Blessings in every Circumstance
19Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
This is a day the Lord has made; we can be glad and rejoice in it! With the day to day hustle and bustle going on all around us, we can be assured that God is with us, never leaving or forsaking us. It makes no difference if we are coming or going, we are blessed. (Deuteronomy 28:6) Even if we see trials and tribulations the world can bring, in the midst of this we know that for us there are blessings coming, for all things work together for good to those who love God and are the called according to His purposes. (Romans 8:28) With God on our side, who can be against us? Our adversaries and diversities must run for the hills, gone like a puff of smoke when they see God in action in our lives. (Psalm 68:1-4)
Blessings from Gods Word
As a child of God, you are already blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus. Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son.(Ephesians 1:3-6 MSG)
It was in the city of Jerusalem that Jesus was whipped, cursed and spat on. And it was outside the city on Calvary’s hill that He was pierced and crucified. That is why you are blessed in the city as well as outside in the country! In fact, you are blessed regardless of your location.
Blessings from Believing and Speaking
According to Jesus from the abundance of our heart our mouth speaks. A good man brings up good things that are stored in his heart and speaks them, if evil is stored in the heart that is spoken. For out of the heart of each person the mouth speaks. (Luke 6:45) Jesus also said that our words carry power in them. If we are speaking what we believe negatively or positively then we have faith in what we are saying coming from our heart. We will receive the abundance of our heart that we are speaking. By placing faith as small as a grain of mustard seed into the words we speak, we are able to move trees and mountains, and we see these words come to pass in our lives. (Mark 11:23-24, Luke 17:6)
Beloved, put good things into your heart so that your faith speaks them into your blessings and put away negative thoughts and words that were not from God. (James 1:17) Don’t get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven, and all because of Jesus.
So say to yourself, “I am blessed in whether I am coming or going in city or out of the city. My blessings are from the Lord Jesus; wherever I am He is there with me.”
