The Blessings of Abraham?

Hello peeps! It's been a while since I've taken time to collect my thoughts here. I was just thinking this morning about the blessings of Abe and how we all seem to chase them in some form or fashion. What I mean is that success, money, true love, and a "cool life" are what we all seem to want. Many of us have blindly placed our faith in these things hoping and believing that they hold some key to happiness. I won't dare tell you that these "things" cannot influence happiness, but they are not what you think either if that's the stream you're swimming in.
Back to Abe. Many peeps in the "prosperity wing" believe that we are entitled to the blessings of Abe. I believe that they are correct in that we should expect God's blessing on us as His children. I do however want to point you to the fact that for Abe to receive the blessings of Abraham he had to "go". In Gen chapt 12 he's clearly instructed to leave his country, his peeps, and his father's house to go to a land that God would show him. God called Abe to leave all that was familiar; his friends, most of his fam, and all of the safety trappings that we've all grown accustomed to. Not only go away but go to some unknown destiny. Abe was asked to give up wordly hopes and things that the human heart desires for God's sake.
I'll tell you this, you may indeed have claim to the blessings of Abe. That being said the route to receiving them is like his. Surrender. Go. Give up wordly hopes and the things that the human heart desires.
Faith in God for the blessings of Abe are just like all of the other gifts of God. By grace through faith? Certainly, but also with surrender, obedience, and sacrifice.
I'm finished for now. I welcome your commentary as always and would love to answer your questions. God bless and keep you in His perfect peace. Holla!
