I must begin by telling you that the best book I’ve every read is called The Blessed Life, The Simple Secret of Achieving Guaranteed Financial Results by Robert Morris. If you haven’t read it, you should. Follow the this link to find the book.
Why is it that some Christians seem to be overwhelmed with blessings on their lives while others can’t seem to get a break? The Bible is full of answers. The Bible is also full of antidotes for your problems.
Take for example the very first Psalm and the lessons that it teaches us. Those are the lessons that I’m sharing with you and the five-lifestyle qualities that guarantee a blessed life.
Number One: Don’t follow the life leadership of people who reject God.
Verse 1a: Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the Ungodly.
I’m not talking about being a good employee when the boss is not a believer. I’m talking about letting the wrong people have access to your life. So let me ask you. Who has access into your life? Whose opinion means something to you? What kind of media influence do you have in your life? Internet, television, magazines, books, music, etc., etc
Number Two. Don’t follow the example of those who have rejected God.
Verse 1b: …..nor stands in the path of sinners. Who are you most impressed with? Who in the world do you wish you were the most like? Who are your hero’s?
Number Three, Be careful how you use your tongue.
Verse 1c:….l nor sits in the seat of the scornful. What kind of conversation do you get the biggest kick out of? Do you gossip and talk about people in a negative way? Do you use your social media to spread rumors, attack others character or to air out your own dirty laundry?
Number Four, Delight In the Word of God.
Verse 2a: But his delight is in the law of the Lord. Have you fallen in love with the Word of God? Remember: Before you can fall in love with something you have to get to know it. You will not fall in love with the Bible, the Word of God if you don’t spend quality time with it. There are no blessings if the Word of God is not part of your solutions.
Number Five, Make Living your life God’s way an all of the time priority; day and night.
- 2b:… And in His law he meditates day and night.
- Put God first.
- Pray about everything.
- Ask God what His will is.
- You will be strong and healthy, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
Verse 3a: He shall be like a tree planted by rivers of water.
- You will be fruitful in season.
Verse 3b: …that brings forth it’s fruit in it’s season. Life is comprised of seasons. Good and bad, dancing and mourning. planting and harvesting.Don’t give up before you season of fruit get’s here.
- You will not give up when going through the hot trials of life.
- Verse 3c: … whose leaf also shall not wither.
- Whatever you do will prosper.
If you have a problem with anything in this post your complaint is with the Bible and not me. I believe in the Word of God and in what it says. You can live this blessed life.
I’d love to hear from you.
