TOPIC: Who receives blessings from God? Today we are looking at Scriptures on who receives God’s blessings. Open your Bible to the following verse and read the wonderful words. I am using the King James Version.
1/Isaiah 30 :18 tells us that those who wait for the Lord will be blessed! Isaiah 30:18 And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.
2/ God blesses those who find strength in the Lord! Psalms 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
3/ The Bible tells us in Matthew 5:6 that those who hunger and thirst after righteousness will be blessed. Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
4/ Psalms 65:4—- 4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple. Psalms 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them. These verses tell us those who visit the house of God and seek His presence will receive a blessing!
5/ Blessed are they who avoid the wicked! Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
6/ Blessed are they that endure temptation! —-James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
7/ We read in Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
8/ Blessed are they that watch for the Lord! —- Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
