At Gateway Church in Austin, this past weekend Karin Harper spoke at Gateway South, and I spoke this past Sunday at the McNeil campus.
When we had time, we shared a blessing from our Heavenly Father:
Consider these words of blessing, encouragement, and promise over your life.
2 All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you (trust me)…
3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country… 6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. 7 (As Your Father, I) will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. 8 (As Your Father, I) will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. (I) will bless you in the land (I am) giving you.
9 (As Your Father, I) will establish you as (my) holy people, as (I) promised you on oath, if you keep (my) commands and walk in obedience to (me). 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by (my) name, and they will fear you. 11 (I) will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land (I) swore to your ancestors to give you… 12 (As Your Father, I) will open the heavens, the storehouse of (my) bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. – Deuteronomy 28:2-12 (NIV)
26 “There is no one like (Your Father), who rides across the heavens to help you and on the clouds in… majesty. 27 (As Your Father, I am) your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. – Deuteronomy 33:26-27 (NIV)
9 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for I will be with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9 (NIV)
14 “Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises (your Heavenly Father) gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed. – Joshua 23:14 (NIV)
3 ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know…’ 6 “‘Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing…. I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security…. 8 I will cleanse them from all the sin they have committed against me and will forgive all their sins of rebellion against me.9 Then this city will bring me renown, joy, praise and honor before all nations on earth that hear of all the good things I do for it; and they will be in awe and will tremble at the abundant prosperity and peace I provide for it.’ – Jeremiah 33:3, 6, 8-9 (NIV)
18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. – John 14:18, 21 (NIV)
And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” – 2 Corinthians 6:18 (NIV)
If you know your Father then you know who you are- which is UNSTOPPABLE! Thank you for sharing this- many times we lose our identity but when we seek the Father we find our true selves and all that He has promised us!!
What a spiritual upgrade! Thank you Jesus! Amen!!
