Commentary By: Gordon King
Blessed is the LORD our God, the one who gave us life, the one who gives us hope!
Give thanks to the Lord in all things, honor Him with you life, and show Him how much you love Him by your works!
When we perform God’s will then we are giving him glory and honor. When we listen to God and obey Him, then we are praising Him for His trustworthiness and promises.
Our works will not save us, nothing that we do could save us, but our works show our obedience to God, our loyalty to Jesus Christ, they are the fruit of our spirit!
When we disobey God, when we do things that we shouldn’t do, then we grieve the heart of God, we quench the Holy Spirit! It is at these times when we don’t hear God’s voice, when our prayers may not be answered, when the blessing of God stop falling upon us.
However, when we are faithful and true to God, then He does hear us, He does answer our prayers, and His blessings fall upon those who have a heart for Him!
If we want our life to be abundant, if we want the blessings of God, then we must obey God! If we want to be blessed beyond measure then be pleasing to God. Please God and the Holy Spirit, listen to His voice, follow His lead, and the blessings of God are sure to follow!
This does not mean that we will not endure trials or tribulations, we will. But, God will be with us every step of the way! He will see us through, the victory is ours, and we shall come out smelling like roses!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
