SylviaListen with your spirit to God's Word in Genesis 12:2. "I will bless you...and you will be a blessing."

You can experience with your spirit the total satisfaction of God's heart toward you.

You are a blessing to him. Be blessed with listening to God's tender heart, the voice of El Shaddai to woo and nurture, to love and find pleasure in you. Feel his satisfaction in you, as you delight and fulfill his heart by simply being you. Be blessed with freedom to be the unique you that you are, the beautiful you that God designed. He is pleased when you dedicate everything about you to him: your gifts, birthright, your time and seasons, the land on which you walk and work and play and live, your likes and dislikes, your interests, your passions, every expression of who you are.

Be blessed with joy and strength and grace as you resonate in sync with the Father of your spirit (Heb 12:9). You are one of God's good gifts. Be blessed with spiritual eyes to see that he is leaving his fingerprints all over your life. Be blessed as you celebrate God's blessing in you, and let that blessing flow out of you. Be blessed in the way you discern, sense, feel, and express Jesus in you. It is uniquely you without apology, and it is God's gift to you and to others. Be blessed as you minister his good gifts, starting in your closest relationships.

Be blessed with strong connection with your Father, so that it overflows into fresh connection spirit-to-spirit, heart-to-heart with others. God wants you to leave his fingerprints on others. Be blessed with restoring and deepening significant horizontal relationships and creating new ones, as God makes your love increase and overflow for others. You are a blessing to others, as you display his blessing inside and out.

Even if you have never blessed others before, just do it. Your Father will bless your risk-taking for whatever he says. If you have never done it, if you don't have a mentor or model, it's o.k. Look into God's face, and let him pour into you what he is saying to you. He will go ahead of you. He is your way-maker and your confidence. Be blessed to see signs of God's goodness in specific ways that speak to you that he is present and involved, he is active and in charge. He is blessing you to be a blessing.

Be blessed in the generational name of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
(Exo 3:15).
