We hear people say, all the time; ” I am blessed “! Yet, there are most, who can’t tell you why they are blessed, that coincide with the word of God. We speak it because we heard it from someone else, or have come to our own conclusion of what a blessing from God is.
One may say, they are blessed because they hit the lottery. Or they are dating an individual that they have been wanting to be with, who has someone else. Or they have received too much cash back from a purchase, and don’t say anything. Blessings??
God’s word say, we are blessed in so many ways, in so many areas, and what we will be blessed with. He speaks of blessings to those that are poor in spirit, if you’re not offended in God, if you fear God and walk in his ways. If you trust God, and not lie. If you consider the poor. And so many more.
We should know what we speak on, and not just speak it because we heard it from someone else. But, because we have read it for ourselves, in the word of God. Know when you are blessed.
