Proverbs 10:22 (KJV) The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

Proverbs 10:22 (NIV) The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.

Let’s see an example of that, and where this whole thing of painful toil with sorrow got started.

Genesis 3:17 (AMP) And to Adam He said, Because you have listened and given heed to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it, the ground is under a curse because of you; in sorrow and toil shall you eat (of the fruits) of it all the days of your life

Genesis 3:18-19 (KJV) Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

In sorrow and painful toil shall you eat of the fruits of it all the days of your life.  So, we see that toil came from the curse released to all mankind through the sin of Adam in the Garden of Eden. So, even though this curse still operates and causes mankind to toil for their provision, we are not supposed to toil who live under the redemption work of Christ which is The Blessing of which there is no toil.

Say this, I will not toil for provision any longer in my life, in Jesus Name.

Again, we are not to toil for our provision under the curse that came with Adam’s sin.

Say, I am not to toil under the curse for my provision.

Let’s look in Luke 5 where Peter has a fishing business and Peter is toiling.  Remember we said that toil is under the curse so Peter is toiling under the curse because he has the belief of toiling for his living or provision but that is about to change just like it is about to change for you and the majority of the church.

Luke 5:1-3 (KJV) And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.

Jesus is using Peter’s ship to minister to the people the Word of the Kingdom of God and how it operates, and Jesus is about to demonstrate how the Kingdom works under The Blessing in Peter’s fishing business.

Luke 5:4 (KJV) Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

The word “draught” means “a big catch”.

Luke 5:5 (KJV) And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: …

That meant that Peter was toiling under the curse that came with Adam’s sin in the Garden of Eden.  Toil was the result of the curse.  Peter didn’t know any better.  He didn’t know he was toiling for a living under the curse that came as a result of Adam’s original sin in the Garden of Eden.  So it is with many even in the Church that is toiling for increase under this same curse.

Peter said he had “taken nothing” while toiling under the curse.  Peter was working the night shift.  Lots of God’s people today are toiling under the same curse doing the night shift, the day shift and overtime and long hours and producing nothing.  Peter has toiled all night long and has caught not even one fish for his fishing business.  That’s going to hurt his business working under the curse and taking nothing. That’s what is happening with those today who toil under the curse, taking nothing home.

Peter toiled all night and caught nothing.  I know this speaks of many in the Church today. How many bring home hard-earned money and have nothing to show for it? Many in the Church are still having to borrow and are trying to make ends meet as a result of toiling under the curse. Well that’s the cursed Babylonian system out here that operates without the God factor and without The Blessing of the Lord.  Anyone who works and expects increase under that system is working under the curse that produces nothing or little to nothing.  The very Good News is Christ has redeemed you from the curse of toiling for a living or toiling for your provision all your live long days on the earth.

Galatians 3:13-14 (AMP) Christ purchased our freedom (redeeming us)
from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified); 14 To the end that through [their receiving] Christ Jesus, the blessing [promised] to Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, …

Put your name in that scripture because that is talking to every born-again child of God in Christ Jesus.  Jesus redeemed you, paid the price for you to be free from this curse of painful toil and sorrow and producing nothing.

The Blessing.  Say, The Blessing.  The Blessing of the LORD brings wealth, makes rich without any toil.  So, get rid of toil in your mind if you are going to live under The Blessing.  Find some Blessing scriptures, meditate them and declare them over your life and over your financial increase without painful toil and sorrow.

Luke 5:5-7 (KJV) And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.  

See, under the Blessing you will be able not only to be blessed with increase more and more and wealth and riches without toil but The Blessing also tells you what to do to increase as we see when Jesus told Peter what to do, “let down the nets for a draught” or for a great catch. Holy Spirit and angels of God are here to do just that. Peter got instruction because he believed the word of the Lord and obeyed.

Luke 5:8-9 (KJV) When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. 9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:

When The Blessing takes over your finances, you are guaranteed a draught, a great increase.  That’s why you need to have more faith in The Blessing then you do working a job for a living and toiling all of your days.  When The Blessing takes over, you are guaranteed to have a running over measure. Just the opposite of bringing home hard-earned money and have nothing to show for it.  No matter what business you are in or what kind of a job you have, if God is in your boat, if Jesus is in your boat, if The Blessing is in your boat, you will have a running over harvest.  God is going to give you even more then you can handle.  Please say amen to that.

With Peter, once The Blessing got in there, how did he get The Blessing to operate in his life?  Peter sowed a seed which was his boat so Jesus could use his boat to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.  Peter sowed his boat into Jesus’ ministry.  In the Kingdom of God, God doesn’t take something from you without giving it back and multiplied.  When Peter sowed his boat into Jesus ministry, he activated The Blessing and remember The Blessing maketh rich or in this case it increased Peter’s fishing business with a large increase of fish.  When Peter activated that Blessing, I am convinced there was not one fish in that lake that did not come to those nets.  Not one fish refused to come to the nets because The Blessing brings wealth.  That is the power of The Blessing. 

That same Blessing is going to distinguish the believer from everyone else today; because in a time of famine you are still going to have your boat run over or your business producing wealth and increase.  How do you do it?  You have to participate in the ministry of Jesus and sow what you have so the ministry prospers first.  So, find you a ministry of Jesus the Lord speaks to you to sow into and do it promptly because the supernatural requires every time obedience on your part.  How ever God tells you to participate then participate.  If you are experiencing any kind of drought, you can break that and turn the drought into a draught, a large increase.  This is how you will never be broke another day in your life.  Peter proved that to you that day when his fishing business was experiencing a drought and sowing his boat changed all that and his business experienced a draught or great increase.  This is the time for the Blessing to operate in your life as you sow your seed in obedience to God’s Blessing principle and spiritual law.

Father, I thank you for The Blessing of the Lord that makes this one rich without painful toil.  Now as they sow their seed into your Kingdom by your instruction, I set my faith in agreement with your Word and with them The Blessing will make them receive a draught, a large increase even in a time of drought.  The Blessing is bringing them out of the drought and into the draught of great increase more and more.  Thank you, Father in Jesus Name we believe, we receive it now.
