Gifts of Christmas: Gift No. 24 ~ Blessing
My gift to you is: Blessing
From Luke 1:45 - Blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.
My gift to you today, my child, is blessing. My death and resurrection, my ascension, my seating at the right hand of the Father, are all for your blessing. As your advocate, I appeal to the Father for blessing upon blessing for you. Are you fully aware of what the New Grace Covenant contract provides for you? You must know, for knowing is the foundation of believing. Then you must believe. Zacharias did not believe what was spoken over him. As a result, he was not able to speak until his son John was born. Anyone who remains in unbelief will be ineffective in putting voice to their covenant and the flow of blessing will be hindered. On the other hand, Mary believed the word spoken over her, and proclaimed, "Blessed am I among women". You must then be more like Mary. You must know my promises, believe them, profess them, and then act on them for that opens the way to blessing. I know it is often a struggle for you and this is not the way I designed the world to be. Before Adam rejected my word, the garden provided all blessings in full abundance. But the decision to be his own provider changed everything for Adam and all his children after him. I have sent a Savior to you, who is Christ the Lord. I have ended the curse of that old race and I have started a new race of blessed believers. Those who believe have a new covenant of blessing with a very rich Father and it is released as they align themselves with Me.
Oh, the blessings I have in store for you. If you will believe them this year, they are yours. There is still a struggle for you in this fallen world. There are powers who do not want you to receive. Rise my child! Rise up and believe! Rise up and command the blessings. Speak against the powers that resist. Come to my throne room and boldly request all that is yours and you will have all you need. Only know and believe and I will do the work as you rest in the belief that I desire to bless you, blessing upon blessing forevermore.
What will you believe about your grace covenant this year?

The Christmas season is so busy with holiday activities on top of regular jobs, family and household duties. It is so easy for the real reason for the season to get lost in the frenzy. If your devotional life takes a dive during the holidays, fret not! Jesus has a personal word for you that will make this Christmas season spiritually vibrant.
These daily, three minute devotional readings are based on the events that took place in the lives of people around Jesus at the time of His conception and birth; Mary, Joseph, Zacharias and Elizabeth. Through these simple readings, new light springs forth from common words revealing powerful truths that will release the power of Jesus’ birth into your family, business, and your whole life all year long.
Never has one event had so much impact on the nature of man and the course of human events, from individual lives to whole of societal structures. Never has one event rewritten the lives and times of so many people on our planet. Are there personal truths just for you, hidden in these familiar passages, that could release the same earth shaking, life changing power of Jesus’ birth into your life? I believe the answer is a resounding "YES"!
