Lindsey, the next nine blessings are straight from Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount! This first one I take from Luke’s account, the rest I take from Matthew’s account. Today I have several blessings for you. Yes! Be blessed, Lindsey, when you are poor. Be blessed Lindsey when you hunger. Be blessed when you weep for you shall laugh. Be blessed when those around you mock you, insult you, hate you or exclude you because you are following Jesus. In those times rejoice and leap for joy! Your reward is great in heaven Lindsey.
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for being with me now and throughout the night. Thank you for guiding me each day. And thank you for the scripture where Jesus said to those who were following him:
And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets. (Luke 6:20-23)
Lord, it’s me again. I so look forward to coming here to sit with you on behalf of your daughter you love. And today it seems like there is another special blessing that you have for her. And so, Lindsey, this day I say that you are blessed. God blesses you when you are poor, hungry or crying for you shall laugh, rejoice and jump for joy. When you see people insulting you or mocking you or excluding you because you publicly tell about Jesus and your God, remember that is also how the ancient prophets were treated. Look up at those times and consider your coming reward in heaven. I bless you in the name of Jesus, who we will give all the glory to. The glory is all yours Lord. Amen (more…)
