“Jumpstart your blessings”
Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
Norley Tran – Everything heaven itself enjoys!
GOD PREDISTINED US TO BE BLESSED!
4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.
GOD IS A GOOD OF MIRACLES BUT HE IS ALSO A GOD OF BLESSINGS
YOU STAY IN THE SUPERNATURAL BY STAYING IN FAITH.
GOD LOVES TO DO THE MIRACULOUS FOR HIS PEOPLE BUT A MIRACLE IS NEVER THE ULTIMATE WITH GOD.
Ex. GOD DELIEVERING ISRAEL
THE MIRACULOUS WAS THE JUMP START TO GET THEM INTO THE PROMISE LAND
JUMPSTARTS HELP US GET INTO WHERE GOD WANTS US.
Ex. HANNAH… GOD GAVE HER A CHILD – IT WAS A MIRACLE.
Ex. GOD TOLD ABRAHAM, “I WILL BLESS YOU AND BLESS YOUR SEED”
MIRACLES USUALLY COME BY ONES, BLESSINGS CAN’T BE SINGLE
ISAAC ENTERED RIGHT INTO THE BLESSING OF HIS FATHER. (NOT MIRACLE)
YOU CAN’T PASS ON THE MIRACLES BUT YOU CAN PASS ON BLESSINGS
JACOB – ASKED FOR A BLESSING NOT A MIRACLE!
