“Today, enjoy God’s blessings – Him above all – and all the others [blessings]!!!!” I wrote a beloved sister in the Lord.
I knew even as I wrote the words I needed to hear them and that the Lord had given me a message for numerous others. Maybe even you.
It’s so easy in this world with all its challenges, isn’t it, to get caught up in what’s wrong, what hurts, what’s dark, what’s evil, what’s negative, what’s broken, what needs fixing, the bad news, the ugly, the dirty, what we don’t like, what we don’t want, what we’re missing, what we’ve lost, what bad things could happen, etc. Know what happens when we do this? We lose our focus on the Lord, on our relationship with Him, on the Bible, on His ways, on His will for our lives, and on the countless blessings He bestows upon us throughout our lives – including His blessings right in this 24-hour period!
The greatest blessing in the universe is the Lord, the second greatest is receiving Him as Lord and entering into an everlasting relationship with Him which happens when we turn from our sins, believe in Him as Lord and in His death and resurrection and genuinely devote our lives to God and His ways. Then come the endless spiritual and physical blessings He pours down from heaven upon us!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.” Ephesians 1:3-6
Please, friend, focus on God, the Bible, His ways, His will for you, His goodness, His greatness, His blessings – and on PRAISING THE LORD, PRAISING THE LORD, PRAISING THE LORD as YOU ENJOY HIS BLESSEDNESS AND BLESSINGS EACH AND EVERY DAY! Amen!
“All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”” Revelation 7:11-12
Who is the source of all our blessings?
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” James 1:17
