Abraham when he was about to leave and be without lot. The Bible says of this account of him.
Genesis 24: 1
Now Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things.
In the above verse, all things means – parenting, in his ministry, in his flock, in every area of life. Most of all, in his walk with God. Joshua after crossing the river Jordan and possessing the Promised Land, now he’s an old man. He died at the age of 210. He says this in Book of Joshua.
Joshua 23: 14
“Behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed.
Not one of them has failed. God is a God who wants to bless you in every area. May this be said of you at the end of your life. Not one word of God in their lives had failed. We believe God for healing, we believe God for the best. Your experience is not the measure. The word of God is the measure.
Ephesians 1: 3
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,
If you can touch something it is less real than spiritual. You know why? It’s dying. It’s decaying. Everything you can touch and see, is not what exactly it will be. There is less hope in the physical. Invisible doesn’t mean not real. Invisible means not seen by your eyes. It’s more real, more substantial than the physical that’s visible, because God is a spirit and God brought forth the material. It wasn’t the material that brought forth the invisible spiritual. It was a spirit being brought forth the material. All your answers are in the spirit. It manifests in the physical.
Angels are forever young, they saw two of them at Jesus’ tomb when He rose from the dead. The Bible says they looked like young men. There’s no aging in Heaven. Why? Because they are forever in the spirit world. But spirit doesn’t mean it’s not real. So this word “Spiritual blessings” is from the Greek word “pneumatikos” which means things that have their origin in God. If I don’t trust God, but I’m a person who trusts my abilities, and I believe I exercise, I do exercise. But if I just exercise trusting my abilities, I may actually have a health or a fitness that is actually the origin as man. It’s fleshly, which doesn’t speak much about its future. I can exercise but my trust is in God for health, now the blessing is different. That health is “pneumatikos.”
It has its origin in God. This word “spiritual” is used for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. For example, one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is healing-Gifts of healing. How does it manifest? It manifests physically. When I point at a man and a woman, I say, “that man is blessed by God.” You cannot see it, but you can see the effects. We have the spiritual blessings. Spiritual blessing is forgiveness of sins. God is bigger than someone cheating you. You don’t have to go down to their level. Don’t hold a grudge against the person who cheated, lied, and robbed you. God will always bless you more. There is a promise you should memorize and keep in your heart. Because a lot of voices are out there and they are trying to make you think that on this teaching God wants to prosper you, God wants to give you health.
2 Corinthians 1:20
For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.
When you say “YES”, itsnot just maybe it’s for us, I do not know yet. It has to be an affirmative yes. “All the promises of God is yes. It is for us. When you say that yes and Amen, you will give glory to God. It will be through you. Those who don’t have the attitude of yes and Amen when it comes to the blessings of God, they don’t see it manifest. Even though God wants them to have it. You must tell your child or your loved one who is sick, “God wants you well.” Jesus was very firm. According to your faith be it unto you. As you have believed, so be it done unto thee. All these are Jesuswords. So your faith is important. What you believe is important.
2 Corinthians 1:17 – 19
17 Therefore, when I was planning this, did I do it lightly? Or the things I plan, do I plan according to the flesh, that with me there should be Yes, Yes, and No, No?
18 But as God is faithful, our word to you was not Yes and No.
19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me, Silvanus, and Timothy—was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes.
Does God want you and your family well? Yes! Even if there are trials, God still wants you well? Yes! We believe it is, and God gets the glory. To the glory of God through us.
