BIBLE READING:   Luke  8: 1-3

“Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city  and village, preaching and bringing the glad  tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were  with  Him. And  a  certain woman  who  had been healed  of evil spirits and infirmities – Mary called Magdalene, out of whom had come out seven demons, and  Joanna  the wife of Chuza,  Herod’s  steward,  and Susanna, and many others who provided for Him from  their substance.”

You   must  be  a blessing. God ordained you for so many things- preaching , administration ,  charitable works, rulers, caring for children, peace makers, providing for people’s needs, praying for nations,  praying  for Shepherds,  make things happen ( especially difficult situations), encouragement (Lifters) etc.  God ordained you for different kinds of things which is summarized as  “ I am a Blessing”.  If you are praying for people, making  solution, settling matters that have discrepancies, you are helping. Genesis  12: 1-2   says “ Now  the Lord said to Abraham,  get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s  house   to  a land that  I  will show you.  I will make you  a great  nation, I will bless you and make your name great and you shall be a blessing.”  The  Lord  told  Abraham  to get out from his father’s  house  and that He will make him a great nation and bless him.  God  will make you  a blessing  in Jesus Name. Amen.  If you had a bad  dream for somebody  that accidentally died and you woke up and  rebuked it so that the person will not get into that death trap,  you are a blessing.  When God blesses  you  and you don’t  extent  it t o  other people, then you are not a  blessing.  Some people  have  labored  so hard and death cut them short.  On  the other, people who did not labor at  all will now reap the fruit of  labor. You shall be  a  blessing  in Jesus Name. Amen. You  must  be  a blessing  to your family, church,  community, everyone around you. If God  says  you are a blessing, He has already made a provision for  you in terms  of money.  Our Lord Jesus cast out demons from some women; He cast out seven demons from Mary  Magdalene. Whatever God has ordained for you must come to pass. God ordained  Mary Magdalene  with the Holy Spirit  to work in His kingdom but the devil inflicted her with  evil spirits. She was supposed to have been cut off but the mercy of  God  kept  her alive.  Apostle  Paul  was noted to have persecuted the Christians but God  still used him to save souls for His kingdom.   God  does  not  think  the way  we  think  and work. God  justifies. God blesses. There are three  things  the devil  and all his agents of darkness  do not know about  the children of God:

  1. What God  ordained  you  for.  If they knew about Christ Jesus, they would  not have crucified Him.  At the  age  of forty years, Moses fled the land of Egypt for murder.  At Eighty, God  still called him to deliver the Israelites from bondage.
  2. The  enemies do not know about the power  that makes  it  for  you.
  3. Enemies can never overcome the power that makes it happen .         Anywhere  you  go,  pray to God that you want  to be a blessing. Some  people’s  solution  in life are in your hands. If  you  release  blessing  to people, God releases  immeasurable blessing  to  you.   I f  you  advise   people  going  through stress, you have lifted them up. You don’t have to be a Pastor before you preach salvation to people to gain the kingdom of God. You can be a blessing to people in different capacities.  At the age of  six,  Miriam  stood to guide Moses in the river.  Exodus  2:7 says  “  Then  his sister said to Pharaoh’s  daughter,  shall  I go and call  a nurse  for you  from the  Hebrew women that she may  nurse  the child for you.?  God put His wisdom in Miriam to  call  Moses  mother  to nurse  Moses for the princess. Therefore, Miriam   was  a  blessing  to  Moses  who  in turn became a  blessing  to Israelites.  Nobody can destroy  what  God has established. Moses was brought up in Pharaoh’s  palace to prepare him to liberate the Israelites  from captivity.  When  King  Ahaseurus  married queen Esther, he did not  ask where the woman came from. Your destiny can never be changed  and  all the plans of your enemies  against  you can never succeed. Your enemies can try to kill you, they can try to threaten you but they will not succeed because you are a child of God. Numbers  23:23  says  “ For there is no sorcery against Jacob, nor any divination against Israel; It now must be said of Jacob  and Israel, Oh, what God has done.”  “ Romans  8:31 says  “ What the shall we say to these  things?  If  God  is for us, who can be against us?  If you are helping people today, you do not know what will happen tomorrow.  If you are a  President  of your country or a state Governor, what are you going to  offer to your people?  Luke 19:8 “  Then Zacchaeus   stood  and said to the Lord, look Lord, I give  half of my goods to the poor and if I have  taken anything  from anyone  by false accusation, I  return  fourfold.”  God wants you to be a blessing to people. God made  you  to be what you are  today. Where you are today, God made it so. Our Lord Jesus Christ  countered  the demons in Mary Magdalene so as to enable her work for God. She was the  first  person  to see  Christ resurrected. God can raise millionaires from the church to bless the church. You are a  blessing  in Jesus Name. Amen. Zacchaeus  said I give  all what I have  to the people.. God wants  you to help the poor. You must make peace  if you offend each other. No power of darkness shall destroy you in Jesus Name. Amen. Joseph of  Arimathea  constructed the tomb where Jesus was buried. Mary Magdalene  and  Susana  made provisions for our Lord Jesus Christ. Galatians 2:20 says ” I have been crucified  with Christ:  It is no longer I  who live but  Christ lives in me;  and the life which I now live in the  flesh  I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.”  When you are in the Lord, you don’t own your life again.  Christ lives  in you  because you have been crucified , it is no longer your own body but the temple of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 3:16 says “  Do you not know that you are the temple of  God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you.?   Supporting  the verse  is  1 Corinthians  6:19 that  says  “ Or do you not know that  your body  is the temple  of the  Holy Spirit  who is in you , whom you have from God and you are not  your own?  1  Corinthians 3:11-15 says ‘  For  no other foundation can anyone lay  than that which is laid which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood , hay straw; each one’s work will become clear  for the day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.  If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned,  he will suffer loss  but he himself will be saved, yet so  as through fire.”  Whatever anybody built  will be tested by fire. You have to pass  through  fire before you get to Heaven. You should try to comfort people who are  distressed.  Some people  take delight in scattering marriages, Some people hurt other people’s feelings,  Some people are rumor mongers in the church, Some people  have attended well over 30 churches and  they found no one good, thereby, contributing problem to the kingdom of God. You are the problem and not the church. You should examine yourself.  Matthew  16:18  says  “  And I also said to you  that you are Peter and on this rock I will build My church  and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”  God has not given the judgment of anybody upon you and so  you  don’t have to condemn anybody. If you want to be a blessing to people, there are things  you have to take away from your life.


