“Blessed is the people of whom this is true; blessed is the people whose God is the Lord.” (Psalm 144:15 NIV)
When you belong to God, you get His blessings.
Blessings are a by-product of the relationship. He is not just giving you random blessings but sharing His blessings as well: divine peace, security, forgiveness, unconditional love as well as His perspective.
God belongs to You.
Belonging is a two way street and you bless Him.
You bless Him with your unique view of the word, the way you love people, your sense of humor, your creativity and your gifts.
And there is more.
God takes all of you.
He has taken upon Himself your faults, your sin, your fears, your issues. He takes them to the Cross where Christ has stripped them of power and authority. Because of the Cross, you are no longer bound by them or to them.
You can take ALL of Him.
You are empowered by the Cross to receive His new mercies, new vision, a new attitude, new faith, and new life.
It is not a magic trick, it is a relationship.
It is not like a video game “cheat code” that jumps you past all the hard parts to win at the end.
God begins where you are and walks with you all the way to the end.
You belong to God and He belongs to you.
Blessed is the people of who this is true.
