Blessings · Obedience

a day for blessing… and being blessed…

A day for blessing… and being blessed…
in the offering of myself to others… for His use… at His call…
I find myself blessed… a truth found in His Word…

Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,
and the one who waters will himself be watered.
Proverbs 11:25 ESV
It feels odd to receive such a blessing… by being obedient… in blessing others… it also feels great…!
I think of Abraham… and find myself wanting… the blessing God gave him…
“… in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Genesis 12:3 ESV
What an awesome blessing to receive…
the blessing of being a blessing…!
We may think ourselves such a mess… we could never bless anyone else…
but God… in His grace… works out brokenness as blessing…
“… the Lord your God turned the curse into a blessing for you,
because the Lord your God loved you. …”
Deuteronomy 23:5 ESV
Moses reminded the Israelites about the story of Balaam…
the prophet hired by their enemy… to curse them…
but God would not allow it…
Our enemy… entered the world to curse us with sin…
yet God… in His love… did not allow it to be the last word…
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming
a curse for us — for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”…
Galatians 3:13 ESV
He uses every curse… and its consequences… for good… when we allow Him to redeem it ALL through Christ Jesus… giving Him lordship over our lives…
Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall!
Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord!
Psalm 144:15 ESV
Obey His voice…
be a blessing…
be blessed…
Who have you blessed today…?
