21 Days of PRAISE - Day 11
Psalm 147 vs 11
11The LORD favours those who fear Him, Those who wait for His lovingkindness.
Awaking up to a bright and peaceful morning, looking at everything the Lord has created, everything He has done, I felt humbled and very thankful. I was short of words to ask Him for other things but full of words that exalted and praised Him. What a beautiful God we serve.
Reading today's verse opened my eyes to a whole new dimension of God. It is funny how we pray and ask God for FAVOUR & BLESSINGS when it has already been made available to us even from the very beginning, the book of Genesis 1 vs 28 says:
... God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth."
(we started with God's favour and blessings)
Where did it all go wrong, where did we miss it? thus making us pray and ask for Favour and blessings.
The scriptures do not lie, our God is principled, and anyone who works/walks in His ordinance, His commandments, in His RIGHTEOUSNESS will need not ask for favour or blessings but will just automatically live a God-favoured life.
God is not just interested in you being blessed BUT what will His blessing/favour be used for. Will it be used to curse Him by using His blessings to glorify sin or will His name be glorified through His blessings/favour upon your life as you live with the fear and awareness that He sees even in secret places.
The New King James Version translation of the bible say:
The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy Psalm 147 vs 11
Not only will you experience God's favour but God also taking pleasure in you and all that concerns you. What a feeling having Him not just as my God and Father but as one that derives joy and pleasure to see me succeed in all areas.
You want to live a life of favour? My answer to you today is:
- FEAR HIM
- PUT YOUR HOPE AND TRUST IN HIM ALONE
- LIVE IN GOD's CONCIOUSNESS
- LIVE RIGHTEOUS, LIVE HOLY
As we read the word today in this season of praise, I pray His word comes to life in us in JESUS NAME.
