“Bless the Lord, all you His hosts, you who serve Him, doing His will. Bless the Lord, all you works of His, in all places of His dominion; bless the Lord, O my soul!” (Psalm 103:21-22)


What is blessing? Is it not the product of what happens in the good life? Is it not what you look at when you see something done well? To bless the Lord is to do what He commands and to walk in His ways. Nature obeys the command of the Lord and we receive its blessing. Do bless the Lord in all of Your ways knowing that the Lord blesses us all through all of His ways, for He is always good.

Lord, You know that I have these thoughts and they are good. But You also know that I have other actions and thoughts that are evil. I live in an age that knows good and evil. Help me, O Lord, to see into the truth that You are the only one that can lead me into true blessing. Guide me out of the mire of this age to be a blessing to others and to bless You in all of my ways.

Without Your grace, Lord Jesus, it would be impossible. Help me, O Lord, to walk in Your shadow and to move in the way You would have me move. Lead me in thought, word and deed to learn how to walk this life of faith. In Your grace, Lord, pull me through every valley to see the blessings that You give that I might persevere in faith to become like You. Amen.
