"Hast thou but one blessing?" Gen. 27.38
This was the cry of Esau to his father when he saw himself deprived of the blessing which was intended to have been his portion.
There was not the faintest shadow of a doubt about the importance of the blessing obtained.
There was not the slightest doubt about the importance of the blessing lost.
The theme runs all through the Bible starting with the creation of man.
What then is a blessing?
Blessing is when God draws near, and says that He will do in our lives.
Blessing is what takes us out of the sphere of the natural and into the larger realm of the spiritual.
Blessing lifts the life up to a New Level ...
up to new Resources ...
causes things to Come to Pass ...
opens a New Path ahead ...
and connects our lives to God.
More than a one time thing, blessing is an ongoing flow.
Blessing is our need, and without blessing our lives cannot rise above the limitations of earthly things.
This is what God would have us seek ...
Let us, from the depths of our being, say with Jacob, "I will not let Thee go, except Thou bless me." Gen 32.26
