Romans 4:6-8

King James Version (KJV)

1 Peter 3:9

King James Version (KJV)

Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

Blessing is a promise of eternal life from God.  It is promise of a life filled with happiness.  It doesn’t mean there will always be roses in the garden.  There will be hardships.

A blessing can be a small answer to prayer and the ability to pay one bill.  Blessings require that one live by faith.  It does not require one to be perfect but aspire to be perfect and have a heart that desires this.

Look at David and all his short coming’s.  God forgave all of his mistakes.  I believe because in David’s heart he truly saught God.  Blessings happen every day.  One has to look for these blessings.  Anyone can discount anything.  However, the next time one has a lucky roll in life, think about what is going on in your life. Are you praying? Are you being positive? Kind to others?

Blessings are happening every day.  Myself I have seen miracles.  One lady with cancer gained 35 pounds she never seemed to shed, while going through chemo.

I could go on and on.  Yet, you either believe in what I have said or not.  If you want personal testimony comment and I will reply.
