What Does That
Covid 19 has been a pain for everyone to endure, even if you aren’t one of the unfortunate ones to catch it. It’s all over the news that President Trump declares Covid a blessing from God, but it’s been taken entirely out of context.
This article is NOT going to be about Trump or Covid 19 so don’t run away. However, I have watched the video and Trump was really saying that since he could take the trial medicine it was a blessing to see how it worked.
This article is all about blessings from God. I want to talk about what blessings from God really are. First, let’s take a look at what the dictionary says about this word blessing.
“A special favor or gift bestowed by God”
Those are the three things mentioned in the dictionary but from a spiritual standpoint the blessings of God are so much more! All through the bible are scriptures of promises, and blessings God wants to bestow upon us but we have to know what they are to receive them!
We can walk in the blessings of God on a daily basis if we follow what the bible says to do. God wants us to walk in favor with Him and mankind. That means that not only will God bless you but people here on earth will bring forth blessings to you as well.
But did you notice I said, “if we follow what the bible says to do?” God has set up spiritual laws and this is one of them. In order to walk in God’s favor, we must be putting Him first in everything we do and that is not as hard as you may think. After reading this article go over to this article on the “Seven Keys to Putting God First” for more information.
“Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround
them with your favor as with a shield. “
Proverbs 3:1-4 New Living Translation
“My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart.“
If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying.
Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.“
Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation.”
God can use a homeless man on the street to bless you because you never know when, where, or how God is going to get your blessing to you.
When I get up in the mornings I look forward to what God has in store for me that day! To walk in the blessings of God you must read his word daily and meditate on it. Pray and have conversations with God. Let Him be your confidant!
Then put actions to what you have learned and be of service to others. As you walk in the light of God’s word the blessings of God will follow you everywhere.
The other day I went into the Family Dollar store to pick up something. When checking out I saw that the cashier had on a really neat mask that was clear plastic but unlike those that cover your entire face, this one only covered over the noise and mouth.
I made a comment to her that I had a hard time breathing in my cloth mask and she went behind another counter and pulled out one of her extra mask like she was wearing and gave it to me.
She didn’t know me from Adam, but she blessed me with the mask I was wanting. It was just one of the blessings from God I received that day!
You will find that people everywhere will be practically throwing things at your feet when you walk in the favor of God! Strangers will give you gifts, money and much more.
Here is a quick story about my sister Gloria who lives in Lubbock, Texas. She was going to the nursing homes every single Saturday, after working all week, and singing songs and giving a small word from God to the residents there. This went on for several years and she received no money for it. It was done out of love for God.
A financial need came up for her and she prayed about it, then went on to her regular visit at the nursing home. After ministering to the patients in the residence a man who was visiting his mother came up to her and said, “You don’t know what it means to me and my mom that you show up here every Saturday.”
The man reached out and put some folded bills in her hand. Gloria gathered up her things and when she got to the car she opened the bills to put in her wallet and saw that this stranger had placed $500 in her hand! Praise God, her need was met. This was a blessing from God!
Sometimes the blessing from God is small, like the mask, but sometimes it’s big, like healing from cancer!
Do you need a blessing from God? It’s simple… just live, sleep, and breath Jesus. Put God first in everything you do and your blessings from God will overflow so much you can share with others. It will get to you! That one and many many more!
God delights to bless you just like you in turn love to bless your children. And every time you receive a blessing from God be sure and share that testimony with someone.
You never know if your testimony will spark a flame in that person to make them want to seek out God and what He can do for them and their loved ones.
Now that you’ve downloaded your free book, read it and start putting some of those steps into action in your life. I promise you it will make a huge difference in walking with God and receiving the blessings of God!
