Blessing

08 September 2020
‘The LORD your God will bless you as he has promised.’

Sometimes circumstances wear us down so much that we give up hope. But even when things are going badly for us, God doesn’t leave us. Jeremiah 17 says: ‘The person who trusts in the LORD will be blessed. The LORD will show him that he can be trusted. He will be strong, like a tree planted near water that sends its roots by a stream. It is not afraid when the days are hot; its leaves are always green. It does not worry in a year when no rain comes; it always produces fruit’ (v.7-8 NCV). If we put our trust in God, He’ll keep us nourished and fruitful, even during the difficult times. He wants to bless each one of us, but sometimes we can miss His blessing because: 1) We don’t realise how privileged we are. We can believe God has saved us and has made a place for us with Him in heaven, but we might doubt that He can do anything about our past, present, or future. But He can help us use the experiences of our past to help others and glorify Him through how far we’ve come, He is beside us right now, and He’ll guide our future steps if we let Him. 2) We see ourselves in the wrong light. We believe He can bless anybody, but we can sometimes think that he won’t bless us because we’re not worthy enough. But God has clothed us in the righteousness of Christ, so we’re worthy in His eyes, and He has plans to ‘bless you as He has promised’.

What Now?

Take a few minutes today to reflect on how privileged you are as a child of God.
