of forgetfulness.

Jesus rebuked the storm and the wind and sea were stilled. Satan would like us to be ignorant of our position in Christ that gives us the authority and power to do the same.

I don't remember where I heard this saying but it has become one of my favorites:
"The saint is hilarious when he is crushed with difficulties because the thing is so ludicrously impossible to anyone but God."

I must say goodnight. Thanks for keeping me company on my walk. Jean
