GOD’S WORDS BLESS!
God blesses those who believe—- Luke 1:45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. Gal.3:9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
God gives blessings to those with their sins forgiven—- Psalms 32: Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.2 Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. Romans 4:7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
God gives righteousness without works —- Romans 4:6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.
God blesses those whom He chastises—- Job 5: 16 So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:
God blesses those who suffer for Christ.—- Luke 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
Those whose Lord is their God are blessed. Psalm 144:15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
