This is the ninth and final blessing from the Sermon on the Mount. Lindsey, you are BLESSED when people say rude things about you regarding how you acknowledge Jesus in public and in conjunction with your music and your public postings. In those cases may you REJOICE for your reward is in heaven.
Hello Heavenly Father. I welcome this new day with you. I am looking at the clouds. They are amazing. And they are merely a tiny tiny piece of the creation you created just for us! Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture where Jesus said:
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. (Matthew 5:11-12)
Lord, I am here again to bless your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today’s blessing is special for your situation in life, with so many people looking at you and what you say and do. And the title for today’s prayer of blessing over you sums it up nicely! Lindsey you are blessed when people say rude things about you and how you acknowledge God and Jesus in public. In addition to the blessing I also pray that God would continue to give you the strength each and every time you hear or read what someone says against you and your beliefs. God delights in you Lindsey! I pray this blessing over you in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil things about you falsely on account of me. Rejoice and be glad because your reward is great in heaven, for they persecuted the prophets before you in the same way.
And blessed are you, blessed are all of you, when people persecute you or denigrate you or despise you or tell lies about you on My account. But when this happens, rejoice. Be glad. Remember that God’s prophets have been persecuted in the past. And know that in heaven, you have a great reward.
