Today’s Scripture: Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. 1¬†Corinthians¬†15:58

What is the kind of life God blesses? Do you want to live such a life? Do you want to experience God’s hand of blessing on you? Of course you do. I would venture to say that every person reading this reflection wants to live the kind of life that God blesses.

Are you living that kind of life? Do you believe the lie of the world when it says to drink this certain drink and you will be living the “good life”? Do you believe the lie of Satan when he says to follow him and he will give you worldly wealth and power? Or do you really want to live the kind of life that God blesses? Do you want to know the real joy of good living?

R.A. Torrey said, “There is wonderful freedom in this life of simply following Jesus. This path is straight and plain. But the path of one who tries to shape his conduct by observing the conduct of others is full of twists and turns and pitfalls. Keep looking at Jesus. Follow where He leads.”

Draw close to the Lord and He will bless your life. Follow Jesus with your whole heart. Keep your eyes fixed on His dear face. He wants to bless you. You just need to walk close to Him.
