In this post, we will be discussing how to receive God’s blessings. There are a number of steps that you can take to ensure that you are in the right position when it comes time for Him to bless you.
These include surrendering your life and every area of it over to His sovereignty, putting Him at the center of everything you do, not ignoring your gifts and talents, moving out of your comfort zone, honoring God for how much He has blessed you with already and blessing others with what they need from how much He has given them through their lives.
Easy steps on how to receive God’s blessings.
No one knows if there is a God or not and if he/she/it does exist, certainly we are too bad to meet him or her anyway. God helps those who help themselves and those who are nothing but the devil’s playthings. So, if you’ve decided to live the good life, here are some easy steps on how to receive God’s blessings:
1. Render service to God
Since no one can serve two masters, God blesses those who humbly render faithful service to him. You should be well aware that God loves a cheerful giver. There are various ways in which you can serve God depending on your gifting and talent. One of the easiest ways to serve God is by accepting his call to service when he gives you a chance at church, fellowship groups, or an evangelism crusade.
The Bible says,
“Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” (Galatians 6:9)
We have different ways of rendering services. But God expects us to serve Him with all our hearts.
John 14:15 says,
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.” We are then assured that Jesus will manifest Himself to us and make our joy full.
Psalms 100:2 says,
“Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.”
This is the most important way of serving God. And this is what is expected of us by our Maker and Creator.
How to render service to God
There are many ways to serve God. The purpose of the service is to give our love and devotion to Him. The more we render service to God, the more blessings we will receive from Him. We can render service by:
- Spending time with God in prayer, meditation, and reflection
- Studying His words.
- Reading about the lives of great devotees who have served God selflessly for a long time.
- Doing good works for others in His name.
- Avoiding bad thoughts and actions that come between us and God.
- Spending time with other devotees engaged in praiseworthy activities that bring us closer to God.
2. Meditate on the word of God
Meditating on the word of God brings you divine direction. As you meditate on the word, your spiritual understanding is increased, your spiritual strength is increased and your revelation of the word is increased.
You receive your inheritance; healing, protection, and prosperity as you meditate on the word of God. You receive wisdom to know what to do in every situation that confronts you in life.
You have to meditate before you can manifest or experience any result. You cannot manifest or experience anything until you are established in meditation! Meditating on God’s Word will help you to establish yourself in the realm of manifestations.
How to Meditate on God’s Word in Order to Receive Blessings
1. Meditate in faith
As you read God’s word, believe that every word is true, without reservation. Do not have any doubts in your heart, but believe that what you have requested will be granted to you.
2. Meditate with expectations.
You should anticipate what you meditate on to become a reality in your life. The expectation is a powerful force that strives to generate what you desire.
3. Meditate in a consistent manner.
It is not sufficient to just meditate and expect benefits. You must put your meditation into action by doing what the word instructs you to do, even if it is tough at first.
3. Have Faith
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen. The bible says that the just shall live by faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God. God rewards those who diligently seek Him and He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we can ask or think.
It may seem strange like you are living in a land where you are hoping for something that does not yet exist or something that you have never experienced, but God wants you to be faithful even when your circumstances do not reflect what God has said about your situation.
“Without faith, it is impossible to please God”
~ Hebrews 11:6
What blessings can I receive from having faith?
Believing in God is the first step toward becoming like Him. It is the beginning of the conversion process. It marks the start of a life in which we learn to surrender our will to His.
- Faith in God gives us hope, which motivates us to act and change. It assists us in overcoming fear, anxiety, uncertainty, guilt, and other unpleasant emotions that restrict our potential.
- Through the Holy Spirit, our faith in God allows us to feel calm, contentment, and certainty.
- Our faith in God enables us to perceive our difficulties as chances for growth and benefits in our life.
- Our faith in God gives us the courage to undertake tasks that would otherwise appear impossible (like quitting smoking or drinking alcohol).
4. Repent and forsake your sins
Why must you repent? The Bible declares that “all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”. (Romans 3:23). Unless a person repents, he or she will be cast into hell.
When people believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, they are reconciled to God and they will no longer live under condemnation. They become children of God. That is when they know that all things work together for good to them which love God.
God’s blessings that come from repentance of sin
Repenting sin is a difficult and humbling process. However, the benefits of repentance are many. I have found that the more I repent, the better my life becomes.
