“So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom” Luke 12:32, NLT.
Settle this within yourself today of how blessed you are. It’s not when you get the desires of your heart that you will become blessed. No, you are blessed right now!
The enemy will tell you that you need this or that before you can truly be happy. Only to find that when you finally get those things you want, you may find yourself on to the next thing. Never really satisfied. The people of Israel wandered in the desert for forty years, looking to reach the land that God had promised. Their hearts were full of complaints and murmurings. They were frustrated with God, their situation, upset with Moses, and at each others’ throats because they couldn’t see how blessed they were on the way to their promised place. Although living in tents isn’t the Ritz, living in God is. They had forgotten their rich heritage and the mighty God they served. It’s insulting to God when we don’t see how blessed we are already.
If you know Him. If you have a relationship with Almighty God. If you can go to Him with complete access and favor. If He is keeping you strong. If you are a son of God, then you are blessed!
Prayer: Lord, You are good and faithful. Thank You for all that You have done for me. Help me to walk throughout this day with a thankful heart. I have nothing to complain or murmur about. I’m alive. I could be lost, but You found me. This means more to me than any substance. I’m Your son, and You are my God. Your favor surrounds me as a shield. I am blessed! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
