How do we inherit the blessings of the Lord in this life and the life to come?
One of the many aspects of God that I love is His desire to bless, prosper, and grow His children to be mighty in the land He wants to give them (Exodus 1:7, Psalm 112). Are you training yourself up for all the blessings and the promise land that God wants to give you?
God's word tells us that those with wisdom prosper. We need wisdom and leadership skills for ourselves first and then to give to others. God won't bring us others to lead until we first lead ourselves. God won't give us extraordinary opportunities until we are first prepared for them.
Joseph wasn't head of Egypt overnight--he was trained up first in his home, then Potiphar's home, then a prison, and then finally into head of all Egypt just under Pharaoh.
Moses wasn't prepared for his leadership until his he was in his 80s! And frankly his mindset was still a mess that he actually told God no 3 times! Thankfully, his mindset grew rapidly once he started listening intently to God and performing God's miracles in Egypt--Moses still gained instruction from God, and his father-in-law in how to be a leader (Exodus 18) as he was leading the Israelite's through the desert.
The women in the Bible like Judge Deborah, Sherah who built TWO cities, Joshua's daughter who asked for land and water for her land, Zeporah, Moses wife, who saved him and her son by being faithful to God's commandments, the proverbs 31 woman who owned a field and led servants, Eve who was instructed to rul over the works of God's hands, and so many more all prove that God wants women leading and empowered to follow His will and way.
Psalm 68:12 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
12 Adonai gives the command;
the women with the good news are a mighty army.
God mandates that all of us should be growing our leadership skills, wisdom, and knowledge of God's word and way! Yes, "just a mom" you are tasked to learn and grow and impart that information to your children and all those around you. What leadership books are you reading/listening to right now?
God wants all of us to learn and grow our leadership skills and wisdom in every area--finance, health, relationships, marriage, parenting, etc. What podcasts are helping you learn how to steward your finances or speak with kind courage or parent your children?
We can't pray for more wealth, health, happiness, etc., and still do the same things every day and expect God to answer our prayers. The abundance, the provisions, the blessings, the inheritance, the wealth, the opportunities, the promise land, all come by growing into them. The prosperity in every area comes first from making our soul and mind prosper (3 John 1:2). Are you praying God's word over your life and proclaiming His word into action?
Let's choose today to banish the television, the unhealthy relationships, the trash novels, and the stagnant mindset that keeps us stuck, uninterested in learning things outside our comfort zone or what we perceive isn't needed for our lives. Let's stop letting life happen to us instead of choosing how we spend our time and life.
Let's choose to dig into God's word every morning with eye to learn how to live and become the wise steward of our inheritance and blessings.
Let's choose to create an empowered mindset through the words of those that God has trained up ahead of us! They freely share their knowledge in podcasts, books, and more--why not let other's life experiences be a training manual.
Let's choose to become the miracles we keep begging God for instead of just waiting without preparation for extraordinary provisions that God will only give to those who are prepared to steward them.
