Genesis 12:2, “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing.”
Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless you in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious word of God that comes to you for today, is taken from the book of Genesis 12:2, “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing.”
In the above verse God says, that you shall be a blessing. God says, “I will make you a great nation.” This is the overflowing blessing that God wants to give you. Only if it overflows you shall be famous or your name will be spoken about in the society. If there is no overflowing experience, and the content remains within the vessel, then your name will not be known by anyone. You will not receive name and fame. On that day there was a man known as Isaac. God blessed him with an overflowing blessing. Though there was famine in that land, yet in that year he harvested a hundredfold. The Bible says, “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous; This is what God means by saying an overflowing blessing. He received an overflowing blessing during the time of famine. So, what happened, the entire nation began to speak about him and his prosperity. People began to speak about his rich harvest during the time of famine. God exalted his name. And he became a popular person among the people of the nation that people came up to him and said, “We know for sure that the Lord of Israel is with you.” He was recognized by everyone in the land.
Even the King of the land, Abimelech came to know that the man who came to his nation to make his living, was blessed with an overflowing blessing. The King was also surprised to learn from others that during the famine, wherever Isaac dug wells, water gushed from the bottom like a spring of water. Even in places that usually is dry, water began to flow from beneath the earth where Isaac dug his well. That was the work of God who honoured Isaac, because he was the son of Abraham, who was the friend of God. People reported about his prosperity to the king. They said, wherever the man dug his wells water sprang forth and hence he became rich and wealthy. Therefore, the king himself came to meet Isaac and made a covenant with him. The king thought that it will be wise to have friendship with Isaac. Because all of them found an overflowing blessing in the life of Isaac. In the place where there was no chance of obtaining water, springs of water, rose from the earth beneath. And this surprised the people of the nation.
Today God is looking at you and saying, that He will make you a great nation. Abraham did not have a child when God promised him that He would make him a great nation. But Abraham believed in the promise of God. So, he was blessed with a son Isaac. This was an overflowing blessing that God blessed Abraham with. Many of you are thinking that it would be fine if you got a single child to tell your name. But God assures that God will bless you with many children. This is what He means by saying, overflowing blessing. “A great nation.” God will hereafter give you an overflowing income, an overflowing anointing. God is going to bless you with abundant blessing of harvest. The Bible says, “He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” God says, you have gladly invested, but you had not harvested in plenty all these days. But in the coming future, you shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing your sheaves of crops with you.” God is assuring you with these words and blessing you today.
Prayer: Loving Heavenly Father! Lord we thank you. Lord let your children enjoy an overflowing blessing in their homes. Whether it would be gift of children or their income, whether it is their name and fame, may be anointing or the gift of prayer, whatever it may be, let them experience the overflowing blessing in their life. And as a result, let their famine, and poverty disappear from their families. Let every form of shame and dishonour be removed from their homes. Let all of those who read this message be blessed. Let all the barriers that obstruct the progress in their life be destroyed in the name of Jesus. Perform miracles and wonders for them in their life.
