RECOGNIZING YOUR REAL SELF AS BLESSED (LESSON 1 OF 8)
Today as everyday is a special day in our lives. We rejoice in being alive to have the opportunity to BLESS and be BLESSED For the times in which we are living are very difficult. POVERTY is at an all time high, and the stress levels of the people is a major concern of our medical community. However, I can assure you that there is relief waiting for those who can learn to trust God for all their BLESSINGS. For God truly does want to BLESS this world and each person within it. For he assured us, that he would never put on us more than we can bear. Therefore, if we once again begin to look towards the hills from which all of our BLESSINGS flow, we can have a revival, and renewing of all our resources in this world.
This lesson is the right one for this time. We first taught it in February of this year, and since we have entered into the HOLIDAY SEASON, we felt the urgent need to take another look at the spirit of the many BLESSINGS that God has provided for us throughout the year. We encourage you to go back and study all eight lessons during this month and then share them with family and friends. We all need a blessing and you can be the one to provide that BLESSING to someone in need. Now let us begin first by viewing this short musical video by Laura, title “Laura’ Story—BLESSINGS,” and then we will continue with this lesson on the other side.
Therefore, make yourself comfortably at table of knowledge, because I want you to recognize as I teach you in these next few lessons your Real Self. A person that is truly Blessed beyond your wildest imagination, and how you are to use your Blessings to bless others. When you begin to recognize your Real Self in these lessons, it will respond to you as you first respond to it. When you recognize a friend, he are she responds to you and they will seek to bless you with their love and appreciation for the friendship you share.
Now listen to what the scriptures teaches us. “BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].” (Psalms 1:1-3). (AMP)
Now have you ever stopped to think of the meaning of the word to “bless”? What does it mean to you? You will find the dictionary definition of the word to “bless” is to “praise,” to “consecrate.”
It has even a deeper and more fascinating meaning, which you will discover for yourself through its use. It is the key word to personal power.
When you praise anyone, that person at once begins to unfold, as a rose unfolds and expands, because you are recognizing his Real Self. Recognition is the power of Blessing. Recognition is a law, and what you recognize will become quickened and active!
When you bless a person, a place, a thing, you recognize the Presence and Power of God within them, and your blessing calls forth the good into active manifestation. You tune yourself into the reality, or soul, of the person or thing.
This one act incurs a double good. You help the person or thing you bless, and you consciously align yourself with the Power of All Good. What can you think of that has a greater fascination and allure than to know that through a simple act of yours, you can release the hidden good in countless persons, and make many apparently troubled situations smooth and easy?
