In Need of A Blessing


"Blessed are those who transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.  Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them."  Romans 4:7-8

There are so many times we in Christ are looking for the blessing.  We look to our circumstances to see what they are.  When we put our hope in our circumstances, we are then led by the happenings.  If they are good, then we are rejoicing.  If they are bad, we can end up in disappointment, disillusionment and discouragement.  If our target is off, then we will be riding the waves of ups and downs.  Satan understands that if we are moved by the natural things of man rather than being led by the Spirit of God, we can easily be deceived.  He desires that we walk by the flesh and not by the Spirit because he knows that faith in God and what his son has done will conquer his strategies.

We are already a blessed.  How do we have assurance of this?  We are told in Romans 4:7-8 "Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, who sins are covered.  Blessed is the one who sin the Lord will never count against them."  We are blessed because we put our faith and hope in Jesus Christ who died for our sins and rose from the dead and who now sits on the right hand of God the Father.  We are blessed despite our circumstances here on earth. We have an eternal destination and life everlasting.  We have a promise of having assurance of our salvation as we put our hope and trust in him.  We know that when trials come and they will, that God will be with us through the fire and he will proof our faith much more richer than gold.  He will make known to us the glories riches in Christ Jesus.

Sometimes our mountains are big, but when we put our hope in Jesus Christ and trust in the eternal blessing of the forgiveness of our sins, then we know that we will succeed.  It may not be according to the world's standard, but it will be one that will bring everlasting glory, assurance, peace and joy.  

May you experience the goodness of God today as you see his wonderful blessing in your life.  You are forgiven and the greatest debt you could of owed anyone is paid in full.  You now can stand before a most holy God and be in his presence.
