Gen 12:1-3 “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. 2 I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Is 51:1-3 Consider the rock from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were mined. 2 Yes, think about Abraham and Sarah, who gave birth to you. Abraham was only one man when I called him. But when I blessed him, he became a great nation.”
2. GOD'S BLESSING IS ON MY CHILDREN BECAUSE OF ME

Gen 26:3,12-13 I will be with you and bless you. Just as I promised Abraham, your father. Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. 13 The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous
Gen 32:27-28 But he said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!” 27 So He said to him, “What is your name? He said, “Jacob.” 28 And He said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel

1 Sam 1:10,17 she was in bitterness, and prayed to the Lord and wept in anguish. 17 Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.”

Phil 3:13 one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead
