He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”
God gave us his word to bless us.
When we obey what he asks of us, we get to walk in that blessing.
On the other hand, as Jesus reminded us at the end of the Sermon on the Mount, when we know the will of God and don't obey it, we are foolish. I don't know about you, but I prefer to receive a blessing!
Thank God for speaking to us through his written word, the Scriptures, so we can know his will and walk in his blessing and for speaking to us through his living Word, his Son, so we can know his heart as we apply it to our lives.
Thank you, Father, for revealing your will to me through the Scriptures. Today, I commit to live intentionally in your will and to live obediently to your word. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
