From the very start, our Lord blessed us to thrive on this earth with His approval.

Genesis 1 verse 27 - 28 put it this way;

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 

God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 

In blessing us, God confered on us His favor and approval to carry out our purpose and mission to be stewards over the earth. 

The book of Numbers 6 verse 24 - 26 expands on what blessing covers.

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.

Here, blessing comes with the Lord's protection, the Lord's favor, the lord's grace, the Lord's  attention and the Lord's peace.

These are gifts from God that we enjoy when we are following our Lord closely and pursuing the fulfillment of His will.

Ephesians 1 verse 3 expands  the scope to which we are blessed by our Lord where the blessing not only encompasses our earthly experience but extends to the substance of our spiritual lives which we experience in the heaveny realm. The passage goes like this.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.

The Lord blesses us far beyond what we can imagine or comprehend.

Let us always bless His holy name.
