    THE BLESSING OF GOD IS NOT COMMANDED BY MAN. GOD WISHED TO GRACIOUSLY EMBALLISHED MAN WITH HIS BLESSING. NO WONDER ST. PAUL SAID THAT WHEN WE WERE YET SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US.
  • Pastor john njenga for verse 22
    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
  • 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..
