The Fullness of the Blessing

God showers us with blessings daily. It is like a beacon of light zero-ing on us. It is not the blessings and grace that fall is us.

Here's a wonderful devotional about blessings from Joel and Victoria Osteen.


“I know that when I come to you, I will come in the full measure of the blessing of Christ”
(Romans 15:29, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

As believers in Jesus, we have what the Scripture calls “the blessing.” It’s God’s empowerment, His divine enablement to accomplish the dreams He’s given us. The blessing is simply God’s favor on your life. It’s when He’s breathing in your direction. When you walk in the blessing, you make good decisions. You see supernatural opportunities. The right people come across your path. You realize it’s not your own strength or ability; it’s the blessing of God on your life.

We’ve all experienced a measure of this blessing. We’ve seen a measure of God’s favor. But I believe there is a level of blessing that God wants to release in your life like nothing you’ve ever seen before. He wants you to experience the fullness of His blessing. That word “fullness” means “to the highest degree and the greatest measure.”

Today, I encourage you to open up your heart and mind up to receive the fullness, the highest and greatest measure, of His favor and blessing. Don’t settle where you are. Instead, look for ways to yield yourself more to Him and allow Him to work in your life to a greater degree. Through faith and patience, you will inherit His promises and enjoy the abundant life He has prepared for you!


Father God, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness. Thank You for increasing in me as I yield myself to You. Help me to be more like You, full of Your love and goodness as I receive Your favor and blessing upon my life today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen

Joel Osteen sure knows about 'Material Blessings...' but, I'm not so sure that he knows anything about Yahweh [God]. He never uses His name... worships on Sunday [Baal's Day]... keeps 'The Pagan Holy Days' [rather than Yahweh's Feasts]... teaches the concept of 'The Rapture'... and embraces 'The Gospel Of Greed'.

But, hey, what do I know? I only base my beliefs upon The Scriptures....
