HOW TO INHERIT YOUR BLESSINGS 1

LISTEN TO AUDIO 

Rom 12:2

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

NASB

God has blessed you already if you are in Christ. Because God is spirit and in heaven, He has blessed you with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places (see Eph 1:3). This is much better than if the blessings were mere physical blessings on the earth- if there was any such blessing. The foundation of this physical realm is the spirit realm; things that are not seen are the eternal things while the things that are only seen are temporal, God does not give you temporary gifts, he does not bless us temporarily that is why His blessings are spiritual and eternal. If they are spiritual then they must have a physical manifestation because the spirit realm controls the physical.

While on this earth, we desperately need the physical manifestation of these blessing we have in such spiritual abundance. If it is true that we are blessed spiritually then we should see the physical manifestation of the blessing; how then can we physically inherit our blessing?

When you walk in the will of God then you will see the manifestation of the blessing because God’s will on the earth attracts His kingdom and power to the earth (see Matthew 6:10). The problem is that many Christians do not walk in God’s will for them. Our text shows us that In order to be able to walk in the will of God you need to have a renewed mind. Your old mind can never walk in the will of God because your old mind has been wired to walk in the will of you (which will ultimately fulfill Satan’s will because of the sinful nature). The maxims and principles of the old unregenerate mind are contrary to that of the mind of Christ which is the only kind of mind that thrives in the kingdom of God. Renewing your mind means your value system changes from that of this world to that of the kingdom, it means your absolute definition of good and bad must conform to God’s definition, it means your cares should not be the same as the cares of this world… continues tomorrow.

Go into today knowing that the way you think is the starting point of inheriting your blessings.

Prayer: thank you father for your word which renews my mind. I pray you help me study and understand your word this week, In Jesus name. Amen
