The Blessed

25 Aug

The Blessed…

Blessed is the man you choose and bring near to dwell in your courts,” Psalm 65:4. In Hebrew, the word “blessed” is really the word “asher.” “Asher” doesn’t just mean “blessed.” It means “happy” or “joyful.”

The Bible is telling you how to be joyful. What’s the secret? Those who are “asher,” “happy” or “joyful” dwell in the courts of God, in His presence. You see, happiness and contentment do not come from material things.

You can have all in the world and still be empty and miserable. But, you can’t dwell in the presence of God and be empty or miserable… for the presence of God fills all things.

Moses dwelt in God’s presence and came down the mountain glowing… so much he had to cover his face. If you want to glow.. you need to be in His presence.

The more you spend in God’s presence, the greater the glow. Spend more time with God, in His presence. And your life will be filled with fullness. For “Blessed,” “Asher,” “Happy,” and Joyful is the man chosen and brought near to dwell in the courts of God.’

How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! My soul yearns,q even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young a place near your altar, Lord Almighty,t my Kingu and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. Psalm 84:1-4

Make it your aim today to be filled up with the presence of God – glowing, happy and joyful.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
