The Blessed Way of Life 2 WEDNESDAY JAN. 31


The Blessed Way of Life 2
 
   WEDNESDAY
     JAN. 31

 
 
Psalms 1:1-3 (NIV), Psalms 84:5 (NIV)
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. *Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.

 Author1 PhotoAs you grow in maintaining God's perspective of blessing and success, you will experience greater manifestation of God's blessing and success in your life this year. Like we studied yesterday, have you noticed that whenever the Bible uses this phrase: “blessed is the man…”, the next thing that usually follows is a virtue, character or attitude that is in line with God's will and ways? No matter what a person has on the outside, if they are not saved and walking in the will and the ways of God, they are not really blessed and successful in God's eyes. When a person is saved and walking in God's will and ways, they are blessed and successful in God's eyes and in a matter of time, there will surely be manifestations of that blessing on their lives.

According to the scriptures, people who have been justified by faith in Christ are blessed, Rom.4:4-8. People who trust in God and make God their strength are blessed, Psa.34:8, Psa.40:4, Jer.17:7 & Psa.84:5&12. So are those who maintain fellowship with God, Psa.65:4. And those who God chastises, Psa.94:12. People who fear God and delight greatly in His Word are also blessed, Psa.112:1. So are those that hear God's voice (Pro.8:34) and those that endure temptation (James 1:12). Because you have the Spirit of God in you, you have the ability to manifest these attitudes as well as all the attitudes that Jesus described in Matthew 5:3-11. The blessed life is most characterized by the fruit of the Spirit, Gal.5:22- 23. Keep living the blessed life.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I thank You that you have empowered me by your Spirit to live the blessed life that honours and glorifies You.
