Gen 1:28 NKJV
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
When God created Adam and Eve, He blessed them and said, “Because you have been blessed by Me, you will know My favor, you will be fruitful, you will multiply and you will partner with Me in extending My kingdom and establishing my purpose here on earth”
God made it very clear from the beginning that He wanted to bless mankind. That same blessing is available to us today through our faith in Jesus.
Eph 1:3 NKJV
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ
This means that we can know God’s favor, be fruitful, multiply and increase because we are blessed by Him.
As we start our 21 days of prayer and fasting let’s take this time to focus on drawing closer to God than ever before, knowing that God’s favor and blessing flow out of our relationship with Him.
May 2016 be a year of fruitfulness, multiplication and favor for you, your family and our church as we partner with Jesus in the greatest cause of all.
