#3716 – Blessed People

Good morning people who live God’s way and enjoy His blessings

The first four words of the Book of Psalms are: Blessed is the one

I think that the whole Book of Psalms, and indeed the whole Bible, talks to us about Who God is, who we are in Him, and what it means to be truly blessed.

As I’ve said recently, I’m concerned that sometimes people mis-define blessing.

The starting place of blessing is God, not us. We were created blessed because we were created in the image of God.

Genesis 1:27-28 NIV So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

God did not say, “Be fruitful, increase, fill, subdue and rule over, then you will be blessed.”

God created us in His image, and He blessed us. Then He spoke to us about what He wanted us to do.

If you are IN GOD, then you are blessed.
