And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice (Genesis 22:18).
In Genesis 12:2 God spoke to Abraham and said, “… I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing….” Observe that this was entirely God’s idea. Abraham didn’t ask to be great; it was God’s dream for him. It’s also important to note the reason God wanted to make Abraham great; it was so he (Abraham) could be a blessing.
Being born again, you’re the seed of Abraham, and God wants to bless the world through you. He wants the whole world to benefit from your existence. He said to Abraham, “…in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.” It’s your destiny to be a blessing to your world; it’s your calling. You’re in this world as an agent of positive change. Therefore, it’s your responsibility to think of ways to improve the world of your time and beyond.
Understand that it’s God’s dream for you to be a blessing; it’s what He expects of you. He’s interested in your success, and His dream is for you to heap success upon success. If you’re successful today, then He can count on you to attain higher levels of success. The Lord Jesus said in John 15:2, “Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.” If you’re productive, the Lord will increase the grace on your life, so you can become even more productive. So, go out today and do something to bless your world; be a success for the Lord.
Dear Father, I thank you for Your Word, which builds me up and fills my heart with divine treasures that I may bring forth fruits unto righteousness. I yield my heart to your Spirit, who causes me to be productive and effective in every good work, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
