You’re A Blessing
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ
(Ephesians 1:3).

The mentality the Lord expects us to have isn’t
that of those in need of blessings but that of a
people blessed beyond measure, to be a blessing. Our
opening verse says He’s blessed us with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ (Ephesians 1:3),
not just so we can enjoy and keep the blessings to
ourselves, but so we’ll be a blessing to our world.
In Genesis 12:3, God said, “And I will bless them
that bless thee....” Part of your heritage as the seed of
Abraham is that through you, the nations of the earth
shall be blessed.
Take Joseph for an example: The Lord blessed him
so much that he became the envy of all his brothers.
When his brothers sold him as a slave, he became the
manager of his master’s (Potiphar’s) estate.
The Bible specifically records that from the time
Potiphar made Joseph the overseer of his house, and
of all that he had, the Lord blessed him and his entire
household for Joseph’s sake; the blessing of the Lord
was upon all that Potiphar had in his house and in the
field (Genesis 39:5). Such an amazing reality!
When Joseph was unjustly sent to prison, due
to false accusations from his master’s wife, he soon
became the head of the prisoners because he was
always quick to help others. Furthermore, through his
wisdom, the whole Egyptian empire was preserved
from severe famine.
As a blessed person, it doesn’t matter what job
you do: your prosperity is assured. Even your work is
an avenue to bless others. Ephesians 4:28 shows us
the reason for work. It says, “Let him that stole steal
no more: but rather let him labour, working with his
hands the thing which is good, that he may have to
give to him that needeth.” He wants you to work, get
a job, not so you can make a living or make ends meet,
but so you can be a blessing to others as well.
Your job is your opportunity to express the
excellence God has deposited within you. There’s so
much within you that the world can benefit from. That’s
why you must be the best of you, and bless the world
with the investment of your personality. Find a need,
and reach out to meet it.
My life is for the glory of God. His blessings are evident and working
in and through me, and I’m a dispenser of the same. Thank you
Father, for the increased ability to positively impact my world as
I live gloriously for you, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
