What are you filled with?
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.
Psalms 68:19 King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
Are you filled with the world or God and His blessings?
The Lord our God will load (fill to overflowing) us daily with His benefits. Trust in the Lord, rely on Him. “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20 NKJV) Do you hear that? ALL His promises are Yes and Amen. As we look back today on the events that took place on Sept. 11, 2001 know that our God was watching over us as a country. Had our God not been there many many more would have perished that day. If others would have heeded His still small voice that morning, even less would have perished. He kept many from going to work in the towers that morning or at least delayed them so they missed the disaster. He has even provided us with salvation. Salvation is more than just going to heaven when you die.
The Hebrew word translated as salvation here is; H3444. yeshuw’ah, yesh-oo’-aw; fem. pass. part. of H3467; something saved, i.e. (abstr.) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity:–deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
Notice that among the many things that the translator could have used are victory, prosperity, deliverance, health, and welfare or well being. All of these are part of the total package of our salvation. Don’t just reach into the gift box and take out one thing, take it ALL! There are many churches out there that only teach salvation as eternal life, going to Heaven. How sad! Being saved and having eternal life is nothing here and now unless you also have victory, prosperity, deliverance, health, and well being. “Your will be done on earth just as it is in heaven!” All of these are part of our salvation. He did this for me before I ever loved Him! He loads us daily with His benefits. But as with any gift, if it is not received it is of No benefit to us. You must receive His benefits. “Blessed be the Lord, my God!”
Holy Father God, thank You for the air I breath, the blood that pumps through my veins, and the Spirit of life that You have placed within me. Thank You Father for loving me before I ever loved You. For loving me so much that You sent Jesus, Your only begotten Son, to take my place on the cross. To bear that which I was due that I might have life and life more abundantly. Thank You for loading me daily with benefits and good things. Thank you Father for your protection over our country even when we don’t think about you being there. Thank You Lord, that You are the God of more than enough! Thank You Father, for Your saving grace and Your mercy unto me. In Jesus’ name, I pray.
