How blessed are we who know the blessings of the Lord :- “Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord !” Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the man whose trust is the Lord.” Jeremiah 17:7
“Blessed are those whose strength is in You, Psalm 84:5 “Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.” Psalm 2:12
There are many ‘Blesseds’ in the Word – that pepper the pages of Scripture:- “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked.” Psalm 1:1 “Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust” Psalm 40:4 “Blessed is the man whom You discipline, O Lord.” Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the one who listens to Me, Hebrews 12:6 – watching daily at My gates…. – waiting beside My doors.” Proverbs 8:34 “Blessed is the one who fears the Lord always” Psalm 128:1 “Blessed is he who is generous to the poor.” Psalm 22:19
The ‘Blesseds’ from God, tumble like spangled stars flung with generous profusion across the midnight sky. “Blessed are those who mourn…” “Blessed are the merciful…” “Blessed are the the meek.” “Yes – the Bible is a blessed book of blessings, beatitudes and benedictions:- “Blessed are the poor in spirit…” “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness..” “Blessed are the pure in heart.”
God’s ‘Blessed’s’ are rays of shining sun – imparting light and warmth. God’s love is a blessed fountain-spring of grace and glory. God’s mercy is poured out in blessed showers of blessings, “Blessed are the peacemakers,..” Matt.5:9. Whenever we see the lovely Lord Jesus He’s imparting blessings to the needy His hand reaches out to give a benediction to a sick heart or a sad soul:- “Blessed are you who weep now..” Luke 6:21
Oh the wideness is His ‘Blesseds’ are like the span of the universe’ great globe. Now on the children’s heads.. now on the leper.. now on the sick, now on the dead. His outstretched arms of blessing are ever open to the necessities of others. His Blood cleansing the lost sinner. His Word healing the hurting heart. Yet, to the bond-slaves of the Lord (to his messengers and disciples).. His ‘Blesseds’ come in strange packages which required steadfast trust.
“Blessed is the one who is not offended in Me…” Luke 7:23 “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial,” James 1:12 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake…” “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you ..” Matt.5:10 “Blessed are you when others utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on My account. Matt.5:11
The hope of those, blessed of the Lord, is beyond the present, physical world, – His Blessed blessings reach deep into the love-heart of the Himself. – His Blessed hope stretches forward to the coming kingdom. “This Blessed Hope” is in a Person – the One upon Whom all hope rests… “…the appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour – Jesus Christ.” Titus 2:13 “Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when He comes.” Luke 24:43 “Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb” Rev.19:9 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.” Rev 22:14
He is coming soon – Blessed be the Name of the Lord Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord! We bless You from the House of the Lord. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, Blessed be His glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with His glory! Amen and Amen!
