The Blessing




This is  excerpt from  Metropolitan Senior Pastor of House on The Rock, Pastor Paul Adefarasin on Friday 28/10/2016 in Port Harcourt.


The blessing you have is not as a result of your present condition but because of your position as a child of God. Being blessed then, is not determined by what you are going through, but as a result of who you are in Christ Jesus.

As we see in the text, we are like seeds that are planted on fertile ground that grow to become a tree that brings forth it’s fruit is its season. The potential of a seed is determined not only by the quality, but the land upon which the seed is sown.

The indication that we are blessed is evidenced in the incorruptible seed of the Word of God that lives and dwells with you and in you forever.
There is a favor and a sovereign Grace that God gives to His own. He blesses us even when we do not expect Him to. The enemy may try to afflict you with a machinery of circumstances and situations but you are blessed and there is nothing the devil can do about it.

It is what you are conscious of that you will bear fruit for. Don’t be overwhelmed by your situation that you do not notice your blessings. Don’t think you will get into God’s Favour only when He gets rid of your problems.

You are blessed to be fruitful. You are blessed to become wealthy. You are blessed to have and not borrow! The devil is a liar. In spite of all you are going through, you are still blessed.

How Do You Preserve The Grace:


1. Do not walk in the counsel of the ungodly:
Ungodliness is not the exclusive preserve of the immoral because the devil also goes to church. The counsel of the ungodly is also in church. It includes church people who do not understand or align with God's purpose for your life (Matthew 16:23). Be careful who has your ear because they can shape your life. Change your old circles that can’t take you anywhere. Give your ear to the persons who have God's plan for your life. The circle you grew up with may not be the circle who will take you to where you need to go.

2. Don’t stand in the way of sinners:
Clean it all up. Clean up your mouth because too many believers cancel out what God is doing for them by how they talk. Clean up your ways, and walk in the ways of God. Clean up your mind and renew it with the Word of God. Most times we have great stages but not great lives. But Jesus didn’t come to give us great churches but to give us great lives. As you move up, you ought to enjoy life.

3. Do not sit with scornful:
You cannot afford to be bitter. You ought to become better. Progressive people do not live in yesterday. Forget all the seasons that are behind and keep pressing forward. The enemy cannot stop your destiny and so he tries to stop you from getting to your destiny. Keep moving. Bitter people live in yesterday because they have no hope for tomorrow. As a result they become vengeful and always want to get even. But don’t hold on to a grudge. Forgive and forget. Keep moving. Let go and let God. Rolling stones gather no loss.

You have to be planted and rooted in something special. You must be rooted in the Faith. You must be rooted in Christ. You must be rooted and grounded in the things listed in ROMANS 8:28. As long as you are called to His purpose, you have hope for the future.
You have to give God His while and when you do, all the Hell you are going through will turn around and work together for your good. The things you think will kill will be what will revive you.
Until your trouble Is plenty, your blessing is not about to manifest. Something is about to change in your life.

Fruitfulness does not come to people who cannot stand.

Sometimes your purpose incarcerates you. But, when they have succeeded in de-robing you, God dresses you up in His Glory.

The blessing is not in the stuff you have, it is not in your condition but in your position. They may take everything from you, but you are still blessed! Being blessed is not determined by what you are going through but as a result of who you are in Christ.

There is a favor and a Grace that God gives to His own.

There's a sovereign Grace in the house. It's not normal, we were planted while we thought we were buried. There's a difference between what an undertaker does and what a farmer does. The farmer plants on a nutritious soil, while the undertaker just buries on any kind of soil.
To be blessed cannot be determined by your circumstances. You can be blessed in the midst of ungodliness. You can be blessed even in your moments of sorrow. You can be in your worst times and in your best times at the same time. Don’t be overwhelmed by your situation that you do not notice your blessing.

An enemy is not necessarily a personality. It may be a machinery of circumstances and situations. But you are still blessed and there is nothing the devil can do about you.
The indication of being blessed is in the incorruptible seed of the Word of God that lives and dwells with you and in you forever.
You are blessed to be fruitful. You are blessed to become wealthy. You are blessed to have and not borrow!
It is what you are conscious of that you will bear fruit for. When God gets rid of my problem, then I will step into God's favor. The devil is a liar. Inspite of all you are going through, you are still blessed.

The presence of predicament does not prevent you from prevailing. The presence of a test does not prevent you from having a testimony.

There can't be real power without pain, no trial without tribulation, no beauty without ashes, no rising up without a falling down. The fire is never as strong as the Grace that is upon you. God is the traffic warden that determines what troubles that come into your life at every point in time. But if you can't handle it, He won’t give it to you. That means that whatever trouble you have, you can handle it. If it showed up at your front door, then you can handle it.

Some of the greatest up-lifters that God brings to your life are camouflaged as troubles. He reserves the blessing in the trouble that he knew you can survive.
When you wake up in the morning, look into the mirror and say, "I am blessed!". You have to say it to yourself because there is a territory of principalities that invoke trouble in your life but the only way you win is to take total control by declaring that you are seated in heaven far above all principalities and powers. Say it with deep conviction so the devil knows.
There is a Grace on your life.

An agreement is not evidenced by what you say but with how much conviction you say it.
The ability to survive what others died in is often a great sign that you are alive (graced). It then means that God is keeping you alive for a reason.

More grief will bring more glory. More pain will bring more power.
It is not a matter of condition; it is an issue of position. You are a child of God. You have a father who loves you.When you walk in the knowledge of God's love, you are invincible.
Jesus did not only die for the Church or for Israel, He died for every single one of us.
Revelation 3:5 (kjv)

5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
You are a child of glory, You are a child of majesty, You are a child of blessing.

The Grace must be protected. You don’t need to bring everybody into it. You do not need to tell everybody what you can do with it. If you try bringing people into a choice that they do not have they will try to jeopardise it. The Grace you have was not given to all other people.
Don’t let them see you arrive.
