In His Word, God tells us about His wonderful blessings, but He also tells us how to receive His blessings – by having clean hands and a pure heart. God wants you to receive every blessing that He has in store for you.
You may ask, â€œHow are we made pure and clean?â€ By the blood of Jesus! We receive Him as our Lord and Saviour and choose to live for Him. Most of the time, itâ€™s not the big things that keep us from Godâ€™s best; itâ€™s the small things. Maybe it starts with an offense that turns into unforgiveness. Maybe you watch something on TV or the internet that you know you shouldnâ€™t, and it becomes a bad habit that steals your time and pollutes your mind.
Today, why not make the decision to let go of anything that would keep you from His blessings. Be a person of excellence and integrity. Treat others with respect and kindness, and look for ways to be a blessing. Be determined to live a life that pleases God, so that you can receive the abundance He has in store for you!
â€œWho may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.â€ (Psalm 24:3â€“5, NKJV)
Yahweh, thank You for the blood of Christ that cleanses and renews me. Father, I choose to turn away from anything that displeases You and robs me of my blessings. God, I receive all You have for me today, so that I can live righteously before You, in Christâ€™ name! Amen.
