And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. Gen 1:28-30 KJV
The first pronouncement towards man that God created was the word of blessings. God gave us His own meaning of blessing as being
- Be fruitful
- Replenish the earth
- Have dominion
- I have given you every herb… animals
Blessings are also divine release or injunction from the mouth of a superior especially prophets to the people of God or from father to son like the below scripture where Isaac blessed Jacob
And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field which the LORD hath blessed: Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine: Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother’s sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee. Gen 27:28-29
God is our divine Father and he wishes to bless us even more than Isaac blessed his son Jacob. Blessings of dew [prosperity], plenty of coin [sustenance], wine [revelation knowledge] and dominion over siblings come upon you now. Receive now in Jesus Name

The word of God stated categorically that we have been blessed with spiritual blessings, receive now spiritual blessings heaped upon spiritual blessings IJN
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Eph. 1:3 KJV
Every prophet and priest like Aaron has been commanded by God to bless the people of God and release the glory of God upon His people… May His face shine upon thee…
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them. Numbers 6:22-27 KJV
The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually). And they shall put Myname upon the Israelites, and I will bless them. Numbers 6:24-27 AMP [also in Psalm 67:1- ]
The blessing promised in Numbers 6 is reinforced by the account of Balaam in Numbers 22-24. The king of Moab hired Balaam to curse the people of Israel (22:4-6); but each time Balaam opened his mouth, he blessed them instead of cursed them (Num. 23:8, 20; 24:9-10). Balaam, in spite of his skills and renown as a prophet, was powerless to bless or curse Israel without the Lord’s direction (cf. Deut23:4-5; Josh. 24:9-10; Neh. 13:1-2). It’s a strong indication that no magic or rituals will make a difference; the authority to bless belongs to the Lord who cannot be compelled. It means no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper. YOU ARE UNCURSEABLE when the Lord has invoked blessings upon you

Gen 39:4-5 KJV
There are outright blessings and conditional blessings. Conditional blessings are predicated on you obeying certain ordinances of God. Scriptures like Deut. 28:1-13, 11:27. Psalm 24:3-5. Beatitudes of Matthew 5
COVENANT OF BLESSINGS
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: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.Gal 3:13-14 KJV

But I say to you that IT IS OVER FOREVER! You shall have plenteous and satisfactory favor from today in the name of Jesus. You shall OVERFLOW and be running over with the blessing of the LORD in Jesus Mighty name… So no more lack IJN
