Are You Blessed?
By Pastor Norma Fontaine-Philbert
FRESH BREAD: Very often we hear folk say "I’m blessed” in response to being asked how they are. Well, the Bible gives a clear description of the one who is blessed.
In Psalm 1: 1-3 we read, "BLESSED is the man who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither; whatever they do prospers.”
So tell me, can you honestly be called blessed? Do you delight (take pleasure in) the law of the Lord? Do you meditate on that law day and night? Man sees the outward appearance but the Lord searches the hearts. It’s up to you to ensure that what He finds is a BLESSED person. Yes, it’s up to you….
