23 Mar You Are Blessed By The Lord
“Blessed by God”, yet our circumstances do not seem to match this? What is the definition of “blessing”? How would a child of God be blessed? The truth is, believers of Jesus are indeed blessed, yet whenever we lose the assurance of Immanuel (God with us), we will lose the joy and power that we should rightfully enjoy. Though God’s blessings also include outward tangible ones, we cannot simply define divine blessings by those. Trials and divine discipline are also God’s ways of blessing and loving us. Through this sermon, let us confirm God’s blessings once again.
