This week I have been thinking about how blessed I am in spite of me. I guess I just look at God’s word and know that he desires to bless those who walk for Him and that includes…
Psalm 1:1-3 the psalmist wrote… “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”
I know and realize that this does not mean we will not go through times of difficulty and heartaches in our life, but it does mean that we as a people of God are always going to find the happiness in the situation because we have Christ but to many times I see Christians who are no longer blessed because they have gotten their focus off of Christ and on themselves.
I want to remind you, as well as remember for myself, that our focus is Christ and when we go through anything that is difficult in our my life we can still know that we are blessed of God because He said He will never leave us nor forsake us.
What ever your going through can I tell you that if you know Christ you can rest in the fact that you are BLESSED! That does not mean we will not go through it it just means we have something that that the Lord is working out in us or through us and because the Lord is working we truly are blessed people.
