What You Bless Will Increase In Your Life

What You Bless Will Increase In Your Life by Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.com BlogOne of the governing principles I live by is that what you bless will increase in your life.

I first heard about this principle when I listened to a sermon by Chris Gore from Bethel Church in Redding, CA. It intrigued me because it made perfect spiritual sense. So I thought I’d try it out.

I started looking for things that I wanted to see increase in my life. I found lots of things that fit this category:

  • Friendships;
  • Finances;
  • Joy;
  • Peace;
  • Great feedback in the workplace, etc.

So wherever I’ve noticed things in my life that I want more of, I’ve been blessing them.

I don’t try to sound really spiritual when I bless something. I just say out loud (but with no one listening, so they won’t think I’ve lost it): 😉

  • “I bless that gift that my husband just gave me, and gifts increase in my life.”
  • “I bless that great conversation I just had with my friend, and I bless myself with more conversations just like that.”
  • “I bless that compliment I just got from my coworker, and I declare that I get more compliments all the time.” (Hey, you can never have too much encouragement!)

I also make sure to thank God for each of the things I want to see more of in my life, because thanksgiving brings increase as well.

And sure enough, it works! Whenever I thank God for something and speak a blessing over it, I see more of that thing–sometimes immediately!

Here’s why what you bless will increase in your life:

Blessing something is just like watering a flower. If you water a flower, it will bloom. When you speak blessings over the things you want to increase in your life, you are watering those things, and you will actually see them bloom!

The things I bless increase continually. This stuff really works.

Are you skeptical? Why don’t you try it and let the results speak for themselves? You have nothing to lose.

Here’s how to get started:

Identify several things you experienced during the last few days that you want to see increase in your life.

  • Bless them right now, out loud, just like I did above.
  • While you’re at it, thank God for them (because thanksgiving honors God and will also bring multiplication in your life).
  • Keep doing this as you notice more good things happening.

And you will see increase. It works every time, because blessing God’s work in your life honors Him and opens the conduit for Him to bless you more.

Have you ever noticed this principle working in your life? If so, please leave a comment and tell me your thoughts!

    Dear Jamie,
    It’s so true that when you Thank and Bless the things you’re lacking in, you see an increase.
    I’m an impatient driver. When I started giving way to other motorists for example, I get the same treatment from other drivers and almost at times instantly just round the corner..
    I am praying to own my own place and so I give to homeless by way of donations and I offer my home to 2 stray cats that would be hard to have forever homes bcoz they are 5years old and not kittens. I know they’re not humans but I can’t offer my home to strangers but I believe God sees the act of Faith. God is Good, He has given me more than I will ever deserve!!!
    It’s amazing how animals can teach humans humility and thankfulness. I’m their world and I want to emulate them and say Jesus is my world… Amen

    1. Wowwww thanls for the sharing.. i needed that one too …

    I have never tried this but as of to day, l Will can’t wait to see how God move, Thank you so much for the incourgment, you are a blessing from God.

  6. Hi Jamie – do you have a scripture/s that confirm this word of yours? Effective principal I am sure … But always appropriate to provide spiritual back up from the Word in confirmation thereof.

    Hi, I just discovered your blog and I really like it.

    It has been two years since I received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and since then Im on a journey and a path of hunger abour God, and his power to us his sons.

    About the power of blessing, can you please provide me with some scriptural references about it?
    I just “discovered” Luke 9:16 as some scriptural backup for the power of blessing, but if you can give me more backup I think it should be great!

    Thanks in advance!

    Greetings and blessings from México!

  9. Hi Jaime,

    Again, I say I am so blessed that God led me to your prophetic speaking and I am so thankful for that. I have experienced a closeness with God that I would not have experienced, had I not been brought to my knees or had the time and opportunity to be able to have 1 to 1 time with God the Father.

    I have prayed for those who hate me, I have prayed for the reversal of injustice, and I have prayed for the fullness of health not only in others, but myself as well. Undoubtedly, through Gods word, I have seen Gods work in all of these areas in such a short amount of time. I am so happy to feel his love in me that I pray that others can feel his abundant love as well.

    Jamie, thank you for being a turning point in my life, giving my steps direction, meaning and giving me more understanding to bring closer to a Father God. I have never met anyone who is authentic as you are in using Gods word and blessings. Some people search a lifetime and don’t find this. I will pass your teachings and blessing on to as many will listen! Thank you God for speaking to us all through Jamie and God bless you and your family Jamie!

    Spiritually Grateful,
    Amber
