Look for the blessings

“By God of your father who will help you, And by the Almighty who will bless you with blessings of heaven above, Blessings of the deep that lies beneath, Blessings of the breasts and of the womb.”

Genesis 49:25

Though this is a blessing for Joseph and his two sons, we also can glean from it!

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”

2 Timothy 3:16

When we read, study and pray through the word of God, we should be either corrected (in what we are doing wrong), comforted (in the situations we may be in), confirmed (in the directions we are going) or encouraged (in what the LORD is doing). These are just some thoughts to help you today!

But, notice in this verse it says: ‘it is God who will help you’, He is always working things out! Blessings from heaven above, we get rain that gives water to drink and to water our crops for food to eat. Blessings of the deep, we get minerals (gold, silver and steel) oil for fuel. Then blessings of life, the LORD really has given us so much, we just need to look!

“Therefore I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me.”

Micah 7:7

Today, don’t look at the situation you may be in as good or bad. Instead, look for the LORD in every situation. He is there ready to comfort, correct, confirm and encourage. He is willing and able to bless us, so let us look to Him! Have a blessed day!
