It’s rainy here in So. Illinois and supposed to rain all week. But every day is a beautiful day if you are among the blessed of the Lord. So, join me in starting the week out right recognizing your blessed state in Christ.
“Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.” Ps.65:4.
“Blessed is the man whom thou choosest…Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love;” Eph. 1:3,4.
“…and causest to approach unto thee…Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” Rom. 5:1,2.
“…that we may dwell in thy courts…Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.” Ps. 92:13-15.
“…we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple…And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not…Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” (Isa. 58:11; Matt. 5:6).
