30 Days Of…Day 19 – “Blessing Blockers”

 

On Sunday, the guest minister’s topic was “Blessing Blockers.” The topic caught my attention immediately. It made me think, how many times have I blocked blessings that I could have had. How many times could things have gone better if only I had not blocked blessings because I was afraid to step out on faith, or because I refused to forgive. How many times have I built up a wall that kept me in, but also didn’t allow God or anyone else in. If we don’t want to lose our blessings we must let go of those things that block us from receiving God’s best.

Blessing Blockers

  1. Fear (fear of the unknown)
  2. Unbelief (not believing God’s Word)
  3. Un-forgiveness (when we don’t forgive others don’t expect God to forgive us)
  4. Bitterness
  5. Anger
  6. Coveting (to wrongfully want something belonging to another)
  7. Deceit
  8. Gossip

This only a short list of things that can block us from receiving God’s best. We must give  all our blessing blockers to God and let Him handle them. Don’t let them take over and cause us not to be victorious.

Ephesians 3:20 (Amplified)

“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—”
