Pastors Tony & Kathy recently wrapped up a series titled “The Father’s Blessing,” which we were challenged to accept a blessing from God the Father, and so to speak that blessing over our own friends and family.
Below is the blessing which was spoken over the congregation on July 10, 2011:
The Father’s Blessing
My child, I love you!
You are special. You are a gift from God. I bless you with the healing of all
wounds of rejection, neglect and any abuse that you have suffered. I bless you
with overflowing peace, the peace that only the Prince of Peace can give a
peace beyond comprehension. I bless you with success. I bless you with health
and strength of body, soul and spirit. I bless you with overflowing prosperity,
enabling you to be a blessing to others. I bless you with spiritual influence,
for you are the light of the world and the salt of the earth. You are like a
tree planted by rivers of water. You will prosper in all your ways. I bless you
with a depth of spiritual understanding and a close walk with your Lord. You
will not stumble or falter, for the Word of God will be a lamp to your feet and
a light to your path. I bless you with pure and edifying relationships in life.
You have favor with God and man. I bless you with abounding love. You will
minister God’s comforting grace to others. You are blessed, my child! You are
blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus.
Deuteronomy 28:1-14 (KJV)
If thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe
and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the
LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
2 And all these blessings shall
come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the
LORD thy God.
3 Blessed shalt thou be
in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
4 Blessed shall be the fruit
of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the
increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
5 Blessed shall be thy
basket and thy store.
6 Blessed shalt thou be
when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest
7 The LORD shall cause thine
enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall
come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
8 The LORD shall command the
blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand
unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
9 The LORD shall establish thee an
holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the
commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.
10 And all people of the earth
shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be
afraid of thee.
11 And the LORD shall make thee
plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle,
and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy
fathers to give thee.
12 The LORD shall open unto thee
his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and
to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and
thou shalt not borrow.
13 And the LORD shall make thee the
head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be
beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which
I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:
14 And thou shalt not go aside from
any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to
the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
