And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
(Genesis 1:28)


The Blessing of the Lord can be defined in several ways: as the covenant of God that overrides the curse; the anointing of God through which divine favor flows; or the power of God to produce. In other words, The Blessing is the presence and power of God in a person’s life that enables them to prosper in every area of their life, regardless of natural circumstances.

The word blessing is from the Hebrew root word bless or barak which means “to invoke divine favor, to empower, to prosper, or to make successful.”1 It means an “empowerment of success.” Every believer has access to the power and wisdom that will override the curse through faith in The Blessing of the Lord.

The Blessing was first given to Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. God transferred to them the same power and ability He used to create this earth so that they could continue the work of creation and make every place on the earth just like the garden of Eden. Eden was a copy of heaven.

This Blessing on Adam carried the same power that God used to create all matter. It was given to Adam to help mankind fulfill the mission and plan of filling the earth with the Garden. God’s plan was for mankind to replicate the Garden over the whole earth and to live in the garden of Eden all of their days. With The Blessing, you can take the worst place on earth and turn it into heaven on earth (Eden) without having to toil and struggle to do it.

With The Blessing you are empowered to prosper!


Dear God, Thank you, Father, for Your divine empowerment on my life through Christ to create and bring change into this world. Thank you for giving me access to the power and wisdom that will override the curse through my faith in The Blessing of the Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
