#261 Seven Things About the Blessed
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number two hundred sixty-one of this series, Seven Things About the Blessed.
I am always amazed at how God can say so much in so few words. The first three verses of the first Psalm are a good example. Verse one starts with “Blessed is the man” and verse three ends with “he prospers”. A blessing is an enablement and the result of the enablement is that the blessed of God prosper.
Seven Things About the Blessed:
- The blessed person does not walk with or listen to the wicked.
- The blessed person stands strong and maintains his righteousness when confronted by sinners.
- The blessed person does not abide with, dwell with, or participate with a scoffer.
- The blessed person delights in God’s righteous rules.
- The blessed person thinks about God’s word day and night.
- The blessed person lives strong and is fruitful during each season of his entire life.
- The blessed person prospers in all that he does.
The ground was cursed in Genesis 3.17 because Adam and Eve disobeyed God. All mankind was blessed in Genesis 26.4-5 because Abraham obeyed the voice of God and kept God’s charge, God’s commandments, God’s statues, and God’s laws. Abraham did not, as many do today, decide which of God’s righteous rules are for them. Abraham honored God in everything and therefore, he was blessed in everything. Will you commit to honor God in everything and be blessed? God wants to bless you with the good of God.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
Ps 1:1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; Ps 1:2 but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. Ps 1:3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.
