Only This Blocks your Blessings
Faith is the only way to receive blessings. There is only one thing that blocks your blessings. Find out what that is in this article.
Have you ever heard a teaching that if you refuse to forgive someone, you can be blocking your own blessings?
This is false—unforgiveness is not what stops the blessing. It’s your unbelief, which is demonstrated in your unforgiveness.
When a person refuses to forgive someone even though Jesus asked us to forgive one another just as He has already forgiven us, he is not fully trusting the Lord.
He is still insisting in his own ways, instead of placing faith in Jesus—like somehow if he forgives the offender, that person will get away scot free and Jesus won’t do anything about it.
The underlying unbelief is what blocks the person’s blessings. He is not able to receive because he is not willing to just surrender to Jesus and believe.
What about sin? Can sin block your blessings? No they can’t, but the unbelief produced by the condemnation and sin consciousness can cause one to feel unworthy to receive God’s blessings—it is a self-imposed stumbling block to faith.
“You husbands, in the same way, live with your wives according to knowledge, giving honor to the woman, as to the weaker vessel, as being also joint heirs of the grace of life; that your prayers may not be hindered.” (1 Peter 3:7 WEB)
In the verse above, we see clearly that treating your wife badly can become a hindrance to your prayers.
A man who beats his wife can’t boldly stand before Jesus to receive every blessing.
His conscience will keep nagging to disqualify him from every blessing.
That’s how sinning produces unbelief which blocks your blessings.
