Numbers 23:8 “How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?”
The blessing of the Lord is more powerful than anything that can stand against you. It is your empowerment to prosper in every area of your life. It doesn’t matter how many people want to take a stand against you, once you’re blessed, the manifestations will be evident. In Numbers 23, we see a story of the blessedness of Israel. Here Balak saw that it was not possible to defeat Israel, though they were a small nation then, he recognized that there was something that was working in their favor. So he requested that Balaam come put a curse on Israel, knowing that with the curse released, he will have an edge over them and will then be able to defeat Israel. However the force of the blessing is so strong and it overrules every opinion, hatred and contrariness of men. Every time Balaam tried to put the curse on Israel, he found himself speaking blessings over them instead. Balaam eventually concludes “No magic spells can bind Jacob, no incantations can hold back Israel.” Num.23:23
That’s the story of those whom God has blessed. Every man in Christ Jesus is a partaker of the blessing, and that means that nothing in life can hold you back. It’s now up to you if you choose to say your shortcomings are as a result of circumstances. You should stand against it, and keep pressing on because you are aware of the force of the blessing that is now working for you. So when people try to stand against you, you choose a stand in the blessing. You choose to speak positively, you choose to act lovingly because you know their attitude has no power over you, because you are blessed!
