How to Release 9 Blessings in Your Life {Blessing #3}

__________________________________________________________


"Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth."


Blessing #3: we will inherit the earth.

To Release This Blessing:   First we need to understand what it means to be meek.  Meek means a gentleness of spirit.  This translates as a dependency on Jesus verses asserting our own ways above God’s ways.

This one of the blessings given to Abraham in Genesis and now belongs as a blessing for every follower of Jesus.  To inherit the earth is to embrace meekness resulting in authority and dominion over it.

How to Release 9 Blessings in Your Life {Blessing #2}

__________________________________________________________


"Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted."


Blessing #2: we will be comforted in mourning


To Release This Blessing:   It begins with salvation.  Then invite the Holy Spirit to fill you with his presence. Holy Spirit is also known as The Comforter and he will comfort you in every situation.  If you are in a time of mourning, ask him to release comfort over you now.

When we are in relationship with Jesus, the presence of the Holy Spirit is one of the indicators that you are in relationship with him.

How to Release 9 Blessings in Your Life {Blessing #1}


Have you ever been casually reading the bible and come across the Beatitudes in Matthew chapter 5?  What in the world is a beatitude? - I don't think I've ever used that word my whole life!  


Beatitude:  Supreme Blessedness; Sainthood; Saintliness


Ok...I don't use any of those words daily either, but after reading in Matthew chapter 5: 1-11 the word that I can most easily connect with is Supreme Blessedness. The scripture starts off by saying that Jesus sat down and began to teach the disciples the following beatitudes or rather the supreme blessedness. (Can we just shorten this word of supreme blessedness to blessings?) So, from now on I will refer to each beatitude as a "blessing".

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."


Blessing #1: the inheritance of the kingdom of heaven.  


To Release This Blessing:  Poor in spirit means to acknowledge your need for spiritual transformation; it begins with salvation.  Decide to follow Jesus with your whole heart.  It's not easy for us to surrender our own way of thinking, and our own way of living to follow the path that Jesus has for us.

When you surrender your life to Jesus, you become a part of the kingdom of Heaven subsequently opening the door for the blessings of Heaven to pour out onto your life.
