The Full Blessing Of The Lord

If you happen to be reading this or if someone happens to be reading this to you or for you, then know this God has truly blessed you. After all its a blessing to be alive and everyday, that one lives is a blessing. Yes we all have had our good days , as well as our bad days, but through it all God has always been there for each of us. Just like the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea or the simple animals or  mammals on land . Just as God has provided for them, he will always do for his most prized creation man. For God our Father in Heaven loves us all and will continue to bless us always. The question that should be asked is how does one receive the full blessing of the Lord? Or how do I get God our Father in Heaven to answer my prayers? For the answers to  these questions, I have an easy answer. Try doing the small or simple things that God requires and he will pour out more blessings than one can receive .My mother would always say to me as a child, that if one could master doing the small or simple things right , then the big things or bigger challenges in life becomes easy. She would always say, Chuck make up your bed, clean up your room, pay attention in class and always no matter what you do respect your elders. If you do these things correctly she explained , then you will grow up into a productive individual and a man of Gods own heart. As she continued to explain to me that we are all Gods children, but so few of us actually acknowledge that fact.(Luke 12:8 "I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God.)
As one would think about my mothers words and the Bible verse just quoted one thought should come to mind, doing the right things in life should be simple, but in reality its not. The reason why is because the world we live in is imperfect and also because there is an evil  presence ( the devil) around us, that keeps or is constantly influencing us from doing even the simple things right. That is why one of the simple things that God our Father in Heaven requires us to do , is so important, prayer .What are the other simple things that pleases God, that can help us get the full blessing from the Lord? The answer to that question is simple, by praying everyday, giving our Father in Heaven, thanks and praise. As simple as that may sound, many of us sometime neglect even the the smallest things and many us forget just how important they are. Going to church, paying one tithes, offerings, prayer daily and giving praise, may sound simple or small. But as my mother would always say to me as a child , "By doing the small or simple things right in life, in time will  make big or larger things seem easy". To put is plainly if one does whats required by God then its, in his promise that they will receive the full blessing of the Lord.
Have a blessed day,
Psalm 24:5 They will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God their Savior.

Psalm 103:11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
Psalm 112:1 Praise the LORD. Blessed are those who fear the LORD, who find great delight in his commands.
