Blessed Is...

Most people want practical, sensible answers when they read their Bible. It's not about feelings and nice stories, but learning exactly what God wants us to do with our lives.

So when I started a personal study on blessings, I was very surprised to see that God has once again spelled out in simple language what He expects from us.

Here are just a few of the answers to these questions:
* How are we blessed?
* Why does God bless us?
* What characteristics are there in people who are blessed?
* When are we blessed?

I've included the verses, and I encourage you to do some reading and studying on your own.

Blessed is:

- are those who are saved. (Psalm 32:1)

- are those who trust God implicitly. (Psalm 40:4)

- are those who are willing to learn. (Psalm 94:12)

- are those who are alert, listening and patient to hear what God has to say. (Proverbs 8:34)

- are those who are about the Lord's business. (Matthew 24:46)

- are those who are committed to God. (Luke 7:23)

- are those who are looking for Jesus' returning. (Revelation 16:15)

There are many, many more verses that have the "blessed is..." phrase in them. Do a word search or concordance study to find even more.
