My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of Proverbs 10:22, “The Blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it”. God wants to bless His children. He says, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health just as your soul prospers. God wants each and every one to live a blessed life not only materially, financially, but also physically with good health. This blessing comes when your soul prospers. Your soul should be in contact with God through Reverence and prayer. Then you will prosper in all your ways. God directs Joshua, “Observe to do according to all the law which Moses had commanded. Let not the book of law depart from your mouth but you shall meditate in it day and night. For then you will make your way prosperous.”
My dear brothers and sisters, this is the secret of God that all might look up to Him and His word. The Bible says, Blessed is the man whose delight is in the law of the Lord. And In His law he meditates day and night, and then he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth its fruit in its season, and whatever he does shall prosper. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous.
Abraham was not only known as the “Friend of God” but he was rich in live stock in silver, and in gold. Job was a man who feared God and shunned evil. He was blessed with seven sons and three daughters. His possessions were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen. The Bible says, this man was the greatest of all the people of the East.
Likewise when Jacob was fleeing from Beersheba to Haran, to Laban’s place, God promised to bless Jacob. When God asked him to return to his father’s place, Jacob thanked God saying Lord, “I am not worthy of the mercies and of all the truth You have shown to me.”For I crossed over this Jordan with my staff. And now I have become two companies.”This is how God blessed Jacob. He was blessed with twelve sons, with flocks of sheep, and cattle. He became a wealthy man.
My dear brothers and sisters if you want to be blessed you need to be in tune with God. Meditate Gods word day and night, Have fellowship with God. Be righteous and faithful before God in all your ways, then the Lord will bless you as He blessed these men of God. In spite of the affliction and sacrifice they had to undertake God blessed them. Such blessing that comes from God does not cause pain or sorrow. It brings joy and peace.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord help my children to be obedient and faithful. Lord bless them to be devoted to You. Teach them to meditate on the word of God daily so that they may be blessed in all their ways. Help them to enjoy the blessing of the Lord. In Jesus name we pray,
