The Spirit itself bares witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
When you obey God’s word and aim to be in the will of God it opens you up for God to pour out His blessing on your life! How many of you when your spouse, friends, children or other loved ones are working at pleasing you and loving you do you turn around and decide that as great as that is you just have no desire to bless them in any way? We would have to be pretty hateful to be that way. God loves us so much more than we are capable of loving anyone why would He not want to bless you in you life as well.
I am not saying that all our life is going to just be blessing on top of blessing, that won’t happen until Heaven but I am saying that God does desire to bless you because you are a child of God! We have troubles in our lives to make us stronger but God wants more than that for you!
Remember in the Old Testament when people prayed they prayed to the God of Abraham. They figured that Abraham was so successful and had so much favor that if they could just get to his God then everything would be alright. God wants you to be an example, so talented, so blessed and so sharp that when other people see you they want what you have. If you are down and out and lost in your troubles with no hope like the rest of the world then why would anyone want what you have?
It is not because of who you are that God wants to bless you, it is because of who’s you are! You are a child of the most High God! Remember that as you go through your day or through a tough time in your life, God wants to bring you through and He wants to bless your life.
