“God didn’t add another day to your life because you needed it. He did it because someone out there needs you!”
Genesis 1:26-27 (MSG)
God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, And, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.”
Genesis 1:26-27 (MSG)
God created human beings; he created them godlike, Reflecting God’s nature. He created them male and female. God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge! Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.”
We cannot give what we have not received.
A transmittal or endowment of the power of God’s goodness and favor, usually through the spoken word and often with the accompanying act of the laying on of hands.
The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.
God’s strategy is to affect the world was through a “blessing strategy”.
