As believers in Christ, we have access to the blessing of Abraham through faith. These blessings include financial prosperity. However, many Christians wonder why they are not experiencing the full manifestation of these blessings.
To truly walk as the seed of Abraham and experience the fullness of God’s blessings requires more than mere confession. The missing link is our willingness to submit to God’s superior revelation, align with God’s will, and obey His commandments.
The Works Of Abraham
We need to explore the key found in John 8:38-39 (NJKV)— and emphasize the importance of doing the works of Abraham between confession and manifestation. Jesus pointed out that the behaviour and results in our lives reveal who and what we truly believe or follow. If we are genuinely connected to Abraham, we will exhibit the “works” of Abraham.
“By doing the works of Abraham, our lives will reflect the inheritance of blessings promised to us as the seed of Abraham.”
4 Keys to Abraham’s Footsteps: Unlocking Financial Blessings.
He was a prominent figure in the Bible and was blessed abundantly by God in various aspects of life, including financially. If we desire to experience the same financial blessing that Abraham enjoyed, we must study his life and follow in his footsteps.
- Faith in God’s Promises.
Abraham had faith in God’s promises which played a crucial role in his financial blessings. In Hebrews 11:8-12 (NKJV)— we see that he believed in God’s pledge to make him a great nation, despite being childless at an old age. Similarly, we must trust in God’s promises of provision and abundance, knowing He is faithful to fulfil His Word.
2. Obedience in Tithing and Giving.
Abraham demonstrated his obedience by giving a tenth of his possessions to Melchizedek, the priest of God Most High (Genesis 14:18-20). Likewise, we are encouraged to honour God with our tithes and offerings, as mentioned in Malachi 3:10. Through faithful giving; we position ourselves to receive financial blessings from God.
3. Trusting God as Our Provider.
Willingness to trust God as our ultimate provider is evident in Abraham’s life (Genesis 22:14) when he named the place of sacrifice “The LORD Will Provide.” Let us also put our trust in God’s provision, knowing that He is Jehovah Jireh, our provider who meets all our needs according to His riches in glory (Philippians 4:19).
4. Avoiding the Love of Money.
While Abraham was financially blessed, he did not allow wealth to become an idol. In Hebrews 11:9-10 (NKJV)— we learn that he sought a heavenly city rather than a worldly one.
“Exploring these key principles from Abraham’s journey and scriptures reveal how we can unlock financial blessings in our lives.”
God’s Desire To Prosper His People
God desires His people to experience spiritual growth and prosper in all aspects of life. One essential aspect of this prosperity is the grace of giving. God blesses His people abundantly through giving, making them great and causing even their enemies to envy them.
The grace of giving is a divine principle established throughout the Bible. God blesses us when we give with a willing and cheerful heart. God’s favour abounds as we give generously, and our lives become channels of blessings. (2 Corinthians 9:6-8 & Proverbs 11:25).
The grace of giving is intricately linked to prosperity and abundance. God opens the floodgates of heaven as we give and pour out blessings that we cannot contain. This overflow extends to every area of our lives, including finances, health, relationships, and spiritual walk. (Malachi 3:10 & Luke 6:38).
“When God’s people prosper, even their enemies take notice. This envy is a testimony to God’s faithfulness and His transformative power. (Deuteronomy 28:10 & Psalm 23:5)
By walking in Abraham’s footsteps and applying these principles, we can experience the financial blessings God has in store. Remember that as we seek God’s will and live in alignment with His Word, He will graciously pour His blessings upon us, just as He did for Abraham.
As believers, we have the privilege of tapping into the blessings of Abraham. Embrace God’s call, believe against all odds, count righteousness through faith, obey His instructions, and live a fulfilled life in Christ.