- Cleansed conscience
- Clearer understanding
- Better relationships
- Help in temptation
- Joy from God
5. Be obedient to God
Are you obedient to God? Obedience is not an option, it is a commandment. Jesus said, “If you love me, you will obey what I command” (John 14:15).
Jesus also said that if we love him and believe, then keep his commandments. The Lord reminds us in the Bible: Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
He who goes out weeping to carry seed to sow will return with songs of joy carrying sheaves with him (Psalm 126:6). Your obedience to God opens the door for His blessings in your life.
Grow in your relationship with Christ by asking Him to show you how to be obedient to Him so you can receive His blessings.
Blessing of Obedience to God
There are many blessings that come along with the blessings of the obedience in your life. The In return our obedient behavior towards God, we can reap the benefits. These rewards for obedience to God include success, love, health and money.
Obedience to God is the first of all the fruit of the Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. – Galatians 5:22
6. Do not be a slave to sin
After we acquire a personal relationship with God, His life is imparted to us. We receive the Holy Spirit (John 7:37-39). As a result, we have access to power to overcome sin.
The Holy Spirit resides in each Christian and helps him or her avoid sinful thoughts and actions. However, Christians are not perfect. They are still human and can fall into temptation. Therefore, they must be on their guard against sin at all times.
The Bible teaches that we should not willingly submit ourselves to the desires of our own flesh or to others who seek to influence us toward sin (1 Corinthians 10:12).
We should say no to ungodliness. We should never use our freedom from sin as an excuse for evil conduct (Romans 6:1-2).
We must understand that there is no middle ground between righteousness and wickedness—we cannot be both righteous and worldly at the same time (Luke 16:13, James 4:4). If we believe in God’s promises for our lives but continue living a sinful lifestyle, then it will be difficult for us to experience God’s blessings as He sees fit (Romans 2:5-11).
Sometimes we are faced with events and circumstances in life that seem to challenge basic comprehension, our faith, and our belief in God hence the need to go to God in prayers.
Prayer is not meditation or passive reflection; it is direct communication with God. It is the human soul’s communication with the Lord who created the soul.
Prayer is the primary means through which a believer in Jesus Christ communicates his emotions and wants to God, as well as communion with God.
How do you pray for God’s blessings?
To receive God’s blessing, you need to pray and have faith that your prayers are answered. these are some effective steps for prayers.
- Your request should be based on God’s personality. Pray as if you are confident that God will reply to your request.
- Confess any sins you are aware of. Despite the fact that he was not at fault, Nehemiah admitted his role in Israel’s sin that led to their exile. He wasn’t even born at the time; he was most likely born in captivity. Nonetheless, he is complicit in the nation’s misdeeds. “I’ve been a part of the problem,” he admits.
- End your prayer with thankfulness to God based on how he answers. Pray for the things you want, not just what’s wrong in your life. You can pray about everything that concerns you or affects you positively and negatively.
- Claim God’s promises. Is it necessary to remind God? No. Is he forgetting what he promised? No. So, why do we do it? Because it reminds us of what God has promised. God’s promises never fail. — Joshua 21:45, God is always good. — Psalm 119:68, God can be trusted — Hebrews 10:23, See more of God’s Promises in this Article.
- Make your request as specific as possible. Make specific requests if you desire particular responses to your prayers. How will you know whether your prayers are answered if they are universal requests?
God is the source of all blessings.
He is faithful to his promises, and he is the giver of all good gifts. Psalm 84:11 reminds us that God blesses us abundantly and that he gives us strength as we pass through life’s challenges. The Bible gives many more examples of God blessing his children, even in the midst of their troubles.
God has already blessed you. Psalm 24:1 reminds us that everything we have belongs to God, so it’s easy to see that all blessings ultimately come from him! When you feel blessed by a new car, a job promotion or even just making it to work on time because you beat rush hour traffic, remember that God gave those things to you!
There are many things in life that we can be blessed with. Health, wealth, love, and numerous other forms of goodness can become part of your life if you seek them out.
If you’re looking for genuine optimism and faith in the divine, take a step back and consider the steps we have outlined above. It may well be that by following these steps, you will begin to receive some of the blessings that God has for you—and live a happier life as a result.
