As she stood there in line waiting for her food, she suddenly heard a lady barge back up to the front of the counter; “Excuse me, excuse me”. Does this meal come with bread?
The young man replied, ”Oh, yes mam”.
Had she not known, she would have missed out on the benefit of the bread. She had to go back and get it. It took knowing and then going.
God does not want you just to be saved and slide into Heaven when he returns to get us, He wants you to live now……with His benefits!
Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—Psalms 103:2-
As you read on in the scriptures, He lists them:
As you read on, in (v 11-18), The key to these benefits is to fear him and obey Him, Good fear or reverential fear and obedience comes from knowing Him......... No other way.
17But the loving kindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children,
18To those who keep His covenant And remember His precepts to do them.
Is there an area in your life where you’re not receiving His benefits?
Learn what they are and do what it takes, “Go get them!”
Teach me your benefits through your Word. Help me to do what it takes to receive them. I want more of what you have for me. Amen.
