Memorize: Psalms 119:2
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
Read: Deuteronomy 10:12-22
A blessing is an intangible deposit of God in man that operates in him to make him blossom. Many look at an aspect of life and call it a blessing. For instance, to some financial wealth is considered a blessing whereas it is merely an effect of a blessing. A blessing brings about a combinational effect of wellness. I pray that the Lord endows you with His blessing today in Jesus’ name.
To qualify for this blessing without doing more, the Lord expects certain things from you. Most importantly, don’t forget God’s past deeds for you that has kept you standing despite all the maneuvers of the enemy. The testimonies help to strengthen your heart when it starts to be weakened by the enemy in that it reminds you that if God did it before, He can do it again. Moreover, you are expected to seek God always with your whole heart. Don’t pretend to be who you are not. If you are on the side of God, circumcise your heart and stop being stiff-necked like the Israelites. Despite all that the Lord put Pharaoh through for their sakes, Israel was never quiet in grumbling before God in their journey to the promised land. The Lord did all to satisfy them to no avail. He had to decide to shed those with the slavery mentality and stiff-neckedness in the wilderness that they may not take the same into the promised land which was purposed to be a land of peace.
Beloved, the Lord has prepared a place for all His saints where there will be peace ever more and He cannot afford any stiff-necked but blessed people there. So, for you to be there, you must also qualify for His blessing by obeying Him completely while you are still here in the wilderness of the world. How? Well, fear God; walk in all His ways; keep His commands; tell others of His deeds and keep them to heart and so on. Bottom-line is: love God, and love your neighbor as yourself. Therefore, to become blessed, let all your thoughts and actions pass the test of love. Once you attain that, start seeing how your life turns out. The Lord says you are blessed and nothing can change that. Be blessed.
Almighty father, I curry your blessing: help me to be faithful in keeping your testimonies and seeking you that I may inherit your Kingdom as a blessed heir in Jesus’ name.
