How to Get to the Top of Mount Blessing
1 Cor 2:9
9 But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
It is the contrary to the Nature and Character of God NOT to BLESS! And Everyone wants to be blessed!
So why are we not blessed???
On the edge of the Land of Promise, after all the disobedience, which brought about all the wandering, which left a trail of corpses scattered over the wilderness, God promised blessing…
1 If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.
2 All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God:
3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.
4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock-- the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.
EVEN GROCERY BLESSING
5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.
6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
7 The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.
BLESSING BLANKET STATEMENTS:

C- We will have as little as we are satisfied with!
1) You have to GET UP to go up!
If we were already doing what we already knew, we’d already be there! Decisions are required!
2) You have to GROW UP to go up!
Mountain climbing is for the mature! Discipline is required!
3) You have to GIVE UP to go up!
Churches, State organizations, as well as individuals, all stop growing when the price gets to high! Donations are required. (Jug story)
4) You have to GATHER UP to go up!
Blessings multiply when shared! No mountain of any significance was ever conquered by one person! We really do better together!
