We know that we can't get what's on the Sizzlers menu by standing OUTSIDE of Sizzlers, so why do we think we can receive the promises of God OUTSIDE of God's will? ... John 15:7 - "If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you can ask for anything you want, and you'll receive it" ... GET IN GOD'S WILL!! ..... We got people living like the devil himself, saying that they're "Blessed".. You're Not BLESSED! Read Matthew 5:3-11 to know what BLESSED is ..... Psalm 1:1 - "BLESSED is the man who walks NOT in the counsel of the Wicked, nor stands in
the way of Sinners..." ..... Psalm 112:1 - "...BLESSED is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments" ......... James 1:12 - "BLESSED is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life..."
THAT's what BLESSED means.... It has NOTHING to do with materialistic, tangible items ............ But because we've associated "Blessed" with having material things, when we DON'T have money, clothes, houses, etc.. we think we're Not "Blessed" .... We've even associated having "Faith" to having materialistic things. So when we don't have these things, we think we don't have "Faith" -__-
I literally hate Preachings about blessings... "When the praises go up, blessings DO come down".... When you OBEY GOD! When you're in His WILL .... Job 36:11 - "If they OBEY and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and years in pleasures" .. Your Blessing is in OBEDIENCE .... Isaiah 1:19 - "If ye be willing and OBEDIENT, ye shall eat the good of the land" .. Your Blessing is in OBEDIENCE!
If you want God's Blessings, Obey God's Word ... A + B = C ........ I love you (reader), enjoy your day
