Receiving Daily Benefits

benefits

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.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
