However here are the 4 things God want you to do before he will bless you.
1 Before God Will Bless You, He Wants You to Be Willing to Give Up the Thing You Want the Most.
Genesis 22:1 "Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.
For God to bless you he must test your faith over that thing you cherish so much, so that he will know whether you cherish the gift more than the giver. God have promise Abraham and Sarah his wife a child, and after visiting them with the promise child, of course Abraham must love Isaac so dearly, God have to test his faith to see whether Abraham loves the gift more than the giver. What's that thing you cherish so much. It could be you want a relationship, money, breakthrough or you want to get marry or anything at all that matters to you. Do you know that, that thing could be an idol in your heart, that you are worshipping more than God? And for God to bless you, you must be tested to let go of that thing that you cherish so much, not that those things are not good but God doesn't want you to worship or have any idol in your heart. That's why he must test you and flush them out of your heart before he even grant you those desires you are desiring. Therefore let go of those things you withhold or regards in your heart, and you will experience God's blessings tremendously in your life. Here is what he said to Abraham.
Genesis 22:16 -17. "And said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son. Blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.
2 Before God Will Bless You, He Wants You to Have a Healthy Fear of the Lord.
Here's what the book of Ecclesiastes chapter 12:13-14 says. "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil."
For God to bless you, you must fear he, reference him as your lord, the book of Proverbs says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Your duty as a man is to fear this God more than the way you fear soldiers or powerful earthly rulers. If you really fear he and regards him as your lord and judge over your life, you must be honest in all what you do, you will keep his commandments with a trembling heart. Here's what he said to Abraham in Genesis 22:12 . "And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.
3 Before God Will Bless You, He Wants You to Listen for His Voice and Obey His Voice.
Obedient is necessary and important if you really want God's blessings in your life, the Bible says if you are obedient and willing, you will eat the fruit of the land. Dear readers make your mind ready to serve this great God with an obedient heart, always focus on he and take instructions from him as a junior official taken order from senior colleagues. Rebellious and stiffheart isn't good. Lack of obedient made God to reject King Saul. You must pay obeisance to this awesome awesomely God if you really want his blessings in your life. Look at what he said to Abraham in Genesis 22:17-18.
Blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.
4 Before God Will Bless You, He Wants You to Have the Faith to Believe He Can Raise What Is Dead to Life.
For God to bless you, you must have faith and believe that he will do that thing you are desiring of him, look at what James 1:6-8 says, "But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double minded man, unstable in all his ways.
To unlock God's blessings and favour, learn how to believe on his promises without doubt, cause a doubter can't please God.
Hebrews 11:17-19. "By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, “In Isaac your seed shall be called,” concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.
