Your Blessed Like That

Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. Deuteronomy 28: 3 – 6

It’s a fact. Life is often hard and difficult. When things get rough, and before we start to complain, let’s remember how blessed we really are.

There’s a popular gospel song that says that the devil may try to get us down, but he can’t faze us, because we’re blessed like that. That’s right. You are too blessed to claim defeat, no matter how hard the devil tries or how many times you fall.

Just look around you. Do you see how blessed you are? Isn’t it a wonder how good God is? His provision for you is everywhere you look — in small miracles and large ones. Even before we ask, He answers, and the cattle on a thousand hills are His.

So, when you get knocked down and trouble comes your way, get right back up because you’re blessed like that. When the rest of the world is scrambling around to keep up with the Joneses, your prosperity is assured as a child of God…because you’re blessed like that. When the pain attacks your very soul, you know that joy will come in the morning no matter how dark it may seem now…because you’re blessed like that. When you lay your dreams and goals before the Lord, you realize
your success is assured, because you’re blessed like that!

Let us pray that our lives will be a blessing to others.
