Psalm 68:19 (NKJV)
19 Blessed be the Lord,
Who daily loads us with benefits,
The God of our salvation!
As this verse found in Psalm 68 tells us, God loads us up with benefits on a daily basis. When we live a life that honors God, when we obey His Word and we’re a person of excellence and integrity, the bible says that God’s blessings will chase us down and overtake us. We won’t be able to outrun the good things that God send our way.
This can be very confusing to some people. Some people think they have to go chasing after the blessings. Some think that the amount of blessings they get from God is dependant upon some checklist of works they must complete before they can get any benefits from God. Good works are great and they certainly flow from a heart that is in tune with God’s will, but the good works are not a requirement for getting God’s blessings. But really, when we chase after God each and every day, when we make God our highest priority, the blessings will automatically come our way and follow us around wherever we are o whatever we are doing.
I want to challenge all of us to make pleasing the Lord our top priority in our lives. Let’s let go of anything that would hold us back or weigh us down and prevent us from receiving the blessing God has in store for us. If letting go of these other things is too hard to do, then let’s at least strive to not make them our top priority. These things can be farther down on our list.
Instead of trying to seek out and worry about issues that haven’t even come up yet, let’s be willing to deal with issues only as God brings them to our light. Let’s not give in to compromise and temptation that will keep us from God’s best. If we can do this, we had better get ready because God’s blessings will chase us down as He loads us up with His blessings and daily benefits.
