The Lord shall command the blessing upon you in your storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless you in the land which the Lord thy God giveth you.
It is so amazing that this scripture says God will command a blessing on us! To command is a strong gesture. To command means to have authority over something. He has given us authority over the blessing. We are in control of receiving or in some cases not receiving the blessing on our life and on our land. The land that God has given us can be our homes, part of the earth, and anything we own. This reminds me of the prayer of Jabez found in 1 Chronicles 4:10. The first line of the prayer is, “… Oh that thou would bless me indeed…”
I challenge you to go to your church service and expect to be blessed, go to work and expect to be blessed. Do not just wait for blessing to drop out of the sky but use your authority and command the blessing to come. By faith expect the blessing to come!
