S. O. A. P
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
Psalm 112:1 Praise the Lord. Blessed are those who fear the Lord. Who find great delight in his commands.
This is an amazing promise from our God. The Scripture says first of all, when you respect and fear the Lord there will be a blessing coming direct from God in heaven to you. Second, when you keep God’s law there is a Joyful Smile instead of a Furrowed Brow that comes into your life.
This verse, if followed, sets up a series of blessings in the life of the believer that are just awesome. If you choose happiness in keeping God’s commands, a whole series of blessings will come upon you. Your children will be influential in the nation. Prosperity will come upon you. Even in dark places God’s light will illumine your direction and path. Your generosity and ability to treat people fairly will produce even more “GOOD” into your personal world. I could go on and on in describing the victories mentioned in this chapter to those who choose joy and happiness when it comes to following God’s commands. When I read this verse I always think of my Dad, who could make the most difficult Bible command into a fun experience. Through the years I have followed my Dad’s lead, and all that has happened to me is … I’m so … “Blessed and Happy to Keep God’s Law.”
Dear Jesus, Like King David, today I’m blessed and happy to keep Your commands. I have lived these blessings out that You promised and the more I love Your commands the happier I get. Amen
