Daily Devotional | Staying In God’s Blessings

Psalm 1:1-2 NKJV
“Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. 
 
 
The Bible says that “the blessings of the Lord make one rich, and adds no sorrow to it”. This means that a blessed person is void of sorrows! What is a ‘Blessing’? A blessing is a gift of God, enveloped in His wisdom, only exposed by the physical manifestations, attested by the continuity and progress. A blessing includes everything that will make a person happy, replenished, recognized, esteemed, healthy, expanded, rich, hopeful and hearty. A blessed person is simply blessed. According to the Psalmist, there are some requirements for a person to be blessed. In the world where all have sinned, adopting these principles can help us reconstruct ourselves into the designed blessings of God.
 
KEYS:
(1). To be blessed, you must chose not to walk in the counsel of the ungodly. Ungodly are those that knowingly practice abominable practices; eg: homosexual acts, occultism, witchcraft, racism, orgies, sexual immorality, etc. These acts not only attracts the wrath of God, but prolong it to generations to come (generational curses)
(2). To be blessed, you must chose not to stand in the path of sinners. That is, you should not willingly rebel against God’s instructions.
(3). You must not sit in the seat of the scornful. You will reject evil, expose it and walk away from it regardless of the consequence.
(4). You must delight in the law of the Lord. When you are enlightened by the law of God, this is a sign that you agree with it. Joshua 1:8 reminds us that if we observe the word of God we read that we shall prosper and succeed.
 
REWARDS:
(a). You shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season. This means that God will meet your needs.
(b). Whatever you does shall prosper.
(c). “Whose leaf also shall not whither.” This means that you shall lose anything to sickness. 
(d). You will live your full years. No sudden death
(e). You will have healthy children, and as many as you agree to have without the fear of how to take care of them all!
(f). You will always be victorious when attacked by the wicked. Your God will always fight for you.
 
On the contrary, “the ungodly (wicked) are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.” (Psalm 1:5-6). You can make this choice today, repent, obey and receive. Or reject a gift of God and be cursed! 
Do you know that you can start today to transform your destiny? God said that it is possible! Give it a try and you will be blessed.
