This morning our pastor read Genesis 12:2-3. While this was not really what his sermon was about, I noted three things that God told Abram.
1 – God said, “I will bless you.”
2 – God said, “You shall be a blessing.”
3 – God said, “In you others shall be blessed.”
God had a plan for Abraham, and as Abraham believed God and moved forward with God’s plan, God blessed him, he was a blessing, and we are still blessed today.
While God’s plan for me isn’t to make a great nation like His promise to Abraham, God still has a plan and purpose for my life. He has a plan and purpose for your life too. When we submit to God and follow His plan and walk in His purpose for our life:
1 – God blesses us individually.
2 – We become a blessing.
3 – In us others are blessed.
Have you ever thought about the fact that when you don’t follow God’s plan and purpose, you could be hindering a blessing on others? Wherever you are today, regardless of the past, seek God and his plan and purpose for your life now, and move forward at His direction. He will bless you, you will become a blessing, and others will be blessed.
