Good morning, Family:
Happy Tuesday. I’m full of joy this morning. Yes, I am experiencing life, just like you. Yes, I have bills to pay. Yes, I have to drive in Atlanta traffic. Do you know what else? I’M BLESSED!!!
I’m blessed because I know that God has it under control. I’m blessed because I know God has a plan and a purpose for my life. I’m blessed because not only do I have what I need, but God has blessed me with a lot of what I desire.
More than anything, I’m blessed because I have an intimate and personal relationship with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He truly is the Gift that keeps on giving. Meditate on the scripture passage below, from Deuteronomy 28 as you listen to the late Rev. Clay Evans minister in song.
The Message (MSG)
28 1-6 If you listen obediently to the Voice ofGod, your God, and heartily obey all his commandments that I command you today,God, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of God, your God:
God’s blessing inside the city,
God’s blessing in the country;
God’s blessing on your children,
the crops of your land,
the young of your livestock,
the calves of your herds,
the lambs of your flocks.
God’s blessing on your basket and bread bowl;
God’s blessing in your coming in,
God’s blessing in your going out.
7 God will defeat your enemies who attack you. They’ll come at you on one road and run away on seven roads.
8 God will order a blessing on your barns and workplaces; he’ll bless you in the land thatGod, your God, is giving you.
9 God will form you as a people holy to him, just as he promised you, if you keep the commandments of God, your God, and live the way he has shown you.
10 All the peoples on Earth will see you living under the Name of God and hold you in respectful awe.
I love you with the amazing and everlasting love of the Lord.
Rev. Marcia F. Davis
