There’s nothing we can do to earn God’s love, however if we want to experience His blessings we need to observe the qualifications that He’s given us in His Word. Psalm 112 details a whole list of blessings, but the key to receiving them is verse 1.
"Blessed is the man that fears (puts his trust, honors, in awe of His majesty) the Lord, and delights greatly in His commandments. (Takes pleasure in what God says and obeys Him)."
Adopt that attitude toward Him and be assured, blessings are on the way! Your offspring will be mighty on the earth (vs 2), wealth and riches shall be in your house (vs 3), even in darkness the light shall shine on you (vs 4), you shall not be shaken (vs 6) in the midst of evil you will have no fear of bad news because your heart is set upon Him (vs 7).
Now I don’t know about you, but I want to live in the blessings of God!
Let’s live a life that God will bless, honor the Lord with our whole heart, and delight in obeying Him!
Psalm 112:1 Praise the LORD. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who finds great delight in his commands.
I have been on a tumblr break for a few days and I am finally back on! I have missed seeing your post like crazy. You are so inspirational and your testimony is amazing. Thank you for being such a strong man of God.
Wow thank you for reading and looking at what I blog about! Amen! Glad your back too! :) God bless you and have an amazing day!
How can you expect to truly love everyone else when you can’t love you for who God has made you to be. It says “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” (Mark12) To love others, you must first LOVE YOURSELF!
YOU ARE A CREDIT TO THE BODY OF CHRIST, YOUNG BROTHER. AS A THIRTY SOMETHING WHITE GUY MARRIED TO A BLACK WOMAN WITH TWO BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS I OFTEN ALLOW THE ENEMY TO SHAKE MY HOPE IN YOUNG SOLDIERS LIKE YOU. YOU ARE PRESSING ON. I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUNG LADIES LIKE MINE AND MY NIECES KNOW THAT THERE ARE YOUNG MEN LIKE YOU WHO ARE AFTER HIM FIRST. GOD BLESS. KEEP UP THE WORK.
Wow. That means a lot for someone to hold me in that regard. Praise God for transformation and regeneration in my life so that could be possible! Praise God for you and your life! May he continue to work and speak through you and move through your family with a greater manifestation of the power of the Holy Spirit! God Bless you!
Do you have a Christian Blog or are you just a Christian that blogs?
Your blog represents what you believe, who you are. It is a representation of what you consider “important” in your life. So do you have a Christian blog, is He THAT important, or are you just a Christian that blogs? For myself, I consider my blog a ministry, one that I have dedicated to using for the purpose of displaying Christ. Even though I’m not perfect and my blog isn’t either, to me, He is worth talking about more than than the hottest styles, the latest news with actors, fashion, etc. My prayer? …that your blog shows that Christ is most important to you!
