“By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come. By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and worshiped, leaning on the top of his staff” (Hebrews 11:20-21).
The powerful spiritual principle here is that these patriarchs knew their responsibility to prophetically pronounce blessings on the next generations. Scripture is unequivocal that the capacity to bless and to prophesy belongs to every believer (see 1 Cor. 14:1; Rom 12:14). Every wise leader blesses his or her successors. Every wise biological or spiritual parent blesses his or her offspring. Today [Day 8], pronounce a prophetic blessing over your children, protégés, and over your family, flock, ministry or LG. Declare God’s favour, protection, revelation, wisdom and prosperity over all those under your influence or leadership. Do it by faith. Be a professional and prolific “blesser”!
