Psalms 32: 1-2 (1) " Blessed, happy , fortunate, to be envied is he who has forgiveness of his transgression continually exercised upon him, whose sin is covered. (2) Blessed, happy, fortunate, to be envied is the man whom the Lord imputes no iniquity and in whose spirit there is no deceit." Amplified Bible
If you have been washed in the blood of Christ Jesus for the remission of your sins and have received forgiveness then you can walk in this verse. You are called blessed, happy, fortunate and to be envied by those who know you. Those who are not blessed and happy with envy your happiness as well as your state of blessings. Yet these are your rights by salvation through the blood of Christ Jesus. He paid the ultimate price through sacrifice that we as HIS children could be blessed, happy and fortunate. Even in the lowest times of your life if you are a child of God you are still blessed! Situations and life moments do not dictate if a child of God is blessed or not. Life happens and is not always a bed of roses. There will be times when the thorns of life come along and scratch you. Yet even in the midst of these times you are blessed! Happiness is a state of mind. It is not a physical item that can be displayed in your house of car. It comes from within your heart! Happiness can be displayed in your countenance for others to see. But true happiness can only come from the Father! And if you are happy it should shine through on a daily basis even in the midst of trials and tribulations. Happiness is a state of being that only comes from knowing that you are saved, set free and loved by the Father through the blood of Jesus Christ. Happiness cannot be bought and cannot be appropriated through having things. Happiness comes sweeping in at the the moment of salvation. Happiness is not a momentary feeling. It is deeply born of forgiveness through the blood of Jesus. You can only experience true happiness when you know that you are unconditionally loved by God. And yes, as a believer you and I are very fortunate! Even though we go through times of trials, tribulations and life events that may shatter our immediate world. We are still fortunate. We have Gods' Holy Spirit living on the inside of us and nothing can separate us from HIS love. We are fortunate to live in a time where we can worship God with freedom and liberty. We are fortunate to live in a time where God is still doing miracles regardless of what the world may think. We are fortunate that Christ Jesus took our sins upon Himself so that we could live life in freedom from bondage. We no longer have to have animal sacrifice to please God. We can come boldly before the throne of God through the blood of Christ Jesus. We can worship God in spirit and in truth. The veil has been lifted and we can sup at the table of the Lord all we wish. We have a direct line of communication with God through HIS Son! Jesus is sitting at the right hand of God making intercessions on our behalf! Yes, we are most assuredly blessed, happy and fortunate! And yes we are to be envied by those who are still lost. Why? Because we have peace even when there is turmoil all around us. We have blessings upon our lives continually. We are fortunate that we are saved through the blood of Christ Jesus from a living hell not only in this lifetime, but also in the time to come. Hell is not a dead place. It is a place of eternal seperation from God and all those whom have accepted Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior! Hell is a place of torment for those who refuse to acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God and as their living Savior! Hell is a place of eternal unforgiveness for the lost. Hell is very real and is awaiting those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior and turn away from sin. Each person will stand before God and declare Christ as Savior and King on the day of judgement. Both saved and unsaved alike. Both those which are blessed, happy and fortunate as well as those who have envied those who are blessed. Can you say you are blessed, happy, fortunate and envied in Christ Jesus by those who are not? Or are you in the group who envy those who have freedom in Christ Jesus through the blood which He shed on the cross for all of us. It only takes a few moments to become full of His blessings, peace and happiness. I encourage you today if you do not know Christ as Lord and Savior that you make Him so now. It is so easy to come into the Kingdom of God. First you must see your need for Christ Jesus as your savior. Then and only then will you have a desire to be one of the blessed, happy, fortunate and to be envied people of God. It is my prayer that if you do not know Christ as your personal Lord and Savior that you will come to know him. It is so easy and simple. Nothing is hard about becoming saved.
1) Admit that you are a sinner in need of salvation
2) Beleive that Jesus is the one and only living Son of God
3) Confess your sins and ask God to forgive you in the name of Jesus.
By doing these three simple things you can have the assurance of HIS blessings, peace, and HIS ever present help. May God bless you and keep you in all that you do.
