“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 5:3
Do you want to be blessed? “Blessed are …”
If you are in Christ, God has already blessed you and is blessing you.
Do you believe that you are blessed? Often, we can miss out on God’s blessing due to a lack of faith.
Who is blessed? “… the poor in spirit …”
Those who yield their lives to God and become dependent upon him are blessed by God.
Walking in faith requires humility. Your humility and your dependency upon your Creator and Redeemer opens the treasure-trove of God’s blessings in your life.
Remember, Jesus came to give us an abundant life (John 10:10).
You are blessed when you believe you are blessed. Believe it and live your life in that reality, and you will experience the hand of God in your life.
What is the blessing? “… for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Being his children, our Father lavishes his love on us. It is his desire to give us the kingdom (Luke 12:32) – treasures in heaven and on earth.
According to the apostle James, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” – James 1:17
Our Father wants us to live our lives in the blessings he provides every day of our lives.
Experiencing the blessing. Walking in faith – believing in his promises and providence – ensures that we will experience his blessing – in this life and in the next.
If you believe God and trust in his providence as you walk with him, you can be assured of an abundance of blessing in your life.
