Galatians 3:13-14, ‘Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a

curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: that the blessing of

Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the

promise of the Spirit through faith.


What is my stake? How am I linked to the covenant? I am because I am born

again and I am redeemed. Redeemed from what? From the curse that came

upon Adam which was passed down to all generations after him. The result

of the curse is scarcity with lack and for anyone to work in the original

dominion which God gave to Adam before the fall, the curse has to be

removed. Why? This is because no one can have the combination of the

curse and the blessing together. One has to be removed for the other to rest.


This was exactly the mission of Christ, the burden Remover and yoke

Destroyer. He became the curse in your place, He removed it and nailed it to

the cross so that there would be room for the blessing to rest on you. The

blessing of Abraham came on you instead of the curse. The blessing is a

benefit of the covenant that God had with Abraham. Genesis 12 and 13.

Genesis 22:16-17 …because of the blessing, Abraham became very rich in

gold and silver which are the equivalent of money and that is financial

dominion. So, it is the blessing that makes rich and does not add sorrows to
22 Proverbs 10:22.
Breaking news! Money will not make you rich, it is the blessing of the Lord

and nothing more. So, if you want to enjoy true riches that endure, sorrow

free, trouble free and stress free, go after the blessing and not after the

money. Having money does not mean you have the blessing but having the

blessing and appropriating the blessing will ensure you have money more than

enough for you and much more to spread around. Say this out loud, ‘I have

the blessing of the Lord, and by this I am becoming rich in all things.’


How does the blessing make rich? The blessing is the anointing or the

endowment to prosper. It may be intangible and invisible but its effects are. It

is like the invisible coat of many colours of Joseph that is on you and makes

everything to work in your favour, just like it did for Joseph. Even when the

physical coat was removed by his brothers, the invisible coat was still on him

and was making things to work for him such that every where he found

himself, the blessing pushed him to the top.


In Potiphar’s house, he became the head servant because he possessed wisdom to manage affairs of the house, administrative skills and his loyalty was unquestionable until he was

framed up and accused wrongly. In the prison, he came on top because of these skills and in addition, because of the gifts of dreams and interpretation of dreams. All these skills, gifts and talents are as a result of the blessing.

Galatians 3:14

14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we

might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.


If you look at the above Scripture, you will observe that the receiving of the

promise of the Spirit through faith can only be actualized after we have

received the blessing. The reason you are filled with the Holy Spirit today is

because the curse has been removed and you have the blessing. Having the

Holy Spirit is having the power, the spirit of knowledge, wisdom and

understanding. Having the Holy Spirit is having access to the mind of God.

Having the Holy Spirit is having the same ability that Jesus had when He was

here. He knew what to do when He was faced with a financial challenge. He

knew the right buttons to press to make things happen. The Scripture says in

1 Corinthians 2:12 – Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but

the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given

to us of God.


Since you have moved from curse to blessing, you have the Spirit of God to

direct and lead you into all that God has reserved for you to prosper, you have

the Spirit to tell you what to do and when to move. Friend, this is awesome!

The Bible says in Ephesians 1:3 – Blessed [be] the God and Father of our

Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly

[places] in Christ: if the blessing is in the spiritual realm, then we need to

bring it into the physical realm and that can only be done by the Spirit. So,

what does the blessing do? It gives room for the Spirit to rest upon you and

by the Spirit, you have access to heavenly treasures and riches.


Questions for Reflection:

  • Do you know that your salvation is what qualifies you for the blessing?
  • Do you know that God is concerned about your finances?
