It speaks of God’s protection, favor, and peace.

II. The Blessings of Trust and Strength (Psalm 28:7)

The psalmist declares that the Lord is our strength and shield.
Trusting in God enables us to find refuge and help in times of trouble.
This verse reminds us that in God, we can find unwavering strength and unending joy.
Moving forward, let us explore the blessings outlined in the Beatitudes, as shared by Jesus Himself.

III. The Blessings of the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12)

Jesus presents a radical perspective on blessings, emphasizing spiritual qualities rather than worldly achievements.
Each beatitude reveals a specific blessing bestowed upon those who exhibit these godly characteristics.
Through poverty of spirit, mourning, meekness, hunger for righteousness, mercy, purity of heart, peacemaking, and persecution, we discover the abundant blessings of God’s kingdom.
Let us now turn to the apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, where he highlights the spiritual blessings we receive in Christ.

Lastly, we will explore the blessing of perseverance amidst trials, as mentioned in the book of James.

V. The Blessing of Perseverance (James 1:12)

12 God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

James encourages believers to endure trials, knowing that those who persevere will receive the crown of life.

From the priestly blessing of Numbers, to the Beatitudes, to the spiritual blessings in Christ, and the promise of a crown of life, we see that God desires to pour out His goodness upon us.

May these truths ignite a desire within us to live lives that reflect the blessings we have received, shining as a testimony of God’s goodness to the world around us. May we continually seek to honor God and extend His blessings to others, knowing that in doing so, we participate in His kingdom
