You’re Blessed!

Good Day, Beautiful People.

Most of us believers are familiar with Beatitudes. We have something that the world is lacked and no one can take that away from you regardless your circumstances. I have been reading and meditating on this passage for sometime. My world changer friend was sharing the message version with my amazing group of business and working sisters fortnight ago. I simply love this modern day message version. Especially, if you are a newbie believer, this is a good version to start. As some of you may find it difficult to understand some old and ancient English versions. This just brings you to a better appreciation as you read this over and over again slowly. Soak in the word and you will sense His peace upon you.

You’re blessed in St Matthew
5 1-2 When Jesus saw his ministry drawing huge crowds, he climbed a hillside. Those who were apprenticed to him, the committed, climbed with him. Arriving at a quiet place, he sat down and taught his climbing companions. This is what he said:

3 “You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.

4 “You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.

5 “You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.

6 “You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.

7 “You’re blessed when you care. At the moment of being ‘care-full,’ you find yourselves cared for.

8 “You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.

9 “You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.

10 “You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom.

11-12 “Not only that—count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don’t like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble.

Ask yourself which of the Beatitudes speak to you the most.
Challenge yourself what you like to see happening this year. Believe for that miracle to become flesh this year.

Some of us can definitely relate to this:

The Beatitudes Song
Blessed are the poorest ones
For heaven comes to where they are in You
In You
Blessed are the ones who mourn
For comfort comes to find them all in You
In You

Those who seek will be made right
They will be filled and lifted high in You
In You
Blessed are the merciful
For mercy will be shown to them by You
By You

[Chorus]
O blessed are the ones who call Your name
And blessed are the ones You save
O You bless the pure in heart
We will see our God, we will see our God

Those who long for making peace
They will be called the children of our God
Of our God
Blessed are the meek
For they receive the earth
And all that’s found in You
In You

[Chorus]
O blessed are the ones who call Your name
And blessed are the ones You save
O You bless the pure in heart
We will see our God, we will see our God

If just to know You
If just to love You
What more can I ask for
What more can I ask for

If just to know You
If just to love You
What more can I ask for
What more can I ask for

[Chorus]
O blessed are the ones who call Your name
And blessed are the ones You save
O You bless the pure in heart
We will see our God, we will see our God
We will see our God, we will see our God

Persecuted we will stand
For our reward is heaven here and now
And still to come

Link for The Beatitudes Song:

Let me end this with the Aaronic Blessing prayer over you.
May the Lord BLESS and PROTECT you;
May the Lord’s face radiate with JOY because of you;
May he be GRACIOUS to you,
Show you His FAVOUR, and give you His PEACE.

  1. Another great blog! Was that the Message Bible version? Personally, I find verse 8 to be very powerful once one experiences the difference. Thanks for the refreshing post and for your prayer. I pray God continues to bless you and your ministry.
