Let’s see how The Blessing takes away toiling for increase.

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.

So, The Blessing of the Lord makes rich and brings wealth without sorrow and painful toil for it.

Let’s look at an example of when toiling for a living got started and it all got started with Adam.

Genesis 3:17-19 (KJV) And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;  18 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.

It says here, “in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life.”  So, in sorrow and toil man will work for his provision under the curse.  Toil came from the curse as a result of Adam’s sin and so we are not to toil because The Blessing was given to us to operate in our lives through Christ.

Say this, I will not toil any more in my life in Jesus Name. 

In Luke 5, Peter is fishing for he had a fishing business and he is toiling.

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.

Understand Peter was toiling under the curse but pay attention to Jesus is using Peter’s ship.  That’s an important element we need to focus on.

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. 5 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.

Jesus told Peter to let down the nets for a draught or a great increase, a lot of fish because Jesus knew what The Blessing would produce for Peter; but Peter, being a professional fisherman told the Lord he had toiled all night and caught nothing.  That means he labored under the same curse we just read in Genesis 3.  The toil was the result of the curse.  So, anybody that is toiling is laboring under the curse. We see he caught nothing under all that labor all night.  He worked the night shift and caught nothing.

Like Peter, there are many who bring home hard-earned money and have nothing to show for it.  They are still borrowing, trying to make ends meet.  That’s the system that is really under a curse and Christ Jesus has redeemed us from the curse.  Look at it.

Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

The Blessing, The Blessing of the Lord brings wealth, makes rich without any toil. 

Luke 5:5-9 (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. 8 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:

I want to tell you, when The Blessing takes over, you are guaranteed a draught or a running over measure. No matter what kind of business you are in, if God is in your boat, if Jesus is in your boat, you will have a running over harvest.  God is going to give you more then you can handle.  Say amen.

Peter got The Blessing to participate in his life when he sowed a seed which was his boat to Jesus to minister out of.  God doesn’t ever take something from you without giving something greater in return.  When Peter sowed his boat to Jesus’ ministry, he activated The Blessing and when he activated The Blessing, there was not one fish in that lake that refused to come to their nets; because The Blessing brings wealth.  That’s the power of The Blessing.  That’s what is going to distinguish the believer from anybody else; because in a time of financial famine you are still going to have your boat running over. You do that by participating in the ministry of Jesus.  So, find the ministry of Jesus and give and support it.  However God tells you to participate then participate.  Experiencing any kind of drought, you can break that and turn the drought into a draught as you activate The Blessing by your sowing.

I declare you will never be broke another day in your life.  You will never toil under the curse another day in your life because you have activated The Blessing by your giving. You have stopped toiling and instead you have put The Blessing to work that makes you rich, that brings wealth with no sorrow and no more toil.
