Today’s Word: Blessed
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Psalm 32:1
It’s a joy when we can live knowing that our sins are forgiven. We do not have to answer to man, only to our God who has the power to forgive us. When we know that we are forgiven it tends to give us a sense of freedom. We will no longer be weighted down by the cares and the worries that comes from living with guilt and shame.
If you are feeling weighted down on this day, give it to Jehovah, He is a very loving and merciful God and He is very willing to forgive. It is quite easily done, in the comfort of your own homes you can go before God in prayer and ask Him for forgiveness, you could be in a car, on the job. Only God knows what’s on your mind—on your heart.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:
1 Corinthians 10:16
The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ?
Paul’s words remind me of the Last Supper as well as the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
“The blessing of the LORD brings [true] riches, And He adds no sorrow to it [for it comes as a blessing from God].”
PROVERBS 10:22 AMP
This scripture says it all. Nothing miss, nothing broken; every blessing from our Father God. His Joy, His peace, His love; His Grace, true blessings indeed! Glory, Hallelujah!
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. — Deuteronomy 28:2. Praise God!
Psalm 103 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquites; who healeth all thy diseases.
A few years back I started to ask myself what exactly does it mean to bless or be blessed. So I looked up the meaning. To bestow a gift or happiness upon someone is the definition that spoke the most to me. May God bless us with His gift of forgiveness, grace and favor which brings happiness into our lives.
But what about blessing the Lord? He has everything, doesn’t He? My answer is when we praise Him and worship Him we are bestowing our gift of happiness upon Him. The word says he inhabits the praises of His people.
