Why Be Blessed?

BeattitudesLet’s break this down. What is being blessed?

In this instance scripture is referring to these two definitions:
supremely favored; fortunate AND blissfully happy or contented.

This is what Yahweh wants for us. He wants to bless us. In Matthew 5:3-12 we see what is labeled as “The Beattitudes”. The dictionary defines beattitude as exalted happiness. Exalted is defined as full of, feeling, or manifesting ecstatic joy or delight.

v 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Great is your reward in heaven.

Our issue is  that we’re not Kingdom minded. We’re earthly and worldly minded. We need to focus on our Abba Yahweh. He is our ultimate joy and delight.

Three questions:

  • Where’s your focus?
  • Where do you find your joy?
  • What’s your intentions?

The Bible teaches that with Christ in your heart, you can face the realities of life. Even though they are hard, the grace of God will give you greater joy and pleasure.
– Billy Graham

Three answers:

  1. Repent and get your alignment with Yahweh in order.
  2. Rejoice in Yahweh, not the world.
  3. Let Yahweh bless you, not the world.
