Richard’s first book, The Awesome Power of Blessing, took us to a place that changed our language and caused us to begin speaking Life. He encouraged us to use our God-given authority to bless others and ourselves, and to release the life-changing power of our tongues in order to give glory to God.
This new book, The Blessing Effect, is about the results of that knowledge and how we can take blessing to the next level. I have walked this message with Richard from the beginning as we have travelled and spoken together around the world. We have had many adventures, but a particular example springs to mind. Richard and I travelled to Fiji and ministered to a group of Bible students. After sharing the blessing message, we sent them out to put their new tools into practice. The students returned an hour later, full of joy and with 8 amazing testimonies. As a result, we were asked to bless the entire police force in the area, lined up on parade! So I can testify, from first-hand experience, that what you read here can dramatically change your world – as it has mine.
This book goes beyond the basics of blessing, showing us how God can heal our wounds. As we go through life, events and people can wound us on the inside, but the love and grace of God is there for each of us. My prayer is that you will take hold of your healing, believing the Psalmist when he said that our Heavenly Father ‘…forgives our iniquities and heals our diseases’ (Psalm 103:3). The testimonies contained in The Blessing Effect will encourage and inspire you; and, may I suggest, what God did for others He will do for you!
This is a small, A6 -size book, easy to read and simple to apply, but with mighty potential. Write down some action points as you read, then go and change your world.
