Are You Blessed?

"Jesus replied, 'Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it' " (Luke 11:28).

The Greek word for blessed is makarios which means supremely blessed; fortunate, well off-blessed, happy.

Oh Lord, am I truly listening to your magnificent voice when I read your word? Am I obeying the instructions I find there? You often speak a verse straight to my heart. I so desire to follow where you guide. My spirit is willing, but my flesh is weak. So I'm holding on to your promise that your amazing grace is sufficient for me, for your power is made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). In the powerful name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
