Pastor John Njenga's comment on 2015-01-18 23:19:53:
for us to experience the blessings of the Lord we just need to honor his word and live in accordance to his principle as per his word
Julian's comment on 2015-01-06 03:52:14:
The grace unmerited, unearned favour of God contains the fullness of his blessing for all mankind. Consequently our toiling, self effort and worldly striving can neither add to that blessing or disminish it. Our role is to receive the fullness of his unearned favour by faith in his word and His innate goodness.

doesn 't the holy spirit gives us one understanding or is he not been listened too...this answer came through the Revelation of the Holy Spirit when God blesses you you should have questions,disappointment,sorrow etc.about what you have received e.g.lets say someone give you something and it is not up to slandered new or you had to fight over it,usable you have to fix it,second hand etc....all that will bring sorrow,b to you,but God 's blessing is first of all PURE..

Proverbs 10 22 The Blessing of the Lord it make you rich and he adds no sorrow with it This scripture describes to us the attributes of God and his Blessing Not only do you have the blessing but it yields us the maximum states of being riches wealth This scripture also states that God does not half handedly give and do anything for us He is not selfish to give to us out of an alternative motive to cause us regret angst or frustration when we need or ask People God is just superior in his love for us

To be blessed by God is to have your heritage in God manifest physically according to the genuineness of your faith as an end to a particular trial and persecution.

To me, this verse tells me that as long as you realise that you are purchased by the precious blood of Jesus and you accept Him in totality keeping and obeying the commandments and also acting the word of God, the blessing of God will surely come to you.You will also enjoy the blessing in the atmosphere of peace without any regret.The spiritual blessings will come first.

WHEN THE LORD BLESSES YOU DONT NEED TO TOIL TO UNWRAP THEM, YOU DONT HAVE TO FEEL THAT YOU ARE TRULLY WORKING TO ENJOY THEM , HE GIVES THEM TO YOU FREELY, YOU DONT HAVE TO STRIVE TO GET THEM , YOU JUST BELIEVE AND RECEIVE!

Having Jehovah's blessing is a value beyond all compare. Material things can be lost or fade away. Having the approval of people can come and go. Nothing can compare to the blessing of Jehovah God though. To have the blessing of the most powerful being in the universe is truly an amazing feeling and when God blesses you, he adds no pain with his blessing.

The blessings of God are those physical,material and spiritual things that The Lord has made available for as many that receive Christ. These blessings come without struggling for it,it is a result of faithfulness to God and complete trust in is words,it brings joy to the heart of the receipent and glory to the name of The Lord.

It's really very important to note! Anything that comes from the God of light is good and a perfect gift. There are no regrets in God's blessings through Jesus Christ. Be blessed everyone.

Whatever brings joy , happiness and fulfillment in life , as long as it is from God, there should be no regrettable incidents attached to it.

Mathew 6:33 "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all things shall be added unto you and 3 John 1:2 "Beloved I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in good health even as your soul prosoers" are some of the scriptures relating to the True long lasting Prosperity that comes from the Lord Jesus along. Worldly prosperity/richness do not last if there is no God in it. Sad but TRUE
Enos's comment on 2013-08-09 06:02:13:
The blessings of God will indeed result I riches. However being rich does not necessarily mean one has the blessings from God. As Christians, we shold be carefull not to fall in the temptation of doing everything we can in order to get riches. The bible says many have fallen into sin because of the love of money. Let the riches be part and parcel of 'seek ye first the kingdom and its righteousness, and all these other things (including riches, health, obedient children, happy marriage, favor etc) shall be added unto you".

When the Lord blesses, it brings satisfaction,contentment and one is fulfilled.
Morris Mensah's comment on 2013-07-19 00:39:21:
The blessings of God maketh rich: I see this scripture on the path of waiting. Waiting on God is ***ociated with much affliction and pressures. It is not easy to wait on God. People are not ready to endure to the end. They tend to help themselves in so many ways other than waiting on God but through all this, when that time is due, it takes only God's own time appointed blessings 2 stand and that makes a man wealthy.
Never forget that every good and perfect gift comes from above.
Apart from blessings, he adds no sorrow. It is self sustaining. Whatever God gives u stands the test of time. It will florish day by day. You will not loose it niether will u regret. His blessings are more greater than our afflictions. It can cause you to forget the shame of your youth.
Let us wait on the right time and forever shall we be happy.
Akinoso Oluwaseyi's comment on 2013-07-16 07:36:48:
the blessing of the lord can only bestow on somebody who obey and do the will of the lord.one does not need to pray before being blessed by him as some people are doing today. It has a path you have to take,once you miss the road that is all. It is his God's word against your doing. He has never said something and came back without fuilfilment.
