Keeping the blessings of God in your life

The blessings of the Lord have been manifold upon us both as individuals and as a church of God.  Now that the Lord has blessed you in one way or the order, you need to keep that blessings that He has given to you, it may be in prosperity, health, education or any other way. What is important is that you need to keep that same blessing which you have received from the Lord.
Your desire and prayer should be to do not lose that blessings of  God. You should endeavor to make these blessings to increase more and more rather than decrease. Having experienced miracles, provision, salvation and deliverance, there is  need for continuity. Having sung the song of praise, we want to keep the deliverance. Having eaten Heaven’s bread, we do not want to enter into a period of spiritual dryness. Appearing before God regularly in services guarantees sustained blessings and
spiritual progress – from salvation to security, healing to health, deliverance to dominion and sanctification to steadfastness, baptism of the Holy Ghost to the gifts of the Holy Ghost, miracles to signs and wonders.
There is a fellowship with the Father, with the Son Jesus Christ and with the true believers who have the same blessing of salvation and sonship with you.  When you came to Jesus, you came to the fellowship “with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ” through repentance. To get the abundant blessing of God in your life, you need regular fellowship with the Lord and to continue in fellowship with other believers of like precious faith. There is need for continuity in the life of a Christian. You need to abide in the Lord and to spend quality time with Him in prayer and study of His word. Sins should not be seen in your life anymore. God wants you to grow in Him. To grow in Him, you MUST devote yourself totally to the word of God –read, meditate on practice, preach and defend the word of God.
To keep the blessings, you need:

1.       Daily observation of quite time every morning
2.       Daily special time for deep communion with God,
3.       Quite meditation on the word of God,
4.       Regular worship with the people of God,
5.       A conscious daily walk with the Lord,
6.       Constant practice of taking every problem to God in prayer,
7.       Decision and determination to walk by faith. When you come to the presence of the Lord, you will find the fullness of joy, peace, blessing and satisfaction. You can live in such a spiritual realm where God’s blessings flow continuously in your life.

But remember that Christians get into spiritual famine when they leave the company of the children of God, abundant prayer and consecration, and mix up with the christless community.
The goodness and blessing of some people soon vanish “as a morning cloud and as the early dew” because they do not continue in fellowship with the Lord. When you get mixed up with the world, your strength will be devoured. You will not be a balanced Christian. When you get so busy that there is no time to read the Bible and fellowship with the people of God, you lose the grace of God and the power of God in your life. You can be so busy spiritually to the point of not being able totake care of your spiritual life. When little, little ‘foxes’ of lie, hypocrisy, pilfering and dishonesty come  into your life unchecked, those thing tale you back into the  world. The careless, prayerless life separates him from the source of the living waters. He lives without joy or freshness; there is spiritual dryness as the refreshing presence of Christ is withdrawn from him. He becomes a shallow shell without the divine unction and treasure coming from heaven.
He remembers the days of blessings and a dream that are gone. In vain, he seeks the presence of the Lord and the saints do enter into an experience of spiritual wilderness, famine and dryness. To escape such experience, you MUST forsake the christless and come to the true fellowship with true Christians.
