In the thick of daily life, I sometimes forget the many amazing blessings God promises me for reverencing Him. How about you? Are you aware of the blessings listed—specifically in Psalm 112:1-9? If not take a moment to read these verses. I guarantee you’ll be encouraged:
How joyful are those who fear the LORD and delight in obeying his commands.
Their children will be successful everywhere; an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.
They themselves will be wealthy, and their good deeds will last forever.
Light shines in the darkness for the godly. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.
Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly.
Such people will not be overcome by evil. Those who are righteous will be long remembered.
They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the LORD to care for them.
They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.
They share freely and give generously to those in need. Their good deeds will be remembered forever. They will have influence and honor.
Personally, I think I need to spend time meditating on these Scriptures, soaking up their application to my life, and then turning them to prayer. For starters, I’m going to revel in the truth that my relationship with God means I can be confident and fearless. I can face whatever foe comes my way because God says so.
