The blessing of the Lord is upon you! See that glow on your face? The sparkle in your eye? That quiet confidence you have and that endless peace? The “get up and get it” attitude and the tunnel vision you did not acquire on your own. Your latter days are better than your former days my friend. Although you’ve been through the storm, the valley, and the fire…God brought you through because He has a plan for you! Have you forgotten your God is full of grace and mercy? Have you forgotten how good God really is? He sent a Savior to help you, to restore you, to redeem you, and to die for you. For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son to die for us, so that we could accept Him and have everlasting life. Now I don’t know about you but the only person that even comes close to giving their lives for us is our mother but how many know someone that died and rose again for you? Things could be worse and we often replay the bad in our minds, but what if we started replaying the good? Make a list today of all the awesome things God has done for you and count it all to joy. You could be dead but the Lord saw it fit that you rise this morning and for that (plus much more) let’s thank Him! 👏💃😆
“You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God: Your towns and your fields will be blessed. Your children and your crops will be blessed. The offspring of your herds and flocks will be blessed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be blessed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed. The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven! The Lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you. If you obey the commands of the Lord your God and walk in his ways, the Lord will establish you as his holy people as he swore he would do. Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the Lord , and they will stand in awe of you. The Lord will give you prosperity in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you, blessing you with many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops. The Lord will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them. If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom.”-Deuteronomy 28:2-13 NLT
Sometimes you gotta be like David and encourage yourself. Other times you need a friend like me to come in and remind you that…You are BLESSED!!!
