“By the God of your father who will help you, and by the Almighty
Who will bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the
deep that lies beneath, blessings of the breasts and of the womb.”
We are blessed by our Father from day one, at birth and throughout our lives, but we don’t even recognize these blessings. Our broken nature sees negatively in all matters of life. Unfortunately our first thoughts are, can this be? Instead of remembering our God and that all things are possible with Him, we focus on the negative. Why is this? It began when Adam and Eve fell in the garden of Eden and ate from the tree of good and evil, after God had told them not to eat or touch it or they would die.
Since that time, we are living in a fallen world where sin exists and our minds are darkened to truth. However, I have said all of this to illustrate that it was God’s unfathomable love and goodness that created us in the beginning. Therefore, we are blessed above words; our problem is that we fail to thank God for any of it.
Isn’t this LOVE, that after all of this God would continue to bless and fill our cups to overflowing? I have found through life that the more we thank God for all that He brings into our lives, the more He fills our cup. The greater our obedience, the greater the blessings. It is like a rain gauge, the more rain that falls the higher the gauge goes. The more we love, praise and worship God in thankfulness, the fuller our cups will be filled. We cannot love or praise and thank Him too much for He is worthy of all that we are capable of giving. I’m reminded of the song, “Fill My Cup Lord:”
Like the woman at the well, I was seeking For things that never satisfy And then I heard my Savior speaking “Draw from the well that never will run dry” Chorus: Fill my cup, Lord I lift it up, Lord Come and quench this thirsting in my soul Bread of Heaven feed me till I want no more Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole!
“Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord. who walks in His ways.”
