MORNINGTIME 4220by Benjamin Munsell on March 3, 2023
Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, SO THE LORD THY GOD CHASTENETH THEE. Therefore thou shalt Keep the Commandments of the Lord thy God, to Walk in His Ways, and to Fear Him (with a Holy and Reverent fear). For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass. When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt Bless The Lord thy God for the good land which He hath given thee. BEWARE THAT THOU FORGET NOT THE LORD THY GOD, IN NOT KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS, AND HIS JUDGMENTS, AND HIS STATUTES, WHICH I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY: Deuteronomy 8:5-7,9-11. Is being Blessed of the Lord a physical state of location, or is it a state of Heart and Mind? Does it take something tangible in your hand before you are Blessed, or is a Pure Heart Attitude and Cry for Fellowship with the Lord, no matter what the situation and circumstances are going on around you, enough to say you are Greatly Blessed of the Lord? In the coming days of Christian Persecution, will you be more Blessed to Know the Lord in a prison cell, or to Know the Lord on the street? Does your location make a difference as to being Blessed or not? Or will you consider yourself Greatly Blessed just to Walk with and Fellowship with the Lord no matter where your location, even in solitary confinement? Are you Blessed as much on a warm sunny day, and on a cold rainy day and the car won't start? Is there ANY situation or circumstance in which you are not Blessed of the Lord? Does everything that touches you Life today come from the Hand of the Lord, or is part of your day authored/controlled by the Devil? Is the Lord totally in charge of EVERYTHING? Or does Satan run you ragged and you've lost your Peace and Joy and not, Be Blessed?
