Many believers do not appreciate the power and benefit of God's blessing and how it produces supernatural results. When we receive God's blessing in our lives, things work out better for us and for the people around us. With God's blessing on us people often show us unexpected, and undeserved favor. In the Old Testament people valued the blessing so much that they lied and schemed to get it. Today that blessing of God is already ours by right of inheritance in Christ. Even so, we have a responsibility to value that blessing and receive it. God won't force His blessing on those who, like Esau, despise it and don't place value it. Value that blessing. Let God know how much you appreciate it, and look for the blessing to show up in your life. Then thank God for His blessings! From a practical perspective, perhaps the best way to be blessed in everything you do is to do what God's Word tells you to do. When you shift from being a hearer only of the Word to actually doing it, the Bible says you will be blessed in what you do!
But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.— James 1:25 (NKJV)
