God will bless the works of your hands. - Bro. T. Stephen
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Psalms 128:2, “When you eat the labour of your hands, You shall be happy and it shall be well with you.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, From the above context we come to know that this is a Psalm for families. In that we are taught that the prosperity of our families depends, upon the blessings of God. We learn from this Psalm that the only way to obtain that blessing that will make our families comfortable, is to live in the fear of God, and in obedience to Him. We must sing this Psalm in the firm belief of the truth that religion and piety are the best friends to outward prosperity. It is again and again laid down in truth and that those who are truly holy are truly happy. Blessed is everyone that fears the Lord whether he be high or low, rich or poor, in the world. If you fear Him and walk in His ways, all shall be well with you.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, If you fear Him and walk in His ways, all shall be well with you. By the Blessing of God, the Godly shall get an honest livelihood. To do their work, with quietness they shall work and eat their own food. They shall enjoy what they earn. They that fear the Lord, and walk in His ways, are the only happy persons, whatever their station in life may be. They shall have abundant comfort in their family relations. And they shall have all the good things God has promised .
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, The Bible says, that King Solomon found, that the only beneficial and appropriate course of action for people is to eat and drink and find enjoyment in all their hard work on earth. During the few days, of their life which God has given them, for this is their reward. To everyman whom God has given wealth and possessions, He has also given him, the ability to eat, from them, to receive his reward and to find enjoyment, in his toil for these things are the gift of God. Man does not think much about the fleeting days, of his life, because God keeps him preoccupied with the joy he derives from his activity. May the Lord enable you to enjoy the fruit of your labour. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for making us know that those who fear the Lord will be blessed. Teach us to fear the Lord. And walk in His ways, in order to live an honest livelihood. Help us to walk in the fear of the Lord, and receive the blessings of the Lord. May we see our children’s children and maintain friendly relationship within our family.
