PM#0380 The Power of Blessing

The Power of Blessing

Have you ever thought about the power of blessing?

Frankly, many of us haven’t and perhaps a reason is that we have never fully experienced what a blessing can do for someone.

A blessing values a person, and that value comes through a meaningful touch or a spoken message.  As you impart a blessing to someone else, from your heart, you give them value, hope and encouragement, which can help them in the days ahead.

If you are not in the habit of blessing others, consider this prayer:

Father, help us to bless others from our heart in a way that gives them value, hope, and encouragement.  In Jesus Name, Amen.

Reflection questions:

Why does blessing show value?

Is a reason we don’t give a blessing is that we don’t believe our words actually work?

What does the Bible say?—Consider Romans 12:14—what might happen if we genuinely started blessing others?
