The Places Of Blessing
The place of blessing is in God*s will for your life. Are you there? Am I? The place of blessing is at God*s right hand. The place of blessing is walking with Him. The place of blessing is in obeying His commands. The place of blessing is where He leads you. The places of blessing are not always what we would choose. The places of blessing are sometimes in difficulties. The place of blessing is sometimes in the presence of enemies. The place of blessing is in God*s goodness and mercy. The place of blessing is the House of the Lord. The place of blessing is sometimes in persecution. The place of blessing is sometimes in chastisement. The place of blessing is sometimes in affliction. The place of blessing is in faith in God. The place of blessing is in studying the Bible. The place of blessing is not in your own will. Sin always takes us out of the places of blessing.
