Blessed be the LORD, the eternally righteous and loving God, who guards my steps and pour out the riches of heaven upon me. Let everyone say, Blessed be the LORD the most High God, who is excellent in all his ways. His thoughts are upon us. And he will be our God, even unto the end. Amen.
Father, I pray that this message will change the lives of those who read it. Holy Father, have your way, O God. Have your way with your people, my God.
There is a contrast between the righteous and the wicked. The righteous walk in the light but the wicked in darkness. The righteous love God but the wicked love the world. The righteous forgive but the wicked will not. The righteous man comes before God with his sins, openly confessing and repenting that his way shall be made right before God; for he knows that the wages of sin is death. He will not hide it. He will beg for God’s mercy and plead for his lovingkindness. For it is written: Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered (Psalm 32:1). But the wicked thinketh himself to be wise. He hides his sins as if God will not know it. This is the demise of the wicked – they think God is a fool. But who will think in his heart to demote God and elevate himself but the wicked? Did not Lucifer said that? How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven; I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit (Isaiah 14:12 – 15). Look at the fruit. You shall know them by the fruit. Who will not fear God, lest his eyes are shut and his heart harden? O Father, have your way today. Will the wicked not cease from their wickedness? Shall they continually deceive themselves because they abide not in truth nor the righteous matters of the LORD?
Why is it so hard for some people to bless others? How can you desire the blessings of the LORD, yet you will not render blessings to others? How can it be that a self – centered heart desires the riches of the LORD? Is not my God awake in the heavens? Will he not search your hearts and the depths of your soul? Give unto the LORD what is due. Withhold not the blessings of the LORD my God. Bring forth precious treasures before him. Excel his truth! Magnify his glory. The LORD is mighty and his glory is excellent before me. Lift up RIGHTEOUSNESS. Lift up my Christ and my God. Declare his greatness. O mighty God, Creator of the heavens and the earth, thou art everlasting unto everlasting glory. Let your blessings come forth as righteousness and let it lift up the soul of my God. Let it be as a light that shineth brightly before him. O LORD, search our hearts and remove all guile and bitterness. Remove it far away, my God, and bury it in the depths of hell. Let us leave this burden behind us. Let it hunt us no more. Father – take it away. Renew us, O God. Let us walk in the light, in the image of Christ. Let us stand in liberty and let it behold us. Let it crown our souls with the goodness of our God. My God, magnify yourself Father; magnify yourself today. Let us bless and not curse. Let us bless each other and rejoice the heart of our God. Strive not with your brother nor sister. For are we not of the same Father and God? Who shall stand before the LORD? Who shall ascend in the hill of the LORD, or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart, who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceithfully. He shall receive the blessings from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation (Psalm 24: 2 – 5).
Bless one another sincerely and the blessings of the LORD shall come upon you. I tell you the truth as my God has given it to me. Bless each other – be generous with your blessings. Pour your hearts out and let the love of God flow from it. Be not deceitful in thy hearts and foolish to thy own condemnation. Withhold not the blessings from thy heart. Give freely unto others and God will give freely unto you. O LORD my God, let my blessings fall upon you, my Father. Let the riches of my heart cover you and anoint you with gladness. Let the joys of the heavens magnify thy glory. O most High God, let thy soul be exalted forever.
O Father, pour your blessings upon your children. Enrich their lives with hope. Bring forth the joys of thy salvation before them. Let them rejoice in thee. For righteousness’ sake, let them rejoice. Let them bless one another; for it is well with my God. Let the God of heaven be continually magnified. Let our praises abound before his throne with gladness. And let my God stretch forth his hand and pour out his blessings upon us. And let us delight in the most High God forever. Let us lift us thy name, O LORD; for thy name is worthy to be praised. My LORD, let the love of our hearts beseech you with a multitude of joy. Behold thy glory my God. So excellent is thy ways. Blessed be thy right hand, the strong and mighty hand. Blessed be the LORD from everlasting unto everlasting. Amen. And let everyone say, Amen.
