5 Ways You May Be Blocking Your Own Blessings

blocked blessings

Did you know that you can be your worst enemy? Your thoughts, words, attitude, and actions all have the power to block your blessings. We’re all on a spiritual journey to peace and happiness and in order for us to get there we must first learn to do what’s best for us spiritually.

Here are 5 Ways You May Be Blocking Your Own Blessings :

Negativity-

Negative thoughts can become negative words, and we all know words have power. Negative thinking can keep us captive. We can unknowingly choke our own blessings with negative thoughts.

We tend to think that if we expect the worse then we will not be as disappointed if things do not turn out the way we had hoped.

It is time to stop speaking in a way that is inconsistent with what we want. Life is better when we keep a positive mindset.

Pride-

Pride hides, but humility seeks. Humility knows it has needs and looks to the One who supplies them. 

Humility confesses weakness. It’s been quite a long journey, but I am getting better at saying to God, I am weak in “this area” and I need your power to come and rest on me here.

Prides tricks us into thinking we can do it on our own.

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. – Proverbs 11:2

Holding on to the past-

Living in the past and refusing to move on only hinders growth and blessings. While you’re trying to hold on to a relationship that was never meant to be, God is trying to make room for the right one to come into your life.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. – 2 Corinthians 5:17

Guilt-

The devil’s favorite tool. He loves to remind us of our mistakes. Avoid the ‘If-Only Syndrome’. “If only I had done this… If only I hadn’t done that”.

Guilt only reminds us of who we were yesterday, not who we can be tomorrow. God forgives you, but you must learn to forgive yourself.

Fear-

Remember the old saying “You never know until you try” Sometimes we have our minds programmed for failure and we expect the worse before we even try.

Think of how many talents, dreams, goals, businesses, gifts, jobs, relationships and so much more go to the grave with people because of fear.

Fear is a roadblock stopping us from experiencing the life for which we were created to live.

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. – 2 Timothy 1:7

Prayer for today:

Lord, please help me to get out of my own way so I don’t miss out on the wonderful things You have for me. Help me to remember that Your promises are true and You have always and will always provide my every need. Your word says, that You will bless me, exceedingly, abundantly and above all that I can ask or think. Let this promise be a reminder to me when I feel like I am unworthy and undeserving. Lord, most importantly, help me to keep the faith so that I will always please You.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen!
