“Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine within your house, your children like olive plants around your table. Behold, for thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord.” (Psalm 128:3-4)
The Lord has a purpose for all situations. To be blessed is to grow in the way of the Lord. Walk in His provision and know the goodness He gives to those who love Him. The one who fears the Lord seeks to walk in all of His ways. The one who loves the Lord listens to and obeys Him. Come into the Lord’s presence and receive the blessing He has for those who follow Him in all of His ways.
Lord, help me to see through all of the ideas that are out there that do not lead me in the way of faithfulness. Help me to learn how to be faithful and how to be blessed. Guide me in all of Your ways that I may learn how to love as You love. Teach me to live as You created me to live that I would now and forever be guided by Your goodness and mercy. Lead me more fully into grace.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead those who follow into everlasting life. Guide me this day according to Your goodness that I would walk by Your grace in the way of righteousness. Help me to see the obstacles to walking by faith that I may learn from You how to be faithful. Lead me, Lord Jesus, for You alone know all that I need this day to walk in the Father’s blessing. Amen.
