Deuteronomy 30:19
[19] I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

God specially asked that heaven and earth have record because one affects the other.

Prayer is a legal petition to God. The Bible tells us what we have a legal right to expect from God. When we pray, we are calling for heaven’s will to be done in earth.

Sometimes when we get something new, like a new car or a new house, we might say, “isn’t this a blessing..”, but the blessing of God isn’t tangible. You may have gotten that thing as a byproduct of the blessing, but the blessing of God itself is spiritual. Its a supernatural endowment or enabling that comes on the life of a believer. God works through the blessing to manifest His will on earth.  We are blessed to be a blessing to others until all families of the earth have been blessed.

We don’t need to worry about what people say, or what circumstances look like naturally. If the blessing of the Lord is in you, and He wills that something happen in your life, nothing can stop it. Numbers 23 tells us that no man can curse who God has blessed.

Romans 8:1-2 talks about two laws that are always working simultaneously: the law of life/blessing and the law of death/cursing.

You choose which one you’ll operate in based off how you speak and act. Stop saying, “I’ll never pay off those student loans.” If you speak that way, you’ve just chosen to speak cursing over yourself.

We have to learn to speak blessing.We choose either blessing or cursing with our mouth.

Proverbs 18:21
[21] Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

God specifically wanted heaven and earth to record what we choose, life or death, blessing or cursing, because we give life to what we speak. Jesus said that when we confess Him before men, He would confess us before the angels. Why? because they are ministering spirits that are programed by God to respond to the Word of God. When we speak the Word of God in faith, angels move to bring it to pass.

Ask yourself, are your words giving heaven anything to advance?

Hebrews 1:14
Psalms 103:20

Ephesians 1:3 
[3] Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

We are heirs of Christ, meaning we are heirs to all spiritual blessings. It is possible to be an heir of something that you haven’t taken hold of. If you are not walking in a particular blessing, start getting a vision for your life based off the word of God. Speak and act in line with that vision.

Proverbs 10:22 
[22] The blessing of the Lord , it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
