Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them… – Gen 1:27-28

God loves you. He created you to bless you. The very first thing God did to man after creating him was to bless him! His desire towards you and me has not changed. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb 13:8). 

Scripture says the express purpose of your existence is for God to enjoy your presence. He formed you spend time with you, “…walking in the garden in the cool of the day” (Gen 3:8). Satan interfered, and sin separated you from God’s presence; but the Cross of Jesus Christ means God welcomes you back into His presence with open arms!

God wants to bless you. His intentions have not changed. He created you and blessed you, and His primary goal every single day of your life is to see you blessed! The best thing you can do is partner with Him: to co-labor with God by heeding His word. As you seek His face and read His word, every obstacle to the state of blessedness He desires for you will simply dissolve.

You are blessed! Now go out and bless others!


Father, thank You for blessing me! I know Your heart is – and has always been – to bless me, because I am your child. I cancel the work of the enemy in my life, in Jesus’ name; and I invite You to move in every area of my life, starting today!
