BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH DO HUNGER AND THIRST

AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR THEY SAHLL BE FILLED (MATT:5:6)

hunger: experiencing  hunger, desiring, lacking

thirst:  dryness, desire to drink,craving

we have all know at some time what it mean to be hungry or to be thirsty but here the word is speaking of a spiritual hunger, a spiritual thirst, many are hungry, many are thirsty but the water Jesus gives is everlasting, when you feed from the word your soul becomes fulfilled, satisfied

cross reference: come to the water, delight yourself in the fatness of the word, hear him for he will make an everlasting covenant with you even as with David (Isaiah 55:1-4)

refresher: remember how David was hurt by his lifelong friends in Psalm 41? how he decided it was best to seek God & bury himself in the word? by doing do he was blessed more so & his soul was healed through the word

like the deer that panted for the water, let Jesus draw you to the well of everlasting water, feed on his word for Blessed are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness

 cross reference: but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life

BLESSED ARE THE MEEK

FOR THEY SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH (MATT:5:5)

meekness: gentle, showing patience, humility

cross reference: to speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers but gentle shewing meekness to all men (Titus 3:2)

to inherit something means to come into procession, to be made an heithat 7th verse tells us that being justified by his grace we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life

when we become a child of God we become his heirs & as an heir we are promised the inheritance of eternal life

for in my Father's house are many mansions if it were not so I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you (John14:2)

meekness plays an important role in our walk with God to live in peace we must walk in peace

cross reference: they shall delight themselves in abundance of peace (PS.37:11)

1st Peter 3:7 also reminds  us even as couples how important that it is to live in peace with one each other so that our prayers be not hindered

Blessed are the meek

Have you shown gentleness

Have you shown patience

Have you shown mercy

When was the last time you humbled yourself before God & said

Lord here I am!

when we become humble it is then we walk in an abundance of peace

BLESSED ARE THOSE THAT MOURN

FOR THEY SHALL BE COMFORTEDED(MATT.5:4)

Mourn: to express or feel grief or sorrow

Comforted: the capacity to give physical ease & well being

When we humble ourselves & stay in God’s word he will give peace, this I how we can have peace in the mist of sorrow

(cross reference Luke 6:21)

Blessed are ye that hunger now for ye shall be filled Blessed are ye that weep now for ye shall laugh

We all go through some kind of grief, perhaps our spirit has been grieved by hurt but even in the mist of our sorrow we are still blessed, if we continue to stay in the  word, our spirit man will become full & satisfied, making him stronger, even in the hard times, stay humble towards God & he will fill your soul with laughter & you will laugh again!

SPENDING TIME WITH GOD

quote22

A friend posted this little quote on FB but had other interest in mind as far as what would we”d do if we spent the day together  she got  a lot of response  like sitting on the porch, shopping, reminiscing, sewing etc

but it got me thinking ,lets say God is asking the question & he is asking you if you  could let go of your busy life, your worries, your need to be so organized so perfect, if I asked you to just stop & let it all go & spend  one day with me totally surrender to me just you & me what would we do?

Are you spending enough time with Jesus?

I GIVE MYSELF AWAY

 

what an awesome thing to give yourself away , to lay it all at the alter so he can use you, are you letting God fight your battles? he hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me for there were many with me (Ps 55:18) cast thy burden before the Lord and he shall sustain thee