  1. PUT THE PAST BEHIND YOU:  You have to put the past behind you if you want to be a blessing to any man or woman. Abraham made Lot.  Lot went  against  Abraham . He chose the best vegetation. Abraham saved Lot when he was captured  in Sodom  and because of Abraham, Lot received salvation during the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Joseph also forgave his brothers. Genesis 50:20 says “  But as for you, you meant evil against me but God meant it for good in order  to bring  it about  as it is this day  to save many people alive.”  When people are working against you , they don’t  know that they are pushing you to your place of destiny. Ecclesiastes 7:10 says ‘  Do not say  why were the former days better than these?  For you do not inquire wisely concerning this.”  Proverbs  26:27 says   “ Whoever  digs a pit  will  fall into it  and he who rolls a stone  will have it roll back to him.” If  enemies  are cursing you, throwing stones at you, attacking you, they are digging their own grave.  God can cut your life short if you  are not a blessing to people. Enemies  cannot  get rid of you  because you are in Christ . You have to forget the past  if you want to  be a  blessing to people. If you don’t forgive people, God will not forgive you.

2.    YOU  MUST  LOVE:

You must not  be jealous or envious of people. Jesus loves us  and lay down His life  for us. 16:15 says  “   All things that  the  Father  has are  Mine.  Therefore, I  said  that  He will  take  of  Mine  and declare it to you.”  You can deliver your neighbor’s children from dangers;  You can make contribution to  the church convention. Exodus  4:2  says ”  So the Lord said to him; What is that in your hand?  He said,  a rod.”  God  said to Moses, you are carrying anointing in your hand.  Again a woman  countered  the work of devil against eight houses in her neighborhood with anointing oil.  She is a blessing to her neighbors.


The Spirit of God gives you life and helps you to do the right thing at the right time. Galatians 5:16 says “ I say then: Walk in the  Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”   In support of the verse  2  Corinthians 3:17 says  ” Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty.”  If the Spirit of God  is with you, you must try to give people freedom  anywhere  you  go.  You must desire to be a  blessing  every hour, every day, every week, every month, every year.  Jeremiah  1:19  says           “  They will fight against you  but  they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you says  the  Lord to deliver you.”  The Lord says your enemies shall not prevail against you.  It is God that promotes people and if God blesses  you  with money to build a mansion, there is a reason. You should have the Spirit of compassion  and  give alms to beggars or reach out to those  that needs help. Solomon blessed people. He sacrificed  thousands of  sheep, oxen for God and God  gave him an open  cheque. Since  then, there is no king bigger  than  Solomon today. Jesus left  His kingdom (Heavens) and became a  blessing to us. You are not a curse; you are a blessing. God  prepared  Portiphah  because of Joseph. Jacob was a blessing to the house of  Laban.   St. Luke , a physician followed Jesus and  Apostle Paul.  Anywhere you go, you are a blessing in Jesus Name. Amen. God will  grant you the ability  to excel, ability to fulfill  your  purpose, ability to continue,  you will be a man/woman  to put the past behind,  you will be a man /woman that shows compassion.  God will grant you a new record,  no  power will stand against you, nothing will cut your life short,  you will be man/woman that  is filled with the Spirit of God, you will do what God asked you to do in Jesus  Name. Amen.
