When I was little it wasn’t rare to hear people say to one another ‘bless you’ just after you have done them a kind deed. There was no embarrassment back then, because it was not as rare as it is today. And people would just replied either with a thank you back or God bless you too. We need to start blessing one another. Even if it is just between God and you, blessing that person who has been helpful. What about blessing your town, school, church or country and etc. I feel with all the cursing that is going around we need to counteract it with blessings. Blessings I believe are even more powerful than curses. When we bless one another in the Name of God we are working with God and when we curse we are working against God. So to me it is easy to see that blessings has to be more powerful than curses. When you are cursing I believe you are cursing in the name of Satan, consciously or not. It makes a lot of sense to me. Some people may think of course blessings are going to be more powerful it is common sense that it is so. So why bother bringing that up? Because there are too many Christians out there that seem to think the devil is bigger than God. They say things to themselves like ‘why bother? it is not going to make any difference.’ They give up to easily, when faced with opposition.
Blessing is an act of loving your town, school, church or country etc. It needs a lot of love and healing and success in everything it does for the Glory of God. That is the work blessing does, it provides a means to have things accomplished as God Wills it. God Wills only what is good, joyful and healthy for our souls. Curses does the opposite and cause hardship, failure, depression and lack. And blessing doesn’t take up much of your time, if you chose. I love using my rosary beads when I want to repeat a prayer over and over again. Especially when I am in one of those moods when I feel God Spirit on me to keep praying. I may use the Divine Chaplet of Mercy that I have typed out for you in another article. Or some other favourite prayer like the one that I offer up the Scared Heart of Y’shua and offer it up for what I feel God has put into my heart. God really doesn’t care what way you pray as long as your heart is in the right place. When you are praying for your marriage, children, town, school, church or country and etc. bless also your enemies. It helps you not to get angry with them and become bitter towards them. Blessings work if you are genuinely blessing everybody for the Glory of God. And God will in turn bless you.
The Lord blesses the home of the just. He gives grace to the humble.
Blessing crown the head of the righteous. The name of the righteous is used in blessings, but the name of the wicked will rot.
One day while I was shopping, I was blessing everybody that I passed by in my head and because I was doing that it made me feel cheerful and I even got a few very warm smiles back. They didn’t know that I was blessing them, but maybe their spirit did.
