“All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you…”
Close your eyes for a moment and imagine yourself literally being overtaken by blessings. A great example of this picture is that of a football player being aggressively tackled to the ground from behind. In this way, God wants you to be overtaken by blessings. God is a blessing God, and He wants you blessed beyond measure! You were created to live an extremely blessed life!

When Jesus came into the earth, He began His ministry by preaching, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2). The kingdom of heaven is a realm and dimension of blessing, and its atmosphere is love. The Bible teaches much about heaven. It is beautiful and glorious, full of God’s presence, angelic activity, joy, and it is absent of pain, sorrow, lack, sickness, and death.
It is God’s desire that in and through Christ, we live in this dimension of blessing while on the earth. Jesus taught us to pray in this way: “Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).
Before the fall, mankind lived in the fullness of the blessing of God on the earth. It was God’s desire for His creation to be blessed, and that is why His first decree over mankind was: “And God blessed them…” (Genesis 1:27).
Throughout the old and new testaments, we see God’s full commitment to blessing His people. He blessed Abraham and declared that he would be blessed so that he could be a blessing. We see Him directing His priests to invoke blessing upon the people. He called the children of Israel to live in the blessings while journeying with Him in the wilderness. He declared over New Testament believers that they were blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places and with everything pertaining to life and godliness. He truly is a blessing God and desires to shower you with blessings so that you will flourish in every area of your life. Jesus came that you would have life in its abundance. Enter the blessing realm and expect blessings to come upon you and overtake you today and all the days of your life.
