When I look at my life and all the favor God has shown me, I often say, “I know I must be God’s favorite.” Of course, I know God doesn’t play favorites, but I just can’t help feeling that way seeing how good God has been to me.
Would you like to see more of God’s blessing and favor on your life?
In the book of Psalms, David declared, concerning God and His blessing, “Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah” (Psalm 3:8). Selah means to take a moment and think about this truth.
What does it mean to have God’s blessing on your life? How would God’s blessing change the circumstances you’re facing? How would it affect your relationships, finances, and health?
I have found that God’s blessing is an empowerment that causes you to prosper and succeed. Not just for your own personal gain, but to accomplish the vision and purpose of God for your life and family.
God’s blessing will open doors of opportunities and give you influence that education or money can’t produce.
As a follower of Christ, God’s blessing is available to you! God wants you so blessed and so favored that people will see it and be attracted to the God you serve.
We see this happen in the life of Abraham recorded in Genesis. God spoke to Abraham in Genesis 12:2 saying, “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing.”
“Make your name great” means people will know you. Some translations say that you will be made famous. This means people will see and know how blessed and favored you are by God.
So, what does this blessing look like? The very next chapter describes it saying, “Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold” (Genesis 13:2). And this blessing wasn’t short lived. It continued throughout his life. Genesis 24:1 (NLT) reveals that, “Abraham was now a very old man, and the Lord had blessed him in every way. ”
God’s blessing isn’t just reserved for Abraham. God’s blessing is available to you through the finished work of Jesus Christ! You are chosen by God, a recipient of His blessing, and people ought to see the blessing active in your life.
Can people see God’s blessing on your life? They should!
God spoke to His people in Deuteronomy 28:10 (NLT) declaring, “Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the Lord, and they will stand in awe of you.”
We see evidence of this in Isaac’s life also when Abimelech said to him, “Well, we can plainly see that Jehovah is blessing you” (Genesis 26:28 TLB).

Sadly, many believers don’t walk in the blessing of God because of a lack of knowledge. They don’t know what God’s promises are or how to receive the blessing. That’s why God has called me to declare these truths and give personal examples of it working in my life.
