HOW TO BE BLESSED IN
Grace, mercy and peace to you from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
Dear friends, God in his great mercy allowed us to see the beginning of a new year and I am very happy to inform you that
this can be the greatest year of your life, if you will submit to God and obey his Holy Word.
The entire country is facing doom, gloom and recession, but the Holy Bible is very clear that there is no recession with God
and no lack to those who place their faith and trust in God Almighty. He is Jehovah-Jireh -- the Lord our provider.
things, may abound to every good work.
Matthew 6:33 Jesus said, but seek FIRST the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added
You have the choices in 2017 to follow your own heart and the counsel of men or to believe in the God of heaven and earth,
who loves you and who can supply all your needs and desires.
Psalm 1 says, blessed (happy) is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly.....but his delight is in the law of the
Lord and in his law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth his fruit
in his season, whose leaf also shall not wither and whatever he does shall prosper.
Key points from Psalm 1 to experience God's blessings:
1. Don't walk in ungodly counsel. Instead, listen to God and obey His instruction.
2. As you meditate in God's Word daily, your faith will be strengthened and your mind will be renewed. You will experience
God's peace, His power and His presence in your life.
3. God will give you wisdom, instruction and direction from his Word that will lead to blessing and prosperity in your home,
4. As you immediately obey God, you will experience God's favour and goodness for all of 2017. When you face any
trouble, the Lord will be with you, to guide you and keep you.
Change your thinking and take action to move from where you are to where God wants you to be. Repent of your sins, be
water baptized, pray every day and attend Church regularly. Love Jesus, Worship Jesus and Honour Jesus with your living
and giving. Love your family, protect your children and care for your elderly parents. Love and forgive others. Put away bit-
terness and anger. Take care of your health. Work hard and invest your money wisely. Give God what is due unto God, pay
your taxes and obey the law of the land. Be holy, be pure and be honest in all your words and deeds. Keep your word. Pray
for the country and let us build together.
May the God of Heaven richly bless you in all things in 2017 and may His peace (shalom- wholeness, wellness, fullness,
PLEASE PRAY THIS PRAYER TO RECEIVE THE LORD JESUS:
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for allowing me to start this New Year. Lord Jesus, I give you my heart and I surrender my life
to you. Please forgive me of all my sins, come into my heart and be my Lord and my God. Lord Jesus, I receive you as my
Lord and Personal Saviour. Amen. (Please send me a text if you prayed the prayer.)
